I was just looking at some of the specs and it seems like its a $400 laptop with a $250 price point. I wonder how the OS is and if its portable enough to carry with you wherever you go.

I'm wondering what it can do that my phone can't. I'm in the market for a new laptop, and this might be an option.

But yeah, I thought it was funny when I heard it. But I guess at some point the Romans were stunned when their numerals fell out of favor.

Yeah. Was never a fan of cursive, but seemed odd. Like when finding out my son needed graph paper to do simple math problems in elementary school. I understand the world changes, but when you learn of the change without any context as to why it can be a bit surprising.

Yeah, I was surprised by the cursive thing as well, though I personally print any time I have to write (which isn't much).

Do they still teach how to READ cursive? And are people starting to "sign" in print these days, or do you learn how to sign your name in cursive, but nothing else?

That was my point when I found out, I'm not sure how they handle it. I simple Google search returns nothing obvious.

We don't teach much handwriting and cursive anymore. The thought is more is done on the computer-and voice recognition is getting rid of keyboarding.

Don't get me started on trying to teach kids how to read an analog clock.

But in my room, there is a sign over the clock.

Time will pass-Will you?
