Congratulations to Qualcomm, Lenovo and Adobe! I look forward to get the final details on the Lenovo smartbook and to place my order so I can carry one around and gift it to my "generation y" kids. In addition, with ATT, I will not even have to change carriers!

After missing grabbing the golden computing ring with PowerPC and Mac-clones, Bob is glad to have a front row seat in what is shaping up as the first major change in the computing industry in 30 yrs.
