With snoring features, and dodgy marketing claims that the new Zire handheld beats a paper organizer ("It's easy and fast to find stuff") the $99 US pricetag looks like a dubious deal. The system includes a rechargeable battery, but not a desktop cradle. It only has 2MB of RAM, and a non-backlit monochrome screen, which relegates the Zire to a straight-up organizer and not much else.

  Bites: SCOOTERIFFIC

  • Ginger, now known as Segway is a scooter. The only pictures I could find so far are with this ABC TV story and this Time online story. It's a self-balancing scooter (as predicted) and will cost about $3000. Of course, nobody will be able to drive these things until cities change laws to allow small, lightweight, motorized vehicles on the streets. And then there's the issue of where to park the thing.
  • From the land of giant robots, word that Japan is going to allow human-animal hybrid clones. [story@ananova.com] Sounds very healthy. Congratulations, Japan.
  • JennyJuice is the site of Toronto illustrator/webhead Jennifer McCracken. In addition to her own sassy style, she's also hosts some pieces from one of my favorite painters, Tracy Custodio.
