    Your NEW iPad 2!!!! .... and the media

    I just want to rant for a moment, if you don't mind.

    WTF is it with the media being all over Apple's jock? Why is it whenever anything even REMOTELY related to a pad is mentioned do they say "iPad"? It makes me ill. If you've ever been in a newsroom you will observe ZERO Macs at a desk as a desktop system. The anchors? MOST do NOT carry iPhones, rather Blackberries. NONE have a pad, yet still drag an antiquated laptop around with them.

    To continue the iPad point, any time an accessory is mentioned, the lead is "And there's a new accessory you new Ipad 2 owners will want to have!!! but the end line is, "this will be compatible with most pads".

    And... I'm at a large work conference this week, and brought the XOOM with me. The second that thing came out of my bag it was, "OMG!!!! IT THAT THE NEW IPAD 2???!!!"
    "No. It is NOT."
    "Oh. Well, is it as good as an iPad 2?"
    "What?"
    "Well, is it?"
    "What makes the iPad 2 so "good"?"
    Blank stare followed by blinking....
    UGH!!!

    I especially like it when you go into a store like BestBuy and there is a guy getting his new ipad2 screen cleaned and a screen protector put on it. I am sitting there watching this guy berate the employee about how there are scratches in his screen and the screen protector has what he feels is bubbles in it. The store employee keeps telling him in 24-48 hours it should all be ok. Just let it be.

    The guy leaves and I say to the employee, "Too bad the fanboy didn't get himself an Android device!" The guy laughs. Then he showed me the Thunderbolt. That phone rocks.

    What do you want to bet the guy called the store and complained about those bubbles within the 24-48 hours?

    I fricken' hate Apple.
