US News interviews Hawkins

Wed Jan 17, 2001 - 2:07 PM EST - By James Hromadka

Jeff HawkinsU.S. News and World Report has a nice interview with Jeff Hawkins on the importance of keeping things simple in technology. Here's a Hawkins quote from the interview regarding the VisorPhone:
You can do all that Internet stuff with it, but we don't focus on that. We don't promote it. I can use my VisorPhone with a Web browser. I have a Visor Prism with a nice color display. I can dial into an ISP and bring up the browser and surf the Web. It works just fine. But I wouldn't say it's ready for consumer prime time. I had to get an ISP and load the software and put up with various little technical things to make it work. And then the connection is slow.
