J.J. Abrams Invented the iPad

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2010 2:36PM
You think 'Mad TV' was the first to use the name iPad? Actually, the name was used in a 1999 episode of 'Felicity.' Her friend is trying to decide which computer to buy and rattles off a list of products that are available at the store...hmmmmm.

Obviously she mixes up "Thinkpads" and "iBooks." Either that or J.J. Abrams has powers we mortals can't understand.

It is surprising that anyone could come up with such a unique name prior to the products existence.

Actually it was mentioned in 1995 movie 'Johnny mnemonic' starring Neo. Oh wait... He invented the iPhone! Well, he didn't invent it, but he was looking for it! No, seriously, if you dare... watch the movie.

Maybe someone from Lost traveled back in time and told her? Either that or it could be that Hot Tub Time Machine again?

if you remember Felicity herself traveled back in time in the final season so anything's possible.
