Comment Re:Bull twaddle, Seattle is best (Score 1) 253

Who the hell wants to live in Seattle? I don't even like working here... You get out to the suburbs and it's nice, but expensive. You have to go either waaay out (like past North Bend or Yelm or something), settle for a crowded apartment complex / condo / townhome, or live in a rat hole in Kent. I'm at 90 minutes average right now if I carpool. The bus is two hours, and I'm still around 90-105 minutes if I try to do the Sounder and transfer to local transit when I hit the city.

I can't tolerate being in that close of a space with that many people, so I'll stick with driving.

OK, I'll take your consumer point... I don't really agree about 95 sucking, once they got over the birth pangs, and I'd argue that 3.1 and 3.11 both didn't suck giving you four consumer "not sucks" in a row, but I see where you're coming from.

Exactly so. I think my favorite keyboard was on my T23. The T30 was weak, but the right layout at least. T40/T42/T43 were better. I still use my T60 daily. I've replaced the keyboard a few times, but that's just because of the quanitity of use I've put it through.

I could probably get over the chicklet (so-called island) style keys, but the crippled six-row layout is too much.

Of course, I'm still pining for 4:3 displays...

A tablet does not necessarily equal a pocketable computer.

I've tried using various laptops rotated 90 degrees for playing sheet music, but they don't exactly sit well on the stand. Admittedly, it's a special case, but there are lots of places where having a 1:1 replacement for a sheet of paper would come in handy.
