Apple I had written an entire article on the debate about whether or not the iPad is a pure consumption device, but realised I could summarise the entire debate into a single sentence: it's the difference between 'suitable' and 'ideal'. You can ride a unicycle from Amsterdam to Paris, but that doesn't mean it's better than just taking the car or the Thalys.

According to Stephen Wolfram, you can make a machine with a single head, only 2 independent states, and 3 symbols (i.e. trinary bits) that is Turing Complete.

I know that you weren't being literal... I just thought it was interesting how simple a Turing Complete machine can actually be.
