Here is the gist of an article I read in LISnews from March 30th. Amazon’s amazing Kindle, and SONY’s amazing Reader will soon have some color competition! Meet the FLEPia! I want one of each of them. Oh, boy much fun!


From the LISNews article:

"Japanese electronics maker Fujitsu has stepped into the e-book fray with the a color e-paper mobile device aimed at consumers. Thin and lightweight like its competition the Kindle, Fujitsu Frontech’s awkwardly named FLEPia, is now on sale in Japan and will start shipping on April 20 for around $1,000.

Quick Tip to Print a Directory in Windows

Uncle Ersatz’ has a quick tip that you may not have known about, or have forgotten about:  how to print a directory –nicely formatted- from within your favorite browser.  This is pretty slick if I say so myself!

1. Go to the browser’s address bar and enter: “file:///c:/” (without the quotes). By-the-way, that’s three (-3-) forward slashes.

As in:
file c highlight

Then, you get something like this:
file c screen
You can move around in the directories very much as you can in an Explorer window.  And, they print as you see them.
