The Onion Chooses The iPad As One Of The Most Influential People Of 2010
We easily could have written about Steve Jobs, the iconic CEO of Apple, and adequately described the iPad in that predictable context. But instead, we made the radically unorthodox decision to grant this product—a one-and-a-half-pound wafer of aluminum and glass, mind you—the same status accorded to members of the human race. You’ve already read through a number of stories constructed around people, but just when you expected to encounter another, we pulled the rug right out from under you.
This year, we are choosing a computer as one of the most influential people of 2010.
Anyway, not to brag, but we’re pretty fucking proud of ourselves.
Yes, you should be. At least you didn’t realize Mark Zuckerberg was worth a price in 2010.
