I'm not sure what I think.  I need to think on it some more.  First thought, though:  this could be the next big gaming platform.  My not-so-sharp-anymore eyes could see pixels in games, and I wouldn't be tethered to the desk.  With the exception of the original Nintendo 8-bit, I haven't been wooed by any non-computer gaming device.  Handhelds also failed to appeal.  Maybe Apple will change that.  Link to article is below.

So, what's the HID*....an index finger?

Priced "somewhere between the cost of a high-end iPhone and Apple's most affordable Mac notebook."  

I'm guessing this apple product will pass me by, same as iphones and itouch(es) which I've still never seen. But then, I don't get out much. Not counting moving houses 2x/wk or another country, another continent. [Image Can Not Be Found]

But... but... isn't this what my iTouch already does? Plus so much more?

I've got an extra drooling towel, Toger.

If I had one of these babies I'd have to put myself on a App Store budget.

The funny thing is I never in a million years thought I'd become a fan of Apple. I always considered their Macs as mere toys. Now look what's happened: I've been seduced into their evil fold. It's a trap! [Image Can Not Be Found]
