Apple's iPad. 9 Years in the Making?

How queer!

Was just browsing through this site’s archives and found this link to a prescient Kuro5hin article from May 2001:

The Apple iPad

  • Tablet: 11.5” x 9” x 0.7”
  • 12” 1024x768 LCD touch- and stylus-sensitive screen
  • No keyboard or mouse (optional attachment via USB)
  • USB port
  • Dual speakers and headphone jack
  • Internal HD
  • 5-hour battery life and charging cradle
  • Airport wireless connectivity
  • 2-3 lbs
  • $999

Which is particularly peculiar because the iPod wasn’t even released until 5 months later.
