It was inevitable, talking about the iPad. I can't promise any jokes, of course, or bad ones at that. But with the release of Apple's new product, it seems that everybody's either fallen for it with hearts in their eyes or are completely unable to process what's going on.

Of course, it's shiny. It's really shiny. There are lots of pretty buttons. There is the fact that it doesn't weight two hundred pounds, when carrying it around the city, as a laptop. There is the allure of the millions and millions of random, sometimes unnecessary apps that you're only destined to fall for. The catchy commercials. The tunes - it goes on.

And while all this is great, there are things like price. Of course, too, there is by the time you go through all the pros and cons, there's going to be a second and third generation iPads waiting for you to go and look at. There's the competition. HP is prepping to release it's would-be iPad killer and if you, like the rest of us, are big fans of this season's Project Runway, you know that HP's stuff is just as shiny too.

So what do you? Do you go and spend the money and regret it later like a bad date and a few scoops of ice cream too much? Personal choice is personal choice, but I do think I'll be waiting to see what's coming next.
