Pronunciation: eye pad dik ted

Sentence: Although not as tech-savvy as most, George had gotten an iPad for his birthday and was totally hooked on it. He had become ipaddicted to the little machine. It absorbed his every waking hour and his only interraction with others humans was over machinery. He had neither the time or the energy to pursue real-live girls. For George's benefit, one hopes they make a new version soon that can allow George to marry and have kids online. We doubt George's mother would approve...she of the black & white tv; Beta tapes and rotary phone...

Etymology: iPad (A tablet computer made by Apple Inc...) & Addicted (compulsively or physiologically dependent on something habit-forming)
