For pure audio, one of the best out there is the Cowon iAudio 7 . Highlights - Tiny - Massive LiPoly battery rated at 60 hours - plays back: MP3, Ogg, WMA, WAV, FLAC - high quality audio - UMS support - Jet Audio is an excellent media manager for those who are not inclined to organize by folder.

Personally, I think that the Nokia N800 series of internet tablets looks better than the iPod touch for WWW browsing over WiFi. Bigger screen, user removable batteries, camera, Linux based (already a tidy little group of applications starting to crop up).

My only current project is a luggable spare parts computer that I've nicknamed "Tomato: Rem!x" (cookie if you get the reference). Maybe I'll post pics after of I finish revision 2.

The only reason I would consider the purchase of said phone is because the otterbox cases for it make it look absolutely sick . (This is counter balanced by my extreme hatred for Apple's obsession with the disposable, sealed products model. As far as I am concerned, all parts that suffer significant...

A mirror...for the end of your gun? Like the military uses, perhaps? Smart one we got here! :P Never heard of that, doesn't make much sense either. What if you want to fire the gun while the sun is behind you? For crying out loud, when you shoot AR for sport, you black the front site post just to a...

To build a counter-cryptographic quantum computer, for um... "Research Purposes".

I own a Liteon standalone recorder (LVW-5115ghc+), and have mixed feelings about it. Pros: takes pretty much all writable DVD flavors (barring DVD-RAM, mores the pity) very easy to use fairly reliable for both live and timed recordings Playback is very good Discs tend to have good compatibility with...

The easiest and fastest way is probably to burn it onto either 3 CD-Rs or a DVD+/-R, unless you have a reasonably fast UMS device (USB HDD, USB flash disk, etc), or can hook up a slave HDD internally.
