The iPad that simply didn’t make the cut

Apple doesn’t seem overly concerned about Motorola’s idiotic Xoom ads making fun of their tablet, but apparently they don’t extend the same courtesy to everyone. Dean Kaplan, a guy who’s had a bit of success with iPad/iPhone stensils and sketchbooks (neither are apps, btw) went on to create a wooden iPad shaped cutting board. Maybe Apple was afraid that people would think the iPad is a cutting board (like that Chinese tablet), because they sent their lawyers on the poor guy, citing it was too much like the iPad. Seriously, Apple? You’re sending lawyers after a guy making wooden iPad cutting borads? Are you really that bored? Weak, Apple, very weak. God help us all when they discover Etsy.
