What is Apple going to name its tablet computer? iSlate? iPad? Slate? iBook? MacBook touch? iPod touch HD?
Why? Because the invitation Apple sent to reporters — splashed with paint blotches — looks like it could be the canvas for a kid’s preschool art project.
Gruber writes today, “Even without considering the invitation design, I love this name. It looks good, it sounds good, and it evokes the right feelings and ideas: thin, light, clean, crisp, blank, the thing great artwork is made upon. It’s a perfect name.”
