I like it. I can only see System on a Chip tech make it all smaller! even smaller still...
Now, form factor is an issue... qwerty is nice, but since I'm 6'10 and my hands are enormous I don't think there's a single keyboard that really pleases me except the one on my desktop. I just get used to the stylus instead, which you can learn pretty fast.
But I must say, it looks fancy. A real geek toy. It wouldn't surprise me OQO are heading the direction of mobile phones and portable gaming devices.
Still, what's the real use of this device? On the field data entry, be it a medical statistics or readings from a seismograph. Warehouse inventorising. A huge number of things, but for which most... a battery lifetime of 8 hours might be minimal.
You don't need to think...
They do that for you, and I did laugh. The ad was good... Purpose is not to attract people that would generally never join the force. Its to raise awareness that they need people. I think it accomplishes that and puts a smile on people's faces.
26k for a 6bn deal, where can I get that kind of service?
Granted... this is wrong, but its still a deal from heaven, if he gets caught he suicides too... something smell fishy to me.
On the paypal note... Why eBay won't budge:
Paypal is a huge cash market, its a bank, it is able to run interest on all transactions in its own favor. Another thing is that Paypal has so much cash stashed away that it hardly needs to debit credit cards to process transactions. eBay of course wants to maintain control over this. And Google itself would definitely like a piece of the pie.
Google might not have been playful trying to throw this anti-eBay bash in Boston, but probably didn't think about the consequences. I think eBay was very right to retaliate pulling its ads. Google knows they are in the wrong, eBay has all the right to do whatever they want with their service (within reason).
Don't expect anything to come out of this... its business as usual.
See?! Even readers are getting it wrong!
The text says "compromising" not "comprising", if its even correct to use "comprising".
