I wrote a couple weeks ago about the iPhone, giving NY Emmy chief Shelly Palmer a ribbing for being so in love with his iPhone. I noted that my old HP device is more functional on multiple levels. Shelly today acknowledges that the device isn't all that great for biz: poor network, no search, bad speakerphone, no email threading, and on and on. It is, he writes,, an ancestor of what he hopes will be the best thing out there.
I'm still waiting for my Sony Jogman Mini-Microwave Thermonuclear Reactor. (The very few of you who may have read my op eds in The Stanford Daily 1,000 years ago will remember that joke.) Or at least a device that does lots of great stuff without tons of limitations.
