  2. 2. A little Tablet History Tablets in the future from the past Zdnet – Tablet computers: An overview March 3, 2014
  3. 3. The early Apple connection • Alan Kay from Apple’s Advanced Technology Group wrote a paper in 1972 entitled ‘A Personal Computer for Children of all ages” which was a blueprint for an education-oriented portable computer. In summary he said: “The size should be no larger than a notebook; weight less than 4lbs; the visual display should be able to present at least 4000 printing quality characters with contrast ratios approaching that of a book; dynamic graphics of reasonable quality should be possible; there should be removable local file storage of at least one million characters (about 500 ordinary book pages) traded off against several hours of audio files…A combination of this “carry anywhere” device and a global information utility such as the ARPA network or two-way cable TV, will bring the libraries and schools (not to mention stores and billboards) of the world to the home. One can imagine one of the first programs the owner will write will is a filter to eliminate advertising.
