When I was a kid, I loved those slot-track racers. You know, you have some plastic race track with these little electric cars that fly off the track when you go around the curves too fast? Now you can re-live that heady experience with RallyTrophy!
A couple of cool gadgets spotted from slashdot: the Handspring Treo is a combination PDA and cell phone. There’s another PDA/phone combo called the HipTop, which runs Java and also has options for a camera and MIDI synth. Wow. And lastly, there’s a review at Tom’s Hardware of 3Com’s new NJ100 Network Jack — a wallplate jack with a built-in 4-port ethernet switch.

the same thought: This holiday season, as we laugh and eat and shop
and enjoy friends and family, our soldiers are in Afghanistan
