    Hey why didnt women get into a panty-twist party over Windows NotePad or Word Pad? Grab a Scratch-Pad and let's brainstorm. Pad and tablet sorta go together also.
    I think it is a two-fold reason. First of all, the name of the product is simply Pad with there trademark i in front of it, as opposed to a descriptive word (though, come to think of it a scratch-pad does sound quite unpleasant). Second of all, there were jokes about an iPad starting as soon as the iPod came out... It is not really wise to name a product after a joke, as it gives good reason to bring back the jokes...

    The moniker comes uncomfortably close to those cheesy commercials touting the light 'n breezy features of feminine hygiene products.

    Are there too many men in Apple's marketing department?

    That's what droves of women on Twitter and other social sites are wondering as they consider the name of Steve Jobs' new lust object, the iPad. The moniker comes uncomfortably close to those cheesy commercials touting the light 'n breezy features of feminine hygiene products.

    The mocking goes along the lines of: Yes, the iPad is small, lightweight and slim. But can you swim with it?

    Don't take our word for it. Just take a look at Twitter, Tumblr or any number of other social blabbing sites and search #iTampon. It's outpacing #iPad itself as one of the most popular topics.

    I'd forgotten about that skit. But on the same note, they (2 women) were even talking about the poor name choice on NPR today.
