Introducing the iPad, Wings not Included

Thanks to its feminine-hygiene-product overtones, the unfortunately evocatively named iPad that Apple have just unveiled for its new tablet PC is rapidly beoming an internet joke.

Soon after the launch Twitter was buzzing with tweets hashtagged with #itampon. In fact #itampon was trending before #ipad

The iPad measures 9.56 inches in height and is 7.47 inches wide. It weighs 1.5 kilograms. Full charged battery would last for about 10 hours at a stretch and 30 days in standby mode. It is not fully absorbent and does not come with wings.

Regardless of the name I am sure it will succeed and herald the next generation of computing however I don't think I will be buying one any time soon.
