Killing it for who, though. The guy who's going to buy this thing isn't going to be dissuaded because of product reviews. He's the guy who's gnashing his teeth because he couldn't get over to San Francisco for the live unveiling of this thing, and/or couldn't watch it on the webcast. There are a LOT of hipster doofuses out there like this. I've worked with several, and in my anecdotal experience, they've all got hipster friends who can't wait to buy these products, too.
As for the whole "sheeple" thing, how is buying this any different than buying Cubs season tickets? You're getting them for the fun of getting them, not because you're acquiring a top-notch product. It's a novelty and at least the iPad is wrapped up in a pretty package. The Cubs... not so much.
