Interesting take. I've been considering using my Powerbook in class in my grad program, as I'm experimenting with using backpackit.com to keep track of notes and etc. But it just ends up feeling a bit rude to have the thing open while the prof and classmates are discussing, regardless of whether I'm simply taking notes or bored and cruising through flickr. Seems like a case where the technology would make life easier, but the social context creates a barrier.
