According the the company's Media Analysis Platform, the response to the iPad was an overwhelmingly 83% positive.
With only 17% of the results coming in on the negative end of things, it would seem that we love it. Even if we ignore the neutral, the positive does beat out the negative.
We have to wonder, however, what falls into the neutral category? At 48%, neutral sentiment makes up a majority of the 83% favorability Sysomos arrives at. Perhaps this is the middling response we're seeing?
Whatever it is we've been saying, whether positive, negative or otherwise, we've sure been saying it a lot. According to the blog, there have been "477,537 tweets that included "apple" and "ipad" over the past two days; 33,892 blog posts and 7,315 traditional media articles."
Maybe Apple should just release a product called the iBuzz that we could talk about and rate forever.
