Don't Put Your iPad Onto a Custom Pillow Because It Makes No Sense at All

Illustration for article titled Dont Put Your iPad Onto a Custom Pillow Because It Makes No Sense at All

Tablets are great, and clutching them is a big heaping part of the fun! But you need a case, because you don't want your baby slate to crack or scuff or shatter. Put slipping it in a pillow is idiotic.

Under what circumstances would this make sense? Are your knees made out of some crumbly bone paste that can't support an iPad? Are you a cat? Are you a baby? Are you bedridden? Do you like to watch YouTube vids by pressing your face directly against the screen? Are you attending one of Kate Middleton's aristocratic pillow fights? Are you an idiot?

Couldn't you just put your iPad onto a... regular pillow? Is the slight depression in the ePillow what's going to make all the difference for you? Can't you just put the iPad on your crotch like a normal person? Or a table? Or your knees?

Are you allowed to put non-iPad tablets onto the ePillow? Can you just use the ePillow for sleeping, even if you don't own any tablet at all? Why does this exist? Why? Who is responsible for this? Why couldn't they have just tried a little harder? Why? Goodnight to all. [ePillow]

I like angry, ranting reviews. I like it when somebody actually tears a product to shreds because it's stupid. Here's the thing though: reviews tearing down a product that are written when the reviewer hasn't even touched the product generally come across as kind of half-hearted. Like this one.

This stupid pillow-thing? Yeah, it looks pretty dumb. No, I won't be buying one. But I don't think it's too much of a stretch to imagine people buying it for their kids, for reading in bed, or for whatever other purpose they might have for it. And if Sam had used one and found its construction shoddy, its stuffing lumpy, its screen cover unusable, or some other issue with the physical device and included that in this tirade, I may have enjoyed it. As it is, it just seems kind of like filler.

Again, I like vitriolic rants against shitty products. I'd love to see more of them. Just please, get a tester unit before you write them, and—if all else fails—bring Joel back to write them. (No offense, Sam.)
