H a p p y N e w Y e a r !!! We’re getting it in now while we still can :)
We wanted to send a quick hello and happy holidays to all of our readers. See you on the other side of new year.
After a near-Olympian bout of advanced pondering and spec-sniffing – as witnessed in our recent Looking For The Ultimate Netbook feature, we finally plumped for the Asus Eee 901.
The netbook is available in both Windows XP and Linux versions, and we plumped for the XP version on account of our familiarity with the OS and the fact that it promised a slightly longer battery life (albeit at the price of reduced flash memory).
One of the fears/ dangers of opening up to public comments on a Web site is that someone will get involved who has the ability to produce words at a remarkable pace and those words will be destructive. Another outcome is that they’re hilarious.
Don’t you just love Google’s old school Error Page?
It reminds us of a time of innocence in the company. One that feels many light years ago.
Ahhh… happy days.
If you haven’t heard, mxiwit, the great Web service that lets people create their own online mixtape, complete with a player that looks like a real old compact cassette tape with rotating reels, is closing, describing their situation as being “between a rock and a hard place.”
There’s two pieces of good news to add to this sad news.
We managed to get a brief hands on with the Peek email gadget at the WiredStore in New York and thought we’d share a few impressions.
This little fella is designed for one thing only – accessing mobile email over the GPRS data network – and comes with a full keypad and a 240 x 320 pixels colour screen (with a rather small font size).
Last.fm is expanding their service away from just computers on to mobile phones, with Vodafone.
It looks like the relatively recent corporate owners of Last.fm, CBS, are flexing their biz dev muscles, aiming to gain back some of the considerable investment they made in the music service.
In part one we rated the Palm Centro, the Asus Eee 901 netbook and LG GSA-E5ON portable CD/DVD rewriter as travelling companions. Read on for our round up.

With only 12GB of storage available on the Eee 901, we needed to back up our precious photo files on to this handy USB portable hard drive (as well as backing up to a 16GB memory card in the Eee).
In what has to be a last gasp, make or break move, Palm have announced that they will be announcing their long overdue new operating system at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
