Making Pad: The True Story of the iPad (video)

making padThis isn't strictly an ebook, ereader, or tablet news story but it is simply too funny not to share. On Saturday the funny folks at Mando Media released a parody of AMC's Breaking Bad. As you might now, that show features a terminally ill character who gets into drug-dealing in order to build a nest egg for his family. This parody stars Steve Jobs, and it goes in a slightly different direction:

A terminal cancer diagnosis sends Steve Jobs into beastmode, and into the lab with Jony Ive to cook up the most addictive substance known to man.

I won't spoil it by telling you what happens, but I will add that I nearly had to replace my keyboard.

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."
