Well of course it hasn’t but I AM writing this in bed using my dinky little Samsung NC10 netbook.
I got it because unlike most airports, my local one Leeds/Bradford won’t allow passengers to fly with an overnight bad AND a laptop case so I needed a netbook to fit into my hand luggage when I go down to Bob Puddy’s Bristol seminar in a couple of weeks.
It’s also handy because we take a lot of holidays and short breaks and with a battery life of (they say) eight hours it’ll work from a boat without shore power too.
The picture of it next to the DVD shows the size.
I’ve imported my Roboform settings too so can access online banking, Paypal, Clickbank, Aweber, blogs, FTP, Stats and everything else I need to work.
It’s the first time that I’ve realised how powerful the concept of ‘cloud computing’ is because most of the information I need to access on a day to day basis are held on other people’s servers rather than my own computer.
Combine this with some first rate open source and free software such as Filezilla, Kompozer and Open Office and I really can work from any computer anywhere in the world.
Looks like the future predictions are coming true.
All I need now is a powerful utility to stop me looking as though I’ve just been dug up when I work at 6.30am
