Travelling light

I have long been a fan of Japanese technology. There is a small matter of a language barrier, which I worked on pretty hard for several years, and there is a long plane ride between here and there, so it is hard to go over and check things out. They sure have neat stuff.

But has the coolest Japanese stuff available right here in North America. This posting is being put together on a Panasonic W5 subnotebook, weighing 2 1/2 pounds, with a battery life of 8 real life hours, and a built in DVD recorder and player. I have had this little gem for about a year, it is first class. It has been replaced with the W7 series, as far as I can tell. But what a treat to be able to go anywhere with a real computer. Way cool.
