What’s Your New Years Wish?



2008 is already history for some of our readers and fading fast for others. As I’m spending some much needed down with family and friends back in Chicago, I’m both looking back and looking ahead. The looking ahead part is tougher this year as there is a lot of uncertainity in my theatre life.

The wife and I just finished our annual looking ahead list (we don’t call them resolutions) and the underlying theme is for a return to simplicity. I can see that playing a part in the ongoing search for better mobile tech solutions in a big way.

So, if you to care to share, what are your wishes/resolutions/thoughts for 2009?

    A one kg tablet with a 2 GHz+ i7 processor in a form factor like the Motion LS-800 so I can run Dragon Naturally Speaking from a small fanny pack. Optional external battery for longer run times.

    I’m going to keep this technical as this shouldn’t turn into a political thread.

    Definitely wish for WiMax to come to LA, and I would hope that either Apple comes out with a proper tablet PC (unlikely) or that Microsoft puts some serious marketing behind tablet PC’s for academics (equally unlikely, but actually has a chance of happening). Also wish for some *real* battery tech to finally release, like we’ve been promised since how long? to get real 24 hr battery life and not just on power-saver mode either.

    As a lot of us enter this New Year, there is uncertainty.

    With that in mind, I just want to wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
