“How Do I Insert a CD to the iPad 2?” [Humor]



I’m not sure whether this guy over on the Apple Support forums is genuine, or whether he’s set up this thread purely for fun, but either way it’s hilarious. Having recently purchased an iPad 2, ‘Michael K. W’ is seriously considering returning his device to the Apple store because he cannot get his CDs inside.

I’m trying to put a cd into the iPad 2 to play a track but the slot underneath the screen won’t allow me. What can I do?

One helpful user tries to help Michael troubleshoot his problem, while another simply tells him to keep trying, and then suggests:

Yes you should return it and buy a MacBook Air, cd’s fit better in them.

Without a fix for his problem, Michael asks whether it’s possible to get an external CD drive to accompany his iPad, and then demands, “Apple should really release a fix for this!”

That’s impossible. Apple made a device that can’t play CDs?

A number of users try explaining to Michael that the iPad doesn’t play CDs, while many more offer unhelpful but witty responses that only add to the hilarity.

If this is a genuine thread, I actually feel quite sorry for Michael, but I’m convinced he’s more of a comedy genius than a technological halfwit.
