We dodged a close one! In the run-up to Apple’s introduction of its new mobile computing device, the product was frequently referred to as the “Tablet,” or, sometimes, the “iTablet.” While we at Tablet Magazine were flattered to have our name-coining abilities so prominently complimented, at the same time another part of us did not want to be drowned out by iTabletmania.

We need fear no more: earlier today, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the iPad. Yes, it’s being referred to as a “tablet,” but that is an improper noun, if you will. Call this thing by its name, and call us by ours. And remember that ol’ Moses did not bring two iPads down from the mountain.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
