Apple iPad following our trend

- Posted in Company News, Competitons, Extended Portfolio, Marketing related, Polystyrene Uses by Fran

The Ipad known as the Ifad

The iFad the gadget that everybody will want.

It has arrived.

The Apple iPad, no, that’s old news now. The media hype surrounding its launch has been disappointing, with many journalists and industry experts commenting that there is nothing really innovative about the device, and that it is just a super-sized version of the iPhone.

Well, we do have something new and innovative, that is set to shake up the industry: The iFad.
We have already created a super-sized iFoam, so we continued to develop the device and are now launching the iFad.
Our giant polystyrene hand-held device shares many of the features available on the iPad: it is lightweight, it makes a big impact no matter where it goes, and it is a great conversation piece. It has many commercial applications that we cannot reveal at this time, except to say that the audio/visual and marketing industries are very excited by the iFad launch.

We are glad to see the design gurus in Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California have followed our lead and broken the computer industry trend of┬áminiaturisation. They must have seen the benefit of our ethos: “if you’re going to make it, make it big”.

Our research and development department is trying to keep pace with the new apps that we have planned for the iFad. We would welcome any suggestions that you may have, so please leave a comment and our R&D team will evaluate it.
However, if you would like to get hold of this mobile device, please sign up to our newsletter and be in with a chance to win this iFad on Friday April 16 2010.

We would like to thank all the people who signed up to our newsletter and to those who entered the iFad comp. We intend to offer a prize with each newsletter so do continue to sign up.
In case you were wondering, the question we asked in the competition was:
What is the height of the iFad? The answer was 996mm (39┬╝”)

    Yes I think Steve Jobs is out of a job. I will henceforth call him Steve Jobsgone. Please rush me two dozen iFads at once to arrive before the craze has moved on to the iPud. If I am not satisfied with my iFads I understand that I can shag off out to sea. On my iFads.

    Hi Nick,
    Thanks for your comment.
    I don’t think Steve Jobsgone is redundant yet, not until you start ordering quantities over 10,000.
    I’m sure you will be more than satisfied with your iFads, but if you do want to ‘shag off out to sea’ you will be pleased to know that you will be able to make a raft.
    One of the many properties of this device is that it floats, unlike the it the iPad. This goes to prove that the iFad is a truly multifunction device suitable for many varied applications. Before you register the name iFloat, I have already taken care of that to join the iF family. iFoam, iFad and now the iFloat.

    Fran, before I splash out on an ifad can I ask you something? If I drop it down the toilet bowl, will it still work afterwards?

    Thanks for the comment. But I’m a little perplexed wondering what size of a toilet you have.
    The iFad is quite a sizeable piece of kit to be dropping it down a toilet, but if you do find a toilet that you could drop it into I can guarantee that it will have no ill effect.
    In fact I would be very surprised if you could flush it away.
    As a result of Nick’s comments we are testing the iFad out and may soon release the iFloat.

    Thanks aafke.
    That sounds like a good idea and a nice one to add to the iF family.
    iFoam, iFad, iFloat and the iFry / ifries

    Yes I also thinks that Steve Jobs is out of a job. I likes iFads.
