Where this occasional contrarian, freethinker and all around opinionated sob rumbles on about just about everything under the sun from the movies to art, culture, literature, politics, science, history, blogging, the web, web design, maybe even friends and family and current affairs. (And then some) And if you flatter me a bit, I may even claim to have all the answers.

Apple IPad is out

Ok, considering the hoopla and web buzz that has been building up to the release of this new Apple gadget, you would think this was the 'Second Coming of Christ'. Just to give you, the valued reader, an idea of the momentousness of this event, it seems to have, at least for the day, displaced the word 'Haiti' from the radio waves I listen to.

To stay with the religious metaphor; there is something almost pathetic about the knee jerk admiration of everything Apple so typical of the millions of Steve Jobs groupies worldwide. They remind me of the Moonies, the Jehovah Witnesses or the Hare Krishna's.
