indeed ... but ... when you need to write you ideas to this sistem still you need a keyboard, or some form of it with things to press, to touch, etc .... no voice recognition ... is only a bigger screen, using more memory and a lot more cpu power ... and touchscreen technology is already mature ... what i want is a real speech recognition sistem ... and a perfect ocr system ... and of course holographic projection ... what i see here is some form of matrix reloaded ... not enough ... not for me ...

you don't make so much money selling open source software!
You make MORE money USING it, just like google!

Still very impressive, though. And if you watch carefully you'll see that one of the guys uses an on-screen 'keyboard' to type a search query for "Gaudi" (good taste, BTW).

Thanks for posting, Unobtanium.
