Fujitsui U810 ultra-portable PC now available

I have been enjoying the mobile office functionality of the HTC Advantage (see my review) and am always on the lookout for other powerful mobile devices that can help me work where I want to be. One of the devices I have been keeping my eye on is the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 that looks a bit like a big brother to my old Sony CLIE UX 50. I just read on jkOnTheRun that the Fujitsu U810 is now up on the Fujitsu website and available for US$999 or US$1099. The only difference between the two is the version of Vista (Home vs. Business) and the inclusion of Microsoft Works or Office. Compared to other devices in this ultra-portable PC category these sound like very good prices and definitely have me interested.

Apple and Apple Corps: Can you work it out

In January of 1984, Apple introduced the Macintosh and an innovative and arresting television advertisement, directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down). In the ad, a Big Brother (Orwell's 1984) figure on a huge screen speaks about "gardens of pure ideology, one people, one cause" to a crowd human automatons.

Joho the Blog: IBM shows for the enterprise, and more

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make itto a press event which IBM software held earlier this week, entitled "Thefuture of social networks".  David Weinberger did, though, andhas a very detailed writeup:They're talking about 1)Social Nets Analytics, a "solution" [yech, I hate that term --What product isn't a solution? Can-opener= Your sealed can solution. Plunger= Your crap won't go down solution] that tracks and analyzes what's beingsaid about you on in blogs, feeds, articles...; 2) Appliki, an "applicationwiki" [= JotSpot competitor, = Why aren't we using Notes for this?];3) Jamalyzer, productizing what IBM uses in its "jams," multi-daycross-company conversations; 4) dogear social bookmarking service [= "authentication," i.e. The Folksonomy Torquer]; 5) Fringe,a productiziation of IBM's internal employee phonebook [ = Friendster withoutthe condoms]; Web Activity Management, what seems to be a portal for trackingall your business activities and communications [ = Big Blue Brother];6) Blog and Wiki Central, IBM's internal blog aggregator.Thequestion occurs in his writeup as to why Notes wasn't more a part of thediscussion.  It's a good question and one I'll be poking around abit when I get back to the ranch this afternoon.  I'm certain thereis very strong awareness amongst those who particpated of the blog, wiki,RSS work that's been done with Notes/Domino to-date.Anyway, check out Weinberger's descriptionof several of the other projects, as well as the discussion during theday.  My key takeaway -- IBM software gets social software, and theIBM research team is intent on continuing their efforts in this space. We've already seen productized projects like ActivityExplorer, let's hope some moreof these make the same progression.Link: Johothe Blog: IBM shows for the enterprise, and more>

Rupert Goodwins' Diary

Wednesday 1/9/2004I'll vote for anything that gets people thinking about science rather than Big Brother or Russell Grant's Guide To Astrology And Your Colon. Ladbrokes is now running a book on scientific discoveries, with the favourite being "Cosmic ray origins determined" at a mere 4/1.

Comdex: Multi-function devices add features

The all in one is on the march at Comdex with big name companes like Hewlett Packard, Epson, and Brother all showing a range of multi-function devices. Price competition is keen and all of the vendors are stressing the cost and space saving appeal of owning one small and inexpensive box over the need to buy a printer, fax, scanner, and photocopier separately.
