- 9:11am – read an interview, in the Virgin Blue Magazine, of Toshiba General Manager Mark Whitttard. Quote: “I think eventually the keyboard will disappear and forms of input will be handwriting and voice. We see that in maybe five years’ time there will be flat, slate-style products without keyboards that will be very portable and compact. We actually have a prototype that folds up – imagine an A4 sheet of paper and fold it into thirds as if you’re putting it in an envelope to mail it. We’ve developed some very flexible LCD screen technologies.”
WOW…straight from the horses mouth! Maybe true Origami is et to come!

This post has been prepared throughout my working day using nothing but my OQO 02 with Dopod 838 pro for connectivity. I am not preaching or teaching; only telling you how I use my OQO. It is my desktop, notebook and Mobile PC. So far so good.
