iPad or #iTampon? Here's some of the serious (and not so serious) reaction to the reveal of Apple's iPad on Wednesday.
@mikeminer: The 2nd generation iPad will have a camera, be one-quarter the size and make phonecalls.
@harryallen: Please, stop these iPad jokes. Period.
@directorjc: Was initially really excited for iPad, but I'm thinking that, without multi-tasking, what can I do on it that I can't on my iPhone?
@Clairesalloum: Maybe I'm following the wrong (right) people, but all I'm hearing about iPad is that everyone is tweeting about it.
@brundle_fly: it's like we're all reliving the segway.
@priyamaine: Maybe the existence of the iPad will help stop men from blushing when buying feminine hygiene products for their partners?
@loudandskittish: So, if Apple can release the iPad for $500, why do cellphones still cost $600 without a subsidy?
@InklessPW: What'll make iPad big is open app development. 1000s of iPhone developers will make Apple, at last, home to prolific software innovation.
@funkstop: Doesn't Apple have any brown people working for them? iPad means iFart in most Indian languages #smartmarketing
@palafo: What iPad lacks: camera, (easy) ability to make phone calls, Flash software, carrier choice.
@ metaphorge: Endless feminine hygiene product jokes about the iPad are awesome viral marketing for Apple.; branding team WINS.
@swerty: I normally love all things Apple, but I think I'll take a pass on the iPad. Name - horrible. Size - Unwield-ly. Not for me!
@Eldonko: giant ipod with a different name does not interest me.
@djkelly: It's a step. Many are already using smaller versions (iPod Touch/iPhone). The pricing model and iBooks are the real news tho.
@mmmbutters: As with any gadget, I will wait until a few friends get them and I can try it out with no pressure. And then I will decide.
@brownbaggingit: I think vook and iPad are going to be amazing companions
@codytorgerson: Huge! This is the next evolution in the personal computer. I can see so many applications for this.
@trevorbacque: Not that big. It's interesting and certainly has some cool features, as all Apple products do, but I will not buy it.
@nscafe: Like most things geek based, I'll let it mature a bit before shelling out cash.
@chamanbuga: iPad is a terrible product for the technically impairmed. It's an insult to say that it will replace netbooks or moderate PCer
@DavidBurkholder: i will be getting the ipad for university inseated of geting a laptop
@ztringz: No to the iPad for me. Targets the netbook market mostly, because its not a decent replacement for phone, laptop and tablet
