I like excel for data logging. Your suggestion sounds like a logical progression.
I would love to have an app on a tablet that lets me record data with flexible parameters, maybe interfacing with off-the-shelf sensing technology (backyard weatherstations and the like), and maybe producing relevant graphic output of said data at need (graphs, tables, perhaps even customised planting and harvesting schedules).
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
