Joe Wilcox knocks iPad

When I scrolled through the iGoogle RSS headlines, I came across “Be smart, don’t buy into the iPad hype.”  I knew even before I clicked on it that it would be a Wilcox story.  Key quotes:

  • The Mac-obsessed blogosphere, news media and social crowd is a frightening but  exhilarating phenomenon. (Duh.)

  • Apple loves to use sales numbers for marketing advantage. (Why not?)

  • Apple hype is simply out of control. (Your point being…?)

  • Were you wowed by the iPad’s aspirational marketing or Steve Jobs’ product introduction? (The intro. Nothing else matters.)
