$599 Viliv S5 ultra portable PC is looking good

I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.

Waking up, calming down

Fujitsu is working on a steering wheel-mounted drowsiness sensor that will detect subtle changes in the driver's heart rate and respond with various wake-up calls, including opening the windows, blasting the radio and jolting the wheel. Seriously unconscious drivers might get all three at once.

SP3 Under Suspicion Again

I find myself suspecting that there is something very strange wrong with Windows XP SP3, or at least with the installation procedure for it. I had been running this Fujitsu Lifebook S6510 with Windows XP Professional for several months when SP3 came out.

MobileTechRoundup show #138, Doesn't anyone else have a Nerd Club at work?

James, Kevin, and I spent a bit more time than planned talking about the upcoming iPhone 3G on MobileTechRoundup show #138, but we eventually did move on to talk about lots more in the world of mobile tech. I talked about my experiences with upgrading the Nokia N78 over the air and James is going to try it out soon too. How much can be said about WiMAX and how much will it cost? Kevin let me know about Ubuntu MID Edition and I may actually load it on my Fujitsu U810 since the Intel A110 processor is supported. Great news that the public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 will soon be available for Windows Mobile and UIQ owners. We also introduced listeners to the Nerd Club.

Triple Boot Ubuntu/Vista/XP - No Go So Far

After several days of struggle, I am still unable to get a triple-boot disk set up on my Fujitsu Lifebook S6510. The first problem that I ran into was that the Windows installation disks I have are actually "recovery" media from Fujitsu, and as such they will only recreate the factory-delivered configuration, with Windows (Vista or XP) in the C: partition, which they assume is the first readable partition on the drive.

Dual-Boot Ubuntu and Windows XP Professional

I have taken the next step in setting up my Ubuntu working environment, and maintaining access to XP on my laptops for the few things that I still can only do on Windows. As always, I have started this on the older "test" laptop, a Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook S2110, which has an AMD Turion 64 CPU.

ritePen 3.0 released with macro support and intelligent navigation functionality

I have a Fujitsu U810 UMPC and like to keep it around to use as a Tablet PC, traveling media player (Amazon Unbox looks fantastic), and my home Windows PC (in the docking cradle connected to a 17 inch LCD). A few weeks ago the folks at Ritescript, a division of Evernote Corporation, asked if I wanted to beta test their upcoming release of ritePen version 3.0. I jumped on the chance and have been playing with it for a bit and now see that the official press release and announcement were posted yesterday so you can now download and install it on your Tablet PC.

Triple booting into Vista, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu on a Fujitsu U810 UMPC

A few weeks ago Jason D. O'Grady posted about the news that a person was able to get Mac OS X running on an OQO. Prior to that Kevin Tofel had Mac OS X running on a powerful Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium UMPC device. I have the Fujitsu U810, but use it as my primary travel computer and didn't want to mess things up so I was hesitant to give this a try on my device. However, I just read on the GottaBeMobile forums that a brave individual was able to get Mac OS X, Windows Vista, and Linux Ubuntu all running on his Fujitsu U810 UMPC device.
