Want to travel really light? Consider travelling with a Palm handheld instead of a beefy PowerBook. Jeff Carlson looks at what you'll need to make it a reality. Also, Brady Johnson passes on a collection of sites that provide information and tools for combatting spam. Finally, Apple releases firmware and Ethernet updates for current Macs, and we note the releases of Eudora 4.3.2, Spring Cleaning 3.5, and AMUG's 3.2 GB shareware DVD.
