Video: Upon further review, coffee-table computer pretty darned awesome

Two more clips for you to follow yesterday’s post, the first another promo and the second a review from Popular Mechnics. The feature that lets you swap files between devices is neat, but how useful will it be five years from now when this baby finally hits the home-use market and everyone’s already carrying iPhones? I do like the shopping and check-splitting capabilities, though, even though they’re rudimentary compared to the rest. Imagine slapping some plastic down on the touchscreen, punching up Amazon, and literally just sliding the items you want over to your card. Or how about calling up a map, pointing in curiosity to some local take-out place you haven’t tried, and impulsively “grabbing” the most delicious-looking item on their virtual menu?
A golden age of whim-buying, obesity, and crushing consumer debt begins, my friends. Can you feel it?
