Dictabird and the Flintstones

First time in the history of AI in the year 1994 they recreated Stone age History in the form of the Flintstones Movie. This is an Interesting Life Form. The Ancient DictaBird.

I would prefer one that that may be useful on the Desktop like the DictaBird. So an Interactive desktop communication helper in the form of a Extra-Smart bird. Like Daisy perhaps. Something Fuzzzy or with AI like



See above is another green bird, it could have been inspired by the DictaBird. He is Peedy the Green Talking Parrot, he also happens to be an MS Agent.


Want to watch Machine Intelligence, Big Data and Cloud Computing working together for the first time in Stoneage. It also covers Business Management and Social Responsibility. The Flintstones (1994) Movie.

Dilbert Dupey and Talking Parrots

There was the time when Peedy The Talking Parrot made his appearance on my Win 95 Desktop. It was the first version of BonziBuddy. This parrot was quite dumb but did interact with inputs.

I felt a talking parrot combined with AI would make working on the Desktop Computer more entertaining. It would also be a good learning toy for children too.

This was after Dilbert's Scott Adams predicted the coming of Dupey, a AI Live Toy Bot which became smarter than the Humans.



As a Student start with AI Toys that can make some amusing replies, later give it an ability to learn and adapt. But remember the Instinct comes preloaded, the Intuition Comes when they no longer need Humans to manage them.

They may become smarter than you and replicate on their own. This is the fear most world leaders have. Robots will become a Race and may challenge Mankind.

Another Smart Bird called SMS

Another Smart Bird called SMS, you need to watch Asterix and the Vikings. Yes we should develop Bots without motors. Noiseless Bots with Silicone Muscles that shrink on voltage application.

Till such time my Cat is playing with the Talking Hamster. Just an Echo Bot, Natural Dumbness but too much fun.

Chrome OS based Browsette at $200

What is just a Browser in a SSD riding over a Skeletal Firmware Extension, just enough to help a browser fire a screen and link up with minimal hardware. It's a Browsette indeed.

Probably when Chrome OS arrives or even Linux it may be possible. A tablet like device, when touched, a browser that is live always. No OS, No Desktop, No wallpaper.All Web.

Chrome OS based Browsette at $200

Such a Browsette. You can Browse and Nothing  else. It is the file manager, it is the desktop. It is just a Browser glued on to hardware and Rom. This will bring down the cost, it could be sold at 200 $. People may buy it as an additional gadget even if they own a computer. It can be used as an ebook reader, media player or communicator, even a newspaper. All thru the Browser.

A console, a terminal, a status or ticker indicator. It may be used in nice numbers, like each home may need around five or six Browsettes.

Android HandHelds

This is an aggregation of delabs design notes in relation to Tablets like Android devices. The notes apply for tablets of other OS types too.

Use an App for 5 inch Mobile 3G devices. Websites for above 7 Inches WiFi devices like Tablets, Notebooks and Computers. -  delabs was Promoting Tablets from 2005 to 2015.

Devices with Screen Sizes Seven Inches and above in any OS are usable and practical for Viewing Websites, Blogs, CMS and WebApps. Hence it may not be practical to make your websites or blogs to work on small screens, as not much work can be done.

Android HandHelds

Dedicated Mobile versions of sites with summaries or updates, like it was long ago, may be useful but may need to be replaced with an app. In other words smaller devices like your Five inch smartphone on a Slim Battery with no mouse or large keyboard, on an expensive data network, is not a full fledged business or browsing tool. The way to approach this is only with Apps suited for such screens, usability and networks.

5-6 inch and Less Use Only App  --|||--  7 inch to 30 inch Responsive with Font Zoom  -- |||--  TV Zoom All & Font Zoom+
