Does this sound familiar?

So everyone’s busting a nut over the IPad. Let me see if I have got the facts straight here…
- It doesn’t do anything we can’t already do with netbooks, notebooks, the IPhone itself, Samsung/Motorola/HTC touchscreen smartphones. It boasts word processing and spreadsheets…something we’ve been able to do with any computer for 25 years. Ultimately, it’s a rehash of capabilities we already have.
- It costs a fortune. The fully-equipped model is over eight c-notes. For that price, you could pick up two or three netbooks that do the same crap. There’s plenty of other alternatives that cost far less, but we’re dazzled by the lofty notion that Apple is somehow better…and it’s nothing but advertising.
- It was built by a cult figure. Steve Jobs is worshipped by his company and customers as a sort of savior. They think he is The One. They think he is the one we’ve been waiting for. He inspires hope…and change.
Anyone up for an Apple Cider Party?
