I don’t know how he did it (or does it), but the famous Michael Arrington of Techcrunch has managed to make the move from blogger to inventor. He’s teamed up with Louis Monier (former CTO of Alta Vista) to produce the ‘Crunchpad’. It’s a 12-inch touchscreen tablet device with a Via Nano processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of flash memory, a 4-cell battery, WiFi and a camera. Apparently, the Crunchpad is built for doing time sucking Internet activities (watching movies, surfing the Web, etc) and costs just about $200 to produce, which means a $300 retail price. Who knows if it will ever go to production, but my hat is fully off to Arrington.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
