James and Kevin had a chance to play with the upcoming T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ Google Android device that will be tough for me to resist. I talked about my new Zune HD and iPod nano and then I learned about Opera 10's Turbo Mode on a PC. Opera Mini 5 beta is out for Java-enabled phones and adds some great new features, all for FREE.

PDANet takes the Motorola Q (and other smartphones) and turns them into wireless broadband modems that can be used by your PC.

Gates forgoes reality distortion for reality acquisition

During his Q&A at D with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, Bill Gates came up with a new term--or at least one I hadn't heard before. He pulled out a Motorola Q (still not shipping officially), which runs the Windows mobile operating system, calling it a multipurpose device (like a PC) and an example of what will be a "reality aquisition device.
