The iPad launches on Saturday. I expect to see the first one in the wild by lunchtime at the latest.
ThinkGeek has a good April Fools joke related to the iPad–the iCade “desktop arcade” peripheral.
Yeah, it’s a joke, but you know what? I’d totally buy one. (If I had an iPad, that is, which I don’t. And won’t, at least until iPad 2.0 comes out, which will be twice the memory, 50% longer battery life, and a 20% smaller price tag.)
As far as April Fools jokes go, that one’s pretty elaborate. The mock-up looks real, and the whole thing is just plausible enough to not be totally obvious.
And now I think I need to stop blogging about gadgets for a while, as I have exhausted my monthly thematic allotment regarding shiny computing devices.
