Do I really need this? A laptop/phone combo certainly has my inner techno-geek curiosity going, but would I enjoy using a laptop that has a linux based OS? It’s not really a laptop, but a laptop dock. I could access my Microsoft Office applications if my institution offered a Citrix XenDesktop solution, but that is a lot to ask of a small institution. There are two cameras, but this reviewer http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2379919,00.asp was not able to get a video chat app to work and was not impressed with the quality of the still camera. So, really, what would I use this for? It has AT&T service (no thanks) and a new OS to learn (no thanks). I would really like a phone and real laptop combo that has PC or Mac OS (preferable Mac, hee hee). In my ideal world of marshmallow clouds that rain gumdrops, I would have a iPhone with a MacOS running Office for Mac with that cool Motorola style phone and laptop body on Verizon’s 4G network…. I am a dreamer… but some of my wildest dreams are already coming true. 😉
Technology is amazing. With a special type of non-invasive illumination called two-photon microscopy, scientists now can look at 3D motion of cells. Just amazing…http://www.gizmag.com/3d-microscope-movies-living-cells/18138/ Wonder how much this is going to cost?
