Gadget Gals

09:26 PM by Alexander Turcic in Miscellaneous | Lounge

Keloland runs an article which tells us that ladies love gadgets, too. In fact, "[w]omen are actually out-spending men in the electronics aisles, accounting for fifty-five-billion dollars' worth of sales last year alone. More women are focusing their purchasing power on electronics."

Ok, to me the statistic says that women today simply buy more presents for their boyfriends and husbands

We postulated this change earlier. Now it is official: PalmDigitalMedia is from now on known as eReader.com. The PalmDigitalMedia.com site will continue to operate for the next few weeks while the eReader.com site goes through a set of launch revisions based on customers' feedback.

There is an ongoing survey, which will provide you with a discount code (EREADER05) good for 10% off your next purchase over $3 at eReader.com.

PubSub is a free tool for all of RSS feed junkies. It monitors over one million weblogs and information streams to find the content you're looking for, in real time, and any time matching information appears, you'll see it in your news aggregator.

For example, you can subscribe to a feed for the phrase “Clie”. The feed is populated by matches against the weblog community or newsgroup posts. Very cool!

MyProductAdvisor.com offers a new (beta) tool called the PDA & Smartphone Advisor which aims to help you find the best PDA or smartphone for you.

iPod Killer Vol. II, this time not Sony but Microsoft?

11:38 PM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Portable Audio/Video

According to the Denver Post, Las Vegas section, Microsoft will begin selling portable music players for as much as 80 percent less than Apple's iPod later this year, promising a "look and feel" as good as the iPod.

Considering how Microsoft aggressively entered other markets recently (e.g. the game console market), a $50 MS Windows-powered audio player could be a real thread to Apple. No?

WiFi PDAs' Dirty Little Secret

11:25 PM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

Tom's Networking has a review and comparison of four different PDAs with wireless LAN support (HP H2210 iPAQ, Dell Axim X3 Advanced, ASUS' MyPal A716, PalmOne Tungsten C).

Interestingly, the author comes to the conclusion that "[n]o matter what the construction details are, the Tungsten C clearly outperformed all other products in my test group." Where the Tungsten had a data thruput of 2.7Mbps, the PPC handhelds only achived thruputs from 0.3 to 1.0Mbps.
