The WSJ: reporters, iPads, Grrrr!

Does this kind of thing drive you crazy? I know it does me. Half way through a news video about cable TV content streaming on iPads, one of the WSJ reporters admits (at 2:10 of the video) that she is totally in the dark about the subject because she doesn't own an iPad.

Then she says "most people at home probably don't have an iPad." Really? Apple has sold well over 30 million units so far. So it is a safe assumption that most people don't have an iPad at home?

Well, I guess when you look at the numbers a "majority" of homes are without an iPad. But will I ever really want to hear from this team of reporters again about tech? Probably not. Grrr.

In the meantime, the report from the WSJ's Sam Schechner is worth watching, nonetheless, if only to get a bit of background on the cable TV-networks-iPad issue.
