" IPad therefore I am "


Tweet from @PeterMartin1 . 2010 Twitter

If you had not already noticed it is spreading like bird flu. Yes that is right bird flu. If you don't know what bird flu was or is ask someone from Hong Kong or Singapore of Thailand. This one is really lethal. Yes that's right lethal. Just ask your neared bank manager Apple store accountant or read about it on the Internet. Twitter followers have been hit the hardest. All the twitter followers that have been on line have picked it up, That's right they are all infected with the new IPad virus. It's serious stuff that is sending people delirious. Worse if it affects you you are likely to lapse into delusions of grandeur ang go and cure through the wee small hours until you are able to pick one of these critters up. That's right the new IPad.

IPad therefore I am

Twitters most affected

Followers of that prolific and current craze twitter have been the most severed affected by the IPad virus. Why for more than a week now the number one twitter subject worldwide has been the IPad .

 

Star Trek or Trekkers might note that the pad from the original series  in the 1970's the tablet they used was referred to as a pad.  Question Did the Pad come from Star Trek or Not  someone ask Steve Jobs ?

      barry, I got in early and had my inoculation :-) I certainly will not be buying an ipad any time soon. Too much hype for me . I believe we will get it here in Australia this week sometime?
