This post will have very little to do with the iPad. I can’t get one in Sing yet and I will be waiting till I can. If you want to read more about the iPad check out this article from GigaOM. I think it is a good take on how the iPad will change computing – simple as that.
Was hanging with some friends last night chilling, talking and socializing – something people just don’t do enough of these days. Hardly any of us was checking our phones, blackberries or devices of taste. We are all in tech but I think we choose to turn it off when it makes sense so. Usually that is never enough but such is life in this fast paced world.
I am always interested in vintage stuff and offline experiences. Motorcycles are a good example of that for me – I gear up, go on a long ride and just unhook from the wired world. I was strolling through my FT Weekend yesterday and came across this article about a guy reviving the Brough Superior motorcycle. For those who may not know what this bike is – might try watching Lawrence of Arabia – this is the bike the real T.E. Lawrence rode.
Well it seems a team of folks are recreating Brough Superior bikes to their original look and feel but with new technology. They are touring with some show bikes and these things look amazing. I could imagine that the coolest adventure in the world would be to buy one and go around the world. Heaven on earth for me.
Instead I will go back to tech product design, daydreaming about my BMW in Bangkok and be happy to be alive.
