I'm not sure if you guys have read this or not, but I found it interesting. The whole concept of the "iPad" originated as an April Fool's Joke. See the following post at Google Groups: http://firstname.lastname@example.org Note the date: 4/1/00. Not only has the rumored iPod always been a fake, but a two-year-old one at that. Now it seems the "iPad" has evolved into more of a generic name us hopefuls use for Apple's rumored non-existant PDA. Well eye, there's one fake Apple PDA name you can cross off your hate list.
