Do you think the stigma attached to the iPad will result in loss of sales from the male population?

That's what I am wondering.

Like, because it's Apple? What?

more description in your questions please...I too am confused about the stigma. Like because it's just a big iPod touch?

I never thought about feminine hygeine products until this question, so I don't think the stigma is that widespread

I'd seen the MadTV sketch before, but I wasn't aware that there was a similar stigma about the product...

I had thought about it like that, but I wasn't going to buy it anyway. If I were planning on buying it, that certainly wouldn't stop me.

I never even made the connection until just now. If product name misinterpretation is such a big deal, why do so many people buy Hummers?

i dont care about stigma when i buy anything. But i'm not buying any new crap until they make the old crap function half-way.

I guess I wasn't immature enough to get the joke immediately. No, I don't think any Apple product could have a problem selling because of something so trifling and insignificant. Men enjoy gadgets and will continue to buy them regardless.

I think in their case it helps..."Yeah, I'll take one...wait, what the hell do I need keys for?"

I have seen the comericals, and never once thought of it that way. And I know a guy who is buying one.
