iPads: cool or lame?
Blake reckons. . .
Well 10 points if you can guess who picked this weeks topic – of course you got it right, Ck is no doubt the biggest computer nerd going around town, so when something like the new apple ipad is dropped, he will most certainly have something to say about it.
The Apple iPad2 is the latest must-have toy by Steve Jobs, and why wouldn’t you get one? They are so cool! Even if you never use the bloody thing, I guarantee that you will be the envy of all of your friends.
I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know much about the tech specifics of the Ipad – the speed or components of it – so I am not even going to try to sound tech savvy and explain.
It is twice as fast as the old one and half the thickness of the iPhone 4 which is awesome. I do know that this is a glorified iPhone that is significantly larger and I am a big fan.
The major reason of why anyone would want one is to totally boost their cool points among friends, peers and especially the ladies. And I’d give it to them, no longer do you have to worry about copping a wedgie or having your lunch money taken from you by the high school jocks for being a computer nerd. Because Apple have created a brand that is uber cool and totally sexy making the nerdiest of nerds look like handsome George Clooney with an iPad in hand.
In a world where image is everything and sex sells, do yourself a favour, buy a iPad 2 and tell everyone – heck, wear it ’ round your neck like a rapper wears bling, trust me you will be the coolest kid going around town.

Okay, I wont lie. I too got caught up in the hype of the digital fruit-toast of the computer world – the Ipad. It promised the world, and finally our dreams of having computers like in Minority Report, would come true.
Unfortunately, it didn’t, and I’m still typing on a keyboard, unlike Tom Cruise. The Ipad was the most over-hyped event of the digital century!
Now before you start hating, I’ve owned every product they’ve slapped an ’ I’ in front of. I love Apple. But when I use the Ipad, it feels like I’ve just been shot with that ray from Honey I Shrunk the Kids! It’s just a giant iphone that you can’t even call your mum on. It doesn’t even have a USB port!? Want to watch those nice HD videos you downloaded from iTunes on your TV? Too damned bad! No HDMI port!
Even the name ’ ipad’ how crap? Call it anything in the world, and you choose PAD? Why not use tab? Ok. Maybe not. FML Apple. You’re so close.
