    hyper subpalmtop

    Super palm top. Although it won't be around for quite a while.
    IBM's (NYSE: IBM) research division said it has developed a prototype of a computer no bigger than an index card that the company claims packs the computing power of a regular-sized desktop unit. The company plans to unveil its "MetaPad" next Monday at an Arizona technology conference.

    The device has a 10 GB hard drive and an 800 MHz processor. It is just five inches long, three inches wide and about three-quarters of an inch thick. The MetaPad holds 128 MB of memory and weighs in at nine ounces.

    "It can transform in seconds into a handheld, desktop, laptop, tablet or wearable computer, without having to be rebooted," IBM's Matt McMahon told NewsFactor.

    Nice. Way to go Big Blue....
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
