The cyborg future is here

[T]he line between where my memory leaves off and Google picks up is getting blurrier by the second. Often when I'm talking on the phone, I hit Wikipedia and search engines to explore the subject at hand, harnessing the results to buttress my arguments.

My point is that the cyborg future is here. Almost without noticing it, we've outsourced important peripheral brain functions to the silicon around us.|Your Outboard Brain Knows All - Wired|
I don't think the cyborg future will have arrived until I have a subdermal computer implanted in my body, so that I'm never out of contact with the Net.

My cell phone/PDA is certainly a wearable computer, but it's clunky and strikes me as soooo 20th century.

And resistance is futile.

Thanks to Joe Hodnicki for the link.

The iPhone is pretty slick. But in a couple years it will seem like old soviet hardware.
