The Dell Mini 5 has what's needed to be a iPad slayer. Including the metallic back cover. But I doubt that this is going to be the case because Dell does not have the marketing machine owned by Apple. Enjoy Jkk's video about this wonderful machine.

Wherever is a computers there is a hacker. But... Come on guys, what I'm reading here is scary.
In a late 2009 demonstration at a decommissioned airfield in Blaine Washington, they hacked into a test car's electronic braking system and prevented a test driver from braking a moving car -- no matter how hard he pressed on the brakes. In other tests, they were able to kill the engine, falsify the speedometer reading, and automatically lock the car's brakes unevenly, a maneuver that could destabilize the car traveling high speeds. They ran their test by plugging a laptop into the car's diagnostic system and then controlling that computer wirelessly, from a laptop in a vehicle riding next to the car.

Microsoft has released Office Mobile 2010 for free for all Windows Mobile 6.5 devices. That’s a real good news!
Today not only marks the availability of Office 2010 for organizations, but also the immediate availability of Office Mobile 2010 for all Windows Mobile 6.5 based phones with an earlier version of Office Mobile FOR FREE! via Windows Phone Marketplace. Office Mobile 2010 for Windows Mobile 6.5 includes new mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SharePoint Workspace. These new mobile versions offer a more touch-friendly layout and greater ability to work with documents on the phone – like editing PowerPoint presentations.
It’s happening what many thought that will happen after the announce of HP buying Palm was released. HP will put WebOS in the HP Slate according to news posted today at GottabeMobile.
HP Slate will not be released this summer as previously expected. Instead, the company is in a rush to get Palm’s WebOS onto a slate device that will be named the HP Hurricane. The sources, who are about as close to the project as you can get, say that HP sees the device as a competitor to the iPad.
Makes a lot of sense this move. We are becoming witnesses of the appearance of a new competitor of the iPad, and another one using Multitask. This is a very important point to keep in mind.

At last. News groups to me is like a dinosaur that Microsoft was keeping alive. They are useful sources of information, no question about it, but forums are a lot better to keep that information. So thank you Microsoft for listening.
Beginning in June 2010, Microsoft will begin closing newsgroups and migrating users to Microsoft forums that include Microsoft Answers, TechNet and MSDN. This move will centralize content, make it easier for contributors to retain their influence, reduce redundancies and make content easier to find. Overall, forums offer a better spam management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by encouraging a healthy discussion space.

The life of Tablet PCs and UMPCs have not been easy. Like any idea ahead of time we have seen many problems coming from implementations that still do not have a full hardware support. Like the UMPC resolutions at 800x480. Yes, everybody knew that that was not enough but to have a good price they had to compromise this and use a display that was designed for a completely different activity. To have a display with more resolution for that new category of devices (UMPC) would have taken time and would have cost a lot more. And the whole idea behind was to have a device with a price lower than 500 dollars. But anyway… The reason that I’m bringing this is because while some pages spend time looking at the errors we have Bill Gate saying:
"Microsoft has a lot of different tablet projects that we're pursuing. We think that work with the pen that Microsoft pioneered will become a mainstream for students. It can give you a device that you can not only read, but also create documents at the same time."
A really good news for people like me that still believe in the concept TabletPC/UMPC. Keep going Bill, that I’m with you.

Guys if you are driving, please do not "text". And please, do not try to make a call unless you have it in your speed deal, looking in your contacts will distract you and eventually you may have an accident. But here is a solution, Talking Touch Dialer allows you to navigate in your contacts with very little distraction because it reads the contacts for you, once you find the one that you are looking for, with just a gesture it dials it for you.
You can watch a demo here, it's in Spanish but I can tell you, the program speaks in English better than me!
You can find it in the Android Market using this barcode:
