Thanks for the plug, Andrew. You have put a lot of thought into the Savi and it's a very interesting concept for an OS. Do you think that putting so much application type functionality directly into the OS will end up limiting its capability in the long run? I'm just trying to get my head around where you want to take Savi.

I'm putting up a post on my blog directing people to your blog as it's an interesting concept that deserves commentary from potential users.

Andrew, you should enable Trackbacks in your blog so others (me too) can Trackback to your blog. It will drive traffic to your site.

When I started thinking about this, I imagined that the very small percentage of people who never interact with computers probably have totally different expectations about what a computer should deliver. Perhaps they imagine that the device itself performs the work, rather than applications as such. So I was imagining folding everything new into the existing environment. A side effect of that being that new features would work everywhere; someone writes a spell checker and now everything can be spell checked.

But how do I dial a new number -- one that isn't already linked to a contact, and how do I start a fresh spreadsheet, or play a game? Mmm. Maybe I'll concede and allow some stand alone widgets on the lower right hot corner...

Thanks for the tip about Trackbacks. I'm new to blogging and this provider tells me they don't support them. I'll do some more research.
