Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Mike for the tip!

    That Felicity…is there anything she can’t do? Speaking of do, didn’t she cut her hair short cause she was batting for the other team?

    The iPAD she is referring to was an iMac-esque desktop computer, or “internet personal access device”, made by a company called Proview…

      I reckon the Ipad she refers to is only showing her confusion on computers of that era… Her “thinkbooks” and “iPads” could actually be ibm’s thinkpad and apple’s iBook :)
