I had an idea for an April Fool's Day portable, can't remember what it was... I don't think it was the Analytical Engine, damn, wish I could remember. It would have been funny. I think it required a backpack.

You said a Sega Saturn portable would require a backpack in a podcast (I think it was Sonic Boom) once.

Lame joke, sorry, Babbage fan. And I think Babbage built a small version of it, which worked, but he decided to redesign it but ran out of money then died :(

He never finished the difference engine either, although he did design completely (they built a while ago and it worked). He gave up work on the Difference engine to design the Analytical Engine which was much more like a computer where as the difference Engine was just a Calculator

I'd say the N-Gage would die a horrible death, good thing too becuase I don't like my tacos to be alvie when I eat them.
