Thanks to Jon Stewart for the heads up."It’s been on vacation for the past three years, but Toshiba’s bringing back their much-loved line of ultralight libretto laptops. They’re claiming that they brought back the libretto to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the introduction of their very first laptop >>>>>" Engadget

Is Microsoft Downsizing the Tablet PCIs Microsoft Downsizing the Tablet PC


Is Microsoft Downsizing the Tablet PC? according to eWeek it may well be the case. "First it was the slate. Then it was the PC-Tablet convertible. Now it's a mini-Tablet that can do everything that a traditional Tablet PC can do, plus store electronic books, that could end up as the new gadget on which Microsoft is betting to further Tablet PC momentum.

A prototype of a new device—described by sources as a type of hybrid Tablet PC/eBook—has been making its way around the Microsoft Corp. Redmond campus, according to sources. The mini-Tablet, which measures about six inches by eight inches and features a digitizer, is just one of a number of new Tablet form factors expected to debut in the coming months."

Programs that let you view ebooks on your HandheldPrograms that let you view ebooks on your Handheld
Tony Atkins dropped me a line to point to this editorial over at Pocket PC Magazine about reading ebooks on your HPC. "Electronic books have become the new technological “Beanie Baby.” Everyone has heard about them, not everyone is excited about them, but a devoted core of users has discovered a new digital promised land of literature. Last March, for example, Steven King published a short novel, Riding the Bullet, as an e-text for $2.50. Two and one-half requests per second were received initially, causing network slow-downs and crashes around the country. Specialized websites now aggressively recruit would-be authors who can have a real opportunity for self-publishing."
