Greg Harper, co-founder of an invitation-only gear-inventors' soiree called Gadgetoff, had more buried in his suit than any man should including an audio recording system, a Wi-fi camera, a high-definition camcorder, a solar-powered portable Internet connection, a tiny Internet tablet, and a terabyte worth media hard-drive.

Now imagine how impressive that would have been if those capabilities had been all rolled into one device--not far off!

A dinged metal pen in my back pocket and an old corkscrew in my left jacket pocket.

Two friends who haven't seen each other for a long time, meet. One starts bragging: "check my watch, it can show time in 20 cities, it shows temperature, air pressure, earth coordinates, it can be operated by voice, it speaks time back, its backlight has 12 different colors... and it is so small and weighs almost nothing!" -- "Whoa, this is cool watch. What about these heavy suitcases you carry?" -- "These are the batteries".

Old joke, bad storyteller, but still so true.
