I was in the Apple Store looking at the iPads (no, I did not buy one).
I started up the YouTube app and ran a video that I knew to be good
quality -- one of TankSpot's World of Warcraft raid videos. This one
was the ten man fire boss in Vault of Archaron. It looked great! And
this guy with his son comes over and they are watching this, and they
both say, "you mean it runs World of Warcraft? How did you do that?"
And I Iooked at them with a straight face, put my finger to my lips,
smiled, and disappeared into the crowd.

Next time I am going to take a pair of 3D glasses into the store and
watch a movie on the demo iPad. Not say anything, just let people jump
to their own conclusions.

I think anyone who buys one of these will soon get the joke.
These things are destined to become expensive paperweights.

Oh, ye short-sighted ones. I have no need for one in my life, but I'm
hoping they can kill off these horrible netbooks.

You might be surprised at how fast some of the newer netbooks are.
