AOLTW Announces Sony Pact

Tuesday November 13th, 2001

Normally we wouldn't mention this, except there was a key quote that we thought should be highlighted in the press release:

* The joint development of an Internet browser designed for optimal performance, a consistent experience, and greater convenience on networked consumer electronic devices. Both companies envision not only employing the browser in future Sony products but also making it available to other consumer electronics manufacturers.
Could we soon see Mozilla on Sony devices like the Playstation or other pc based devices?

#64 more off topic now.. iPAQ & microdrive & CF cards

How is the Microdrive working for you? I have a CF pocket and a 64MB CF card. I've heard a lot of different versions on how the IBM Microdrives are. Some say they totally rule, others say they suck up battery so fast the iPAQ is completely useless.. I'd like to get one for mp3 use for exactly the use pattern you said - listening to mp3's while reading web pages on the subway on the way to work. Right now, I have to put the mp3's on the flash card. BTW, do you know what the maximum CF card size is that works with the 36xx series iPAQ's? Some CF manufacturers list 64MB as the largest size but I've seen people claim they have 512MB cards working just fine.

In any case, to make this a little more on-topic, I have my iPAQ crammed with stuff.. Books from Project Gutenberg, mp3's, software.. I also work in a company that makes software for handhelds & smartphones (a 3D game engine) and I have a lot of our own stuff on it as well.. There's no way in hell I'd give 41MB of 64MB to *one* application. Let alone now that I only have 32MB on the device! :)
