Doesn't matter. Besides, how do you know he's no longer there?

Paul Nelson,
<grin> no one can improve on a great name like "AS/400" or "iPad".

?hpt=hp_t2

Why doesn't the 'new iPad' have a name?  . . .
Question was on everyone's lips: So, what do we call this thing? . . .
The answer, according to an Apple spokesman: "It's just 'iPad.' It's
what it is." . . .
Or it is what it isn't. It's not the iPad 3, and it's not the iPad HD. .
.

The longer Apple execs talked about the tablet computer's new features
-- better screen, faster connection -- without actually giving it a
name, the more anxious the People of the Internet became. . .

"Come on Apple, name it already," one person wrote.
"Is it an Anonymous iPad?" asked another. . . Perhaps this naming
convention -- sticking with a singular product name without numbers or
the names of cats to follow it -- isn't entirely new for Apple. One
journalist pointed out that the iPod follows the same tack.
 . . . It probably would take more than a name snafu to change that.
