Does anyone know enough about the host / client system on the Zaurus to tell me how it prevents damage when a client cable is plugged in.

With a client cable 5 volts is supplied from the host. This comes in the same pin as the 5 volt comes out of when a host cable is plugged in (I think). Why does this not cause a problem?

Reason for knowing.
I just bought a Nokia 770 and the USB native mode is client but it can be made into a host port. Given that the Zaurus does both at the same time and that the only difference between the two physically is the shape of the metal surround (small pliers and brute force fix that problem) I was going to look at making the 770 the same.

Is there anyone with an indepth knowledge of the TOmTOM boot sequence. I have what appears to be a blank tomtom go 300. I bought it as one of the ones with faulty voltage regulators, only the power LED worked when power was applied. Having ripped it to bits and looked all the voltages are fine, I can tell from the current draw that it is turning on, the current draw also tells me it's trying to do something but no screen and no noises. There is data buis activity on the processor and generally about the thing inside. I reckon it's flash is erased but I can't find squat about it on the net. Opentom gave me no clues.

I am probably looking for jtag information or serial console boot information or similar that will allow me to see what isn't going on.

Anyone got any links or reading about what laptops are available with transreflective displays. I am sick of hiding behind things and squinting in order to read my laptop outside.

I just spent a month in Indonesia installing wifi gear outside and configuring it was a nightmare with the sun.

As far as I can find there is only the OQO and at 5 inches it's a tad smaller than I need. I would ideally like 10 inch or so.

Does anyone have a Flybook and can you tell me if the touch screen is a passive resistive or an active like a wacom tablet.

The difference being that on the latter you can rest your hand on the screen when writing but with a passive resistive you can't.
