I understand that the "technology" of the iPad (which only makes me think of period blood, and will always make me think of period blood) is soo0oo0 great but let me also say these things:
it is expensive
it does not run on a real OS X - only the iPhone OS (cool?)
it is being advertised with an incredibly stupid “keyboard thing” that looks fugly (because why would you need to orient it on a desk with a keyboard and lug all that shit along with you to a different place anyway??)
it is oriented portrait with a strange screen size, making it useless for video watching (it’s only potentially cool on-the-go use)
My iPod touch is fine just the way it is - i.e. small, fits into my pocket, and not fucking awkward
Every rendering I have seen about what it could potentially look like was way fucking cooler
You cannot use two applications at once, so uh, wait - Android operating systems/phones are still better
I never want to hear you talk about, see it in your hands, or see it on my internet again after today
Thank you and good night. Unless you bought an iPad today, and then you’ll need to spend all night making yourself an iPad MAXI cover or something. Go cry with some tissues. Ugh.
Curse you MTV for making a semi-motivational tv show about four attractive men-boys that go around doing crazy, random, awesome things off of their list of things they want to do before they die! Also, I want nachos now. Ok.
Just tried reading an article about a design firm that specializes in niche-funny-shaped-box-making packaging….and it was only words. What? Really? You say you’re the only people making funny shaped boxes and you’re cool?? WHERE AREEEE THEYYYYYYY?
“Back in 1990, the government seized the Mustang Ranch Brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and possibly our health plans to the same nit-wits who couldn’t make money running a whore house and selling whiskey?!”—
