I’m in Hong Kong on business this week and happened across a very Mac-like NEC laptop. It’s kind of like a cross between an iMac of yore and a TiBook, but nowhere near as cool as either. I thought you’d enjoy the pics nonetheless, note the keyboard, right out of a Ti. Click into the story for two pictures.

Following closely on the heels of XM Radio (launched on 25 September 2001) Sirius Satellite Radio today announced the commercial availability of their satellite radio service. It works like this: You buy a car stereo that is “satellite ready,” (either XM or Sirius), a satellite tuner and a small antenna and for a monthly fee of ~US$10 you can receive up to 100 commercial-free channels of digital stereo in your vehicle. XM Radio offers over 100 stations with about a third with six minutes or less of commercials per hour.
