The anti-Touchpad post

I'm posting from the new Berkeley apple store...about to spring for a new iPad.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Posting from my iPad2 64/3G, absolutely no interest in a Touchpad...even before it was discontinued.

It didn't exist.

I sprang for a 32 gb 3G iPad.

Double wusses. Posting from an Apple 2.

Plato...Bill Norris' folly.

It might have been a failure from the business viewpoint but it was an amazing platform. And at a time when the Apple II and the Altair were cutting edge, and long distance calls were expensive, it allowed people to do emails and real-time chats.
