If you were using and loving your iPad before today’s news, you can and should continue to do so. It is still very much the magical and revolutionary device it was when you woke up this morning. You know, when you launched the iPod app, fired up the latest podcast, swiped through Engadget, while you sipped free-trade coffee, and pondered what a blessed and wonderful life you had. A life filled with things you could only dream about as a kid and still foreign to 95% of the world’s population. A life free from the guilt your mother tried to instill when she told you to eat your vegetables because of the starving children and you should be grateful to have any food at all. Instead, you get to enjoy this still magical device and just tuck away in hidden places: the possibility that those vegetable starved kids likely grew up to work in the factory that made said magic for you.
