NOW, THAT'S SOME BUILT-IN OBSOLESENCE

Last week: Microsoft's secret Origami project was an all-singing, all-dancing iPod killer

Today: Microsoft's Origami project turns out to be a clunky, chunky monkey. Too small to be used in lieu of a laptop, too slow and too large to comfortably replace a handheld games unit, a PDA or an MP3 player, and needing to suckle at a national grid nipple every two and a bit hours making it useless for any trip further than your local Sainsburys, if this is what Microsoft have sent to slaughter the iPod they might need to think about trying the Order of Taraka next time.

I'm not sure it's fair to say it's slow and at 60Gb is better than any PDA out there. The size of the screen makes it one of the best bits of mobile DVD viewing options without having to lug about a small laptop. And as it runs wireless, you can blog away while listening to your tunes...
