but getting warmer. 
And apparently taking good advantage of X's strengths.

>From the review of

"The Black Dog devices (aka "Dogs") are essentially 
tiny but complete desktop Linux "servers" measuring 
3.5 x 1.75 x 0.5 inches, and weighing 1.6 ounces. 
They have an SD/MMC slot for memory expansion or the 
addition of SDIO peripheral devices. Other hardware 
features include a biometric fingerprint scanner, and 
a USB client port compatible with USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 
ports, which are about half as fast as 100BaseT Ethernet, 
White notes.

The Dogs are based on a single PowerPC 405 Delta embedded 
processor and 64MB of RAM (Realm also has a dual-processor 
model under development for its enterprise product line). 
The company calls the Dogs "servers" because they create 
an Ethernet-over-USB network with the host PC, and serve 
applications that are accessed using the host PC's KVM 
device functions."


Cheers, Kurt.
