Is Ginger a breathtaking device that will change the world, or just another Scooter-like invention? "Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer said earlier this week that the show will reveal what Ginger--also known as IT--is next week on the show. So far, all we know are clues gathered from filed patents, which are about methods for making a "personal mobility vehicle" that could carry people up stairs or over other irregular surfaces. Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs and Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos have seen the device, with Jobs going so far as to say it could prompt builders to construct cities around it.
