Itty Bitty Computer

Wow, talk about a tiny computer:

http://www.oqo.com/hardware/basics/

Hmmm, what possible use could the OQO have in libraries? Well, I suppose we could carry them around with us and hunt for bewildered patrons lost in the stacks. We'd just whip out our handy little OQO, search the online catalog using its wireless connection (note to self: library would need to have wireless for this to work), and tell the patrons what wonderful books they can find on their topic. And all of that without the inconvenience of walking back to a computer station. Wow.

Somehow I don't think that will fly as an explanation of why I need an OQO at my library. Oh well.

Thanks, Paul, for today's terrific tech tidbit!
