Documents To Go Professional Edition
Modify Office Docs on Palm
The latest office-in-your-pocket product from DataViz goes beyond just viewing desktop documents on your Palm PDA by allowing you to actually update Word and Excel documents on the handheld device.

The word-processing component of Documents To Go Professional supports rich editing features you'd expect in a desktop application like bold, italic, underline, justifications, indentations, numbered or bulleted lists.

However, DataViz has taken the spreadsheet application beyond the basics you'd expect on a Palm. Not only can you edit cells and recalculate a single page spreadsheet, you can import more complicated multi-page workspaces as well.

Features:

- View/edit Microsoft Word and Excel files
- Formatting features:
    bold, italic, underline
    justifications, indentations
    bullets and numbers.
- Spreadsheet features:
    multiple sheets
    editing and recalculation
- Requires Palm OS 3.0  

 


Intel Deep Forest
Concept desktop PC
What looks like a sixties lunchbox, but has phenomenal computing power? The answer is Intel’s concept prototype of a small, high performance computer system code-named “Deep Forest”. This design combines the power of the Intel Pentium 4 architecture in a space saving chassis. It features high performance graphics for Internet access and multimedia applications.

The most unusual feature of the Deep Forest is that chassis is sealed. Manufacturers can configure options using the low profile AGP4X slot and CNR card slot. End users can attach up to seven USB devices directly, without requiring a hub.

The Intel Deep Forest concept desktop PC also:

  • can be operated either horizontally in a desktop configuration or vertically as a micro tower. It’s the user’s choice.

  • has a built-in 10/100 Ethernet LAN connection

  • displays graphics with the low profile ATI Radeon AGP4X DVI compliant graphics adapter

  • manages its power consumption and can “Suspend to RAM”. It is ACPI 1.0b compliant.

  • was jointly developed with Hewlett-Packard

  • proves that high performance can be packaged in a small chassis

  • utilizes a front to back airflow, which helps cool the 1,500 MHz Pentium 4 processor. Fan speed is actively controlled.

  • features the Intel i850 chipset

  • is powered by an external 25V, 120W power supply

  • measures about 10"x 13"x 4"
