Even with a tablet PC, when docked it is handy to have a pen surface flat on the desk for the occasional...

Man pines for abandoned electronic dog
The Arthur C Clarke/Stephen Baxter novel "Time's Eye" is a bit of a silly story which brings people of all different times together onto the same planet, resulting in Alexander the Great meeting the British Army and Genghis Kahn meeting astronauts from 2037.

The best marketing freebie ever
