What a interesting idea:
It might have sound bizarre or purely unbelievable when Mont Blanc launched “fraud proof” ink saying “Only one person will own this ink – You,” but given the reputation of the iconic pen manufacturer you can’t help but trust. Recognized as the icon of writing culture, Mont Blanc has developed an ink that is linked to each individual as matchless as a fingerprint. This new innovation is comprised of components containing an invisible, inimitable botanical code which is similar to the human DNA code. Available from Spring 2010, this revolutionary set of writing instruments with the Personal Code Ink will be offered for the first time in handcrafted Montblanc pens imbued with a new, cutting-edge ink to facilitate the manual art of self-expression.

As I have a iPad I have contributed to this (-;
Yesterday, when Apple announced it was pushing back the international launch of the iPad until the end of May, high demand was cited — over 500,000 units delivered, it said. And today, we’ve got a report out from NetApplications that indicates the iPad might be quickly making inroads with users. Over the first week of the device’s public availability, the report says, the iPad nabbed about 0.03 percent of all web traffic. For comparison, the iPhone averages about 0.51 percent of traffic. This number nearly matches web traffic for BlackBerrys in March — 0.04 percent (Android grabbed up 0.07 percent, as did Windows Mobile). Of course, NetApplications tracks only a sampling of website traffic to gather its data, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for longer term trends.
