Note to self: quote to remember: "In the product design documentary, Objectified, Dan Formosa of Smart Design noted that "what we need to do to design is to look at the extremes. The middle will take care of itself.""

(Alas, it is connected to a now out-of-date article on the prevalence of netbooks. Although something designed even more extremely, the tablet, supplanted it.)

This is actually pretty fascinating, and I can see how the realization that we "don't need all that stuff" a laptop does led on further from netbook to tablet.

And then there's rumor of this Apple "smartwatch"...
