The Ultimate Hand Held Device
Is it me or what? I don’t get it. Maybe people who own an iPod can answer these questions. Do you really intend to store 15,000 songs on your iPod? How long will it take to compile this many number of songs? Has anyone really taken the time to store 25,000 photos on their iPod? When you store photos, what do you do with them? With songs, at least you can listen to them all day. But with photos, do you plan to look at them all day too?
I think the iPod is but a fad or more appropriately a status symbol among the well-to-do. It's main function as an MP3 player will be shortlived. One could enjoy hours of listening to it, but I bet you, after a few weeks of listening to the same collection of songs, you’ld want throw up.
The other problem I have with an iPod or similar device is that it’s an extra thing you carry with you. If you already have a cell phone with you, carrying another small device, no matter how small makes it one too many.
Dapat pagsamasamahin na lang nila lahat ng small hand-held devices into one. Oo nga meron na ngayon cell phone with MP3 playback capability, but I think that is not enough. Ang gusto ko gumawa sila ng hand-held device that integrates at least the following everyday-used devices :
Cell phone/video phone
USB file transfer device for your PC
Walkie-talkie (nice to have, but can be optional)
TV and Video player – a bigger screen will allow one to watch TV programs or play movies. Another optional feature. Baka maging masyadong mahal, kasi lalagyan pa ng TV tuner. But if the device already has a color screen, I can’t see why it can’t easily be used to play video clips or movies. Using ordinary RCA cables you can then connect it to a regular TV or computer to watch video.
Universal remote control for your TV/DVD/VCR/Stereo. Pwede na rin optional. Naisip ko lang kasi parating nagtatago ang remote namin.
I’m sure integrating the above devices into one is very possible. I even think it’s quite easy. It’ll be like a Swiss army knife for cell phones. Ano kayang itatawag? Swiss-Army phone? No, I have a better suggestion. Perhaps "MMP" as in Multi-Media Phone (hindi metro manila police). Or simply “The Phone” (because it will be the ultimate phone of all phones).
