The problem there is that it would be COMPLETELY BLOODY UNUSABLE.

1: OS X was never written for touch devices. Neither were any of the applications. Assuming it has the same DPI as the MacBook Pro in front of me (13", 1280x800) it would be next to impossible to hit, well, anything on the menubar or the close window button or pretty much anything else.

2: A 1GHz ARM chip isn't fast enough. Funnily enough, I happen to own a 1.25 GHz G4 iMac with 512 RAM and a 1024x768 display. Roughly equivalent to the iPad's specs, and running Leopard like your hypothetical tablet would. It is, again, almost unusable. Applications takes forever to open. Buttons seem unresponsive. It's as fast as it ever was, but it just doesn't compare to modern computers. And your hypothetical tablet would be.

3: The battery would last about 3 hours. And I'm being very generous there.

9 MA Cyberbullies Indicted For Causing Suicide 709

Raul654 writes "Massachusetts teenager Phoebe Prince committed suicide on January 14. After her death, it was revealed that she had been the target of cyberbullying for months (and that her teachers were aware of it and did nothing). Today, nine of her classmates were indicted on charges including harassment, stalking, civil rights violations, and statutory rape. Prince's suicide echoes the earlier case of Megan Meier, who committed suicide after being cyberbullied by a classmate's mother."

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
