FREE IS GOOD
"The 64 Mb version is what I carry on my keychain - It's a great auxiliary drive companion to my larger capacity model I keep in my laptop bag. With two rebates from PC Connection and Iomega, it's free," says Kodner.
More cheap deals: PalmOne is offering an English Dictionary with Thesauraus, by Paragon Technologie GMBH for $2.81 (normally $20). It has more than 140,000 entries, and is designed for Palm OS handhelds. It includes a "word of the day" feature and a flash card quiz to help you learn new words. To get it at the 85% discount, just enter the promo code ENGLDICT at checkout.
What's Hot? Meanwhile, Jobst Elster of the Envision Agency checks in from Cocoa Beach, Fla., puzzled about how to find free wireless hotspots.
"I can’t seem to find a wireless directory anywhere online, most of it is word-of-mouth, and all the popular spots (e.g., Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc.) are all fee-based. The same goes for airports and knowing who provides free wi-fi access."
Anybody know of a list of free wifi hot spots? Holler and I'll list them: firstname.lastname@example.org. (I've started a box to list hot spots and wireless networks -- see right nav bar.)
In the meantime, Cisco Systems has discontinued its own list of hotspots, recommending instead the WiFi Alliance's roster.
Speaking of wifi, I do recommend the Hilton family of hotels -- many (esp. the Garden Inns and Hampton Inns) are offering free high speed access, and many are converting to wireless.
