5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Psion is climbing into bed with LineOne, as part of a move to make the handheld company more Net-friendly. LineOne will supply content for Psion's new portal site, Planet Psion. The site already has content from the Met Office. Psion wants the portal site to become a free ISP in its own right (with LineOne providing the infrastructure). The way things are going these days, it could "create" far greater shareholder value by building an online community of Psion users, than by building Psion hardware. Screen size and processing speed are obvious brakes on the amount and kind of data Psion machines can handle. So, taking a leaf from the Palm Psalm book, Psion is tailoring all content to best suit its handheld computers. A spokesman for the company said: "This is only one step in our strategy for the Internet. Mobile communications shouldn't be about processors and memory, it should be about having access to information." ®
