eav Alternatives, Consider the Cybiko (463 comments)

There was a childs toy called a Cybiko which was a hand-held computer introduced back in April 2000, that implemented its own radio network. We could easily create a vastly improved device that instead integrated with the internet and that could operate independently of current ISP's if for some reason normal connections were down. Cell phones are almost there lacking only the ability to operate independently of the carrier. See,

Freescale Unveils Design For $199 Tablet

eav Re:Too big for 1 hand, so how do you type (173 comments)

How do you do data entry, even touch screen, if you need both hands to hold it? If I want to put a computer on my lap, I'll buy a laptop. If I want a PDA, I'll use a PDA. A 2-handed PDA sucks.

Does not seem to be made for data entry. I otherwise don't see holding it with one hand as a problem. I mean, just to test it out I picked up my 13" laptop and closed its easily holdable with one hand. Input with one hand should be easy. Whats bad is how ugly the samples they show are.

Running the VM version under Vista, seems stable so far. There were no problems, installed both VM and Haiku in less than 10 minutes. Connects to the internet easily. Decided to use the VM version as my system has a wireless connection. Bezilla looks to be a version of Firefox 2.x.

US Call-Center Jobs — That Pay $100K a Year

eav Re:Um, I'm doubtful (362 comments)

I want Universal Health Care for everyone; the only horror is that anyone in the US is unable to get health care. Personally I am retired and covered by a better than average health plan. Also I do not see Canada and Europe as having any association between horror and their health plans, rather their health plans are objects of envy and desire by the vast majority of US citizens.

I wonder is the rate is to be reduced?"
