I was recently waxing on the reality of getting a netbook versus a cell phone and BAM. AT&T decides to go in this direction. I think this is a great idea and could easily lead it's way into a full blown $500-$750 laptop that is also connected to a wireless plan.
A few years ago it was stated that computer culture used to be more about accessories, printers and software. Now it's about the computer as a peripheral to the web.
I slowly have made this transition as well. As jugglemail.com is a web app it's important that I have access 24/7. I open the following web apps so I can work virtually.
- myspace (Not as often because it still slows my system down.)
- linked (Working on getting more involved here.)
With the edition of google docs I can do a lot of rough drafting and basic spreasheet work there as well.
There is a work mode that I can go into now that is essentially virtual and all online.
Congratulations to AT&T for making a strong tactical move that is forward thinking.
