I was using this method since 2013. Unfortunately, Google stopped
fetching my iCal file without any reason I could find. So I stopped
using Cloud-based services.

For now, I only use MobileOrg for capturing stuff on Android and for
displaying my agenda which was generated on the big machine.

I tried this approach as well.

Unfortunately, the bluetooth HW keyboards I was testing did not
provide a method to send Ctrl/Alt/Esc -> no way. With software
keyboards (hacker's keyboard) I don't want to use Emacs since the
commands are "in my fingers" and with SW keyboards, I have to start
remembering the commands to use them slowly.

I was reading about the ARM-based mini-computers here. But since my
Org is rather slow on my intel i5/16GB RAM, I can't imagine working
on such a low performance hardware (again).

So far, Org-mode to go is a very unfortunate adventure.
