“And getting back to your original time frame (within 10 years), there will be by then just a single technology. New technology which reconfigures pixels to greatly reduce the size/weight of displays is well advanced, and soon every cell “phone” will be a fully functional phone/TV, with clear, crisp movie quality images.”

- Yes, a lot of people think so.

I guess PC technology will become more and more integrated with TV technology (and cell phone technology).

Whatever the technology behind it all will be and whatever software will be used, it’s likely we won’t have a PC AND a Plasma/LCD TV, we’ll probably just have multipurpose ‘screens’ so to say and key boards we move around (or, at least, keyboards, printers etc will all be based on wireless technology and hopefully, all units will be more compatible with eachother than they are today).
But what about the hard drive? Will it be integrated with our ‘multipurpose screens’ or a separate unit?

“I thought you (swedes) did get a few things right in the 40s and 50s.”

- Yes, but perhaps we should have joined the NATO?

Regards.

Don't you need an army for that? Check out this tough överfurir.

Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against Sweden.I drove (used) Volvos for years, have seen most of Ingmar Bergman's films, and would have one of these if I could afford it. But joining NATO after WWII is a bit of a stretch, and touting the internet as intelligent and TV as stupid is just, well, stupid. Cheerio.
