Nokia - Nokia Wireless Keyboard

Nokia - Nokia Wireless Keyboard Yet another thing to add to the long list of techy gadget stuff that I want and I don't even have a Nokia phone anymore. Imagine using this along with Mobile Messenger on a SmartPhone. Grom says he can't work out if it's cool or magnificently useless but he still wants one.

I would use hotmail and msn messenger more when mobile if it wasn't such a pain typing using txt input. It's useful for on trains but pretty useless while walking or driving. Would I really open that up in public and attempt to write messages? Probably. It's no worse than using a laptop and the batteries last a LOT longer.

Google Mars

How cool is this? The default view shows Olympus Mons just above and left of centre with an artificially coloured map showing elevation. You can use filters to see the map using visible light or infrared and scroll and zoom all over the place. The search functions are pretty cool too. Clicking on one of the 9 links or typing into the search box at the top of the page opens up a search results pane on the left wioth links to all kinds of extra information.

Web Comics

In the past I've occasionally mentioned a webcomic or two and that I didn't read them all that regularly. This is my guilty pleasure...
