Is this the one wearable tech item that’s going to replace all the others?...

It sounds a bit like an infomercial for one of those slices - it cuts, it dices, it slices... It's call The Dash. Nifty name...

The value of this work lies in its ability to attract a completely new set of readers, when compared with other books on Jobs. Let me cite a personal experience.

Enter "skinput": -- bio-acoustic sensing technology that allows the human body itself to be used as an input device. According to Carnegie Mellon University researcher Chris Harrison, different body locations give off "acoustically distinct" sound waves when touched, opening up a world of possibility for touching feely techies.

For miracle sales, get a halo

It seems like every bus shelter you pass features a back-lit silhouette of a dancing girl or boy with wires coming out of their ears. You don't have to read the logo to know that it's another ad for iPod. But did you know that the ad is doing wonders for Apple PCs?
