Hardware, Embedded Systems Even though CES hasn't even officially started yet, the gadget news is already coming in at a very steady stream. We can't report on all of them, obviously, but we can make a selection of the most interesting ones we've seen so far.

I'm not sure what you mean. I would gladly buy one, and/or would have bought one- if one was on market. As of now, they're seemingly turning in to hopes, and maybe later, a "could've been".

I remember a friend speaking about Linux "I don't use Linux, but a like that Linux exist". And after your comment I thought why many people expect a alternative to x86, but all of they when buy a new computer get another x86. Practical reasons I suppose. So "I don't use ARM, but a like that ARM netbooks exist".

Just a reflection, not accusing you.

Oh no problem, I knew you weren't accusing, I was just genuinely confused :-) As you can see by name, it happens quite often. I think it's hard to market alternatives, so I can understand the reluctant push to market. To me it's just if you're going to go through the R&D, prototypes, and promotion, you might as well try your luck on the market ;)
