I do not agree with you: the neo currently struggles with 2D drawing;
a real (understand: usable) zooming user interface has to achieve
fluid un/zooming, so that the zooming metaphor applies to our
analogical sense of space.
I hope the chip will enable ZUIs, together with the accelerometers,
not just eye-candy !
Anyway, these are great news !!!
