Solving a Problem

Aza Raskin talks about how the winner of the original X-Prize came to be.

When you are solving a difficult problem re-ask the problem so that your solution helps you learn faster. Find a faster way to fail, recover, and try again. If the problem you are trying to solve involves creating a magnum opus, you are solving the wrong problem.

Braille Credit Card

This credit card displays a transaction in braille amongst other features that help read a payment for the visually impaired. If they could only make these for the average shopper, the budget could be balanced. That’s asking too much though.

Tablets vs. Netbooks

Image source

Some argue that you need the keyboard, is the netbook a one trick pony?

Tablets provide an optimized experience for portability, mobility, and touch-based input with a rich selection of apps and games designed with their size and power in mind.

Laptops are cheaper, lighter, and more powerful than ever before. They offer a rich ecosystem of apps and provide the perfect platform where text input is required.

Netbooks can still provide a great platform for getting online, but so can laptops and tablets. Laptops may one day give way to tablets and smartphones entirely, and apps may move entirely online, but Netbooks - like word processors in the 80′s - will inevitably fall victim to competitors that offer a more dynamic ecosystem of apps, games, and features at an increasingly comparable price.
