Asus To Launch Tiny Eee PC In The US This Week

Posted by telecommatt on November 1, 2007

A look at the Eee PC’s custom Linux interface – Download Squad

Eee PC is a full fledged computer in a 2 pound package for under $400, and that’s pretty impressive.

Runs a custom flavor Linux, weighs next to nothing, and startup/shutdown times are incredible. I want this!

The alarm clock that runs away until you get out of bed!

Buy from Sleep Shop – National Sleep Foundation

Clocky gives you one chance to snooze. If you don’t get up, Clocky will jump off of your nightstand, fall to the floor, and wheel around your room as if searching for a place to hide.

Wow, I could have used something like this today!!

Yet Another iPod Touch Post: I’ve Been Converted!

Posted by telecommatt on September 5, 2007

I have not bought an Apple product since about 1985, and even, it was my dad that bought it because my allowance was only a dollar a week. However, after today’s iPod Touch announcement, I will openly admit that I want one! What changed my mind? Integrated wi-fi. Although it’s basically an phoneless iPhone, this is still serious business. You’re telling me that I can carry my music and access my web apps on the same device? And that it’s software is upgradeable through a software push so it’s likely that there will be new apps added in the future? Plus it’s got the multitouch screen and over 20 hours of battery life. Sold!

Tom Krazit from CNET’s Crave blog did a really nice live-from-the-event post (which is where I got the photo from) with down to the minute details. Check out his post and my thoughts here.

Note: You have to read my annotations from the bottom up, since that is how the timeline runs. You’ll see when you get there.

      Wisdom Publications :: Mindful Politics : A Buddhist Guide to Making the World a Better Place : Melvin McLeod :56

      Mindful Politics A Buddhist Guide to Making the World a Better PlaceMelvin McLeod, EditorWith the holidays and the work I’m doing for other sites, I’ve had very little time to keep up my posting here, and that’s been frustrating not having time to voice my opinion about things. I have to take time away from all that for a few minutes to tell you about this book. I don’t care if you get it from or or borrow it from some guy in the office, but get a hold of this book! I found this book completely on accident and it’s a good story. I was having a very bad day, but found a ten dollar bill laying on the floor with no one else around. I grabbed the bill and, later that day, missed my bus home. I had to take a detour to the Mall of America to catch another bus. While at the mall and waiting for my bus to arrive, I sat looking at the Eastern Spirituality section of a bookstore and saw that someone had left this book out of place on a shelf. I picked it up, leafed through it, and before I knew it, I had purchased the book. I can’t put it down! Here is a wonderful breath of political fresh air that I’d never have found had I not followed a series of opportunities to it’s end. The book is a series of essays by modern day Buddhist writers dealing with Western politics. That’s not to say one has to have any more than a passing interest in Buddhism to get something from the reading. This is a book that goes beyond partisan politics, left vs. right agendas, and so on. If you want to see an end to political violence, to antiethical society, to global warming and disregard for the environment, read this book. If you read one book on politics in 2007, let it be this book.

      Cheers & happy holidays!
