Netbooks On The March

Looks like my cheap Netbook is on the horizon. Write-up in the NYT. Saw another one, an Acer, in the library today.

Inexpensive cell phone chips with Linux and Cloud storage. Not for me as a primary machine, but a luxury upgrade for low-income or mobile smart phone users without home Internet access. And depending upon Wi-Fi as a public utility, something the big ISP's have been trying to thwart.

Interesting intel by way of my niece Stephanie, a high school senior who hardly ever actually calls anyone on her cell. Texting is the medium for the Millenials. Full circle to UNIX "talk". Observed numerous Millenials at local restaurant Masa all using iPhone clones. Clamshell cell phone going away.
