This is a followup post to one Steve inspired earlier: It’s Time To Stop Looking At Cheap Devices!
Emphasis added by me.
Oh, so the N800 is just the latest version of The Biggest Piece Of Shit Known To Man after all! (Elsewhere, Steve reports on it being able to now play DiVX videos. Big Fucking Deal. That’s not what I’d first want an Internet device to do!)
When my LifeDrive is working again, of course I’m going to torment myself by trying web browsing via WiFi on it. It should drive me nuts. Then I’ll most likely stop using that part of it altogether. The LifeDrive will be my new PDA, a video player, and a pocketable text/word processor. It’s never been my intent to use it for web browsing at all.
I’m no longer looking at something cheap when it comes to being able to use the Internet. The Net has gotten just too damned big to try to shoehorn into puny-powered devices.
Yeah, Intel, I’m casting a doubtful eye your way too!
