He is not exactly at the "pipe and slippers" stage but not that far away. I can think of lots of reasons why the iPad will not work but I would love the job of positioning it to the older market. Somehow I doubt if older people were high up on the list of targeted sectors but Apple might be in for a shock.

I Am Not Dead Yet | Capital Gains and Games
you know the song "He Is Not Dead Yet."  It first appears early in Act I and it's hard to get out of your head once you hear it. It's also seems to be my personal theme these days as I sense I'm being increasingly ignored because I'm no longer in the target demographic.  Network and cable television don't appear to care that I still watch and want to be entertained.  Stores at the mall may want my business but they don't do much to get it.  Radio?  Let's not even go there. the fist in a series of posts on this subject...several notes to all CEOs, ... market research, surveys and trends

Madden NFL 11: Will Drew Brees Be the Next to Fall to Madden Curse?
The Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP has been a marketing magnet ever since he led New Orleans to a Super Bowl victory, but his latest appearance could derail his success. He chose to be on the cover of Madden 2011, subjecting himself to the possibility of falling to the dreaded "Madden Curse." Ever since Barry Sanders appeared on the Madden 2000 cover in 1999, bad times have usually befallen on the man on the front. All have tried to prove it wrong. Few have succeeded. John Madden even had the audacity to include two players on last season's cover, subjecting both to possibility of injury-filled and mediocre ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
