Format: Hardcover
This is a good view on what will probably be, and partially is already. The authors base their thinking and projections on their work at a major corporate's R&D facilities, and their personal adoption thereof. Many of the concepts and technologies may have appeared "space-age" a few years ago, but for the average IT worker a lot is already familiar or in the pipeline. For the less IT-savvy, read this book to prepare yourselves!

Slightly odd that this isn't available as an ebook! It's a shame given the subject matter, or maybe I'm missing the point?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, could change the way you work 29 April 2010
By PacificNorthwestTechDad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book after seeing it advertised in Evernote (an app I use for tracking random bits of info). It basically describes current trends in personal data storage and management, and then how that could change how you personally store and retrieve info in the future. The main premise is that data storage is cheap and getting cheaper every day, and retrieval technologies (indexing, etc) are getting good enough that with a bit of advanced prep you could store everything you ever see, and have it at your fingertips forever.

This is a light read and is not a technical book. It is aimed at the masses, not the technorati. I'm a retired Microsoftie so probably not the target audience but I still found it interesting. And I have started scanning and then throwing away a lot more stuff after reading this book.
2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't find read inspiring or even educational 27 Dec. 2013
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Maybe I read this book too late. I finished this book two years ago and realized I didn't give my input to amazon. I felt like it explained the potential of a technology that already exists. I had some interest reading parts that seems like a journal of how all this tech came to be, but at those part the context became hard to understand.

I thought it was worth at least 2 stars because I am very interested in the subject of easily storing and recovering memory. After reading this book I still haven't learn anything new that wasn't already learned from the tech we have currently out. That's why I got the book, for something new on the field. It left me very unsatisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember Everything.. How Cool Would That Be? 3 Feb. 2010
By Warren Whitlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Every since I read "The Road Ahead" by Bill Gates I've been thinking about how the technology coming will record everything.. and how much that is akin to what we were taught in Sunday School about God knowing everything we did.

Today, that's coming true. Not from angels writing it down in a books on high, but self reported GPS, tweets, posts and purchase records.

"Total Recall" is a hand on look at just how close we are.. and why most of us will want to embrace this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gordon Bell is always ahead of the Curve. 2 Mar. 2014
By Thomas W. Spradlin Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I worked for Digital Equipment Corp in the early 70's and was aware of Gordon Bell. If something the company needed was a little unusual it seemed Gordon Bell would be involved. Ihave some of his other books and have never been disapointed. This book is the same and it is the future.
2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment 21 Oct. 2015
By Tom Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Started off quite interesting but it devolved into cheerleading for the subject. A huge disapppointment.
