"ZF Linux Devices is attempting to resurrect the free PC
movement by cutting costs like never before."
"The 5-year-old company, which makes a low-cost microprocessor
called the MachZ, has developed a blueprint for an inexpensive PC
called the Z-Port. The company promises to license the design to
interested Internet service providers for free."
"Several companies will use MachZ in portable devices, including
a handheld credit card transaction machine, Feldman said. A company
in Japan will use the MachZ to build a Linux-based office server
for sharing files and Internet access. Yet another company will use
the chip inside a digital camera to process digital images without
the assistance of a desktop PC, Feldman said. And one other company
is building a residential gateway with MachZ. The device will plug
into a telephone line, establish an Internet connection and allow
multiple PCs to share that connection using Bluetooth, the
short-range wireless networking technology."
