Of the List, I recommend Number 1:

1. WordWeb

    Using this application, we can look up definitions, synonyms and antonyms without having to open a web browser. It has a hot key 
so you can mouse-over the word you want to analyze and 
hit the key combination. 
This is a brilliant free application.

MC2 Post 713 Yes, It's Another WIFi SD Memory Card

But Wait, There's More!

We've Seen This Before in Digital Cameras

But You Still had to Connect the Camera, with a
USB cable, to Up Load the Pictures .

Not Any More

( Here's the Press Release )

Toshiba 8GB Wi-Fi SD Memory Card

Toshiba 8GB Wi-Fi SD Memory Card Today, Toshiba and Singapore-based Trek 2000 International Ltd. announced the development of a new Wi-Fi wireless SD card. The Wi-Fi SD card will feature an 8GB capacity, 802.11 wireless transfer rates, JPEG and RAW image compatability, and can communicate to  a Wi-Fi environment, a server, or with the same type of card in another camera (on a one-to-one basis) where users can exchange photographs quickly and easily.

Toshiba and Trek 2000 International Ltd. will be launching the “Standard Promotion Forum for Memory Cards Embedding Wireless LAN”, a forum that will invite digital camera manufacturers and other interested parties in promoting the card, to exchange ideas of technical information toward establishing standard specifications and expanding the use of the card.


It Seems Really Cool, and it Is.
But with the Jaw Dropping Specs

This Changes Everything, again.
 I see prices for

like the Toshiba 8GB Wi-Fi SD,

Dropping pretty quickly.

MC2 Post 711 The Killing Of The WEB PAGE by ELO

When Is Too Much Too Much?

Blogging us to Death

The Format to seemed so Cool just a short time ago is clogging our Media Centric shorelines.

Example A:

This is an article about: Google deletes two Android applications remotely.

But where is it in the page above?

Let me help you by Xing the parts that have nothing to do

with the story you wanted to read.

As you can see, only a small portion on the left side of the page is the actual information I was looking for, buried by AD's and boiler plate froth that the Web designers think are more important than the article.

What is wrong with this is that it looks like another media format that is hanging on by a thread, the newspapers.

ELO the Wingman.
