I'm a bit underwhelmed (I expected a MacBook tablet, and now I'm
disappointed). The Apple TV is apparently not a cheaper Mac mini,
and I still haven't gotten one (the G4 iBook still suffices for
my needs). Don't see much point in the iPhone, too, I already got
a smartphone with paired Bluetooth GPS and a headset, a 1.3 MPixel cam 
and 1 GByte of flash, which does pretty much all this thing does,
albeit with more clunk and way less glitz.

A detachable hires eyepiece and enough accelerometers for dead reckoning
(I'd settle for a Bluetooth GPS velcroed to the hat) as well as a Twiddler 
interface with some 8-10 h runtime would be exciting.
