iPad, what's in the name Apple?

The way the tech reporters are talking.  Apple has used a poor choice in it's naming of the iPad (pad).  If Apple would have talked to females (51 % of the population) they would have never used iPad for the tablet name. 

It seems that these teck guys are reporting that women only think of the use for  the word pad, only refers to "maxi pad".  Well then don't take a note on that pad of paper. Let's hope you never get transported to a hospital roofs helipad marked with a circle and a letter "H".  Now we know why NASA is on the chopping block for funds. It's the use of "launch pad" that did them in.

Apple used the name for branding. iPod iPhone iPad. It's a no brainer.

But the hidden fact just might be:

Think some suckers in the media will make reference to maxi pad.  I'm sure of it, remember that old SNL video on uTube.  Once the media gets wind of it, and the word pad in iPad, we'll get even more Free Press.

You tech reporters, just got used! Don't feel bad, you got it from the best in the business, Apple!
