The New Yorker Makes Fun of iPad

The other day when we pointed you to this week’s New Yorker article about the iPad, we didn’t realize there was also a humorous sidebar, filed as a separate article online. The “Shouts & Murmurs” column, written this week by Billy Kimball, is entitled “Uncommon Complaints About the New iPad.”
