... and there is no new thing under the sun.

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." - Ecclesiastes 1:9

Geekalerts reports on a company that - in a fit of creativity - has managed to come up with a new-computer form factor: a keyboard with a built-in computer!

Well, OK - maybe not all that new, given that this is essentially what the Commodore 64, the TRS-80 Color Computer, the Amiga, the Atari looked like... in fact, just about every personal computer from the dawn of the PC age used this form factor, and a connection to an existing "monitor" (your TV set) for the display. So while this is a neat little machine that packs a lot of power into a small form factor, the company's claims that "the new ZPC-GX31™ is a true innovation" seems just a bit over the top.
