Should TA tune down the iPad hype o meter?

It seems like the past week all the articles are all ipad related stories. This probably brings a lot of traffic, but it also irritates all the old TA visitors.

Lets be honest, people that own iphones and/or ipod touches are most likely not gonna spend half a grand on this fat pad.

Hopefully all this hype dies out in a week or so, or at least stop 'delaying' all the iphone/ipod touch app releases Apple =.=

I think some TouchArcade members should tune down the Whine-O-Meter.

This. Honestly does it bother you that much? Even though I'm not getting an ipad I still think it's interesting looking at all the titles for the ipad.

Going from some of their initial impressions (e.g. Geometry Wars) I think TA is just in a hurry to show everyone how much fun they're not having in order to get back to standard iDevice gaming as quickly as possible.

I for one could deal with ipad news for the next week if there is a 2 ipad to 1 itouch news stories. But, after a week or two it should be a one to one ratio.

So we can say 'shit' without getting an infraction?

Yeah I don't mind looking at the wonderful, HD graphics and the super high prices and knowing that I can't buy any of those...
