Plenty of gadgets have borrowed from the iPod's design, so why shouldn't buildings get in on this action, too? The iPad (how original) will be a 23-storey residential tower with a look inspired by the Apple iPod. Crazy as that already sounds, here's the really good part: a "docking station" is part of the design! Designed by James Law Cybertecture International in Hong Kong, the $800 million tower will be built by Omniyat Properties, a Dubai-based developer.
Never mind that the iPod family will be in its Nth generation by the time this modern monolith is finished — can you imagine living in the iPad for years after that? What about when all our media fits in a memory wafer the size of your fingernail and the iPod is completely obsolete? Where will you live then, cool guy? Stop trying to live out Tron! It's a movie… it's make-believe.
