In a press release on their web site, Kodak has announced that the EasyShare Picture Viewer will be available in stores worldwide this week at an MSRP of $149.

I had a chance to get my hands on a palmOne LifeDrive. The LifeDrive is a new "mobile manager" from palmOne that includes a 4GB Microdrive. Not only does it do the usual PIM functions, like calendaring, todos, contacts, but the increased storage opens up other options like image, movie and music storage and playback. Another option with the large storage capacity is to put the LifeDrive in "Drive Mode", attach it to your PC with a USB cable and you have a 4GB removable drive where you can copy files back and forth with or use as backup.
