    Few expected the iPod or the Cube. Fewer still know what Ginger, (the mysterious invention that impressed Steve Jobs so much that he allegedly invested millions in it,) will be. We only have to wait until Monday to find out and you can already order it from Amazon here:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000059MSD/
    But the questions is - will it have an Apple logo on it?

    if it was an apple product they'd have set a press conference for it, like they did the ipod.

    dean kamen's personal transportation device

    the big news is how some people say they have no idea what ginger is

    ...what a crock of sh**!

    the what the heck was that regis show about many months ago,

    and what the heck is the buzz about with diane sawyer debuting IT tomorrow - the high tech transportation device,

    and the wall street journal's mention that ginger could help boost a sagging high tech industry,

    and that scooter patent applied for by kamen which has been posted all over the internet

    ...if ginger is not a high tech transportation device and ends up being a cell phone or super pda, then it will stand as one of the world's best kept secrets in high tech history

    Where and when did he say that?

    There was a picture of her inside the booklet of the CD of Guns N' Roses "Appetite For Destruction". She was a phorno star at that time. I was abou 15 I do not know anything else about her, sorry.

    sounds like it might be interesting....but why will "everyone who owns one will be richer than Bill Gates"??? is this speaking metaphorically? i don't think anyone will be more rich than billy-boy in the near future.

    South Park

    any one see the South Park episode a few weeks ago about the "IT" invention by Mr. Maccy? It Had Steve Jobes in it as an investor for a new invention called "IT" I hope Ginger is not the the thing that was on South Park. Im not really into that sort of thing. :)

    POST 200!

    This is my 200th post. I guess I get to join the Ranks with some of you guys. But still way far off from 400... like a few of you are.


    I guess we dont have to talk about the "IT" or "Ginger" anymore. Kind of a cool toy but $3000.00! Thats a bit pricy.

    If I could "test drive" one and had that kind of cash to spend on something "revolutionary" I'd buy one in a heartbeat!
