Apple's tablet computer makes cameo appearances at the Grammys and on Funny or Die
David Pogue and Walt Mossberg, eat your hearts out.

But they're going to have to wait their turn.
First Pee Wee Herman brought what looked like a non-functioning iPad to his Playhouse in a 2-minute FunnyOrDie.com skit.
And then, in a triumph of product placement, Stephen Colbert capped his Grammy monologue Sunday night by pulling a live one out from under his belt to read the nominees for Song of the Year.
Both cameos were clever and self-deprecating. Both seemed designed, in part, to defuse the unfortunate association with feminine hygene products.
