    Mike,Brian and Darren – this was a wonderful podcast.
    Mike showed restraint not calling it the maxi-pad I must say.

    I can just imagine that 1 infinite loop is having a lot of the similar discussions about product positioning. On Royal Caribbean ships, you might be interested to know, there are 3’X2′ size screens that you touch for menus, what’s on and navigation (how to get from you are here to there) – and they look like a super duper iPad. (this you tube demos it Chase Bank has a “bigger than iPad ” pro in some of their branches for atm transactions as well: So, I think this sort of thing will catch on but I predict they will make an even larger version and have takers …eventually!

    Happy New Year and I look forward to more
