Apple iPad – Siren to the Apple Fanboy
When the first Apple iPhone was released, there were more than 200,000 early-adopters who purchased the now iconic ‘phone’; however, after a few months, Apple reduced the price of the iPhone by by $200, leaving the early-adopters looking mighty stupid. But any animal learns from experience, and humans being the most intelligent in the animal kingdom learn much more quickly. So it was a shock that the first-day sales of the iPad, the new gadget from Apple, sold over 300,000 units.
The Sarcasmist would like to believe that these two groups (early iPhone and iPad buyers) have no overlap. It’s really not possible that there are 100,000 more idiots than there were just three years ago. Nature is supposed to get rid of those idiots through natural selection, isn’t it?
