New Dog, Old Tricks
I can't believe this but today I have observed no less than three people using the latest wonder-gadget from Apple (the iPad) to play solitaire, Tetris and some other game which seemed to involve nothing more than poking the screen at moving shapes! Having just bought my own iPad and being convinced it conforms to Aurthur C. Clarke's third law (any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic) I am aghast that such a technological wonder is being used for such mind numbing activities; just dust off your ZX Spectrums guys!
