How much data does this 3G stuff use?

So today I’ve been looking at the G1, and I love the idea of the thing even if I’m not convinced of the hardware yet. But I started wondering… how much data is all this connectivity going to use? And as such, how much is this going to cost me every month?

9 inch Asus Eee PC

9 inch Asus eee PC

It’s coming! 1024×600 on a 8.9″ display. Teh yum. I hope it’ll have a big software update as well, more linux goodness would be very welcome. But hey, as long as you’ll be able to throw any ol’ distro on it it’s the perfect tinker toy. I wonder how much bigger the whole thing is in comparison to the current model.

Amiga goes Asus eee pc and OLPC

Amiga Forever running on Asus eee pcAmiga Forever running on OLPCOLPC explained
Courtesy of Amiga Forever, who have screenshots of the upcoming Amiga Forever 2008 running on both the Asus eee pc and the OLPC. I have no idea what they specifically have planned for the 2008 release but I hope it comes with a bootable stripped down OS so you don’t need to have linux or windows pre-installed. Less overhead.
Looking at the screenshots I have now become interested in the OLPC as it obviously has a higher screen resolution (1200×900). Seeing as the project is meant to bring computers to the less fortunate there’s no way to get one at the moment, you can only donate. But for a while they had an option that if you donated one, you got one yourself as well, which is said to return eventually. Quirky little machine.

Multitouch interface

Check out this demo.

While touch sensing is commonplace for single points of contact, multi-touch sensing enables a user to interact with a system with more than one finger at a time, as in chording and bi-manual operations. Such sensing devices are inherently also able to accommodate multiple users simultaneously, which is especially useful for larger interaction scenarios such as interactive walls and tabletops.

Sounds nice, looks WAY better. The demo features several applications which are quite novel, I particularly liked the demo interaction with the swirly stuff (imagine using that to create art) and the section where they make a collage of photos, dragging them back and forth and dynamically resizing them on the fly.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
