Macrumors keeps with the Slate Meme by digging deep into Apple’s archives and pulling out the ‘MessageSlate’ prototype from the early 1990’s.  To us, this gives less credence to the iSlate name.  Apple, and specifically Steve Jobs, are not nostalgic for old terms and products and like to look forward not back.   Plus, this prototype is upside down.

Can you think of a time where Apple pulled an old entity from its past (Steve Jobs not withstanding)?
