Finger sized USB Hard Drive

This finger sized 1Gig USB drive seems pretty cool. They claim no software needed, just plug it in to any USB PC. Of course Mac and Linux I have no idea of they have USB drive support built in like Windows does. I would assume they do but the site says it only supports Windows […]

Air Blue

Another seemingly useless product. This caught my eye because it’s the first Bluetooth product I’ve actally seen on the shelves. One part plugs into your notebook. The other into your cellphone allowing you to use the cellphone’s modem without needed to connect a cable. Is that really so useful? First of all that plug is […]

Parts is Parts

Today I was in Akihabara or “Electric Town” as it’s called here, buying a new hard drive for my notebook computer. I have a Sony SR-7K with a 12gig drive and I’ve filled it up. I love this notebook. I’ve got 256meg of ram and since I’ve had this notebook I haven’t used my desktop […]

Apple kicking all kinds of ass

Apple is kicking all kinds of ass here in Japan. The latest thing is the new iBook. Unlike the old iBook which looked like a toilet lid and weighed a ton this one is only 5 lbs, looks decent and it’s CHEAP!!! The cheapest one is $1300 with 64meg and a CD-ROM, Built in ethernet, […]

Jaw Dropping Displays

Mac OS X

I showed my Mom the Apple Cinema Display, kind of like a hint about birthday gifts 😀 and they were running OS X on the machine connected to the display. It’s kind of groovie in a way. If you want to see the main desktop in action check out a movie here. On the other […]

MS to include CD Burning in WinXP

Microsoft fan boy that I am, I looked up Windows XP Pro today. It looks like Win XP Pro is the Win2K upgrade vs Win XP Home which is the WinME upgrade. I noticed on their list that XP Pro includes CD burning built in. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. I suspect […]
