The iPad is a total babe magnet, writer Jim Colgan has discovered.

Colgan took his new iPad on the streets of New York and got so much attention, he says it’s better than borrowing a puppy to talk to girls.

“If you’re looking for a dating aid, leave your friend’s dog alone and borrow an iPad,” he says.

Taking the iPad to a bar, “two women emerged from behind him and screamed and pointed. They all wanted a go.”

Of course, they wanted to check out the iPad, not him. But an opening’s an opening, right?

I’ve had similar experiences here in San Francisco. So many people want to check the iPad out, it’s impossible to use it in public. I was too embarrassed to take out my iPad at Ritual Coffee Roasters the other day, even though I had work to do. I used my iPhone instead.

Anyone else got a story?
