I want an iPod Touch with a 12-14 inch screen and the width of a Macbook Air. I want to cradle my computer in my hand or lap and read it like a book. I don’t want to use a mouse or keyboard unless absolutely necessary. My fingers work just fine.
The majority of my life is centered around the internet. A powerful computer (like my Macbook Pro) is great for a few specialized tasks that really push it (which I personally enjoy doing to hardware). However, a huge percentage (90% or more) of the time I spend sitting in front of the computer is spent online. My email is held on some magic google server. My news comes from websites, I can do everything with my pictures online, and I can track my friend’s lives online, and I can write documents, create spreadsheets and presentations online. I don’t need a strong processor.
What I need is a strong internet connection.
I don’t care who makes this device (and sorry, Nokia, but your N800 does not cut it. I have used it and it misses the mark). I have a feeling this device will come from Apple. The phone manufacturers couldn’t produce an iPhone and computer makers still can’t make a system that is as quiet, cool, or small as my Macbook Pro (if judged by the same techical specs).
I’m looking to the future…
