The rumor is that HP is killing the HP Slate running Windows 7 (no I will not buy one with the WebOS, if I were changing to anything it would be Andriod for the fact it will probably take over unless something happens). But now I found that the ExoPC is due out in September (7th is the rumor, one day after my birthday). It looks okay from what I can see but has anyone heard much about it yet? I like the idea of a 11.6 inch screen, but the five hour battery life is not that hot. Wish they would have had removable batteries so I could pack extras!

So the banner at the top of CodeProject that displays advertisements, it's typically technology adds for charting components or VS 2010 or whatever. But I've noticed an ad lately for a website for "modern fathers" aka fathers of kids of broken homes. Why do you think they would advertise that here? Is there some statistic that says most programmers are divorced fathers? Or people who use CodeProject are?
