oh my goodness.
Tech geekerie is coming out my ears.

Firstly, the Cowon / iAudio MP3 player I've been waiting for (for months and months) finally launched.
http://onlinestore.jetaudio.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=60
Not only did it launch, but it plays video (color screen) as well as MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, etc.
And for the same price (retail) as the ipods.
with video.
and live copying of data from other USB devices, like cameras.
Oh, and it looks cooler too.
How I do indeed want one. But I must wait, monies are not free.


Secondly, a piece of free software that blows my mind. I'm totally setting this up ASAP.

GEEKS TAKE NOTE! krues8dr, nata5, busytoby, and anyone else with multiple systems laying around, I'm lookin at you.
http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/index.html

This amazing chunk of software emulates a Keyboard/Mouse across multiple computers, as ONE EXTENDED DESKTOP.
IE: Two winxp boxes, two monitors. You slide the mouse off the side of one, it goes to the other.
^_^

Also supports any mix of Windows, Linux, and OSX(mostly)
o_o

Also you can copy/paste across computers with different OSes.
O_O

Damned straight.

but but but, simple! and minimalist!

Yeah, it's designed as a better KVM, not as a remote tool. I wouldn't even begin to try to use it for systems that weren't on my desk.

Most of the computers where I work have that one desktop thing. I do have to say its mighty cool.

Ah, but that's just on one computer. I'm doing that right now.

This lets you do it across multiple computers running different OSes.

Re: almost forgot!

don't know.
>_<
Rumored price for the 60 is $450

I'm torn between trying to save up for a 30gb asap, or saving a little longer for the 60gb when it's finally released.
Of course, the Karma2 is supposed to be announced later this summer, so perhaps I'll start saving for the 60 and wait till the Karma's announced to make a decision...

yes, but if you have two desktop systems, this way trumps a kvm. ^_^
