kindle, iPad? Naaaahhhh

What I want for Xmas is that NewsPad thingy that Arthur C Clarke figured out for 2001 A Space Odyssey. Basically a Kindle on steroids. With a video cellphone thrown in for shits and grins. In less than 25 years we got everything from Star Trek, The Next Generation, except Warpdrive, and the Transporter. We still haven't scored the replacement for books, newspapers, videophones and TVs yet. And our brightest mind conceived this in what? 1968! Or 1965 if the initial production had it!

Probably my first actual case of covet.

I still want one!
