Thanks Lynn!  you've pretty certainly discovered the answer to the mystery
of the Humanware "teaser" ads many of us have been receiving via email
lately.  

these ads, for those who haven't seen them, have you guessing as to what the
next humanware product to be released is going to do; they hint only that
it's very small.

the article Lynn uncovered is Intel announcing a new product, sold through
humanware, which is a hand-held OCR much like the KNFB reader, but
deliberately limited in technical capabilities so that no third party can
enhance it to do anything else.  it's planned to sell for $1500, because
Intel is classing it as a medical device, which means insurance companies
will pay for it, since it compensates for a specific loss of function, and
is not a general purpose computer.
