Curator Notes

eVilla internet appliance, Sony, ca. 2000
The eVilla was one of a crop of failed “internet appliances” introduced around the year 2000. The hope was that consumers would use these dedicated machines to browse and do common tasks. The eVilla ran the rare operating system from Be, Inc., and stored data on Sony memory sticks. Price: $499, with optional $22/month online subscription fee.
