Don't forget-- Star Trek was one of the first shows to use hand-held
computers-- the TriCorder on the original was the universal
computer! TheNextGang had more streamlined TriCorders (and everyone
must have perfect eyesight!), plus thos PADDs that everyone keeps
handing around.

I don't know how the dates line up, but TNG was around at least 10
years ago-- when did Newton first arrive? Who copied whom? (:
