Nano review, Army & Dell

In Brief: Giving the new iPod nano four out of four stars, the Boston Herald says that the aluminum body of the lighter and thinner player resolves the previous-generation's susceptibility to scratching and that in some cases the battery may last longer than the 24 hours touted by Apple..... The iKEY Plus, due in October for $240, is a small recorder requires an external microphone or RCA audio source, but can record 320Kbps MP3 or uncompressed WAV to any attached USB mass storage, including iPods.... The early bird fee for Big Nerd Ranch Europe's PostgreSQL Bootcamp, scheduled for mid-November in Germany, is available through September 29.... Dell, who received a NASDAQ delisting notice last week, got the go-ahead last week on a big Army supply contract in which the Defense Department agreed to buy computers, displays, printers and peripherals from Dell and others--that could be worth $5 billion over 10 years.

    Oh no, not the Army

    The Navy/Marine Corps has long term contract for Dell computers, too. Not unexpected but bummers for the Mac. A typical business end user shouldn't be affected much by the platform in place, but I would expect that similar to my home Windows machine, things would be a lot faster w/o the anti-spyware and anti-virus apps running in the background either at the server end or at the end user PC.

    No wonder...

    the Army is as ineffective as it is!
