STILL Need More Reasons Not To Buy an iPad?

Hey, did you catch the latest episode of Modern Family, that totally hip sitcom that rocks? No? Yeah, me neither. And now, I probably never will.

Rule of thumb is that sitcoms tend to blow chimps by the herd, and last night the ABC turd made a legendary example of itself by becoming a 30-minute shameless commercial for the iPad.

I don’t even know what to say about this. I’m a big fan of well-designed advertisements, but this is embarrassing and uncomfortable, even to watch alone. It fails as both an advertisement and entertainment.

“Who’s ready for the first day of the rest of their lives?” Seriously?

Even as a fan of the iPad AND Modern Family, I thought this was despicable.
