HP's Vivienne Tam Edition netbook gets real, coming this December

No clue if HP will be sticking with the Digital Clutch moniker (wouldn't be a bad choice, actually), but one's thing for certain: it's teaming up with Vivienne Tam for a highly decorated netbook. The shot you're looking at above is just about all we have to go on, but obviously this one won't appeal to those who aren't into vivaciousness, vividness and, um, flora.
We are told that it'll be available this December with an Intel Atom processor within (which is pretty noteworthy given HP's current relationship with VIA), but everything else is being closely concealed for now -- even though Atom typically equals 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz clock speed and an 80GB HDD. But hey, a woman has to have her secrets, right?
[Thanks, Ronald]

Tim Tam cookies are coming to America

Arnott’s is sharing their famous Tim Tam recipe with their US sister-company Pepperidge Farm in hopes of getting Americans to love the chocolate cookie that Australians have been all over for the past 40 years. The Tim Tam packs in regular chocolate and caramel are to be sold exclusively at Target beginning November 2008 until March 2009.

I’m assuming that after March 2009, Campbell Soup Co., which owns Arnott’s and Pepperidge Farm, will take a look at how well the Tim Tam sales did and decide from there whether to make Tim Tam cookies a staple of American diets!

I cannot wait to go to my local Target to see if they’ve already got these in stock! The suggested retail price of each cookie pack is $3.39.
