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?

I like the Microdrive. In terms of battery use, I bought the PCMCIA expansion jacket instead of the CF jacket, simply because I wanted as much flexibility as possible (the Microdrive comes with a type I and type II CF adapter), as well as the additional battery. I have had no trouble with battery life so far. I rarely charge the jacket more than once a fortnight and my iPaq lasts as long as it did prior to getting the extra kit.

I have a 128 MB CF card and 2 x 64MB cards and both are fine. I have seen 256 examples, but have never seen a report on their availibility for iPaqs.

I have quite a few small Java applications running on the iPaq as well as loads of Acrobat documents and like you, no way am I giving 41 MB to anything. I must say I have been disappointed for a while that noone has done some sort of PocketPC port of Mozilla. I would like to see it on my PocketPC instead of P IE. I look at K-Meleon and I see Gecko running like a little steam train and I see a < 12MB footprint. Surely Gecko could be stripped down to fit PocketPC. PPC 2002 already means 36xx owners who upgrade will be running software from cards so now might be a good time to get a Pocket Gecko on the market :)
