IM over your phone to send instant messages or SMS if you live in a country that supports it, and the Search widget lets you use Yahoo! search functions by either typing or by voice.

It's easier than most of us want to admit to break the screen on a netbook. If you use your netbook outdoors a lot you have probably noticed that the screen is hard to read as well.
If you are tired of straining to read you netbook or just want a screen easier to read in sunlight, the Pixel Qi display is now available as a DIY product. The screen will fit most 10.1-inch netbooks.
The Syabas PopBox was on display back during CES and the thing looked pretty darn cool. If you were among the many that were eagerly waiting for it to launch so you could buy, we have a bit of bad news for you.
The thing was up for preorder back in April at Amazon and now we hear that the PopBox has been delayed until July 23. Apparently, the culprit is the software, not the firmware for the device.

A few weeks back wicked lasers pulled the wraps off an awesome blue laser that reminded many geeks of Star Wars. The laser carried a disclaimer that said it could instantly burn skin and blind users making me want it bad.
Lucasfilm has issues a cease and desist order to try and get Wicked to pull the laser off the market for looking like a lightsaber. This makes me only want one more honestly.
If you like the idea of an eReader, but have been holding out until the nice readers came down in price, this might be the day to buy. The original Amazon Kindle is on Woot for a steal.
The Kindle is selling for $149.99 plus $5 for shipping. The original device has a 6-inch screen, global wireless service, and is the real deal not a cheap knock off.
