For this week's installment of the weekly Crave giveaway, we've got a hot one: the HP Mini 110 Netbook. That's right, you're looking at your very own Netbook. Not that it's all that expensive to go out and buy one, but hey, it's a mini laptop and it never hurts to have one of those lying around.
While this may not be quite as nice as HP's higher-end Mini 5101, the Mini 110 does have a lot in common with that model, including a relatively roomy keyboard. (Read editor Dan Ackerman's full … Read more

Two weeks, two guests! We're on a roll here as we welcome our second guest in two weeks, Senior Editor for Crave, Leslie Katz.
Leslie comes on to discuss what it's like working with the Martin and Lewis of the tech world (according to Brian Cooley), aka Dong and I. We chat about the joys and sorrows--mostly Leslie's sorrows--of attempting to edit the stories we write. And by "write," I mean copy and paste from press releases.
Also, magic wands enter the discussion somehow as Dong and I are forced to answer the "what … Read more

Editor Lori Grunin writes that the "Pro" version of the Eye-Fi adds three key features: "Support for raw file transfers, the capability to connect directly to a computer via an ad-hoc wireless connection, and selective file transfer.
