Default We all have hand links!

I'm sure I'm not the first person to notice this, but as I was in the store today and looking something up on my phone, I thought... "I feel like Al using a handlink!" The handlink was a remote connection to a supercomputer, while our phones are remote connections to a global network of computers. So 1999 technology looks pretty feeble when you think about it

Now I just want to buy a smartphone that looks like the gummy bear handlink :P

For sure! I'd been thinking about this a lot last year, and wound up developing an app along those lines.
