Ray Bradbury would have hated SmartGlass

How would the late sci-fi author feel about Microsoft's SmartGlass? Probably not great, if his work is any indication.

Other than to say Smartglass sucks. Is rather pointless. I'd be saying the same thing if the author was kissing MS's @$$.

You've gotta admit, the end of Farenheit 451 would be a lot easier to manage if everyone had iPads with a million books on them.

Actually, who needs books? They could just save movies and TV on there. That'd be a better ending.

What's that? I'm missing the whole point of his book? Nahh...I don't think so.

On the other hand, as Amazon has already proven, it would be just as easy to alter or erase an iPad's contents if its online.
