Apple just announced its iPAD. Is it truly a must-have? Is it as essential for a woman’s electronic needs as her other “pad” is for her sanitary needs?
I walked into an Apple store to ask more details about their latest must-have gadget, the iPad. I knew there was tons of negativity surrounding the name, but thought what’s in a name, right?
After all, Steve Jobs shrugged off the comments, stating, “The fonts look great together…iPod, iPhone, iPad.”
When I actually asked the male salesperson my question, his face got all goofy and I actually got embarrassed. It was such an uncomfortable situation and far from my usual happy-happy-joy-joy experiences at the Apple store.
There is NO way Apple has female in their marketing department. What was Steve Jobs and his head of marketing Phil Schiller clearly need some estrogen in their top management.
Check out the MadTV iPad video from the now defunct television show which came out BEFORE Apple announced their name. I’m sure even the MadTV execs never dreamt Apple would be this silly in real life.
As for the product itself, the reviews are quite mixed. But, one thing is for sure. It’s not quite as essential as its namesake.
