As I'm checking out the latest gadgetry from Apple (the iPad,) I'm struck by the bad name. iPad? Really? They couldn't think of something else?
OH -- the creative community is just going to eat this one up, I'm sure. We're so fond of poor, feminine hygenie humor (iPad? ha! what about iTampon? iFemHy? baw-ha-ha-hah!!) And while all this is going on, I'm going to be asking -- did they talk to any girls about this product (notice the lack of them in their introductory video)? I hate to feel like the PC police, but after umpteen years in this biz, I'm weary of tawdry, cringe-inducing humor especially at the expense of my female counterparts.
In the meantime, I'm going to keep an eye on this gadget because this girl has been waiting for a color version of Amazon's Kindle -- which I've heard is YEARS from being a reality. bad name, or not -- iPad is a cool product.
