But ...they DO sit on top of your lap!

A gathering of local bloggers is a special time to learn and share. Today, at a downtown meet up of some online buddies, I was reminded that laptops are no longer called that.

For some reason they now are called "notebooks." ??

I don't have a, I mean, notebook and am quite happy with my 4-year old PC but I remember when they went by the previous - and very obvious - name.

Were there incidents of heat generated causing laps to catch fire? Did lawyers get involved? A notebook brings to mind a stubby pencil and a yellow pad with the wide line spacing. A friendly image and non-threatening. Well, reporters carry notebooks too.

Joan posted pictures she took this morning of us sipping African coffee at Kudu and I wanted to add one that included her. Most photographers remain behind the camera and we miss seeing their face. Here's L-R: Xark, Braintube and Walk This Way.

Pull the photo up on your lapbook.

You got me! We all had some gadget - photo or electronic. I really want to see the film you talk about. We should have the next get together where we can play a VHS tape.

I had no idea that "laptop" had fallen out of favor. I'll stubbornly stick to the past if you will!

Laptop, laptop, laptop.

Sounds fair to me Patrick. And who ever heard of "notebook dancing?"

Hey Paul, great idea and plans are to meet "on a regular basis" the LAST Friday of the month at 6pm in West Ashley at Gene's Hofbrau in Archdale on Highway 17.

I posted a blog about the first one last Friday. Hope to see you there Feb 29? [Leap Year] See Heather for more details.
