The phenomenon of portability

Since an Android smart phone entered my picture, I've generally noticed a few things.


  1. I still hate talking on the phone.
  2. When I'm home, it's often more handy for e-mail and facebook than alt tabbing to chrome just to do a ^T{start typing url}^M and read/enter something. It's just so portable.
  3. Having next to no signal in my office rocks.
  4. Access to a clock, calendar, and a calculator without having to ^Zcal^M and the like, is great.
  5. FBReader and Project Gutenberg make a great pair.
  6. At least 17 years later, I still hate earbuds.

Hmm, I wonder if I could rig a desktop version of fbreader to share the same book/page information as my phone, by way of Dropboxes mobile client.
