iKit: Linux Netbook as Ultra-Mini

,----[ Quote ]
| After the glut of netbooks on the market, Imovio, an offshoot of U.S. company
| Comsciences, presents the iKit Multimedia Messenger, a palm-sized netbook
| with Linux.
|
| With a dimension of 3.7" x 2.6" x 0.6" and a weight of 4 oz. (including
| battery), the iKit is more like a PDA (the company calls it a pocket mobile
| companion). The device is equipped with Bluetooth and WLAN and is perfect for
| chats and email, although it brings along other applications. Included are
| those for multimedia such as graphic display and a video player. Its camera
| is 0.3 megapixels, it has a built-in mic, and a mini-USB port for a stereo
| headset. The browser provided is Opera Mini 4.1.

Intel, Microsoft Squeezed by $170 Billion Budget Cuts (Update3)

| Intel Corp., Microsoft Corp. and the technology companies that so far have
| escaped the credit crisis relatively unscathed will lose out on as much as
| $170 billion in sales next year as the crunch catches up with them.
|
| Corporate spending on computers, software and communications equipment may be
| little changed or fall as much as 5 percent next year as the lending freeze
| spooks clients, said Jane Snorek, an analyst at First American Funds in
| Minneapolis who has followed the industry for 13 years. It would be the first
| decline in the $3.41 trillion market since 2001 after the dot-com bubble
| burst.
