Lets take a look at some of the wisdom injected into Mr. Thurrott’s impressions:
“The power plug is the bigger, uglier old-style plug, not the new small, square one you get with iPhone.
It’s because the iPad draws more charge. For that 10+ hour battery. Dickhead.
The box it comes in is oddly thick, given Apple’s penchant for thinness. Most of the box is just air, and that part is below the device. Weird.”
It’s the exact same thin: air ratio as the iPhone 3GS packaging. Dickhead.
Fucking gems, Paul. If you read the bottle, it’ll tell you not to try and double up the dose you missed.
After the devastating critique of Apple’s power brick heft and packaging weirdness, he concludes that “Anyone who believes this thing is a game changer is a tool. I’m sorry, but that’s just the way it is.”
Don’t apologize, Paul. To people who know tech, your first impression is pretty much the same as the 2nd, 3rd, 56th and last impression people have of you. In the pantheon of “people who get paid to write shit about tech”, you’re a caricacture – on a good day. You’re a shill for fail. At least you could be like Lyons and throw a laugh in once in a while.
