Xerox did take that technology and do something with it. Just not something very good. And, at this point, the Slashdot Taco/iPod meme swims into my mind, where the iPod is a Mac Plus and the Nomad is the Xerox Documenter. It sure LOOKED like you got more for your cash with the latter. But, again, it's about doing something right, more than being innovative.

National Rail timetabling/route information on the BlackBerry is plain and simple and FAST. Which is exactly what I need. It makes the £3.5k I fork out on a season ticket slightly more reasonable...
Then again, I am trying to work up the right degree of anger to vent my spleen about this iPhone app. I can't. Because, you know what? The fact that they're looking this way for application development is probably a good thing. What use would a website that only works -say- in Internet Explorer 6 be? At least they're trying to be contemporary. And £40k? *pfffffft!*

Yup. In my hallway, now stashed APART from the pile of stuff I keep meaning to put on the street with a sign that says "works! please take me!" is a Mode32 floppy disk. This Connectix software "cleaned" the dirty ROMs in early Macintosh II systems, enabling them to address more than 8MB RAM. I can't throw it away. Because, you know, I might need it again.
