The responses to iPad are brutal!

Man, people are tearing the iPad apart!  Aside from the numerous sanitary napkin jokes (I’m not putting a specific link – just google “iPad jokes” if you’ve got a free hour or so), many of the iPad’s potential users are having fairly lukewarm reactions to Apple’s newest release. 

A lot of people are saying “it’s a cross between an iPhone and a laptop”.  One commenter said  “it fills the gap between a phone and a laptop”, to which Martin’s blog has this to say:

“What gap? This is not a gap I have ever experienced in my working or social life before. You can’t just make up a gap and then invent a product to fill it. That’s like saying there’s a gap between a fridge and an oven, and trying to sell a kitchen unit that keeps all your food lukewarm to fill it. Or saying there’s a gap between cars and bikes, so lets make a car you can pedal. Who the hell wants a car that you can pedal? Who the hell wants an iPad?”

hehehe…he’s right.  But if someone gave me a car I could pedal for free, I’d take it.  I’d take an iPad for free, too.

    Some people are too negative. Yes, it is basically a large iPhone…but that’s still awesome! It’s true that I don’t have a gap in my life because I only have a cell phone and computer. However, there was a gap in Apple’s product line – they didn’t have a product that directly competed with netbooks and e-book devices. For people who have a gap in their life that may have been filled by a netbook or e-book device, they now have another very cool option.

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I am going to send this information to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
