    1. Are we looking at a DROID sized board? Or is the DIAD V here to stay...

    2. Did the 1990 one come with a backpack?

    I actually remember signing Diad 1 as a kid when we would get deliveries at the house

    I think the 5 will be here for at least a few more years.

    I'd love to know who designs/develops those things. As a tech nerd, I want that job!

    The chart says the V came out in 2011. Is that accurate? We didn't get them until mid 2013.

    I don't expect the VI to get much smaller, at least in height and width. I would like to see it thinner and lighter which I'm sure will happen.

    Didn't all deliveries back then require sigs?

    New ones will come, just a matter of when. Considering we still have manual trucks could be awhile.

    The V can take a beating kudos to the designer.

    No, we were just tougher back then.

    Yes, 2011. Your area is just behind the curve.


    The future of the company concerns me.

    I can just see it now....

    the supe sitting and waiting for the mastiff to poop the droid diad out after he got it away from the driver and swallowed it.

    A painfully funny thought.

    No. When I was first hired, we were using papyrus and sticks of charcoal.

    High tech stuff.
