Future Shock  —  I'll have more to say on the iPad later but one can't help being struck by the volume and vehemence of apparently technologically sophisticated people inveighing against the iPad.  —  Some are trying to dismiss these ravings by comparing them to certain comments made after the launch of the iPod in 2001: “No wireless.
