Psion went bust on their "NetBook" a long time ago. I don't know how they can claim a copyright on a defunct product and a generic name. I think I'll go out and patent "iToilet" so I can cash in one day.

If they had developed the 7 with a clamshell keyboard and let users be able to install an OS (in effect, making it a netbook), Archos with that beautiful screen would be sitting pretty. Instead they got caught off guard and all the sales are going to the netbooks (a registered trademark of Psion ;) ).

Psion claims it was never defunct. I think they waited too long. I think even they forgot they had a "netbook". I have a Tablet PC and that thing rocks with Windows 7.

You can't patent a name at all, but you could certainly claim it is a trademark. You'd be amazed what you can trademark -- I believe Dunlop, for example, has trademarked ``The smell of roses on tyres''.

I've just updated the firmware to the latest but before I did that there was nothing shown in the "all by date" folder. After the firmware update it ran an "updating ARCLibrary" process and it now does that every time I add new files.

I'd guess something had gone wrong with the library process; is there a way you can force it to rebuild the library?
