.... and it is rechristened "iTampon" (in Off-topic)

wow, all you guys are serious folk, so many hours down the line and none of ye have said anything about the name "ipad" being so close to "feminine hygiene product". Meantime, the "iTampon" is the rage all over the net.

Perhaps, Apple could've saved itself a lot of red face if only they had Googled "iPad" and found out the MadTV spoof aired in 2006.

Wow, that is FUNNY!! And the creator was so excited about his new creation! ROFL I'll bet he feels pretty disappointed right now.

Terrible terrible name. I can't believe Apple's usually savvy branding team went and named it something like that. Love the skit though!

Thanks. You just ruined it for me. I didn't plan on buying one but I was totally gonna borrow one. Now I'd feel ridiculous asking if I can "play with your iPad"

I don't hear anybody being embarrassed at telling people they play with their Wii anymore...

Actually I think it was a smart way to get a Ton of free advertising. I have heard about this kind of thing happening before. The people make fun of or let others make fun of their products and they get a ton of air time for free because of it......Clever.
