iPad SchmiPad I’m Slate’d




It sure is pretty, but does it do enough?

Yea, so it’s here. It’s cool and all, but it doesn’t cure cancer or bring world peace. It won’t solve the problems with the Red Sox blowing leads late in games nor will it help the Cubs win a World Series.

This is one speculative guess on what the iSlate Tablet might look like.

Despite having used and abandoned multiple tablets over the years, I’m still looking forward to Apple’s much anticipated iSlate, iPad or iMustHaveIt Tablet (or whatever it will be called).
