How did that happen? Before the iPad announcement, folks got on my case for saying I didn't want a tablet. After the announcement? Well, I still don't want this version of the iPad, but I think this is one of the most impressive pieces of technology we've seen from Apple.

Sarah Lacy of Techcrunch isn't so sure. When I defended the iPad's technology merits, she called me a fanboy. (I love mixing it up with Sarah. I especially enjoyed the part where we imagined Steve Jobs punching me in the face.)
