The open-source browser offers features not found in Palm’s stock Blazer browser, including a tabbed interface (currently limited to three tabs) and a built-in RSS reader.

Is there magic in the number 48? Does this number hold any significance in your future success? Speaker Don Crowther suggests that there is. In his presentation at the NSA Summer Symposium, Don told the audience that 48 minutes is the magic number. Here’s how it works… Set a timer for 48 minutes.
