Cheesesteak, Dad Vail Regatta, IPad

I'll take "Things with Philadelphia origins for $500, Alex." Yes, the IPad has some local roots. Read Joseph DiStefano's "PhillyDeals: The IPad's magic touch has local origins," in today's Inky. Here's the opening paragraph:

Apple Computer Inc.'s iPad runs on touch-pad technology developed by a firm called Fingerworks at the University of Delaware, funded by Main Line investors, then spirited west to Apple's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, in a quiet deal that left both sides happy, at the time.

It's an interesting story.
