Women love the iPad almost as much as vacuuming!

1 Feb

An amazingly sexist and ignorant article from PC MAG (written by a man of course):
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2358599,00.asp

some choice quotes:

“Is it as big as a laptop?” they’d ask. I told one woman that it was roughly the size of a manila folder. This seemed to surprise and intrigue her as she, perhaps, imagined slipping it into her purse.

Do you think it’s any accident that Steve Jobs showed off the Facebook app working on the iPad? I’m sure more than a few women have already imagined themselves checking their Facebook pages and using that large virtual keyboard to update their status, all while sitting comfortably on their couch.

The iWork productivity suite appears engineered to appeal to moms who have to create PTA flyers, manage home budgets, and help their children create presentations for school.

Mom will have it propped up in her kitchen where she can see it. It’ll remind her of appointments and entertain her with her favorite shows while she works in her home office or the kitchen.
