    I basically have a 'pulled' neck muscle. I feel like a vice is clamped around one side of my neck. It causes a pain down my left arm and can even cause numbness in my hand. Right now however it's doing a great job of making it difficult to move my neck and arm.
    Have you tried having it massaged? Works all the time for me.

    Getting old sucks. All I did was buy a new pillow...

    Yeah, I'm going to see about going to a physio or getting something done. The pain is pretty bad.

    It's how they say: Never change a running system. Well, it's how they said in 1995 before internet was connected to everything.

    I slept terribly too, and my knee hurt the entire night, however the pain isn't that bad, just very uncomfortable. Also I'm afraid I'll have to have an operation as it just isn't really getting better.

    That doesn't sound at all pleasant.

    No it's not. It's making it hard to concentrate. Waking up at 2:30am with my arm throbbing and my neck aching didn't help. I would say it's worse than when I originally did it back in 2010 but I'd probably be lying.

    I should probably get this: Panasonic's 20-inch 4K 'tablet' comes to the US in January for $6,000

    Great for watching movies while traveling, and reading papers will be an awesome experience. It also has the power to be a laptop replacement.

    6000 $ is a little over my budget though... and I'd have to buy a new bag.

    Maybe a bit more than a bag, a better option would be a custom built Otterbox case that most likely costs about as much as the tablet itself! :P

    I'm not completely disabled. :P I'm doing better now the pain killers are kicking in. It's only ibuprofen but I took two 200mg. :) I'll be taking more at lunch and probably some more at dinner. It's completely inflamed so need to do something. Moving actually helps more than just laying about. I've been stretching it out. Still, it's pretty sore. :/

    Some people's home TVs are smaller than that. :P That's like a portable TV rather than a tablet.

    $6000 USD = 4500 EUR, meh. No thanks. I can get a laptop, tablet and phone combined for cheaper.

    Had a few people say they really want one but think most people are put off by the prices. Even with a cheap low spec PC and a touchscreen monitor it would cost close to 1K just for the parts. That's without adding in time for me to design it and build it. Even a basic unit would cost 1500 and that's with me hardly making any money on it. People just don't seem to want to spend the money. It has however given me time to come up with a few more designs so I can showcase what can be done if it comes to it.

    IMO, Martin's table should've been what Microsoft did from the beginning with Microsoft PixelSense.

    Wait for Win8, produce PixelSense hardware, put it on Kiosk Mode, voila! Perfection for Table Computing hardware.

    PixelSense used to be named Surface, by the way.

    I remember my friend sending me a link to a video about that a few years back. I had wondered what happened to it. Was an interesting concept. I think HP was working on something like that at one point as well. More to do with media than anything else.

    I could imagine what happened when tablet computing rose to prominence.

    *At Redmond*
    "Sir, the iPad is a really successful product. It's usual for Apple, but what about us? Surely, we could come up with a competitor..."
    "Don't we have some table computers somewhere?"
    "Sir, those are tables, not tablets."
    "I don't care, just reuse the brand, and add a 't' to the product description."
    "What'll happen to the current Surface project?"
    "I don't know, rename it to something else, I guess..."

    And so, the Microsoft Surface Tablet was born.

    Aside from the 'sir' bit it could have been something like that but I highly doubt it. :P

    Wasn't Surface after the use for tables used for this 3-screens idea that never went anywhere? Then they recycled it again for the tablets?

    I can't find anything about it though, maybe I'm wrong.

    I probably got that wrong:

    On June 18, 2012, a Microsoft tablet of the same name was unveiled, and Surface was rebranded as PixelSense as a result.
    But there was this multiple screen idea once. I just don't remember what it was called...
