iPod Touch competitor?

Maybe it is intended as an iPT competitor, like the new Samsung unit.

Not a bad idea, IMO.

a Logitech X-530, which I don't like a lot. Sounds okay, but isn't really up to snuff for music listening. I'm sure the audioengine would sound much better -they have the rep of sounding like "real"...

yes amazon store

I went to the company web site and yes, you can download apps from the Amazon web store.

Android Apps?

If it doesn't have access to the Apps Store, how do you load apps on it?

Without apps it wouldn't be worth a lot to me. There are a few apps I just have to have to make a tablet worthwhile.

don't like wireless

Bought a fairly expensive Mircrosoft Wireless Ergonomic keyboard and mouse set.

apps in the coming year

Google will give programmers monetary incentive to write apps (better royalty rates) and lots of apps will be written.

It isn't important for Android to match the number of Apple apps, just that...

laptop keyboards

In the 90's I had a Samsung Laptop with an adjustable "ergonomic" keyboard. It had a split in the middle - a kind of hinge - so when you opened it you could leave it alone (standard laptop keyboard)...

No DE certainly would make it a non-starter for me and many other users. The whole point of WHS for me is redundant backups with no effort needed on my part. This app seems like it would solve the...

Shure headphones

I'd use them for travel with my mp3 player, and with my laptop for times I don't want to disturb others.

First drive500 Mb

I think my first HD was a 500 MB model on a 386 Windows 3.1 PC. It was also used for work, and I remember convincing my boss that I needed 8 MB of RAM instead of 4 MB on the PC so I could work...

Yes, I had an "electrical event" occur just as my HD was starting to write something, and the drive got totally zapped. Simply stopped functioning immediately, and I lost all my data.

Since then...

it may be pc playback


I'm 52. I cranked it up through my stereo, and I could hear down to the 24 year old (18khz) if I cranked it up very loud. At normal volumes I could hear 15k clearly.

Windows7 - new OS?

I don't know, but many professional reviewers have referred to it as "Vista SP3".

It is obviously the same basic code, as you can load it on any Vista machine and it works, apparently with the...

upgrade Vista - at what price?

Apple decided it's OS upgrade (Leopard to Snow Leopard) will cost only $29. Unfortunately, Microsoft never gets it - they apparently plan to charge the regular $125 or so for a Vista to W7 upgrade.

contest - lost data

I once lost a digital photo from a place in Turkey that I'd travelled to especially to take the photo.

I managed to use recovery software to get a small low quality version of the photo back.
