The OQO Model 01 Has Come…Almost

OQO is now taking pre-orders for their first model, Model 01. For those of you wondering what an OQO is, click the link at the beginning of this article. In short, it’s in between a notebook computer and a PocketPC. The OQO is a fascinating device designed by the brains behind the original PowerBook G4, and you really have to see it and read its specs to truly appreciate it. The OQO is available with either Windows XP Home or Pro. Sorry, no OSX. I’d love to look into one, but I’ll be too busy setting up my new iMac.

New Header Image

Incase anyone is wondering, the new image inside the header image is MainFrame, by Brock Lee (an excellent fan-artist). The image background was replaced with the “Matrix Code”, which was created with Rick’s Matrix Code Retooled tutorial. Thanks go out to both of these dedicated artists.
