The BBC made this funny little clip about an ad exec who can't distinguish between an iPad and real life. So when''s the right time to stop making fun of the iPad? Easy: when it stops being funny.

About Nate Hoffelder (11466 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Stop speaking heresy!

    Don’t you know the iPad is 99% more open than all other computers:

    In all seriousness, this is very bad, long term, for Apple. Palm was never able to shake the reputation of being a toy for yuppies despite some excellent products later on. Once a product gets associated with people with more money than brains it’s going to be marginalised. Yuppies were bad enough, but getting associated with hipsters and trustafarians, the gorge rises!

  2. It’s true – eek as someone who has played freecell until I can see the cards when I close my eyes, it is a real danger. Hee hee

  3. Great! Thanks for posting.
    No one tells about the risks 😉
