OMG the iPad!

The iPad has arrived! It is producing manic depressive behavior like "It's the great new computing Paradigm!" vs "It's a Maxipad, (see the Mad TV parody of a Maxipad commercial", or "OMG I've got to get one, but it's got to be a 3G!" vs "It's only an overweight iPod Touch", or "Did you see they have a slot for a CAMERA?!", vs Apple stock plummeted the first couple days after the announcement" ... and on and on and on. Mashable.com is an excellent source of iPad news. One of the earliest and best article I've seen about the iPad says that the iPad category fits neatly between an iPhone and a Mac, being built to be a media consumption device, not a media creation device.
