Wives Will Shoot Down iPad

 Hardware-01-20100127
Dads, this is serious. After a brief talk with my wife this evening it seems there is no chance an iPad is heading to the Thomas household. I thought it would be a nice, lightweight alternative to the better-half’s clunky Dell laptop for her chatting with friends in forums and for recipes in the kitchen.

We also have our iPhones out all night long after the kids are down for twitter, facebook and email of course. So it could help with eye strain. Seriously.

But when I mentioned it as a technological innovation to her she said, “what do I need it for? I have my laptop.”

Damn. Foiled. Again. A Twitter pal reiterated this same scenario played out in his household. So dads everywhere share your iPad spouse stories below.
