I agree with him. Though I love technology (I do work in an IT department for a state gov). I do not feel the need to go out and buy the newest phone..... except maybe the android......but like the others I do not have funds for that. I do have a laptop though and would bring that to any games I ran...... if I had time to run them...... but you get the picture.

A plea from a luddite non-tecchie:
If NBOS goes off on a tangent, doing stuff for mobile 'phones and their more recent spin-offs, please will they not forget those of us who have problems with even the oldest mobile technology and anyway can't afford 200 every time some manufacturer decides they want to cream off some more profit from the unsuspecting public (how much longer are they going to be unsuspecting?). By all means make the odd trip down these side alleys but bear in mind there are those of us who can't afford and may have no wish to embrace each new electronic gadget as it appears. Not all of us have unlimited funds or run IT departments in major commercial operations so don't always have the need or knowledge to utilise them J

I have two things I'd like to see:
A: A way of saving my NBOS material into a .pdf so that it can be run with full features but not modified. This means: I can save it to a thumb drive or the memory card of my smart phone and run it on a machine at my FLGS or a friends place.
B: maybe it is time to think about apps for smart phones and for the new ipad. however, i must beg, pretty please with sugar and chocolate:
Not everyone has apple stuff. Please look at blackberry (my brand) android or the others.
Corollary: is there a good die-roll program/app for a blackberry?
