Where I work at the powers to be are talking about going electronic. Instead of laptops we're looking at Amazon Kindle DX's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Kindle

Seen a sample one so far; not impressed. First question I asked is "How well do they survive a drop to the floor?"  :-o

Well so much for that route. Because these units have a built in wireless, th AF won't allow us to use them.  :?

The Kindle is cool.. 

But read a book many years back called "Technoply." One of the things I remember is how technologies fail because people society, is slow to adapt. I do not think the PDA, or any other handheld device will catch on (long term).  People like books..

Some day, some where, somebody is going to invent programmable paper.  I am thinking it will be like a CD-RW.  An eBook book can be written, erased and rewritten.
