OK readers. Thanks to everyone who alerted us to yesterday's "big" announcement from Transmeta. Don't find out more at the Transmeta Web site. But if you check it out you may note a step or two forward in the design of Transmeta's famously minimalist Web site. That's right, they've added a couple of email contacts: one for job-seekers, the other for OEMs, resellers and the like.

Computing industry demi-god and Transmeta staffer Linus Torvalds revealed most of what we know about Crusoe at a recent Comdex keynote. Here's the report we made at the time. And here's the message in the html source code on the Transmeta site - up since Comdex, and not since yesterday as I mistakenly reported earlier.

"Transmeta's policy has been to remain silent about its plans until it had something to demonstrate to the world. On January 19th, 2000, Transmeta is going to announce and demonstrate what Crusoe processors can do. Simultaneously, all of the details will go up on this Web site for everyone on the Internet to see. Crusoe will be cool hardware and software for mobile applications. Crusoe will be unconventional, which is why we wanted to let you know in advance to come look at the entire Web site in January, so that you can get the full story and have access to all of the real details as soon as they are available."

This is the last time I tangle with Transmeta watchers - I am temperamentally unsuited for watching paint dry, which renders me constitutionally incapable of following this company. ®
