Apple iPad

De Apple iPad is eindelijk hier, na maandenlang wachten en geruchten. Voor de vele fanboys is dit een hoogdag. Maar niet iedereen is even tevreden met het resultaat, zoals blijkt uit onderstaande video.

Hitler responds to the iPad

Hans Krebs (Rolf Kanies): “We expect the iPad will be very popular. It will probably be sold out at Best Buy’s here and here, though we may be able to find it at these other locations.”

Adolf Hitler (Bruno Ganz): “That’s fine, I’ll just order it online.”

Krebs: “My Führer. The iPad…”

Alfred Jodl (Christian Redl): “The iPad won’t support multitasking. It will only be able to run one app at a time.”

Hitler: “Anyone who wasn’t planning on buying the iPad, please leave. […] What the fuck! Is this a joke? Fuck! Who do they think they are? What the hell is it then? They didn’t give it a camera, fine. But it’s on AT&T! How am I supposed to use their crappy network? They could have revolutionized the market! It could have been amazing!”

Wilhelm Burgdorf (Justus von Dohnanyi): “My Führer, it can run iPhone apps.”

Hitler: “iPhone Apps? I wanted a computer! I wanted OSX!”

Burgdorf: “My Führer, it’s also an eBook reader.”

Hitler: “eBooks? If I wanted eBooks I’d buy a Kindle. This is bullshit! It had all the potential in the world. It could have changed the market. It could have single handedly destroyed netbooks. But what do we get instead? An oversized iPod Touch! The only thing it can do that my iPhone can’t is to have split screens. It can’t even make phone calls! There were so many rumors! Stupid iPad! I’ve spent so much time, wishing, dreaming! That Apple would come out with the perfect tablet. Shit! It sounds like a fucking tampon! There is nothing manly about it at all! I wanted to watch videos of lolcats while laying on the couch. But no. They won’t even give it flash support. They’re still not giving us the full web like they promised with the iPhone. How am I supposed to play Bloons?”

Traudl Junge (Alexandra Maria Lara): “Don’t worry, you can play on my netbook.”

Hitler: “This is the first time in a long time that Apple has disappointed me so much. So sad. No one better gift it to me. I might as well wait for the HP slate now. They’ll probably actually get it right. I’ve lost all my faith in Apple. Leave me.”

  1. The Hitler video is funny, but it just confirms that the PC pundits are misguided in their technology thinking. It’s like PC dweebs want to spend their money on one portable device that costs less that $500 and have it do everything.

    Go ahead buy your 10 pound Dell tablet that blue screens every 20 minutes.

    1. To be perfectly honest with you, from what my personal experience tells me I’ve only been presented with a BSOD about once a year. The Asus netbook I’m typing this on right now cost me €300, runs Windows XP and hasn’t died on me once. It’s cheaper, faster, more energy efficient, types faster with a real keyword, it has a camera, my browser does flash, can hold 160 GB, and has everything else the iPad is supposed to have.

      I’m not your standard Windows-loving noob. This was an educated choice. But feel free to spend double the price on an oversized iPod Touch.
