Don't journalists follow handtop news?

Sony_u750pLooks like CNET and the New York Times need to hire proofreaders who know how to use Google.

An article posted this morning at CNET’s CES Chronicles blog titled "Samsung selects Via for its UMPC" reveals that Samsung is now using Via processors. The author concludes the blurb by admitting that he "was not able to confirm what markets Samsung will sell this unit in." If only there were a Google+Search”>search engine out there that could solve this riddle! Perhaps then the Q1b, available for months and speculated about since April,  would have shown itself.

And then there’s the "A Personal Computer to Carry in a Pocket" article in the NYT. Published yesterday to solidify the much-deserved hype surrounding the OQO Model 02, the piece opens with "The world of desktop computing is finally going mobile." Finally going mobile? Pictured above is the Sony U750P handtop running Windows XP (1.1 GHz Pentium M, 512MB RAM) and sporting a 5-inch screen and 20GB hard drive. Release date? 2004.

Both articles provide positive exposure for the handtop market so I really shouldn’t complain, but given my real-life profession (editing), I can’t help it.
