The Apple iPad has become the bunt of many jokes.

A day after the official release of the new tablet, the blogosphere and television networks were full of funny name comparisons and cringe worthy analysis.

Do you think the iPad name sounds too similar to a feminine product? Does the name make you cringe? Do you think Apple should change it?
