I think it's feasible in the past, I already have one in my pocket.

You have a device that is very useful for what it does, but that cannot replace a desktop/desktop replacement computer. So I'll repeat a question you haven't answered that will prove the usefulness of the P-ISM as a desktop replacement computer: "Could you do word processing on a cellphone or iPod for instance?"

Well, by definition all these are computers since they can "store, retrieve, and process data"... And so is P-ISM.
You didn't answer my question. Is an iPod or a cellphone a computer too? After all it computes data.

Yes, I did. You have a reading or sight problem then.

5 pens... hmm I prefer a much slimmer cellphone thanks!

Apples and oranges... for the 3rd time?
Yes, we have pocket computers, but (for the zillionth time) ones that cannot be desktop replacement computers for many reasons, size (and therefor ease of use for daily work) being the most obvious here, while the P-ISM is "smaller than the smallest portable computer" (quoting myself) and YET can potentially become THE desktop replacement computer since for example the projected keyboard is way bigger (i.e. easier to use) than a cellphone/handheld/whatever keypad/touchscreen, or even a netbook keyboard! Due to its nature, it could well be set to ANY size, including that of a "standard" 104-keys keyboard if we wanted!

Could you do 3D rendering on that small pocket PC? Could you play videos with full post-processing and oversampling? Could you play games like Crysis?

I can do that on my desktop.

End of discussion.

-- and yes I can do word processing on a cell if I had the application coded for it, I don't see what's your point. This is a SOFTWARE problem, not a GADGET problem.

Ah, okay. Rolling Eyes I can already imagine the rows of desks with hundreds of employees typing corporate or business plans, weekly reports, bosses' letters, etc. ... ON FREAKING CELLPHONES!!!!
You'll really say ANYTHING to win an argument, won't you?
Anyway, thanks for the laugh.

You mean those crappy virtual keyboards? They ARE already on the market and can be hooked via bluetooth or some other means Rolling Eyes

I couldn't believe it's INPUT that you're concerned about!
