The problem with cool toys

Plan:

To make progress on personal projects without wasting the work day, type up notes during lunch break.

Problem:

For every screenful of text, someone notices the little screen of the PDA and the way it rests atop a portable keyboard. They start talking about it. Admiring the fold-out keyboard. Asking questions. Expressing disappointment that it's not a combo phone & Wi-Fi do-everything wondertoy... This reduces available time, particularly if I don't want them reading what I'm writing and switch to a different app.

So, for the most part, computing during lunch is not effective, but I'll be interested to see how the MacBook compares. More or fewer comments than the PDA?
