“Cell phone maker Nokia has decided to enter the Internet
appliance market, and they’re basing the software driving their

the potentially huge set-top market out of their pipe, to leave it
wide open for AOL’s own set-tops, which will be running Linux.”

“Interested in something you can buy next month? Sony says
they’ll be first to market with laptops using Transmeta’s
Crusoe.”
