Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine may remember the PADD, or “Personal Access Display Device,” a handheld computer carried around by members of Starfleet: Well, it looks like there’s going to be an iPad app that’ll adopt a PADD-like look to help your social networking information live long and prosper. Also, look cool.
According to Gizmodo, the app will be titled not the “iPADD,” (too easy?) but “Captain’s Log,” which is subtler, but as good a Star Trek reference as any in our book: “Captain’s log” were the first two words spoken in the original broadcast of “The Man Trap,” the first episode of Trek, in 1966. (Naturally, William Shatner got the honors.)
