    iPAD is the initial of 'Internet Personal Access Device'

    I coined the name iPAD a decade ago -- initial of 'Internet Personal Access Device'. The concept of the device is to do away with Windows, Office, Intel CPU, HDD, FDD, ...... It is solely used to access internet by individual who want to read news, get information, read and writte emails, communicate with friends, play games, access to coursewares, ......

    Well um...good luck seeking free money. Oh wait you can't, you never registered that name.

    *goes away to try and register "UMAD" (unintuitive money-hogging application developer)*

    Aww shoot. Apple already took that.
     
    Damn_Smooth and Mussels say thanks.

    Don't be so rude, btarunr, and don't be so sure. The rule of game is invented by our forefathers (of human race), who want to create level and fair ground for every human being on earth.

    I was the executive director of Proview -- the name that you might not want to hear now. Proview sold many tens of millions of monitors and TVs globally in the past decade under various names and OEM brand names -- the one that you use in might be made by Proview!

    Be happy, Go lucky!

    Oh, I didn't know you worked for Proview. I thought you were yet another "claimant". Nice to see you post here.

    And no, Proview is not unheard of here. I have come across Proview CRT monitors in the past. Just that they looked like clones of Compaq monitors (unless Proview was an upstream supplier for HP-Compaq).

    yeah LW, it might have been smarter to identify yourself first, so that we'd take your claim more seriously. good to see you posting here.

    I'm fairly certain ProView makes or made monitors for Gateway...as well as for HP Compaq
