Just found this interesting Zaurus on sale on Craiglist, btw I'm not affiliated in any way with the seller, just in case anyone from the San Francisco area is interested:

Hi,

I have put online a mirror of the old Crow's page from archive.org, together with the two 5000D/5500 archives:

Unfortunately the cackorom-Applications.zip file seems to be not available on the net anymore, has anyone a copy of it?

Hi,

first of all, happy Easter everyone, I hope you all are having a great weekend! On a (somewhat) related matter, I wonder if there has ever been one or more easter eggs hidden in any of the Z's ROMs. After a search in the forum, I only found a reference about them in the OpenZaurus' CardFS ROMs, though no description of what they might be, has anybody seen them?

An interesting article on ComputerWorld about the decline of the laptops, which in the future might be replaced by docking stations for smartphones, and the re-emerging of the clamshell PDAs. The Gemini is mentioned (and with "the smartphone-size PC (...) in the gaming space" I guess they are referring to the GPD devices), plus it seems Apple has a patent for a clamshell iPhone with a bendable (!) screen, too.

Hi,

I'd like to ask a question to all of you Win users: how confortable is the keyboard to type on it? On my Akita, I can type on it normally (albeit slowly) without having to check that I have not accidentally pressed any of the nearby keys. I have in the past written entire documents on it. On the Win however, from what I have seen on the videos and from the comments, you need to type using the tip (or the side) of the fingers, since the keys are not big enough and not distanced from each other to allow typing with the full finger. Since I'll probably use the keyboard of my next clamshell a lot, I'm now more inclined to wait for the Gemini rather than get a Win, since I have seen that its keyboard has fewer, and thus much bigger keys, and it seems to be much more suited for frequent typing.

Can anybody confirm this?
