WATCH: Not Everyone Has The iPad Spirit

Posted: Updated:

Judging from the hype that preceded its arrival -- the cover of Time magazine! and Newsweek! endless chatter from media folks looking for a Messiah to technophiles anxious to get their hands on the latest gadget -- you'd think everyone was clamoring for an iPad.

Well, not quite. On Sunday -- a full day after the iPad landed in stores, and before news outlets reported that more than 300,000 iPads were sold -- we spent a couple of hours in Union Square in New York City, where, within a three mile radius, three Apple stores are located. Inevitably, we found some people, a few of them loyal Apple fans, who were not quite sold on the iPad.
