But heres an even better article:

The sketch comedy show MAD TV has some fun with their version of the iPad. (Fox/YouTube)

The world's abuzz today with news of the iPad, the latest life-changing device from Steve Jobs and his band of wacky Apple elves. But in all the commotion over this cutting-edge technological development, we've lost sight of one important fact: the iPad is old news.

Back in the summer of 2006, the jokers at MAD TV unveiled their own, er... personal electronic tool, which they dubbed the iPad, in a sketch that parodied both those ubiquitous iPod commercials and the cringe-inducing chipperness of feminine hygiene ads. [WARNING: The content of the following clip is somewhat racy.]

The iPad that was just released by apple is utter shit. No multi-app support, no camera, no HDMI or USB ports, no e-ink...why the fuck are they charging $500 for an over sized iPod Touch? Oh cant forget it comes with DRM. Lol and I thought the $1000 Mac Mini server that you could build yourself for $600 was a joke, this takes the cake.

Personally I think the HP Slate looks much much better. Not only does it look somewhat the same as the iPad but it has all the shit that the iPad is lacking lol. Steve Jobs needs to stop assuming Apple Fanboys are gonna buy evert piece of shit he pulls out of his ass.

oh you can play games....only games approved by apple in the app store. It really is a waste of $500-800 (depending on what model you get).

It sounds like they just wanted to make a color version of the kindle. Reminds me of how Sega made the Game Gear to beat out the Game Boy. We all know how that turned out. :nod:

apple has a cult following the size of a religion...

And knowing apple this thing will be obsolete soon considering they'll probably be releasing a completely new hardware version of it in 6 months anyway. :P

I know 2 die hard fanboys that see no reason to buy this and are confused by their god Steve jobs would sell such a piece of shit. I also know another Mac fanboy that wants to buy one to link with his Apple TV but everyone at work is telling him he's stupid lol.

What's funny is the FCC hasn't even approved this yet. That's why Apple cant sell it for 60 days.

      The Trailer doesn't show much of anything except for the title of the game. I liked Firefly and the movie Serenity.. I'm not certain I'll care for a smartphone game though. I doubt it will ever get as popular as Angry Birds, but it could still be fun if its done right.

      So if they remove identifiers to no longer associate an individual with the questions asked to Siri.. then what about the content of the questions or information shared with Siri? All those peoples names, addresses, etc. are all saved on Apple's systems? "Call so and so", "Give me directions to this persons address", etc., etc. All that info is saved.. wtf.
