the words begin
to bond with the cells
of the brain
as they seep into
the ear canal
and setup camp
small tents and camp fires
signs that they are not leaving now
intend to leave for a time
as they don’t fell trees to build
and plant corn in your ear canal
but long enough
to each consume the 10 days supply they brought
and then fester
as they seek egress
but know not how to leave.
the broom of “I was mad”
sweeping nothing away
the festering words
now digging deep into the ear canal
no planted grain to harvest
they begin to consume
the ear itself
until the words
become the ear
and nothing else is heard.
I was thinking about this yesterday after I wrote my 3rd Kindle review. Between the kindle and my Zune I carry more than 400 books every where I go. My dream as a child was to be a writer so I have a love of reading (my children inherited that from my wife and I, she loves to read as well). That got me thinking about what I would like to carry going forward when I get on the airplane (and yes, I am hoping Windows Phone 7 covers the remaining missing pieces).
- A device that combines the screen of the Archos internet tablet and the storage capacity of that device (500 gig)
- A device that easily plays Audible books
- A device that let’s me read my Kindle books
- A device that automatically syncs the office documents I am working on, right now (see my other blog http://docandersen.wordpress.com for more on the Syncverse concept)
- A device with a battery that last at least 6 hours and either a second battery that can be put into the device while it is one or, a way to easily connect to airplane chargers
- BluRay slot for movies
- HD screen rather than simply LCD
- Touch Screen
- not incredibly hot when on your lap
I don’t need to have lots of computing power, I can connect to my HyperV server at home if I need more horsepower than I am carrying. My Asus MT101 is pretty close to all of these specs except for the CD/DVD/BluRay addition. And frankly the USB connection drives (DVD etc) suck a huge amount of power. There has to be a way to build a device like this and make it highly functional.
In the past month I have posted eight or maybe nine iterations of this, the perfect device blog. We are so much closer today than we were five years ago. But realistically, not as close as we will be in five years.
