More importantly, the article says silk could be used for cybernetic implants, that's what I want.

So, convert a crappy product into actual crap?

Biodegradable =/= edible...
edible =/= tasty...

Hey, subby, why don't you come over to my place and I'll watch you chow down on my compost pile.

Yes well I see the Apple plan to make them out of slaves instead of just with slave labor is coming along nicely.

Badmonkey82009: Next week Apple is going to sue Nestle and patent chewing.... great.

Don't think they' haven't tried that already. Hell, they have probably tried to patent holding a device in one hand while manipulating a user interface with the other, and resting said device on a surface (be it flat, rounded, or any other shape made of matter of any density) and using it with both hands. They probably patented the whole "pinky-thumb to side of face" thing that people do when they mimic talking on the phone, since they did invent that after all.

Actually Subby, people sell their old iPad for a substantial percentage of what they paid for it. It's the Android tablets that are practically worthless, just like your lame opinion.

You can eat your iPads now, for all I care.

So the `new product` cycle will be speeded up so that they don`t have time to go off?
