Well, gee. I'll be the first to say. April Fools!

The question is, am I the fool (for calling it such) or will everyone else be (for believing it)? :eek:

Mine came in the mail the other day. Is it okay if I post pictures of mine here?

Below is a photo of the prototype. While it is difficult to see the screen, it is a full-functioning BibleWorks BiSKeT edition.

Nifty! What motivated BW to move in this direction as opposed to making something like BiSKeT available on other palm-type, with larger screens, systems?

The screen on this is way too big. It doesn't fit in that "watch fob" pocket my Levis 501 has. I'll wait for BiSKeT 2.0. However, by then I'll be wearing "Wrangler" jeans, they have a "comfort fit" for us older city dandy-boys. So this BiSKeT 1.0 my be just the dealio.

I'm sorry, but I posted old information by mistake. The 2nd generation prototype in the picture is actually a 1.4 inch screen. The battery life is also more. It has nearly 3 hours of run time.

I already carry around a Pocket PC and would love BW on it. As it stands I would have to carry around yet another device.
So my interest is dimished as a result.
Let me know when you have a Pocket PC version coming out.

Oh, and I forgot to tell everybody yesterday: I hacked into my iPhone and it's running Bibleworks now. Morphology, Maps, Modules, everything.
Just not as small as a keychain. :p

That's nothing. I hacked my fridge and now I can get a dose of the word when I get my cereal milk out each morning.

That's nothing. I hacked my fridge and now I can get a dose of the word when I get my cereal milk out each morning.

I remember in the old days, before I got my Commodore 64, that when I wanted to find a verse in the Bible, I had to either look it up in a concordance or actually go page by page through my Bible until I found it.

I remember one instance as if it happened yesterday. I was frantic to find a verse, and it took me forever to find it, but when I did, it was well worth it, for I was really in need of the words of that particular passage. As a result, finding that verse and those words meant so much more to me since I had struggled so hard in my search, especially since those struggles were permeated by prayer. In other words, there was a soul transaction in that endeavor.

Nowadays, however, I simply open up BibleWorks and type in whatever I'm looking for, and, Viola! No struggle, no prayer. Just a quick, efficient, mechanical press of the keys. And very little gratfication.

In the same vein, I can remember when I and others used to memorize verse after verse, and passage after passage. Even whole books sometimes.

R. D. Wilson, for example, who was fluent in 45 languages and dialects, had memorized the entire NT and much of the OT in Hebrew, and it is asserted that he could recite the entire NT in Hebrew without missing so much as a syllable.

But nowadays, with the glorification of the computer and the establishment of the electronic age, we don't need all these old-fashioned techniques anymore...

Or do we? :cool:
