the article did not mention "PDA" one time.....

The computer industry's most famous garage tinkerer said he believes the time is right to develop a new class of consumer electronics to take advantage of advances in satellite tracking, wireless networks and more powerful computer chips.

``Recent advances in global positioning software (GPS) systems and antenna technology coupled with the declining cost of processing power and two-way networking make the possibilities for new devices and services really exciting,'' Wozniak said in a statement.

So is the Woz still on Danger's board?
I really like the idea of what Danger is doing, and like to rub it in the face of every "I want a PDA" screaming zealot. I haven't heard if the Danger hiptop has been adopted by any of the wireless companies yet, but unlike a PDA, I will probably buy a hiptop to replace my current cellphone.
