I was doing a little upkeep around the site and noticed that Icon Tarot section was no longer working. It’s fixed now. So all of you that have been wondering lost without BeDope’s tarot to guide you can have your decisions once again guided by its’ prophecies.

Web Tablets 8 years later…

I got a real kick out of this post on /.:

“TechCrunch announced that they are planning to design their own $200 web tablet device. Quoting: ‘The idea is to turn it on, bypass any desktop interface, and go directly to Firefox running in a modified Kiosk mode that effectively turns the browser into the operating system for the device. Add Gears for offline syncing of Google docs, email, etc., and Skype for communication and you have a machine that will be almost as useful as a desktop but cheaper and more portable than any laptop or tablet PC.’ The aim is for the tablet to run on modified open source software, which will be released back to the community along with the specifications for the hardware.”

Sounds a lot like a Qubit BeIA tablet from about 8 years ago to me, sans the open source part. ;)
