I love listening to and reading what smart people have to say. Andy Ihnatko is smart and as much of an Apple fan-boy as I am, but he’s also much more likely to call them out for things that aren’t the way they should be. In short, I trust his opinion (even though he is a fan-boy) and wanted to post a link to his first review of the new iPad. I am waiting for a 3G version but I’ve played with a WiFi iPad and can’t want to get mine and customize it. Here is Andy’s summary of why this new device is something entirely new and a game changer.

The Deuce. It’s a bold stroke designed to get attention and it just might. After all, how often do TV stations brand themselves using the nickname for a very large bowel movement? I can’t remember too many. If the name “The Deuce” works for KWGN, other stations around the country just might flock to other bodily fluids and/or functions. What a load of …. well, the name says it all.
Here is an actual description for a 2003 film called High Tension. It’s rare you see this level of lame pun/spoiler in a description, but even more rare that you get an immediate apology. Reminds me of the voice-overs we used to write at TV stations, and sometimes the interns would write themselves into the copy.
A great spot from the BBC showing how they never miss anything exciting and now thanks to their internet player, you don’t have to either. It’s well done and it happens to have Monty Python’s Terry Jones in it, which is a nice bonus.
It seems the new Grand Theft Auto is a little tamer than previous versions. Nice!
