Silverlight

SilverlightMix07 started yesterday, Microsoft’s developer oriented conference, so the pipes are pushing a lot of Microsoft bits this week. Silverlight, Microsoft’s Flash/Flex/Apollo competitor, is capturing the bulk of the attention. Trying to figure out what Silverlight is all about? Check out these links.

Swissbit – SwissMemory USB Victorinox Multiple Choice

Swissbit Swissmemory USB Victorinox Datasheet PDF

I’m not a big fan of USB flash drives – there are a lot of others ways to move big files around and they usually feel too fragile to be trusted. The Swissbit Swissmemory USB Victorinox caught my attention on Engadget because it looks cool and it sports a 2GB capacity – see the press release. Still not a fit for my needs but I can see why students and travelers might like it.

They’re including the usual scissors, knife, nail file, and screw driver on the rubyRED and retroALOX versions, while the rubyRED version — which is looking a tad chubby these days — also adds a ballpoint pen and an LED light for extra geek cred. You can even pop out the drive part for flying, since the TSA isn’t so hot on knives these days, or just make a run for it at the security gate and see how far you get.
