still looking for a Newton successor...

form factor should be comparable to a Paperback book, roughly 16*10*1,2 cm. Screen should be 1280*768 with 217 dpi. Bluetooth, IEEE802.11g and IRda built in. MacOSX would be fine, but only with Hypercard and LISP. Update n 1/2012: Samsung Galaxy Note seems to be pretty close. No IR, just Android, but VNC to a Mac should give access to MacOSX and via virtual machines (Parallels, VMware, VirualBox) you can use Solaris, Linux and Windows, too.

still looking for a really great dev environment for MacOSX

After all these years with Hypercard, I am still looking for a really great development environment. Should run on MacOSX. It would be nice, if cross platform (PalmOS, Symbian...). Revolution seems to be quite interesting, but far from perfect. Eventually I will try to get SK8 running under MacOSX. Maybe use SK8 as a basis for a future Hypercard...

my first wireless posting

Palm Tungsten W via GPRS seems to work well. Now if only blogspot could accept postings via email (or SMS).

Sanyo Digital Movie C1 arrived

This might be the future of camcorders and still video cameras. I tested the ultrasmall Panasonic SD-camcorder with 10times zoom last January and the only things missing were real MPEG4 files, not the crippled and proprietary MS-stuff and still pictures with more than VGA resolution. The Sanyo seems to be it: real MPEG4, 3 megapixel stills (10 times the Panasonic VGA resolution!). Flash and tripod adapter included. If Sanyo could do an enhanced version with 10 times zoom or more instead of the 6 times zoom, this might just be the perfect camera!

EyeTV Home arrived

Installed Ethernet cable from Mac to sleeping room, started the software and believe it or not: it works. Pretty amazing.

new iMac in September

One more reason to visit the AppleExpo in Paris, besides the Newton conference from 9/4 to 9/6/04.
