The iPad is too heavy
It has been pointed out by several 'leading' journlists that a significant problem with the recently released iPad is excessive weight.
"Do they expect you to read with this for any amount of time?" she asked. "I wouldn't." She also noted that since it's uncomfortable to hold the iPad at a regular reading distance, her reading glasses were ineffectual..."
I mean NO ONE would bother to hold something that heavy for any length of time, say, ooohh such as... books:
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 806g
- Tim Winton's Dirt Music - 740g
- The Irvin Welsh Omnibus - 818g
- The Ultimate CSS Reference - 832g
I would have weighed a bible - I am sure that would top the lot, but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your particular outlook) the closest thing I could find was Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion - which was a relative lightweight at 550g.
