Who’s calling the Apple iPad the ‘iTampon’ on Twitter? The ‘real’ geeks, that’s who. According to the Cult of Mac, while everyone else is buzzing about the PC brand’s latest must-have, there is an inevitable geek iPad backlash brewing.
The geek iPad backlash stemmed first from the fact that the iPad lacks a hard keyboard and second from what Adam Frucci of Gizmodo calls its “backbreaking failures.”
My question is: does it matter? The iPad really is just for the ordinary person who wants a portable and light PC. As Leander Kahney from the Cult of Mac puts it, “This is a machine you’d buy for your grandmother and not have to worry about tech-support.”
