The iPad is Here

Look! No buttons!

Hey look! It's some gadget my husband will insist he needs!

The iPad, unveiled today (read a live blog here) is apparently like a giant iPhone, for old people, I'm guessing. Those little numbers are hard to push.

Also, this is a terrible name. Like Apple just came out with its own line of sanitary napkins. Which makes me wonder what kind of apps would come with that.

    is proprietary garbage full of soul crushing DRM

    Seriously, when are people going to wake up and realize they all took the wrong pill?

    ..I was already hating Nintendo. By the '90s, though, I really thought this stuff would forever remain limited to video game consoles. Microsoft was the biggest threat to advancing the state of the art (and maybe they still are; I don't know), so I didn't worry much about the older enemy.

    Pretty naive. Now it looks like we're in for a hell of a battle.

    Maybe never. Apple's products are very slick and work well, and they deserve respect. People can use this stuff and never have any idea of what all they're missing. Never had to worry about that from Microsoft.
