mark12A: I can't believe they didn't mention IPads. Frikin' IPad is a direct ripoff of the PADD devices they use in StarFleet.

Yet another reason I HATE Abrams Trek. They don't even TRY to extrapolate any technology. Just a goddam, empty headed shoot 'em up movie....

Yup, Gene made sure to get cutting edge science advisors to work for him coming up with the gadgets.  Hell, most people don't realize that at the time Worf or Picard would tell the computer to play them some Klingon Opera or flute music, the idea of storing music on computers that you could call up at will was science fiction.  The first commercial electronic music player was from Audible.com in '97, TNG had characters calling up whatever they wanted back in 1987.

Hell, TOS had floppy disks back in the 60's when they wouldn't become actual computer storage devices until the 90's (talking about 3.5's here).

DamnYankees: Link isn't working for me.

That's Ok. Warp drives, Holodecks, transporters and sentient androids are not almost here anyway.

12.) Computers which explode when presented with a paradox.

I assume "she's gonna blow" refers to the article, or the fact that it's a slideshow.
