AMD's “PIC”s, short for Personal Internet Communicator, embedded PCs designed to be super-cheap to help bring Internet access to people all around the world, are going to be closer to home than we originally thought. In fact, your local Radio Shack
may have one. They aren't intended to be performance machines, of course, and are in fact just another way of saying “E-Machine”, intended solely for Internet access. For $299 though, a smart enthusiast could probably build something better – Maybe. It's still very interesting, and I'd like to see what people end up doing with these.
