I am not sure if anyone has seen this but a company called Tiqit (a few stanford gurus) is in the pre production stages of selling a PDA sized PC which can run basically any flavor of Windoz or Linux. This is from the same guys who built the worlds smallest webserver that has been running at stanford for the past three years and is only 1 square inch. Will this spell the death of PDA's to be replaced by real PC's?

forgot the url

Wow, the Oqo is one of the coolest things I've seen. That's a regular VGA port plugged into the side. Put a keyboard and a full-size screen on it, it's ready to rock as a desktop machine. Put a membrane keyboard on your body and eyeglass display and you have a body computer. I can see laptops just becoming shells that one of these slips into to provide keyboard and screen. The possibilities are endless.

I'd really like to see one.

One of these reasonably priced is the death of Palm.
