Did you get anything special for Christmas in the way of genealogy? I received an update on my software today. I use Brothers Keeper created by John Steed. It is shareware but it is a really good program.

My Christmas gift for the last 3 years is going to Samford in June for their weeklong genealogy conference. We have to register and pay in January, so it is my Christmas.

What did you get?

I think my gift to me, a bit later in the year, will be a netbook. As more and more places have wi-fi it would be handy to always be able to look something up. A laptop is fine but it is too big and too heavy to carry around all the time.

I was once up on things - what is a netbook?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A netbook is a light-weight, low-cost, energy-efficient, highly portable laptop suitable for web browsing, email and general purpose applications. To achieve their small form factor, low weight and affordability, netbooks offer fewer features, less processing power[1] and reduced ability to run resource-intensive operating systems.[1]

Though specifications and features of netbooks are highly variable, one report at the end of 2008 suggested the typical netbook featured a 3-lb weight, a 9-inch screen, a wireless Internet connectivity, Microsoft Windows XP, an Intel chip and a cost of less than $400.[2]

Netbooks are targeted at users increasingly accessing web-based applications � also known as Cloud computing[3] � that do not require intensive resources available on the client computer.[3]

Would that be like Google applications as well? I've heard of Cloud but can't put it in the right pocket.

It sounds perfect for the genealogist on the go. I wonder if you can use a small portable scanner with it.
