The Inventor Of The EBook Reader Is….Tom Hanks?

Here we see the true inventor of the ebook reader-Tom Hanks, or more precisely the character Josh Baskin that Mr. Hanks plays in the movie Big, holding up his proposal for the invention that was way ahead of its time.

Too bad Josh went back to being a little kid before he could see a profit from his invention. I wonder if any Apple or Amazon execs sat in on that pitch meeting?
