Meet iPad LapDock, a Way To Turn Your iPad Into a Laptop. Huh?

At last, somebody’s thought of a way to get rid of iPad’s pesky hand-heldness and smaller-than-a-laptop size. We just heard about LapDock from PocketLint, and while we will be the first to say that typing on an iPad is hard as hell, we think this product is a bit silly–isn’t the whole point of an iPad to move us beyond this kind of keyboard-under-screen computing?

This product, which is in early beta, doesn’t quite reject the future, but it sure doesn’t embrace it. It kinda gives the future an awkward half-hug then walks into the other room.
