Does The iPad Make You Less Masculine?
From a piece on The New York Times:
Call it the male iPad dilemma: too large to slip into a pants pocket, too stiff to be curled up like a magazine and too precious to leave unprotected. With its rigid tablet shape, Apple’s iPad has raised an awkward consideration for many men: how to carry it in a manner that is practical and yet, well, masculine.
Perhaps it's a cultural difference, but I didn't have any problems carrying my iPad inside a Tom Bihn Ristretto here in Italy. It's actually pretty cool.
