The First 'iSlate'

With all of the discussion and speculation about Apple's iSlate announcement Tuesday, I started thinking about all of the previous tablet models that failed (Apple Newton, Palm Pilot, HP iPaq, CrunchPad) and came up with one that was wildly successful and continues to captivate people of all ages ... the Etch-A-Sketch. Introduced in 1960, the Etch-A-Sketch has a pure and simple design, unlimited creative potential, and is almost indestructible. And best of all, it has NO batteries and it's NOT Internet enabled so you can use it any time, any where!

Price: $13.97 at Amazon.
