tools: May 2004 Archives

I was out driving today, running errands, and I swept through McD's to grab a drink. Rather than having to chat into the squawk box, I pulled up and found a young woman standing outside about 10 feet away, taking orders. She did so on one of those notepad computers, not unlike the little portable units that you might see on Star Trek. Not quite as small as a Palm, but obviously much lighter than a laptop.

Next step: a swipe alley on the side of the notepad for one of my cards.

Next step: beam the drink directly to my cupholder.

Next step: merger with OnStar, for anywhere service.

You heard it here first.
