http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100127/ap_on_hi_te/us_tec_apple I saw this article and it just reminds me so much of star trek. These new devices are just like in Star trek next generation where they have these types of devices and they use them to get work done. Its amazing through the years how many devices have popped up on the market because start trek thought it up. Look at cell phones and how Captian Kirk had the first "flip phone" to call his ship. The main view screen was huge and now everyone has big screen TVs. Scientists are working right now on things like transporters (they can transport light from one spot to another right now) and they are working on things like anti-matter and how to store it. So many things have come from the imagination of star trek, and now these iPad tablets. In star trek they dont use money in the future and what do you know....the government is working on destroying our money as we speak! No matter who you are or what your beliefs though...you gotta love star trek.
