An Apple staffer’s POV on the iPad

This is how my January 27 went: After a late night, I woke up at 12:00PM EST, took a shower, ate, then glued myself in front of my Mac. I sat for an hour and a half, as the company I work for unveiled its latest creation. (Full disclosure: I work for Apple retail.) I wasn’t pleased. I then made my way to my Xbox 360 and took out my displeasure on those…

iPad: The future as we (don’t yet) know it

A random conversation (from the year 2040): “Remember back in the old days when computers had a separate screen and keyboard?” “Oh, yeah, and they had those stupid screens that you couldn’t touch? Well, you could, but nothing happened?” “Yeah! You had to move your fingers over this little tiny square in front of the screen to move the, what was…

POLL: So who wants an iPad, anyway?

Like many workplaces today, ours was abuzz with talk of what we now know is the iPad tablet computer. We all shook our heads over the name. iPad? I’ll spare you the jokes you have no doubt heard by now. Well, no matter – I wanted to know whether or not real people wanted this thing, so I did an informal survey of my coworkers. (I’m a cardiac nurse in New…

My first reaction to the iPad

This Apple tablet has been the one of the most talked-about, hyped, rumored devices in recent memory. So with the official announcement behind us now, let’s consider what has just been announced today. Well, first – I don’t dig this name. Sounds like a feminine product, no? But I digress.

Apple announces AT&T Data Plans for iPad

Like many others I have been crossing my fingers that Apple’s tablet would step away from the iPhone-AT&T exclusivity club. Unfortunately Steve Jobs went on to utter the words “We have a breakthrough deal with AT&T.” My first thought was, “Oh he’ll add, ‘One more thing; they’re not the only ones to get this,’” but sadly enough that…

The iPad specs

So they finally did it: Apple finally pulled the trigger on its tablet device, which has now been formally unveiled as the iPad.

We’ll have plenty of coverage on the device, but here’s a quick look at some of the major…

A gamer’s take on the iPad

Are you kidding me?  All those late nights, sitting around the campfire over there in Cupertino, and the best you could give us is the name “iPad”? iSlate or iTablet would have fit the bill, but no, that would have been too easy. Apple had to throw its little spin on things, that I understand, but to force me to use the term iPad every time I…
