If it can stream audio from other network devices this would be great to leave plugged into a main stereo.

Wider use..?

"Internet Explorer, which is supplied as part of Windows CE 5"

Wonder if it would be possible to run the core shell desktop and open this little baby up to PDA apps..?

CE5?

wow... CE5 is pretty old, but I guess that gives modern hardware an advantage.

would be interesting to see this with a current version of CE and the IE version from the ZuneHD... most of the touch phones have really lost the PalmPilot ease of use for quickly scribbling down a shopping list or writing some notes on the fly.

Why is showing WEP/WPA passcodes a blunder?

These things aren't like passwords at all - they're shared secrets which are mostly designed to keep people outside the building from accessing your network - if they're on your computer they probably have all the access they need. The WEP ones in particular are stupidly difficult to type if you can't see what you're typing, and if they get stored in your keychain (Ubuntu pointlessness), then you can't get online without either pointlessly typing in your password halfway through the boot process or unsecuring all the rest of your passwords.

Kind of cute.

I'm thinking handy for the Korean businessman who wants an interactive crib sheet to remind him who someone is and why knowing them might be useful (with an attached photo). And 4 hours video play is pretty impressive for its size (how thick is it again?)

Just a thought.
