You're alone in a room with the Windows 10 out-of-the-box apps. What do you do?

Bugger the jetpack, where's my 21st-century Psion?


Re: Data entry on the Psion Organiser

I LONGED for Psions, adored my Apple eMate (newton OS, netbook formfactor, built in handle... it ROCKS -- yeah, still works!), went through TWO clie's -- man were those great -- and when Apple introduced the iPad instead of eMate2, bought my first netbook, the 7" eee.

Currently, I do a ton of work on my iPad mini with external bluetooth keyboard: Teamviewer allows me to connect to my 27" iMac and drive it as if I were sitting right there, but from the comfort of a local coffeeshop where I can oggle coeds. Still wish there was a better integrated system, however: all the keyboard addons make the mini too bulky.

Lord, those Psions were gorgeous, though.

More Secure?

Not if Google is going to persist in its stupid insistence that a "master password"-type option is not necessary. Their position is "if someone is at your computer, you're already compromised;" this is inane on its face and truly stupid when you think about it for even a moment. Fine, they're at my computer: let's make it a WEE bit harder to get to ALL my stored passwords, shall we?

Come on, Google, at least offer the OPTION.
