I guess I have to clarify my point a bit. Do you really care where the

processing power is? I think that for the moment, stationary computers

will continue to be faster and cheaper than laptops/wearables. So it

seems better to concentrate on wearable connectivity, than on wearable

processing power. With good enogh connectivity, the border between

communication and computation starts to blur.

Another point: You will not always have the spare attention to do word

proccessing, web browsing or email anywhere. With my Newton MP 2000

and Nokia PC-card I can do web browsing anywhere, and it gives me a

feeling of safety and security. But still, for some reason, I do most

my browsing at the office. This is more a marketing than a

point: How do you convice the potential customer that with wearables,

she could work at places where she doesn't want to be in the first
