Tom Waits knew about the Apple Tablet in 1976.

25 Jan

True Story:

“That’s right, it filets, it chops, it dices, slices,
Never stops, lasts a lifetime, mows your lawn
And it mows your lawn and it picks up the kids from school
It gets rid of unwanted facial hair, it gets rid of embarrassing age spots,
It delivers a pizza, and it lengthens, and it strengthens
And it finds that slipper that’s been at large
under the chaise lounge for several weeks
And it plays a mean Rhythm Master,
It makes excuses for unwanted lipstick on your collar
And it’s only a dollar, step right up, it’s only a dollar, step right up…”

(For you young ‘uns, those are lyrics to Step Right Up by the one and only Tom Waits)

Look, I love a new product launch as much as the next man, I really do, honestly.  But seriously, please stop. It’s just a fancy computer thing. I’m sure it’ll be very sexy and all, but this insane cycle of speculation and prediction is making me want to break things. Starting with your Apple Tablet.

Thx loves.
