Sharp Zaurus SL-6000L Linux Review

12:12 PM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

PDA Buyer's Guide has an in-depth review of the latest Sharp Zaurus, the SL-6000L.

Interestingly, the SL-6000L (reminds me of a big fat Mercedes SL 600) targets enterprise buyers, and is sold only in few consumer retail venues. So don't be surprised about its listing price: $699 USD!

There will be three SL-6000 models:
- 6000L with WiFi 802.11b wireless networking
- 6000N without integrated networking
- 6000W with both, WiFi and Bluetooth.

The reviewer concludes:
Pro: 480x640 VGA display, Linux OS, Dual Expansion slots, fast processor, USB, good keyboard
Con: Large and heavy, no great software selection, expensive,

06:58 AM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

Wireless conquers the world. You don't believe it? BBC News runs a story how Yak farmers in the mountains of Nepal are using wireless internet technology to keep in touch with their families.

So far, the Nepal Wireless Networking project has hooked up five villages in the area using wireless technology.

Btw, the image to the left depicts the Anapurna peak in the Himalayas in Nepal as the sun has risen over the top of the peak.

It’s done! The latest adventure game from LucasFan Games is available now! Its name: Maniac Mansion Deluxe! After eight months of making you can download a 256-colour remake of the mother of all point & click-adventures! With its improved SCUMM-interface, digital sound effects and continuous background music it’s the best Maniac Mansion ever made! The New Adventures of Zak McKracken is available for free too.

I am not so sure about the legality of these two projects, so if you like old Lucasarts Games, you better hurry and snap it now!

04:27 AM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

We realize this gorgeous Swiss Army knife, with a built-in USB flash drive, is probably causing you to become very excited and thus filling you with an almost uncontrollable to immediately get one yourself.

Available with a memory capacity of 64 MB or 128 MB, the Swissmemory USB enables the storage of data of any kind – business cards, family or business project, photos, mp3 audio files, video files and presentations – and can be used with any USB connection.

Mazarin - Gutenberg in HTML

04:11 AM by Alexander Turcic in E-Book General | Deals, Freebies, and Resources (No...

Mazarin is an open-source interface to Project Gutenberg's library.

You can access any of Gutenberg's 10,000+ books and have it formated as an e-book in HTML format. Mazarin provides paginations in addition to generating table of contents and other advanced markup features. Of course, you can also view the full book as a single HTML page - wonderful if you are planning to convert it to iSilo or Plucker format.

Pluckerbooks is another good resource which offers Gutenberg text files as HTML or Plucker PDB.

How Sony Cemented iPod's Supremacy

03:18 PM by Colin Dunstan in Archive | Portable Audio/Video

If you want to see how someone tears apart Sony's future strategy, you *must* read Jeremy Horwitz's article How Sony Cemented iPod's Supremacy. Granted, the iPod is a brilliant player, but this article reminds me that some Apple users sound more like a bunch of fanatics who believe that iPod was God's gift to man.

"Historically, Sony's record with personal computer software has been terrible: application bugs, refusal to update drivers for anything other than recently-released computers, and other issues have plagued Sony's PC development efforts." - what do Sony Clie users have to say about this?

Disposable Email

03:00 PM by Colin Dunstan in Miscellaneous | Lounge

Disposable Email is used to kill spam. In reality, by using a disposable email in most of the subscribing forms, you prevent yourself from appearing on spam-lists, you fight against spam, and wild spammers

Or, you talk with a girl (or boy) on a chat, she (he) asks you for your email address, but you don't feel it very well. Let's have a visit onto Disposable email, and give her/him the generated address. You'll get her mail, but once the delay is over, you won't be annoyed anymore

Of course, you can use it in forums, in newsgroups etc.. There are so much ways to use it that it would be boring to list them all

Others way of use
Hide yourself to dredge your ex-. Preserve you spare time to read interessting emails, no more spam !. And why not, to say to your boss what you think about her/him... And no, Disposable doesn't cook, and isn't used to do the housework....
