Google Takes Over the World, Amazon fights back with time travel

Yada yada, Google has a number of cool life-changing new tools out there - Google Local Mobile edition allows you to search for local results and get driving directions from Google maps on your cell phone and PDA. Also, they want your video. (most likely to create a race of clones is my guess)

In the meantime, Amazon is fighting back and apparently has invented a time machine. They've managed to make my "new products" page circa 1998 with the introduction of the brand new Palm III.

In more recent news, PalmOne announced the Tungsten E2 handheld today. While nothing terribly exciting, it does improve upon a very popular model. Hopefully, this won't be too far behind...
