Vappu balloon sellers in Helsinki

It’s Vappu  today, the most enjoyable day in Finland. Gifting a balloon is a custom here and buying one is expensive on the street, €25 is what I hear. Not surprising that lots of vendors are around already. 

Tech in a Madrid Café in 2003

Madrid Café 2003

This is what I used for on-the-go tech in 2003 sitting in a café in Madrid. A Psion 5mx and a brick Nokia mobile phone  The Psion had a great form factor that had a keyboard that was just big enough for touch-typing and small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. It also had the wonderful benefit of being distraction-free. 

Not forgetting the camera, a Canon Powershot S30. A remarkably pocketable device for the time.
