Apple's new tablet device has divided the internet into two camps since its release. The device is, on one hand, being hailed as the next revolution in mobile technology and, on the other, slandered as being nothing more than an over-sized iPod Touch.

Technology blogs are voicing strong opinions about the iPad, most of which are being echoed in the Twittersphere. As is to be expected on Twitter, the social network is also full of jokes about the name of the tablet, iPad.

Some of the iPad jokes being spread across the web include, "I made a promise to myself not to make a joke about the new Apple ipad....period" and "The iPad sounds like a robotic tampon."
