kidgenius, SpinnerBait, and anonymous readers wrote in with four fun tales of small devices doing cool things. IBM has built a supercomputer
the size of a TV, using 1000 PPC-based CPUs. Shuttle
recently began shipping their
AMD Athlon 64 based XPC
, the size of a breadbox. Sony has a new
0.4" thick VAIO notebook
(scroll down). And a European company is about to introduce the
a handheld WinCE gaming gadget with 3D, Bluetooth, SMS, MP3 playback, MPEG4 video playback, camera, and -- interestingly -- GPS tracking. "The system allows the parents to establish 'fences,' which, when entered by the child, cause a notification to be sent to the parents in the form of either an SMS message or an email." Hmmm.
