Elonex WebBook

379 euros from the Carphone Warehouse.
80GB hard disk and 512MB of RAM. (Compared to 4GB solid state disk for eee-PC).
2.5 hrs battery life.
Lovely small form factor PC.
Nice keyboard but needs larger space bar and backspace key.
No Firefox or Skype (preinstalled on eee-PC).
Nice big hard-disk (but not solid state).
Heavier than eee-PC.

A great ultra portable PC if you need a lot of hard disk space.

Track your carbon footprint with your Phone

Carbon Diem (Carpe Diem, geddit) will track and report and automatically calculate your you carbon footprint using your mobile phone. Its 100% accurate on trains and planes and about 65-75% accurate on cars and buses. The main thing is you don’t have to spend the rest of life typing stuff into a manual carbon calculator.
