Technology is moving so fast...
Anyway, I thought that was both neat and frightening at the same time. Reminded me a bit of the Brian Herbert (son of Frank) Dune series. The technology to create cymeks could exist in the not entirely distant future.
Staying in the technology zone – I saw this new Dell model – it looks pretty cool and compact (I’m into “clean”, “compact”). I liked the concept – a fold up desktop (a little mobile). Single unit (less cables, hate cables, have way too many cables). Integrated keyboard – which has pro’s and con’s. On one hand – the keyboard fits the machine like a glove. On the other hand, what if you don’t like the keyboard. I’m picky about my keyboard (since I spend so much quality time with it). One thing I didn’t like about the keyboard was the location (and actually the use of) the touch pad. First, I’m not a fan of touch pads and second, I’m a lefty. If you are going to put a touch pad on the keyboard – it better be under my thumbs – else I want it on the other side! When I use my laptop for more than a couple of minutes – I have to stick my USB travel mouse in, the touch pad drives me nuts quickly.
Actually – why don’t we see any desktop keyboards with the eraser mouse? I’ve looked high and low for one – if I could stop having to reach for that stupid mouse all of the time, I could save lots of time.
Anyone know of regular desktop keyboards that have the feature of a laptop?
It would be nice to have both the eraser mouse and buttons on the keyboard as well as a regular mouse.
Pointing to this blog again – I was reminded of my own “I wish I had done that” story. That blog links to Bessemer Venture Partners and a page of theirs entitled “anti-portfolio”. You can read my “wish I did that” story here. Missed opportunities…
And some funny stories here about “corporate lessons”. Reminds me of ROT (rules of thumb) for some reason.. I liked lessons 4 and 5 best.
