As I write this on my first tablet, a Dell Venue 7, I am thinking about Sherlock Holmes and technology. We all know that the recent TV adaptations feature Holmes using modern technology, such as cellphones, laptops, etc. But we often overlook, in our fondness for Victorian nostalgia, how tech savvy Holmes was in his day: telegrams, train tables, medical laboratories, all feature prominently in the original stories. So it's not a big stretch of the imagination to picture the great detective taking advantage of all the resources at his command. Meanwhile, his main resource has been, and will continue to be his deductive prowess.
P.S. Unlike Holmes, it takes me awhile to figure out some technology. It took me forever to figure out how to get the picture above into the blog post using the app on my tablet. But I did it, and in the end, it was...elementary.
