When Tim commented yesterday that he's getting a Kindle, I was going to suggest that perhaps in a few years I would trade my useless, goofy original Fly 1.0 pen for his Kindle. But then today, David highlighted a new iteration of "pentop computing," so maybe my Fly will become a valuable collector's item, recognized as a pioneering device.
Or... no. The one benefit of buying one of the things is that I'm quite certain these pen-based systems will never be more than an oddball sideshow, and the entire genre is safely ignored. Also, as a side note, despite David's post title, these pen-based computers have nothing to do with "e-paper." They use specially printed paper paper.
