Yahoo in the Palm of your hand

Under the deal, Palm handhelds will come preinstalled with wireless versions of Yahoo email and instant-messaging applications.

It is the first time Yahoo has bundled its web-based services with handheld computers, the portal giant said.

The deal means that Palm users will be able to send, receive and delete email from their Yahoo accounts.

Palm's latest handheld computers include a colour version of the Palm III, the Palm IIIc, and a new operating system, Palm OS3.5. The units come with 8MB of memory, upgradeable flash-ROM memory, an infrared port, and a rechargeable lithium battery.

Palm Computing stock soared to more than $US165 per share in its first day of trading on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange earlier this month.

Since the listing, Palm has been capitalised at more than $US32 billion, considerably more than the value of its parent company, 3Com, capitalised at $US23.85 billion.

Palm Computing closed on the Nasdaq at $US51.56 yesterday.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
