The Whole iPad Thing is Really Taking Off

We still think that they look ridiculous (and your editor still doesn't have one and isn't shopping), but people apparently love these iPad tablet thingies. Apple's currently selling them at a pace of about a million per month. That has left other computer makers racing to get tablets out the door -- Asustek and Micro-Star are talking about putting them out -- and Microsoft is wondering how on earth it's going to catch Apple in this market. Hey, Microsoft, how about Windows 7 tablets that work (almost) as well as iPads but are a lot cheaper and accessible for regular folks? Just a thought… And don't try to be cool this time. Just be functional. We don't need another Zune, thanks.
