Hey fellow nerds, anybody know where I could buy a vintage Penpoint based tablet computer? I have a Newton, Palm Pilot and Magic Cap and need to complete my collection! Ebay seems completely unsuitable for something this rare, and all the vintage computer sites a cursory Google search turns up seem to focus on desktops and game systems rather than portables.

We’ve been posting some of  the best quotes from our #SPAN15 London speakers all day (check twitter.com/googledesign!), but here are a few more of our favorites:
- “Prototyping shouldn't be a discrete phase but a part of the design process.” - Justin Belcher 
- “Privacy is the new luxury.” - Justin McGuirk
- “Advice to young designers: think more about the product and less about the design.” - Denise Wilton

Let the after-partying begin—replete with refreshing G&Ts and vibes from Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend. Stay tuned for updates on SPAN and many more conversations to come at design.google.com!

If at any point in your life Metroid meant anything to you, you need to see this.
I loved this so much I have to share again.

I will offer one tiny bit of feedback that I hope is taken in the vein of constructive criticism if this ever becomes anything else...

I loved how this film captured the zeitgeist of the 80s sci-fi environment in which the original Metroid and later Super Metroid were made. The sense of desolate beauty, the anxiety of isolation, the horror of the genuinely alien that was captured in films like Alien and Solaris.

However I felt like it was a slightly off note to have Samus be so fragile and disconcerted throughout. After all, the 80s were the era of the shockingly masculine and confidant woman. The era of not just Ellen Ripley, but Sara Connor and Pris and massive ass shoulder pads! Personally I wanted to see Samus deal with all the weirdness and creepiness of exploding a derelict moon with nothing more than a short pause, a slight frown, and a shrug of determination as she proceeded to "chew bubblegum". Of course when she finally made contact with the Chozo... that's when we would should the vulnerability (read as 'human' not as 'feminine')...

Anyhow, enough random personal headcannon! This short film rocks and I'm totally impressed and wish them luck! Would recommend.
OK, so this is really freakin' cool.

"The classic Nintendo franchise, Metroid, envisioned through the lens of 60s-70s science fiction cinema such as 2001, Alien, and Solaris: this was the concept for Rainfall’s most recent production. Instead of using a modern approach, a style was developed more in tune with the themes that inspired the first Metroid game in 1986: isolation, exploration, and the wonders of deep space."
