Have you taken a look at Google Finance yet? I think *that's* where they may
have taken a wrong turn. Try descending to the level of an individual stock.
Lo and behold! It's bloat which requires modern browsers too. As usual,
invalid (X)HTML, but what else could you ever expect from Google? 8 years
with the same simplistic front page were not a sufficient period of time to
do some 'housekeeping'.

Why resort to the Pocket PC (Microsoft's Windows CE) comparsion? I have used
my Palm to play MP3's since 2004. With some large-yet-cheap SD cards which
weigh _less than a gram_, you could store around 4 GB (per card). Nice,
brightly-lit display with a stylus and far more. Much cheaper than an iPod

I'll have a look. One good thing that Google did was making videos
interoperable. I remember the initial announcement very clearly...


YouTube have had a similar impact since.
