PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Cheap Android tablets are all over the place, and generally not any good. They often have resistive touch screens instead of capacitive ones, are slow, or have no access to the Android Market. For Ice Cream Sandwich, MIPS Technologies is trotting out its existing Honeycomb tablet - which, you guessed it, uses a MIPS processor - licensed to Ainovo. For some reason, that makes this $99 tablet with capacitive screen kind of interesting.

Having a Playstation or PS2 (oh, only the best-selling console in history, overall; and PS1: 2nd best-selling among non-handhelds), also an early PS3 model with hardware "emulation" of PS2, or maybe one of many consumer WiFi routers & NAS devices, brings geek points?
Hm, OK then.

Didn't Thom have, IIRC, a PS2 at some point? That's two MIPS processors right there... (the 2nd taking over as a main one in PS1 mode)
