Yes but what would be better is bluetooth keyboard and mouse! Cory "For all the ways in which technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three." --Alice Kuhn On 05/07/2011 09:25 AM, Kory Pounds wrote:
Having a working "mini" PC on a small piece of hardware like that has a lot of potential. All you need is to output the graphics to a monitor of some sort (HDMI) and input your keyboard/mouse (USB), just like it talks about. Of course for the time being we would be limited in the total scope of things compared to a fully-equipped desktop or laptop PC, but it definitely still has advantages to it (and the capabilities will expand in time as development increases). I see a lot of security in confidential work in something like this. How does everyone else see it?
