I was watching the Stargate Atlantis episode “The Shrine” when I saw a familiar sight near the end. The Ancients’ life signs detector, shown on the right, looked surprisingly like my iPAQ 5550 (left).
So I have discovered irrefutable proof that HP’s device (from five years ago, mind you) is based on highly-advanced Alteran technology. How many other PDAs can make that claim?
Now if they’d only incorporate a personal shield into a new PDA, that would make adding GPS or an FM radio look primitive.
