I'm assuming there were no women on the naming team at Apple. Because, hey, when women hear or read the word pad, we think Kotex and cramps. I wouldn't mind the name so much if I could buy one at my local CVS.
The twitterverse is already full of iPad jokes. Here are some of my favorites:
@getsmartradio: is it really called iPad? Did Apple merge with Kotex
@KristinaWeise: The #iPad - too easy to insert a woman's comment here. "Much more intimate than a laptop and more capable than a smart phone," Jobs said.
@twifftwin: the iPad sounds like a feminine hygiene product for robot ladies.
Thank you for the laughs Apple! Can't wait to see what you come up with next -- hopefully the iPon -- for the younger, hipper women who also love Apple products.
