    iPad Death Watch...

    From Forbes

    "Behold the Apple iFlop" was TheStreet's headline. Bill Gates declared it not quite there yet. Paul Thurrott called it "a high priced, unnecessary trinket." Dan Lyons was let down. Eric Schmidt couldn't see the difference between a tablet and a large phone. John Dvorak couldn't see anyone under 30 ever wanting one.

    And those were some of the nicer things the early critics had to say about Apple's (AAPL) iPad, which launched three years ago today.
