Today, the word tablet brings to mind the shinning screen of an iPad or other device. Before these gizmos brought Star Trek tech into our daily lives, the word tablet brought to mind something else entirely. In 1888, a paper mill worker named Thomas Holley collected scraps of paper from the mill floor, knitted them together and thus invented the legal pad. This was the tablet of the 19th century, and oh boy, it was packed with features!
The list of features is so impressive, you may want to consider one of these as your next tablet. These tablets require zero electricity to operate. The operating system is rock solid. There are zero updates! In fact, throughout their history and today, these devices maintain a perfect score for anti-virus protection. Even in the face of recent cyber attacks from Russia, China, North Korea and disgruntled U.S. Citizens, the legal pad has proved impervious!
Many new tablets today allow the use of a stylus or electronic pencil such as the Apple Pencil. These manufacturers claim this is a new feature. We have news folks. The legal pad seamlessly pairs with thousands of different writing instruments from every manufacturer. What’s more, these writing devices are also electricity free! The legal pad comes in a variety of sizes and colors. They make the perfect gift for students young and old. Legal Pads come pre-loaded with lines for word processing and a variety of games such as hangman, Pictionary and tic-tac-toe.
