“Dad, how do you like that iPad we bought you?”

You don’t need to know German to enjoy this. All you need to know going into it is:

“Dad, how do you like that iPad we bought you?”


I promise you, if one of you sends me the new iPad, I’ll take good care of it!

    Uh huh… just as he did? He did wash it as soon as he finished, after all. ;)

    I’m sure he uses the screen protector film.

    Perhaps, he has his eye on the newer better version and is experimenting with applications once this one is obsolete?

    No, it non-removable battery no longer holds a charge so he had $700 cutting board now. They had the same thing when iPods came out and quit holding their charge and were converted into $500 paper weights.

    What I find interesting – not being an apple hater, but being a rather cold apple agnostic – is the number of videos entitled “iPad Zerstoren” or “Does it Blend”.

    Seems to me that there are a great number of individuals out there with a psychic need to brutalize iDevices. Perhaps if Freud were still with us he could say “What do these geeks want? What do they want?!”

    Um what is the canonical sentence for abusing sacred items ?

    APX – Bah. I have a first generation iPad. In fact I’m writing this comment with it. I use it every day. Have since I received it. I still get seven or eight hours of use out of a charge, easy. And $500 for an iPod? Really?
