Wow. If I never believed in the power of fads and blind Apple devotion before, the lunatic fawning over the iPad by the media does the trick. What a load of crap!
Exactly how “revolutionary” is a giant iPod Touch that doesn’t make phone calls, can’t play most videos on the internet, can’t multitask, has a big “scratch me!” uncovered screen, requires a hardwired link to another PC and makes you use Apple’s iTunes, iBooks, iMonopoly, etc., just to get your own picture of Grandma on it?
Even the dumb “look! I can flip pages by waving my finger! can your Kindle do that?” argument is countered with “uh, no, but I can with my Nook!”
Personally, I think Pee Wee has the right idea…
