Yeah but in the November 20, 1998 issue of SmartReseller David Gerrold writes an article about Teleportation Now Technology (TNT for short) that describes being able to energize your body molecules and transport yourself to the other side of the Earth in seconds. What about that? smiling smiley

It may be an interesting comment, but I had a palm pilot first in 1997 (and that was not the first generation) and so these ideas were well known and often discussed in the palm pilot community, including the timeline to add all of those features into a convergence device in the "future".
