If somebody came up to you on the street ten years ago..

and said that they'd shrunk an entire IBM PC down to the size of a paperback book, gave it a color touch screen, and loaded it with hours of quality software, you'd think they were crazy.

At Toy Fair last month, three different companies previewed just such a device. This is great news for everyone, especially for kids stuck on long bus rides, or parents who can afford a Game Boy, but not a Dell. We think we'll see an entire new line of quality software for these devices. Be sure and check out our previews of these exciting new platforms, starting on the next page.

This issue of CSR brings you 150 new reviews, plus the launch of a new column&emdash; Parent's Videogame Advisor. Here's where you can find all the latest console news, straight from our team of experienced game interns. Please let us know what you think of this new column. And as you read this, we'll be over in Bologna Italy, awarding the Bologna New Media Prize. Look for a profile of the winners in our next issue. Until then, "Ciao," and happy computing.
