Asking "Could you tell me the time?" might get my favorite reply "TIME TO BUY A DAMN TIMEX!" as I walk off.
I prefer to break into an incredibly bad rendition of Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and that usually gets them running off on their own. :)
I actually had an idea for an e-reader back when the first laptops came out. My vision had a leather binding (like a REAL book) that opened and had screens on both sides- so you could read it like an open book, and you could load new books from cartridges (like the old game consoles). But considering the cost/quality of screens at the time, I figured it could never be made cheaply enough to sell at a price point where it would take off. Should have filed a patent anyway...
