To obtain the horsepower you are speaking of, more batteries might have to
be added, and that would at least mean more weight. It's okay to dream.

I think the problem with this discussion is that those that are wanting additional functionality are fully aware of the fact that basically, it is a new BookPort that is being envisioned, and not the current device. Folks that like the device the way it is are going to be fine, because it would be a totally new model. With regard to technology, the old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" can't apply. If it did, we would still be back in the dark ages.
I also agree that the current BookPort is absolutely wonderful. However, I can easily envision a new model with more horse power, and the ability to do just about everything I have seen mentioned here.
I also think that one shouldn't assume that you have to sacrifice size and weight to gain functionality. With today's technology, I don't believe one has to make that sacrifice. Just my 2 cents worth of course.

Yucky. I'd much rather keep doubletalk. Eloquence isn't. I'll use it if it is the easiest to get to, but if I'd have to pay more for it I'd rather use doubletalk.
