    What, AI doesn’t get a look in?

    The time has come. Several teams are working on NLP applications, and one of these is close to home.

    The time has come. Nothing will be quite the same.

    So ebook sales to track which part of the iPod quarterly sales jump ?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPod#Sales

    240,000 kindle sales first half of 2008
    http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/news.phtml/16588/17612/amazon-kindle-sales-at-240000.phtml

    So iPod like sales tracking would be about the 2004 ipod sales number for 2009 with the big jump
    going into 2010 that matches iPod going to 5-6 million per quarter.

    Desktop printer / rapid prototyping manufacturing is about a 1 billion a year industry.
    The low end of the market is getting more introductions.
