1996: No one wants to type on the tiny keyboards on Windows CE Handheld PCs.
1997: Everyone wants a tiny keyboard (RIM).
2002: Everyone wants a smartphone with an operating system and user-installable applications.
2004: Everybody wants a phone and no one wants a PDA.
2007-2008: Apple decided that a physical QWERTY keyboard really wasn't needed after all. They also decided that user installable applications were not important (as of 2007).
Todd goes on to say he wants to be connected but not all the time - so instead he's got an Apple iPod touch, which allows him to browse the Internet and check his e-mail when he wants, and not when things are pushed.
Come to think of it, the Apple iPod touch is the same old PDA back in action...
