Of Note: To great fanfare this week, Apple introduced the iPad, a tablet computer meant to change how people read and communicate. Listening to the hoopla, one might assume this large-screened flat laptop is something new. Not so. Tablet-type computers have been introduced and subsequently failed several times since the 1970's. Apple does not know if the time has come for their innovation but are counting on a different outcome this time around. The opposition is already lining up. Apparently, the iPad name graces a device manufactured in Japan used to count inventory, and a lawsuit might be imminent. Others are joking about the name which suggests a feminine-hygiene product. Said the Winnipeg Free Press: "The iPad is a Really Bad Name. Period." Most bet that Apple iPad will join its sister the iPhone in succeeding where others have failed. Stay tuned.Today's Weather Report: Sunny and cold. That's it. As Mr. Rogers sang, "Just another day in the neighborhood."
