I was at Apple today and was given one of their new lightweight aluminum mini-notebooks. Surprisingly it has a small fixed amount of storage and uses a pen input device. I have put photos on my Flickr page

What does the dollar sign before the word HOME mean ?

Simon said...

It's an indication that the word following the dollar is an environment variable. In this case, $HOME is the variable that tells UNIX shells where the user's home directory is:


MacBookPro:~ spride$ echo $HOME
/Users/spride

I notice you've made no mention of backlighting. Can we expect illumination to be included, or marketed as an accessory?

Well, it uses a revolutionary reflective technology that gives paper-white screens and inky black characters, at a crispness and a resolution never before seen on a portable sub-notebook. A massive bonus of the new technology is that it consumes no onboard power at all. I don't know how they do it.
