Hmm. Small world. I think I worked with the Toshiba folk
involved in this (the one I was involved with had things like
a flat panel memory upgrade you could connect to the back of
the device, and a similar design for HDD). They never got
the design buttoned down...

I worked mostly on the application side: did a viewer, and
spec'd out a link manager, and www proxy.
