Solution: Stay in the shower until your skin falls off. It's pleasant, if a little freaky.

Yay, my glowing pink skin turned to a tan today, rather than peeling and being generally painful. I have a bit of a bandana and thong (as in the shoes) tan, but at least I got rid of my t-shirt tan.

Also, I learnt not to walk 1 km in a pair of $12 boardshorts.

The issue then is they fight over position. There really is no way to win.

Although, at least then you can always spot the clever ones. They're the ones who can properly estimate how many items of clothing you're wearing on a given day and secure the "Brass Ring" spot in line such that they get to tear off an item of clothing and the person behind them does not.

And thankfully, I'm an engineer, not a physicist. We simply treat two of the bodies like a black box and worry about the resulting system's interactions with the third body.

The black box model is something engineers do to handle complex interactions the details of which aren't necessary for whatever we're trying to solve for, illustrate, or demonstrate. We wrap up a complex series of interactions, reactions, equations, etc in a "black box" the inner workings of which are irrelevant. All that matters is how the parts of the system you care about interact with this black box.

In the threesome analogy, your two partners form a black box which you (the remaining part of the system) interact with.

The key to the many-body problem is to have so many bodies you can treat it as a fluid (you don't want to go for gas-approximations, as they usually require non-interaction, which kinda kills the fun). Attractive forces will also be negligible for the very many bodies scenario, as you'll get attraction screening (that is, on average, the attraction of people around you will pull in so many directions they cancel out). Fluids are no problem for a physicist. You treat the Navier–Stokes equations as a generalization of the Kama Sutra to the very large N regime.

The funny thing is that while it's often very condescending (see: The Avatar "WITH MY GIRLFRIEND" comic), they frequently don't get the joke or understand the mechanics involved.

The (edit: original) Laptops/Dysentery/Talking to someone on the toilet comic is a great example. Their explanation for that one violated the fundamental rules of what a 2D line graph is. I rather loathe the site and its writers.

The slippery bastards edited their fallacious summary at some point.

The real hook is the contract-free, unlimited data plan it comes with for $30 a month. Other than that it's a late entry in the dying netbook niche. The tablet form factor doesn't change it's target market as that's purely a function of portability, price, and purpose.

That being said, it's an Apple product. They could carve the Apple logo into bricks and sell them at $199 a pop if they wanted to.

Well I actually think netbooks are going to be more popular once google gets their netbook OS off the ground. Should be pretty nifty, and should satisfy people looking for a cheap, reliable, quick computer to use for just the internet and a few basic applications.

This iPad however, doesn't really seem to do anything useful that another product doesn't already do, and better. It's kind of a weird halfway between phones and laptops that i don't think anyone has been missing. The only reasonable use I can see for it is as a more powerful E-Reader, but I never really payed much attention to those in the first place.

That's why the market isn't dead. But it certainly is dying.

As laptop prices continue to drop there's very little reason to have a 7 to 11" machine when it isn't significantly more difficult to carry around a far more powerful 15" that costs about the same. Meanwhile on the budget end of things phone performance is closing the gap from the other end, offering the same functionality for the same price but in a far more portable package.

Netbooks exist in the gap between these two devices and that gap is shrinking every.single.day.

Virtually the same argument applies to netbooks vs WinMo and Android phones.

The common thinking around the office is that in the not too distant future:

Anyone who would use a tablet as their primary device would be better served by a laptop.

Anyone who would use a tablet as their mobile device would be better served by a smartphone.

I happen to quite like netbooks, as I value long battery life, portability, and a reasonable sized keyboard highly, but don't need excessive computing power on the go.

Of course, I've been buying similar sized products since before netbooks existed, and the sales figures of those sub notebooks showed that the people who like the form factor of netbooks are much fewer in number then those who value the price.

Seems to me there that you're trying to make a case against tablets not netbooks, which are just a replacement for laptops. Granted, like you said, it's not often a great deal compared to a normal laptop, but i know people who have both and like netbooks fine. Like I was saying, once google gets their netbook out the door and speed increases and prices drop I think they'll be more viable instead of a more expensive laptop for many people.

Also, FT: My fucking 1.5 TB hard drive I just bought 2 months ago is going to die. I can hear it clicking and wheezing away more and more. I have all the vital stuff backed up, but i've got more movies and music then will fit on my external/other drives, so i'll probably end up losing some stuff I wanted to keep.
