PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Today the new Xperia Tablet starts hitting doorsteps and store shelves. And how do we mark this momentous occasion? Well... Sony engineer Takuya Inaba ripped apart the gear and explained what's inside. Okay, more like gently opened. Either way, if you love geeking out on parts, then this is the article for you." Sony - or, well, at least its mobile department - is starting to get very cosy with us on the geek side. I approve - although the company has a long way to go before it cleared its name.

RE: Bearing the scars of Windows ME...

I suspect WindowsME scars will be around, about as long as the scars I got when I was an 8 year old riding my Banana-Seated Schwinn bicycle down the local elementary school slide... crashing at the bottom and gouging out my knuckles and fingers on a bolt that stuck out from the bike. I rode the bike home, bleeding the whole way. Of course, my Mom freaked and took me to the emergency room.

I'm 44 now and they don't look like they are going away anytime soon. I really learned something useful, to make sure I pull up at the bottom when landing like that. As the next time, I was able to ride down and keep riding.

I was the envy of the school yard, until "D.J." got an early BMX style bike for Christmas and did a wheelie down the slide in the spring... *CURSE YOU D.J.*

My Schwinn wouldn't do a wheelie easily.
