Good point, I think I am with you there and am finding this out by having too many devices! I have both an iPad and a smartphone, and I find I use my smartphone much more and my iPad hardly at all, since I can do mostly the same things with my smartphone anyway. All in one is probably the best way to go, and the smaller and more flexible, the better.

Elizebeth, I would like to prefer an All – in – one device, which is more compactable and handy. Such all in one device can avoid the usage of many independent devices for each functionality.

Ann, now we have both the technologies, for flexible devices (flexible battery, screen etc) and tiny devices (small and wearable). So what I meant is which one is preferable for human advancement.

Almost there.

Now make the batttery recharge when you bend it.

The uses would be unlimited.

Mydesign, I'm not sure what you mean. Can you clarify?

Yes, Mydesign, that is always the question--whether we NEED any of these new-fangled devices. Well, as someone of the "less is more" persuasion, I would say we don't really NEED many things, especially new gadgets that will probably be quite expensive and end up in a pile with all the other gadgets we have. But will we want them and buy them? Probably. And are they cool and interesting to think about as we marvel over the cleverless of the design and the people working these devices? Most definitely.

"I think that's a brilliant idea. I've heard about flexible signage and using flexible solar panels on windows, and now we have flexible batteries, but combining them all together into a flexible, foldable, stowable tent sounds great."

Ann, great idea. But I think humans won't be that much flexible because of strong backbone (grin). Now the question is whether we need a flexible device or tiny, hand devices?

Elizabeth, yes you are right. Now the question is when we can expect it or in reality. I think some of the latest offerings like thin client laptops can pave the way for that.

Mydesign, I agree about reliability and durability: All products should have these characteristics and not be throwaway.

Watashi, I think that's a brilliant idea. I've heard about flexible signage and using flexible solar panels on windows, and now we have flexible batteries, but combining them all together into a flexible, foldable, stowable tent sounds great.
