Gene Marks is baffled by a number of things in modern life:
For starters, netbooks are just too small. The most popular brands have keyboards that are at least 10% smaller than laptop keyboards, which aren't so big to begin with. Screen sizes of the most common devices are usually around 10 inches, too. This is a problem for Bob's company. It's one thing for road warriors to fumble with a BlackBerry between meetings and while waiting for planes. But getting a bunch of aging sales guys with thick fingers and failing eyesight to squint for hours on end into a tiny screen while tapping on a keyboard made for a kid simply "ain't gonna happen," Bob says.
My admittedly non-techie question: Does he miss the main virtue of netbooks?
