    Boy, I looked @ that link and the pic below pretty much matches my slide rule, i.e. a Pickett (yellow) w/ a similar leather case - that one is going for $60 on eBay - my bros do eBay - maybe I should have sent it to them to sell? :)

    Lol. Her abacus almost led to us getting spanked as young kids, because she discovered us trying to slide across the floor with our butts on it. Very bad luck, she said.

    In real world time - the concept predated the tablet screen in 2001 A Space Odyssey, by two years.

    What's funny is remembering that before the ipad was released, many so-called experts said it was basically doa and would be a failure. Lmao.

    Yes, those claims certainly look a bit hollow now.

    I was one of the idiots that shunned the iPad. I went on an anti Apple phase after owning an original iPhone, hated being trapped by iTunes, gave the phone away and moved onto android, then the first windows 7 phones, back to Android, then I was debating what phone to get next and my girlfriend got me the ipad4 for Christmas. I didn't want it, but initially faked a happy face and started having a play. I haven't put it down since. I get withdrawal symptoms if it isn't within reach. It is the best bit of tech I have ever owned.

    Now if anyone talks about what phone they're getting next I just tell them "buy a new battery for your phone and buy an ipad instead". My One X only comes out if I get a phone call. BTW Android is the absolute worst OS, WP7 (now 8) is actually pretty amazing. Although, I can't see me spending money on a phone ever again. I'd rather have an old Nokia 3310 and an ipad mini than any smartphone. Anyway, squinting at a 4 or 5 inch screen is bad for your eyes and gives you wrinkles :)

    Funny, it has screw-in light bulbs on it.

    I'll tell my optometrist. He was using an iPhone the last time I saw him, lol. He had an iPad 4, too.

    I agree. I have no idea how people use their phones for like everything. Way too small of a screen for me.
