of this month.
Here at the Deli
we couldn’t help wondering what Moses would have made of such a device? While the immediacy of the touch sensitive screen and ubiquitous spell checker would no doubt have been helpful the limited battery life and wireless connectivity would surely have proved a disadvantage…
