Though interesting, that is a hell of a lot of work. Doing it his way does not seem like a real effective way of doing this.

Seriously, imagine every day you stopped to save PDF's of every single webpage, take pictures of every receipt, unloaded and processed every single video and picture...would be wasting more of your life doing this then actually enjoying it :p

I am sure in 10-20 years there will be a more practical way of doing this. Maybe a usb port in the back of your head to unload the data to your computer every evening.

What happens if he blue-screens while he's driving?:D

Edit: I'm suddenly remembering a couple of movies Johnny Mnemonic (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113481/) and The Final Cut (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364343/).

If they combine it with this think what they could do:
Brain scans reveal what you've seen (http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/09/25/brain.scans.wired/index.html)

I am still waiting for computer brain control:
Brain Computer Interface can help people control their computers with just their brain power. (http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/tech/2009/09/25/eod.brain.reader.cnn)
