iPad 2 Thinner. Lighter. Faster. But does it have the right name?

iPad 2 Thinner. Lighter. Faster. FaceTime. Smart Covers. 10-hour battery.
iPad 2 Thinner. Lighter. Faster. But does it have the right name?

So, Apple CEO Steve Jobs launched the new iPad 2 today.

The difficult second tablet device.

Everyone is talking about it—apparently—the tech websites, the news websites, the tech news websites, everyone!

I think they missed a trick though in the name.


I think they should have called it the iPaad.

That way they could just keep adding ‘a’s (A for Apple) with each subsequent release until they has as many as Google have ‘o’s on their search results pages.


2019 would then undoubtedly usher in the new Apple iPaaaaaaaaaad.


The Lovely Jane™, however, thinks that they should have called it the iiPad (ii being the Roman numeral for 2).

With that naming convention, next year would bring the iiiPad. The ivPad would be launched in 2013. The vPad in 2014 and so on until in 2098 the new Apple dxxxviiiPad will explode onto the market.

It will be thinner than paper that is made from human hair. It will have 8 cameras, 12 TB of RAM, a 32-core 256-bit processor and every one will come with a complimentary copy of Angry Birds and a giant Zippo lighter app.

Whatever they called it though, I still won’t be buying one.
