It could happen.

1984 - Motorola DynaTAC 8000X - 28.00 oz -   10 hours standby -  30 minutes talk.
2010 - Motorola Droid 2 -  6.00 oz -  314 hours standby - 576 minutes talk.

.. interpolating the same progress made from 1984-2010, into the future.

2036 - Motorola Watch/Phone   -  1.28 oz - 1.12 years standby - 184 hours talk.

The Casio G'zOne phone proved a waterproof cell phone could be made.
Incorporating that engineering into a wrist-watch format means it could be
worn while swimming, dropped, stepped on, etc. without any damamge.

Today: Why wear a watch when your cell phone can display the time?
Future: Why carry a cell phone when your watch can make/receive calls, text, update your Facebook/Twitter pages,
 display your position on topo maps, search for nearest ice cream stand, browse the B.T. wiki, play music and videos, etc.?

Thanks for the picture. We're getting so close.
In 1964 he was upgraded from a 2-way wrist radio to a 2-way wrist TV.
With Facetime on an iPhone, the only thing missing is a wristband, 50% size reduction and 4G LTE support.

You can have your microscreens.  My 50+ year old eyes need something a little bigger.  I still like printed maps, myself.  Never had the battery die on a piece of paper.  But I'm mostly a Luddite at heart! Smiley

A Luddite at heart? So your user name should be BTA Keeg?  Grin

<humor>
Fun with paper maps ..
- I keep putting my fingers on them and spreading them apart .. but they don't zoom in and show more detail.
- I turn them around and give them a clear view of the sky .. but they won't show my current location.
- I tap on points of interest, but nothing happens.
</humor>

Periodically I check to see if any new changes have been posted to the wiki.
Appears there wasn't any pent up demand to start posting updates.
Maybe when the snow starts falling again, people will have more free time?  Smiley

Any progress on tightening access and deleting all the "crap" that is being posted?

Unfortunately, no.  Right now, preparing for sales at the NCTA conference, working on several budget categories, and SpringFest 2012 planning are sucking down a good chunk of my BTA time.  Wiki seems to be one of those things that seems like a great idea, but takes a lot more work to get started than many people realized.
