Unfortunately I seem to have made it through the part of recovering where I sleep all the time and gotten to the part where I’m awake but not able to do stuff. I think I liked the part where I was asleep better. I was slightly less aware of what I was missing before. Fortunately the blog client on the N800 works well for when I can’t keep myself upright any more.
The IM integration is pretty great, it’s mainly what got me started using the device again. And for email and browsing it certainly rocks. Russ and I had a voice chat between two devices and that worked out much better than I expected it to. Still I can’t help but think that there’s some usage that I’m missing still that would make the device killer. Maybe it’s cause I’m a geek, but I end up thinking about things like a personal dashboard or client for the IM bots that cranks up the verbosity and provides a nice interface for digesting the streams. I thought personal agents were supposed to be mainstream by now, why do I have to keep writing my own stuff?
