Rugged outdoor tablet netbook computer

Rugged outdoor tablet netbook computer
Rugged PC makers, Trimble, have just released another go-anywhere PC. The Yuma is an outdoor, high reliability portable tablet PC designed for the more rugged and outdoorsy type jobs or for people who are a little more clumsy than most. The Yuma can survive most types of punishment. It has an ingress protection rating of 67, so it’s pretty much dust and waterproof and it can handle temperatures from -30C to 60C It’s powered by........Go to the The-future-blog (Added on 2/26/2009 10:26:08 PM)


Toronto Considers the Wireless Canada Program

Toronto Considers the Wireless Canada Program
As the web and web-based applications continue to garner greater attention in our lives, the city is looking at ways to make broadband access more universal. A current proposal making its way through city hall is offering to place one thousand internet-ready, no-cost computers in public venues across the city. Better yet, as part of the plan, the city will actually generate a profit. Take a deep breath.........Go to the The-future-blog (Added on 2/18/2009 11:16:44 PM)


Is a paperless postal service possible?

Is a paperless postal service possible?
Is this what the postal service of the future could look like? If so, frankly, my mind is blown. Thanks to Zumbox, Businesses and organizations can now send mail for free - without the use of paper. So how does it work? Well, unlike email, Zumbox is based entirely on street addresses, just like regular mail. Each address has its own log in, and when people have sent you paperless mail, you can read it via your computer. Businesses can still........Go to the The-future-blog (Added on 2/18/2009 11:16:31 PM)

Ayo for Banana Republic

Ayo for Banana Republic
I haven"t been very impressed with Banana Republic clothing lately. To me it seems that they just put out the exact same cotton/silk blend tops and wide leg slacks season after season. This Spring, they"re attempting to shake things up a bit by announcing that "spring gets spicy" on their website. "Spicy" to BR apparently means that one will see a lot of orange in the new collection of silk/cotton tops and wide leg work pants.They"ve also........Go to the Media-blog (Added on 2/18/2009 11:14:06 PM)

I-O Data Fills DVD Burner Hole In Netbooks

I-O Data Fills DVD Burner Hole In Netbooks
Netbooks are all the rage, and who can blame them. They are cheap, light, small, and ultra-portable. They do lack certain amenities such as DVD/CD drives and burners. It does make sense then that drive manufacturers would rush to try and fill the holes dug by netbooks, and that is exactly what I-O data is trying to do with their new Slim DVD-Burner.

Just Another Bugatti?
Sometimes it seems that every high-end classic car auction has to have a Bugatti on the block. Considering that the French marque was a low-volume sports/racing machine, one wonders how so many survived. (On the other hand, would you have kicked Ava Gardner out of bed?) So let's show due respect to this 1937 Bugatti 57SC Atalante Coupe, which will be auctioned by RM in Arizona Jan 17, 2009 with preview Jan 16.
