Pattern Recognition

It’s one of the joys of getting older.

All this talk of stands and external keyboards for the iPad reminds me of this. I remember folks coming to meetings circa 1999, at the height of the bubble, with their Palm V and an external keyboard.

They always looked kind of silly.


One thought on “Pattern Recognition

  1. Yes, exactly. Sort of reminds me of a joke I saw back in the day about “how to bring a TRS-80 into the world of business.” Someone had taken a TRS-80 Model 1, drilled a hole in the side of the case, pushed the cable from an IBM Model 026 keypunch through the hole, and taken a photo of the result. Lipstick on a pig? More like wings on a barn.
