Well I was down the pub drowning a few cold ones with my mates from San Fran (O'Docker you know who we mean) when I heard about Tillerman's scoop about Lady Gaga. Now that was a bit of news or what.
However the chap who was sitting next to me by the bar (and frankly a bit worse for wear) said he had something to top even that. What is it you might ask? Well hold on to your hats, for here goes something that will BLOW your socks off.
It turns out the much rumoured Apple Tablet or Slate is part and parcel of Alinghi America's Cup campaign!
Surprised? Well I was!
But it makes perfect sense. The iSlate is being announced Wednesday 27th January, just 10 days before the America's Cup kicks off, too late even for Oracle to fight back, challenge it in the courts or make its own tactical tablet. Its form factor is just right for busy crew with its touch sensitive screen and no need for pen or keyboard.
The final evidence is the photo above that when zoomed up shows a tablet being held by one of the crew members.
So remember folks, you read it here first.
Lets iSlate that one to the power of the blogger!
