Former IBM VP of Interenet Technology John Patrick is amazed with X1. I'm amazed that anyone could possibly be impressed with 24 year old technology.

Why is anyone impressed about the search capabilities of Gmail or Outlook+X1? Apart from the overall scale of Gmail, there's nothing to be impressed by. Lotus Notes has done this for a dozen years, but even that was nothing new. Wang Labs' Alliance system, running on 2 MHz Z80 processors with 64K of RAM, was doing word indexing of documents and database records in 1981.
