I like most people hate the name for Apple's new IPad. I believe Apple should change the name to something more normal. Like:

iGo
iTablet
etc.

What do you guys think?

That Apple shouldn't have created the iPad in the first name. It's a huge iTouch with a few more characteristics and different apps. Silly money lovers.

iSlate was the original name, the HP d-blocked them by making their shit tablet called the Slate. Even still, they should've called it iTab instead.. it's what I always end up calling it unintentionally anyway.

iTab
iThrewmy£$£away
iStation
iGiant iTouch

There are many names they should have given it.
It's a bit of a flop, really.

Its not a flop, even if its not successful, it serves as a media fab to distract people from stagnant iPhone market growth, and Apple's 9 month old line of Laptops which could very easily be sold in 2008 and still turn 20% margins. I'm still heavily invested in the Apple Stock Train, but I think my stops coming up. That is unless they iPhone 4 is a home run.

Companies these days have really bad ideas about what we want.

Apple - Made a giant iPod Touch.
Nintendo - Made a smaller, rounder DS lite, with a bigger screen (at the SAME pixel rate), with a heavier, bulkier stylus.
Sony - Made a PSP with a flip screen that runs of download only, so for those without a router, or with a dialup, it's a bit useless.

They're all not the best, and Apple's iPad especially is really supposed to be portable.
You wouldn't see me with it in my back pocket.

The iPad puzzles me.

It seems like a flop, but Apple must be up to something. I mean, they must have done tons of market research before even considering the concept, and they must have poured hundreds of millions of dollars (or more? IDK) into producing this thing. It must benefit/bolster their business in some way, but I can't see how considering everyone's talking about it's a useless piece of garbage.
