> Could it be some sort of eMate 300 carry case?
Nope. I find the eMates' case so sexy that it would be a shame to put
anything around it. And with eMates having that cute handle and being as
sturdy as they are, I don't see any need for a carrying case.
> A battery-powered USB connection hub
Nope. USB connection is in the making, but there won't be any need for a
battery since it can be powered by our little green friend.
> That red panel seems to match the area on each side of an eMate (slot
Sort of. But you're moving in the wrong direction.
> It's a marketing scheme
> It is a way to gather all our ideas for future projects to sell back to us
for our Newton?s ;-)
There you have me! OF COURSE it's a marketing scheme. I mean, given the fact
that in the last two decades there haven't been any Newton or eMate projects
I actually made a profit with, I'm always on the lookout for projects that
can cement my final bankruptcy. However, the marketing scheme is only a
sideline. The main issue is guessing my article (remember that FoFa stands
for "Figure out Franks article").
This time you won't get a new picture. Just two new tips.
Tip 1: Be aware that most of the pictures I posted so far only show a
fraction of the real picture. In other words, they depict a fraction of the
article itself or what's left over after making it. I was actually
flabbergasted when someone suggested my first image showed light passing
through a prism. Come to think of it, it definitely looks like light passing
through a prism, but it might be a good strategy to contemplate what the
complete picture would have shown.
I'll have to sell at least 100 of these articles before I'm no longer in the
red. I'll probably be lucky if I sell 20 in the next couple of years, even
though they'll come cheap. That's how smart a businessman I am. But
sometimes a man has to do what a man has to do. Just because he can.
