I also found that almost without exception, open-source Linux vendors were months ahead of Apple in fixing the same flaws.

italk-300.jpgChristopher and Greg DeSantis have produced an excellent video for a concept Apple phone/PDA.
The phone looks great, and the video has high production values. If/when Apple produce a phone/PDA, I hope it isn’t a million miles away from this. Check out the video on my blog. (Thanks to Conrad for bringing this to my attention.)

tomtom300-1sm.jpgThe TomTom GO 300 (MSRP US$499) is an economical Mac-compatible portable GPS receiver. If you’re looking for a GPS receiver for you car that costs less than a mortgage payment, then the GO 300 is worthy of a look.
The GO 300 has a built-in Bluetooth connection that allows you to connect your mobile phone to access TomTom PLUS services, i.e. Real time traffic, weather and extra downloads such as detailed city maps, additional voices and points of interest (POIs). New customers receive a one month free trial of TomTom PLUS services. I was not able to test this service because it doesn’t work with my Treo 650 mobile phone.
