Ready Or Not, Here "IT" Comes
New invention set to rattle the world, surpassing even the Internet ... or so they say.Think the Internet was a pretty cool idea? Theres a new product allegedly coming out that one journalist predicts will "change the world." And hes not just blowing smoke: Amazon.coms Jeff Bezos and Apples Steve Jobs both have seen the prototype and reportedly are very impressed. Online magazine Inside.com reports that "IT"code-named "Ginger"is an invention developed by 49-year-old scientist Dean Kamen. Sources are being very closed-mouth about the product, but Harvard Business School Press was impressed enough about the subject matter to advance $250,000 for a book about it, without knowing exactly what "IT" is.
Inside.com says journalist Steve Kemper pitched the proposal for the book. From that proposal, Inside.com surmised that a) its not a medical device; b) it will be a mass-market consumer item; and c) it has a fun element to it, as evidenced by Bezos "loud, honking laugh" when whatever "IT" is was demonstrated for him.
