I like the candid comments about netbook shortcomings.  The netbook seems like a great concept with fatal flaws in bringing it to market.  Perhaps the notion of a "SmartBook" will gain the traction the netbook failed to attain  Huh?

You need a touchscreen that supports gestures, as the iPhone has amply demonstrated. A gesture-capable trackpad is fine as an addition for that touchscreen, but not as a replacement.


I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

Apple is not the only company that has claimed the netbook niche to be short lived and underpowered. I think they are the flex-fuel and hybrids of the computer segment ... a bridge to the next step, rather than being the next step. Does it feel to you as well, that we are sort of in a lull before the next big storm? I feel as though there are a whole buncha new things out there are are just on the horizon of being deployed. I believe next year is going to be very, very interesting indeed.

And since it will be the first year out of the Decade from Hell, I am double excited.

It is now believed, that after having lived in one compound with 3 wives and never leaving the house for 5 years, Bin Laden called the U.S. Navy Seals himself.
