Liz tee saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 12:44 pm
LOL! Wow – I think I have most of the components in my purse. Who knew?
WebSavvyMom saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 12:44 pm
–>That’s so big, shouldn it’ be a (MAX)I-PAD!?!?
Lizzy saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 12:47 pm
I’m waiting for the iPad upgrade… with wings.
La Suzette saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 12:56 pm
This is just WRONG on so many levels!
David saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 1:02 pm
I believe we old-schoolers would call that a rebus.
Gail K. saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 1:50 pm
Now that is an i-pad I can both figure out how to use and afford!
MomZombie saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Does this mean the Kindle is for “light days?” Is the i-Pad reserved for “those days” when the (information) flow is heavier? Does it come with its own “discreet” carrying case?
Shelley saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 2:15 pm
I thought Bossy and her council might appreciate this:
Pam from Ohio saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 2:20 pm
That made me laugh out loud. Soooo funny!
Christina saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 3:07 pm
You know… it’s only us women who are getting squirmy about the name. As usual, the men involved in the naming process didn’t snap to the association because… well, because they think the world is comprised of only men, and they don’t want to hear, think, or talk about women’s icky stuff or girly parts.
So if we don’t want to be further disrepsected and mocked in the press for Apple’s astonishing lack of good taste, we should exercise a little good taste ourselves and STOP TALKING ABOUT IT, after which it will die a natural death.
Sorry to inject a serious note here, where snarkiness is the required tone of voice, but I don’t think women’s unique bodily functions should be a source of either embarrassment on our part or derision on theirs. Women bring new life into the world, sometimes at the cost of our lives, and menstruation is part of that process. If that isn’t a task worthy of respect, rather than “Eeeeeeeew!” and humiliating jokes, I don’t know what is. It’s certainly of more value to the species than anything men do… which is why, of course, they make fun of it – and us.

Good one, Bossy!
km saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 4:40 pm
EEEww or not, Apple could have come up with something a bit more interesting. Is everything going to iSomething, like McDonalds McNugget, McCafe
I need to lie on my iBed
Dara saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 5:14 pm
Lisa S. saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 5:19 pm
And I’m SO glad I do not need an i-pad any more.
neener, neener, neener
The Domestic Goddess saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 5:41 pm
Now all we need is the iTampon. And the iDouche.
Seriously, Apple, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?????
Dumbest name, ever.
teri saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 5:51 pm
LOL. You’re very funny and creative, to boot.
Linda :) saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 6:59 pm
How much wine have you had this afternoon Missy 😉
Meredith saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 7:10 pm
Bwaaahhhaaaaa!! Excellent. I mean, really, did they think no one would think MAXipad when they named the thing?
meleah rebeccah saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 7:22 pm
Deb saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 7:30 pm
I’m sorry- that’s a classic- thanks for the creative artwork!
bossy's friend martha's sister saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 8:09 pm
oh bossy…. did you have to????? I was so excited to watch it’s video again online… now …what?
Jodi Anderson saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 8:45 pm
Bah! Ha ha hahahahaha ha!!
This seals the deal. No iPad for me. Maybe my husband would like one for Father’s Day and he could take it to work with him every day.
Not June Cleaver saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 11:07 pm
This reminds me of one of those funniest home videos sooooo many years ago. The mom walks into the living room and the little kids are playing and there are pads (the kind with “wings”) stuck all over the picture window (front of house). She asks the kids what they are doing and they gleefully reply, “Playing with the airplane stickers!!”
Cupcake Murphy saysJanuary 28, 2010 at 11:23 pm
I heard the runner-up name was the Apple Tampon

mitzie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 4:23 am
OK, I feel dumb. I must be the only woman in America that didn’t make that connection. Y’all astonish me.
Meg saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:56 am
I like Bossy’s picture and think it’s giggle-worthy despite Christina’s serious post. A high-tech device that makes everyone think of sanitary napkins is just, well, ineptly named.
Despite that, I think I really want one of those.
Elizabeth saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:01 am
The picture made me snort, then MomZombie’s comment made me snort again. I have absolutely no idea why anyone would NEED the ipad, since it’s just a really big Kindle. It won’t fit in a purse or jacket pocket, so people who buy one will have to buy some kind of special tote bag or something to carry it in, and for what? It’s ridiculous.Eli
km saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:55 am
IPad, the iPhone for the hard of sight, or the large-digited.
Sissy in Texas saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 1:53 pm
Christina, I’m sure you’re lovely, but I beg to differ with the following phrase:
“they don’t want to hear, think, or talk about women’s icky stuff or girly parts.”
I think the majority of time men are thinking about “girly parts.” The “icky stuff,” I agree.
foolery saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:25 pm
Okay, for the two of you who check in here two days late like me: I don’t give a flying fart what the name is PERSONALLY, I just think Apple has either bungled sales because of an ill-chosen name, or they’re marketing geniusssssss who have created all kinds of buzz for themselves.
i still want one, she whispers
Mae Buzen saysMay 12, 2010 at 3:38 am
That’s hilarious! A lot of people having mocking Apple on this device of theirs. I have mine but I’ve only been playing puzzle games though. I’d like you to try out StarFaces. Certainly one of the best iPad app. I had played this game on my iphone for a while and now I have it for ipad and its great! Love the photos option
