Apple iPad vs Blu-Tack – which is more useful?

iPad vs Blu-Tack

Which is more useful - iPad or Blu-Tack

I’m grateful to Halid Delkic, who sent me the above graphic earlier today. In fact, the above is incorrect – Blu-Tack will actually take a USB device. Indeed, it’s versatile enough to accept any connection.

Furthermore, Blu-Tack will work in most environments, won’t run out of power or crash just when it’s at its most useful, will fit any surface or space precisely, is compatible with PC, Mac or any other operating-system, is almost infinitely expandable, usable by young and old alike with no training, ultra lightweight and not cumbersome, won’t break and does not need to be turned off during take-off and landing. Although neither product will work underwater, Blu-Tack will work again when dry.

Oh, and for those who think the iPad is brilliant because the picture rotates to stay upright, let me just point out that it won’t work in zero-G. With Virgin Galaxy heralding in the age of space tourism later in 2010, Apple’s designers have at last shown themselves to be the has-been bunch of atavistic future-phobes that they really are.

    Hey! Rra mark,
    May not know much about Blu tac or ipad. See I am writing from the deep end of AFRICA! But I believe if one is able to find a woman who has multitasking capabilities, then for sure, she can sing many tunes whiles in the pad. Catch my melody?

    Efua, my sister, how delightful to hear from you. I see you have made post 1.0 and then post 2.0 because you just love to talk!

    I think I’d have been more impressed with a Blu Apple.

    Now how do I send this thing … ?

    Lest this become a completely one sided debate, for the record, blu tack can on occasions leave a nasty stain – but ounce for ounce it is a lot cheaper

    defo blu-tack all the way

    Sorry – blu tac does not have multi-task capability. It can only hold up one thing at once. It can do different things (like the ipad) but not at the same time. Therefore ipad has more ticks on the adjusted list so.. ipad for me please.

    Just googled the correct spelling of Blu-Tack and found this – I have to say that when I used it to attach a powerboard to my wall, it not only failed, but removed a chunk of paint when the board fell off. MacBook Pro all the way 🙂
