Default lol ipad

They are advertised EVERYWHERE, and given away as a prize in drawings.
I haven't seen anyone ever use one, as "trendy" as apple tries to make it.
Going to the university, you would think all those trendy motherfuckers would have it here and there, but
NOT ONE PERSON... no shit, has one!

Seeing as they sold over 300,000 of them on the first day and over three million of them in the first quarter of sales, I'm unsure of your point. The fact that you don't see them on your campus probably has something to do with the fact that they haven't been available during a holiday period yet and the typical college student can't afford one on their own.

I know a guy that has one, and he's gayer than a 3 dollar bill.

Apparently you're not familiar with that saying.

Or you got the saying wrong.

I am a poor ass college student. Vonage home phone, Walmart wardrobe, and 6 year old Dell laptop. Most of them are from rich families, obviously with their mac books, super high end cell phones, and aeropostale wardrobe (that makes FINE tight ass clothes for women). I think they could get one.

I still don't understand the point of your post, though. Are you saying the students at your college aren't as trendy as you presumed them to be? Or are you saying that the iPad must not be a trendy item after all and was purchased by people who actually have use for such a device?

hes just saying "heh. with all the hype, you'd think i would see at least 1." in hopes that his peers would also find that odd (I do :P). Instead of over-analyzing things to dea...oh that's right, Hi, Inverse...

The only iPad I have ever seen is in the hands of our music reporter who was basically handed one free to write a couple stories about it.

Given the fetish Chinese people have for buying Apple products to install something by Microsoft on them, I do find it shocking that they are not more prevalent given all the noise.

Granted most of my friends are in the local Linux User Group, there are still lots of non-zealots who drop by the meetings with various Apple gadgets. Still, not one iPad ...

I'm more interested in those badass tablet PCs by SHARP that have a full QWERTY keyboard and run on ARM. A guy I know who has one and uses Debian on it says he gets 16 hours of work time on one charge.
