The strange parallels between Microsoft's century start and decade's end

8. Tablet PC keeps on trying. In November 2000, at Comdex, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates unveiled Tablet PC, a concept that never really caught on.

‘CrunchPad’ morphs to become ‘Joo Joo’ tablet

Device, originally aimed at being inexpensive, now will sell for $499

The CrunchPad, a highly anticipated 12-inch tablet computer that was named as one of the 10 "most brilliant products" of this year by Popular Mechanics magazine, re-emerged yesterday as the Joo Joo. A legal battle over the Web-surfing device, no matter what its name, is likely to come.

The Joo Joo — an African term for "magical," its developer says "because this device delivers magic" — will cost $499, putting it well above the $300 to $400 price range initially envisioned for the tablet by TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington.  (Source: Suzanne Choney, MSNBC)
