Every Artist's Dream Mac (and it's not made by Apple - wait, what?), and the New Gadget That Will Make Post-Modern Readers Sell Their Entire Libraries

Some people just made an award-winning new Tablet Mac! What? Some people? That's right - not Apple. But how? I don't have all the answers right now, Frodo. But it's true: "Axiotron" modifies MacBooks, making them into some sweet-looking pen-stroke recognizing, every-application-working-under-the-pen, hand-writing-into-text masterpieces. This is weird, but hey, Macworld gave these "ModBooks" the Best in Show award, so they can't have screwed the beauty that is the MacBook up too bad. Click here to check these babies out.

Amazon, the general store of the future, and the future is now, and Tomorrow Land is... today - because the 60's - nevermind. I don't want to spoil the surprise. Look, just came out with a handheld electronic book reader. "Big whoop", you might say, like I did. But the catch is that it is lightweight (like a book), about the size of a book (like a book), does NOT heat up (like a laptop), reflects light like paper (like a book - somehow), is always connected to the internet (unlike a book - a feature that Amazon pays for so you don't have to mess with fees), etc. It actually looks pretty cool - you are always connected so that as soon as you realize that you need to read Beowulf, you can click two buttons and in 10 minutes your time waiting in line for the People Mover can become scholarly, you Anglo-Saxon philologist, you. Anyway, don't take my word for it, check out Kindle.
