that would be why I have the powerbook and bought a powermac when I
wanted more power at the desk. the little viaos are nice but whoa are
they dear to sony.

i actually LIKE the 2100 form factor, the screen is large enough to do
stuff on. I can't see how anyone could enjoy trying to do real work on a
phone. I sit here with 2@20" and 1@24" screens and I'm dieing (I really
loved my 3@21 sony's (2048x1536)) so tiny screens are not for me and a
phone is a phone (I don't care what it does if it doesn't make a decent
phone call it's dead weight).

I also don't care for the 'lets see if we can squeeze this desktop os
onto this little bitty device' mentality.


Special knowledge can be a terrible disadvantage if it leads you too
far along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
