The world now knows i exist! I suppose i better put away the bowl of warm water and razorblades so i can now bathe in my newfound glory!
Our world exclusive yesterday disclosing Apple's pocket-sized, enhanced version of the recently announced iPad fondle-slab device has drawn a good deal of excited comment. Naturally there could be nothing tastier than whipped-up hype digested, excreted, eagerly gobbled up again and finally plopped onto a plate for your Friday …
All very witty, but it got me thinking. Did you see the iPad keyboard dock? It would be really cool if they designed something like that, but with the ability to fold the pad down against the keyboard, thus, protecting the screen. Possibly even forming a complete, sealed unit. Get one of those together and I think I'm sold on the pad idea.
We should have at least had the prophet (profit?) handing down the tablets (bugger - pads) to the adoring disciples.
And a StephenFry in holy rapture.
Them black columns in the 2001 filum have got nothing on the way these slates have got the monkeys all jumoping up and down.
Playmobil - it's Friday ffs!
How about looking even further into the future:
- handwriting input (with optional input guidance)
- lifetime of persistent storage
- multiple storage capacities
- real-time access to old data
- colour and monocrome
- 1:1.4142 aspect ratio
- 14.3" diagonal
- compatible with huge array of input devices
- still has A4 in the tech specs
- A5 version rumoured (7.15" diagonal)
- custom covers available
I've seen the future!! And it's an A4 notepad.
...The Register's editorial office to be a cross between some sort of bacchanalian revel and a fifth grade field trip to the chocolate factory. An awful lot of impulse-driven consumption, with the possibility of pained regret and a 500 word essay afterwards.
No real point... just an observation. Sort of explains a lot, and helps keep the whole thing in perspective.
