How they came up with the iPad

It’s innovation… Mushroom Kingdom style! Maybe Steve Jobs was playing a little Super Mario the other day?

    Just as in the past: telephone+blue shroom=cellphone.

    Hmm…if i'm the first to post, then i'm also the last during that time. If first is last, then that means I'm first and last as well as being first and last. o_0

    So the people from Apple finally found the pipe to the Mushroom Kingdom.

    The question is, who ate the mushroom, the iPhone or Steve Jobs?

    Sup Dawg, We heard you like iPhones so we took out the phone part and made everything bigger.

    Does that mean the Nano was born by the iPod Video getting a Poison Mushroom?

    Ah, Apple. "Innovating" technology for many years now.

    At least Steve Jobs hasn't found the star…

    *throws Star at Google*

    If you use a life mushroom it explodes and turns into a book
    How interesting

    two Ipods, one up?

  14. Darkangelsv1 on February 5th, 2010 5:56 pm

    Makes sense to me. Jobs must've been high on that thing.

    The iPad, of course. Not the mushroom. He must've had HIGH regards about it.

    So if we throw a turtle at iPad, we will get a iPod? I’m going to test that.

    Next you're gonna see Nintendo using a Mushroom on the DSi….


  18. DClaw on February 5th, 2010 8:39 pm

    Well…At least this gives some vague infomation on how the iPod Nano was born…Hey wait a minute! Where did Apple get the mushrooms for this!?

  19. Mako_Tsunami on February 5th, 2010 8:52 pm

    Hopefully I don't accidentally harpoon this like I did with my iPhone.

    Side effects may include: Inflated ego, useless features, tacked on features, being the "in" thing, breaking someone's bank and/or balls, rushed production, and a sense that something important is missing from your life.

  21. FrEEz on February 5th, 2010 9:22 pm

    If you drop it does it shrink back to an iphone?

  22. MasterLuigi452 on February 5th, 2010 11:39 pm

    Can this be true??
    Apples is working with Nintendo??

  23. SacroSankt on February 6th, 2010 4:06 am

    Possibly. Personally I'd have gone with dignity, or touch tablet.


  24. akis on February 6th, 2010 11:00 pm

    all they need to do is combine a Mac with a >Blue turtle shell< and who knows, maybe they'll take away Microsoft's lead in the market lolz
