You think that price is bad? Get this, the Thinkpad X series baseline model starts at $1300. Boy, whoever priced that one must surely be feeling embarrassed now, why would anyone buy it over the Wal-Mart notebook...

Or maybe, with the GPS, navigation software, camera, and the fact that it weights roughly 200 grams and fits in your pocket, it could be that the N810 isn't really competing with the Wal-mart notebook at all.

Submission + - Pirate Bay tries to buy Sealand

iamdrscience writes: "Those crazy Swedes are at it again — the fellows from The Pirate Bay have created a fundraising website with the hope of buying Sealand and creating a copyright-free nation. If this sounds a bit far fetched to you, don't worry, they have a backup plan:
Plan B: If we do not get enough money required to buy the micronation of Sealand, we will try to buy another small island somwhere and claim it as our own country (prices start from USD 50 000).
Of course!"

Our informal mission is to improve the love life of operators worldwide. -- Peter Behrendt, president of Exabyte
