Don't Touches have BlueCheeseTooth?
Why is Bluetooth called that? It's not blue and it's not a tooth
Why are laptops called laptops? they don't need to be on laps
And why are they also called notebooks? They're not made from paper
And why are mice called that? they're not rodents
LEAVE IT ALONE
Gahhh! To me a Notebook is like a tiny IBM with a atom processor. A LAPTOP is a computer with a processor and dedicated video card that can keep up with some serious Desktops!
I was under the impression that laptop was the former name of a notebook due to the word laptop meaning you can use it on your lap, which causes overheating and some serious burns, notebook however, doesn't imply this and you are meant to use it on a flat surface.
hey we could call a smartphone a stupidphone instead <g>
My husband thinks they are stupid when they do not do what he wants- so it fits!
