…You can make your own ultraportable?

Palm Pilot Notebook

Sure, the Asus Eee PC is small, and the MacBook Air is powerful, but what about making your very own lightweight portable computer out of an old Palm Pilot a keyboard, and a copy of the Guinness Book of World Records?

It might not be small and powerful, but it is cheap, and the DIY factor alone should give you plenty of bragging rights at your next Starbucks laptop spec shootout.

…lonelysandwich loved Macworld?


By now, if you’re a techie, you’ve probably read just about every Macworld post in existence.

However, lonelysandwich’s take on the whole event is a bit…different; so if you haven’t already stumbled upon his writing, then definitely check it out.

Will the MacBook Air play the role of the Cube? Is the Air a “conceptual shift in personal computing”? Is the Air a “proof-of-concept”, making data weightless and connectivity ubiquitous?

lonelysandwich seems to think so, so be sure to click through to find out why.

…The manila folder is the new hot office accessory?

Good ideas often come in pairs.

Manila Case

For instance: Gizmodo loved the fact that Jobs decided to pull the MacBook Air out of a manila folder so much that they mocked up the Manila Case (with optional Red Kabbalah String) as the ultimate and equally overpriced accessory to your new AirBook.


Not to be outdone, Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans created the AirMail, an actual laptop sleeve that will be handmade out of upholstery-grade vinyl and lined with fuzzy, soft fleece to give the appearance of a manila envelope with the protection of a sleeve.

Ahh Steve; everything you touch turns to gold.
