    I miss my S7. Loved the infrared sender in the thing. Loved going to bars/restraints and changing the channel to what I wanted to watch. (i was never a dick about it)

    Next year I'm looking to get the note 10 if it has 5G. They've been busy building 5g 'towers' in my neighborhood.
    It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

    Well, carrying around a model M isn't exactly an ideal solution either.

    I can control every modem computer in my possession with this "phone." I could use a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, but I can use the touchscreen and "swypey" Gboard just as well. Incidentally, this Swype method of "typing" is pretty much exactly what I had envisioned thirty years ago. I didn't think it would be on such a small keyboard though.

    I've never had a Zeon and prolly never will. All those things do is encourage bloatware (spell corrected to Blyatware... I like that!)

    I suppose I might need a newer Windows at some point. But I sure hope not. XP is painful enough.

    The best thing about the present is that we can use all the things from the past, too. I still do all my financial work on an Amiga 2000. It hasn't stopped doing anything it did when I bought it second hand twenty years ago. In fact, unlike Windows PCs, it does more and better than it did when it was new.

    Man, if I could get a modern laptop with a model M and a trackball, I wouldn't care if it was six inches thick and weighed twenty pounds.

    That's the problem with the progress of consumer electronics. Designers focus on smaller and smaller and cheaper instead of better.
