      Yeah, ‘sitting in front of the Rosetta Stone’, as if the one in the British Museum was merely a replica. California.

        Dude, the Rosetta Stone was the first tablet computer. Think about it.

        (Because a tablet computer should weigh a ton and a half? Should be erected by regal decree?)

          Sure beats Siri.  Doesn’t have to refer to a massive online database.  And you can actually feel the characters.  Way, way ahead of its time.

        As the guy who actually wrote the article, I can tell you that it’s made abundantly clear that it’s a replica.
