People love to complain about the virtual keyboard found on the iPhone and iPod touch (myself included) but in reality it's quite good after the requisite learning period. It still needs haptic feedback but that's a topic for another blog post.If you're ok with a virtual, touchscreen keyboard, would you be able to tolerate one in your notebook? Wired's Leander Kahney gushes about the concept of "two big iPod Touches joined by a hinge" ala the OLPC v2 concept by designer Yves Behar (pictured) which he blogged about on Cult of Mac.
The term "brick" was mentioned in a 9-to-5 Mac rumor piece on 10 September 2008 when their source said that the MacBook update is "all about the Brick." I take that to mean that additional features will be crammed into Apple's ever-shrinking AC adapter (a.k.a. the brick). It wouldn't be that hard to build an Airport Express into "the brick" combining two road warrior favorites into one uber-accessory.
Oh, that OLPC v2 concept is pretty sweet too.
