HP Tech Support gives you some tips on backing up your files. We take a look at HP's new 1.3-inch 20MB hard drive -- it's sure to set standards for size, power consumption, and economy, but will we see it in a 95LX any time soon? The new SkyStream Mobile Data Link Receiver is shipping. And you can win a FREE RAM Card by telling HP your story!

Hewlett Packard Develops A Rugged 1.3" Hard Disk Drive

Hewlett-Packard has introduced the world's first 1.3" hard disk drive, a device the size of a small matchbox. The initial version of what HP is calling the "Kittyhawk Personal Storage Module" (PSM) has a formatted capacity of 21.4 MB, equivalent to 14,389 typed pages. HP hopes to begin shipping the Kittyhawk to OEM clients in August (OEMs use HP and other manufacturers parts to make their computers).

HP 95LX SUPPORT: CompuServe

The success of the 95LX and the general popularity of HP handhelds has prompted CompuServe to create a new forum for HP Handheld devices.
