A glimpse of the 'new normal'

James Kendrik has a great post “a day in the life” post about his Ultra-Mobile PC, the Q1.  He uses a Samsung Q1 as his normal, take-to-work computer, even though its only about a half a sheet of paper big and 1.7 pounds.  James is a consulting geophysicist who works for some big oil companies in Houston.  His clients are pretty big-dollar people and his schedule, after reading him for a couple of years, seems pretty full.

What strikes me about this is how normal all this will appear in a couple of years.  One should be able to fit all their data and work material into something the size of a paper-back book.

If you’re interested in how appealing all of this might be, give James a read.
