Confession #22: Going (and Giving) Nuts for the iPad

I won’t try to be coy here. I am going to buy the iPad when it comes out. But that worries me a little. Steve Jobs explained that it’s an awesome product between the laptop and the smartphone. That sounds fine in theory. But here’s my dilemma.


I am sitting on the couch. My laptop is resting on my left thigh. My smartphone is in my right pocket. Without getting too graphically anatomical, I currently have a pretty important thing in between these two devices. I’ve already ceded my personality, creativity and self-worth to internet-connected machines. And now they want my genitals too.

At least in this case I’ll get to choose which size model I want.
