Love has been portrayed as the ultimate human experience… the experience no one should ever miss during their time spent on Earth. With love, one is destined to have their ego expanded and extended, thus achieving their maximum potential. Well, maybe, anyway. This may be the view of romantic poets like Shakespeare and Chaucer, but the modern man?s inner sensibilities may not be touched by warm stories anymore.
A recent survey bluntly suggests some men would choose technology over women any day, every day. And in this case we?re referring strictly to Apple?s iPad. You might stop me here and tell me that, yes, the new tablet is indeed something magical. It does come packed with a smooth and shiny 9.7 inch screen, doubled by a rich 2048 x 1536 Retina display that has been known to drive a decent amount of people almost crazy.
Although, you might find the story of men giving up women for an iPad quite funny at first, take a few seconds to consider the consequences. First you had people, closing the door to the world and playing video games nonstop, now it?s men who are more interested in the iPad than in women. The future looks bleak.
The research was posted by RoxyPalace.com and showcased that 11% of the men involved in the poll, who were incidentally single men, would prefer to have the iPad as a partner for the night, instead of a real live woman.
Women as expected weren?t too crazy about the whole iPad idea. 96% of the females questioned said that they would rather go on a date than enjoy some iPad quality time.
At least there is some hope for humanity…

The New York Times? Bits tech blog has a feature today on the forthcoming iPad 3 in which it says that it has heard from an Apple employee that the new iPad is ?essentially the same size and shape as the iPad 2,? but that it has a much improved and ?truly amazing? screen. The anonymous source also said that the next iPad will have a faster processor. This is nothing we haven?t heard before of course, but it?s interesting to hear from what could be considered an official source. One thing we haven?t heard too much about, however, but which the Times piece touches on, is what the new iPad will be called, saying that it is ?unclear? whether or not the new iPad will be called iPad 3, citing the example of the iPhone 4S, which most predicted would be called the iPhone 5 before it was announced.
