Steve Jobs iPad

RealClearPolitics reports that Illinois Representative Jesse Jackson Junior blames the iPad for how he believes it is “eliminating thousands of American jobs.” His reasoning behind that is the way most consumers no longer need to go to book stores such as Borders.

…why do you need to go to Borders anymore?

He blames the loss of jobs and store closures on the popular iPad, which you can just pick up, open iBooks, and read.
