That is one of the things that has disappointed me. I didn't buy it to print out
photos but I have had a couple that I wanted to print. The book says that the 2
megapixel pictures are of appropriate size for 8x11 pictures. When I take them
over to Kinko's and print them using the Sony Print Station it issues a warning
that the images will be of a low resolution. While they don't look horrible they
don't look amazing either.

Oh well, I guess I will have to wait until I can afford a real camera before
printing out too many pictures.

I used to be interested in Windows NT, but the more I see of it the more it
looks like traditional Windows with a stabler kernel. I don't find anything
technically interesting there. In my opinion MS is a lot better at making money
than it is at making good operating systems.  -- Linus Torvalds
