Turns out The Onion really is America's finest news source. They report the news 18 months before it happens. Proof:

The Onion, February 2004: "F*** Everything, We're Doing Five Blades"
BusinessWeek, September 2005: "Gillette's Five-Blade Wonder"
The Onion, January 2009: "Apple Introduces Revolutionary Laptop With No Keyboard"
TechCrunch, September 2009: "Touching: All Rumors Point To The End of Keys/Buttons"

We can only hope this means NASA's Larry King Simulator will soon be a reality.
