Computers are rapidly diminishing in size, but if you would have shown me this computer, I would have assumed that it’s a power adapter. I would have been wrong, because it’s a tiny computer masquerading as a power plug. There have been other small Linux computers out there, but the fact that it’s available for $99 right now is also a marvel. That’s good, because Marvell, the company who makes this thing, will soon announce a $50 price drop.

Smartphones are a dime a dozen. Unless you have an iPhone or a Crackberry, you are still looking for that oh so elusive perfect phone. There are always things that you’d like your perfect phone to do that your present phone doesn’t do. You either love them or hate them or are still stuck in-between.

If you thought that the iPhone concept was something really recent, you’re going to be really surprised! You’d think that the concept was pretty recent, since the original iPhone came out in 2007. However, that’s not the case. Would you believe that something like an iPhone came out way back in 1983?
