Gresso classies up the iPad with 18k gold logo and ancient wood case -- Engadget
Nice! As an unemployed recent university graduate and part-time paid technology blogger it's been a while since I've been able to afford any kind of fun gadgets. I have, however, gotten to play around with a friend's iPad and was impressed. It's also worth noting that two other tech savvy friends (one programmer, one IT) have both picked up iPads to experiment with and like what they've seen.
The future of computing appears to be mobile. While that's hardly an original insight, it's still an emotional one. The first computer I can remember seeing in person was a closet-sized mainframe. That and for genre writing it is important to try and anticipate just how mobile, small, and integral to the human experience computing will become in the coming years.
