I'd like the other big O to give up the iPad and be seen using the PB too. Can you imagine the PR with the Prez using the PB while bridged to his BB?

In all seriousness, I can't stand how society places some person in a position of esteem when she literally talks out her ***.
People turn to her for marriage advice... yet she's never been married.
People turn to her for advice on raising kids.... yet she's got none of those.
And quit extolling the virtues of being skinny and then keep getting fat over and over and over and over and over again.

My guess is no effect whatsoever.. I don't think people give a rat's **** about Oprah anymore, let alone those who might be interested in buying the playbook. In fact, I just tried to think of anyone who might be able to sway public opinion, & I couldn't think of a single person who's endorsement might help.

Obama is great... and everyone just steps in line.. in Oprah lock step
This time I'm hoping the trend continues for Playbook.. until she changes her mind... that could be catastrophic
It's politics 101 - give away free stuff and you become king/queen of the world with a loyal following. It works for Democrats every time.

"On the other side of the spectrum, word on the Street is that Oprah proclaimed she prefers her PlayBook over the iPad and is having her staff switch over. The announcement was made on OWN early Wednesday, according to sources"
It sounds more like hearsay to me. You Google "Oprah and iPad", and you come up with pages of "Oprah Says The iPad Is Her All-Time Favorite Thing" I've googled this and the only thing I can find is this exact article on a blog, and the reference to it in this thread.
I'd be interested to see how this develops in the next few days. I'll have to keep an eye on her Tweets. If Oprah actually does jump ship, it could be a colossal big deal!Curve 8310 > iPhone 3g > Bold 9700 >Torch 9800 (work) iPhone 6 (play)

I will say though, that I've been hoping to meet someone for years who shares my interest in this stuff, but so far all of the women I've dated have only tolerated my tech interests. I know you're out there somewhere, but none so far in my 'real life'.
Kudos to Ellen btw!"Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion." ~Democritus
