3 September 2010
When I was a kid in the 1980s, I had a calculator watch. Not Just a calculator watch, but a scientific calculator watch. Prior to that, I had one you could play a game on. It was clear that this was the way forward for the 80s equivalent of geeks, techies and nerds. Portable data banks became big, and the home computer was taking the UK by storm, the next step was clearly to make it a programmable calculator. Only it wasn't. Things went all retro, with analogue dials back in favour. Chic, elegant, and very boring. I mean - all they do is tell the time, and maybe the date!
Now fast forward to 2010 and Apple have just announced their new updated iPod range. Yes, the iPod touch has been updated with a new higher res screen and camera, but the thing that caught my eye was the Nano.
Here's hoping someone does a teardown soon. Who knows - they might be hackable!
