Electronic newspaper? lol, not going to happen.
I think parts of that are possible, but others are just stupid

It is within the relm of reason. But would people want to carry around the device to read the newspaper? With having to store it themselves and be responsible for not breakign it?

That is the real question.

wow your school lets you stream video?!?! my school is so strict about that. its a huge no-no.


haha, well i don't know if you should be that excited about it, its really short. there's no real dialog. its basically a montage. and i guess....frightening yet plausible.

but basically, EVERYTHING (almost) is touch screen and wireless. and apparently all run by microsoft. where's the competiton from apple in all of this futuristic nonsense!

My school lets me torrent stuff after booting into Ubuntu from a memory stick :P I was amazed at that. Very good for downloading Windows 7, too, having a 100Mb connection at your disposal.

Interesting video tho. The idea I loved most was the mutiple-debit card-shaped thing.
