    Ok everybody,

    By now most of the Package Drivers in the country are probably using DIAD 4. I'm sure by now, UPS is probably designing the next version, DIAD 5. As the people who actually will use this thing, what improvements (besides getting rid of the Shift Key?:hammer: ) would you like to see?

    Retina scanning for identification. (Instead of signature).

    Voice recognition for unscannable packages. Just speak the barcode instead of keying it in.

    It could give verbal alerts!!!

    "Your supervisor is approaching!"

    "Please close your bulkhead door!"

    "It is 2 pm. You are currently .57 hours paid over!"

    "Your fly is open!"

    Yes, you obviously do.

    I would add two "safety keys."

    They would be there so you couldn't enter anything accidentally.

    One would be on the extreme upper left and the other would be on the extreme lower right.

    You would have to hold both keys simultaneously and punch in letters/numbers with your nose.

    It'd also have a small camera that would transmit pictures of you entering letters/numbers (with your nose) back to a web page that would be updated in real time for everyone to enjoy.

    You're right, this is an excellent thread... pointless, stupid, and fun.
