If I know anything about women and pads, this thing will hold hella blue liquid.

Then again, commercials lie. I don't know many people with herpes who are into rock climbing.

It addresses a niche market that actually exists and is underserved/unexploited by tablet makers:  brainless Barbies. Naturally, the marketing copy does not tell the niche that they're an insignificant minority.  It tells them that they are "today's women."

If people would just read the ads that are intended for them, there would be less butthurt in the world.

It comes downloaded with cooking apps? That's a little presumptuous.

/My Galaxy Note tablet is just fine for me.

Oh man, did you see that kitchen only tablet someone was putting out?

Waterproof, loaded with cookbooks, and it even had little legs so if you spilled anything the liquid would go under the machine just in case.

Booooing.

I don't know what the ads will be, but I do know that they will contain endless stock photos of women laughing like lunatics over nothing.

You know what brought Apple back from oblivion back in the 90s?

The imac.

You know what was so great about it that it brought Apple back from oblivion?

It came in different colors. Especially pink and purple.

Never under-estimated the power of appealing to target markets.

If they're truly trying to market a tablet for today's modern female it better come pre-loaded with lots of YAOI and slash fan-fiction staring Legolas and that sparkly guy from Twilight.

God help them if the icon for one app is shinery than any others.
Cause that's the only one they'll see and use.

Is it designed to work well with long fingernails, like the Pettcoat 5?

I can see the one star reviews already. One star didn't soak up anything at all. Was really hard to hold between my legs, don't buy.

Look the day they figure out how to make it a useful attachment for a Hitachi Magic Wand is the day women will show an interest.

We dont care what color it is as long as it vibrates.

What's the term for when you try to make believe something is normal and that they're insane if they don't agree? It's on the tip of my tongue...

Cock?

Anyway, on the topic - I'm pretty sure it's just as patronizing to tell women they should feel patronized by this. I think women can make their own choices - if companies want to market to women by using pink, so what?

It comes preloaded with apps that women need like:
- recipes and shopping list trackers for cooking for your man
- yoga, fitness, a weight tracker, and a clothing size converter so you can look good for your man
- perfume shopping so you can smell good for your man
- a journal so you can write about how farking bored you are without books, videos, games, or even email or a web browser.

On the off chance that not everyone RTFA it should be noted that this particular femme-friendly, not-so-tech-savvy appealing device are being marketed in the Middle East and not doing very well at that with only 7,000 of these puppies getting sold.

Hell, I'm just happy that the ladies are not being denied internet access because it makes Allah haz a sad or somesuch.

Why don't they ever have ads for when you poop too much? (Aside from straight up diarrhea ads for pepto)

I want the magic food that *reduces* pooping.

I'm waiting for the new 2.0 features, such as

1-tap link to Pinterest

Preset Netflix/Lovefilm app with both romantic comedies and Sex and the City available as options

Bookshop divided into the three majot book genres:
-books with pink covers, the title made to look like it is written in lipstick and a line drawing of a martini glass
- the same pink book with lipstick title and a line drawing of a cupcake
- the same pink book with lipstick title and a line drawing of a stiletto heel.

Handbag shop
Puppy shop
Puppy in handbag shop

Auto stopwatch to time exactly how long since he last called or texted for you

A carefully hidden optional link to the standard Android interface and settings labelled "Stupid Man World"

Oh FFS!! That is just offensive to me. I hate pink, I don't need help making OR having babies and I'm not a farking idiot.
