@MattX. I sympaphise I really do. We recently went on holidiay to Northumberland and not one did we use teh sat-nav. It was maps all the way. Getting a little lost is fun and you often stumble upon hidden gems. I use my sat-nav mainly for getting me into city based locations where one-way systems and unfamilier road layouts make getting to your destination difficult. In my car, for long journeys I often have my sat-nav, iPod and phone connected via bluetooth (see the car-puter thread). For me, to roll up all of these into one device would be fantastic. The strange thing is that, for me at least, I want to decrease the tech I rely on, but only by rolling up the functions into a single device, and what is doubly strange is tha the best tech is the stuff we don't realise we rely on. The best stuff is not kept pristine on a shelf, but sits in our pockets heavily scuffed with the case writing wearing off, and used until it fails (often unexpectedly) when we realise what a sad and wretched state it was in. The problem is deciding what is good tech, and what is useless rubbish.
I've gotta say I'm kinda with mattx on this one (shock/horror)
why would you want that running a smartphone OS?
if the ipad was running OSX I would have bought one already - as it is, its got all of the flaws of the smartphone - minus the portability or phone features....whoop! and this is exactly the same but the android version.
IF you're gonna be carrying something netbook sized, why not carry a netbook - which is a hell of a lot more flaming useful
I would but she's hiding in the corner.........
I'll have even more of an excuse to drink this evening now - I sorted a computer out for one of the members of staff who wa so delighted at it being faster and rid of all the nasties I now have 2 more bottles of Chillian Red in my possession.....
Crikey, your staff must like you. Chillian and Argentinian reds. Mmmmmm
Bottle of Hobgoblin for me tonight, and that's from my own stash.
