"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

The iPad?!?!?!?

One mystery has been answered by the release of Apple's latest sure-to-be-a-hit product, the iPad. The crack staff at Apple NEVER watched MadTv. If Apple had even one MadTV fan on there staff, they never would have named their brand new mini-laptop the iPad. Just watch this...

As SB Sarah said,
The iPad, now available in Light, Maxi, and Super (8Gb, 16Gb 64Gb)? As Tessa Dare said, are there NO women at Apple who could have given them the heads up (HA) that this is a BAD NAME?

Please someone tell me they’ll just name the next device iVAGINA and be done with it? Is this how they’re targeting female technology consumers and book readers? Sweet holy crap.

Hmmmm, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the uber-geeks at Apple were rabid MadTv fans and that is where they got the name. I wonder if this skit reveals the names of their next few products?

Sadly, I think my prior knowledge of the MadTv iPad sketch has added this to the list of things I can NEVER, EVER take seriously.

Oy... I just can't believe they chose that name. The mad tv clips are hilarious, tho.

Couldn't watch the clips (at work), but one of my FB friends posted yesterday that she's waiting on the iTampon.

LOL - I totally thought of that when I heard the iPad announcement yesterday! You are too funny!

Those are seriously funny. The Ipad really doesn't seem like the best choice for a name.
