iPad Aftermath


11:45 AM -- After the grand unveiling yesterday, critics are still divided on Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s iPad device.

While some frenzied fans have declared that the PC is dead, others are still finding things to dislike about the much-anticipated device, ranging from its touchscreen keyboard and lack of camera to its name, which is already being naughtily mocked by many across the Web.

Other emerging iPad news:

  • In its efforts to keep the device's name secret, Apple still hasn't gotten its Web act completely together. The Web address "iPad.com" still leads to an unrelated, cancer-oriented site.

  • Apple removed the logo of publishing company McGraw-Hill from yesterday's iPad presentation after that firm's president and CEO, Harold McGraw III, ran his mouth on CNBC the day before the unveiling. It's unclear whether McGraw-Hill will be dropped from the iPad or if this was just a slap on poor Harold's wrist.
