Whatever iTunes named it.

Naming a MACHINE??? please.......

Right because who would name a machine like Spirit of St. Louis or Friendship Seven or Titanic?

Not the same thing at all. They are ships that REQUIRE a name. These are just computers.
Stevie Ray Vaughn named a guitar "First Wife", another was "Lenny."

Various cultures name swords of great warriors.

I don't mind if you are in denial, but people have named tools and machines for Centuries.

"Paddan"

I'm actually considering "Paddan". It may occur odd, but padda [ˈpada] is the Swedish word for toad, and in Sweden it's quite common to refer to one's iPad by min padda ("my toad") or paddan ("the toad"). :D

In my novel His Robot Girlfriend set in the year 2032, people use devices called TexTees. The iPad is probably more advanced than the device I describe in the book, since I wrote it several years ago, I was thinking along the lines of the Kindle. Still, I call mine my TexTee.

OMG I loved your book, it got me daydreaming beyond belief!

I don't recall where I found it, perhaps here on the Forums, but I'm sure glad I did. What an original story and I loved the Textee's in the book. I remember reading that story back when the iPad was first shipping and thinking how awesome the things would be that my iPad would be used for.

I can say I surpassed those ideas and still going strong. I'm finding new things almost daily to make the iPad a part of almost every hour of every day. Without going back and re-reading certain chapters, I would say the iPad was being described in your book, before the iPad was available too!

One thing I kept thinking all throughout the book, "This is most definately our future and I want one too!" My wife might get angry but maybe she could start out as our maid. :):D
