1. Editor's Note: Be More Productive With Google, When Traveling

This weekend's coverage features a series of tips by Alex Wolfe on how to get the most mileage out of your Google search experience, from rolling out your own custom news feeds to leveraging Google to install gadgets for the Windows Vista operating system.

Let David know if you've found an ultraportable that works particularly well for you.
