Dolphin drinks apple kool-aid

Now this one is hard to believe:

http://www.boingboing.net/2010/06/01...s-ipad-as.html

Last week, a young bottlenose dolphin named Merlin became the first of his species to join the growing number of enthusiasts using the Apple iPad. Dolphin research scientist, Jack Kassewitz of SpeakDolphin.com, introduced the iPad to the dolphin in early steps towards building a language interface.
Says one commentator on another site covering the same story:

I can't believe the dolphins are buying into this hype! It has no flash, and no usb port! And it sure does not have an anti-glare screen..

So they communicate. What do they say? So long and thank you for all the fish?
