The Tango commuter car is simply amazing: tiny (39 inches wide and 8 feet 5 inches long), electric (80 miles per charge), fast (0 to 60 in 4 seconds), and safe (jet-pilot seat belts and a racing-regulation roll cage). Read more about this wondercar.

A kind reader points out that TinyURL should be listed on TinyApps. While the free service (which substitutes a short URL like http://tinyurl.com/l03w for a longer one like http://www.apostate.com/programming/bm-freesoftware.html) can be useful when sending URLs via email, what happens to the links if/when TinyURL.com disappears? It is essential to know the true URL for a given page when using the Wayback Machine, for example.

The Brother MPrint MW-100 Mobile Printer is a handy little (palm-sized) printer with USB and IR support. It runs under Windows, Palm OS, and PocketPC. Amazon has it for $284.99 with free shipping. Many more tiny printers can be found here and here. Before buying any of these printers, be sure to read the user manuals on the manufacturers' websites as there are a number of potential "gotchas" - software support, connection issues, etc.

The Shrinking Windows and Micro95 projects are rekindling interest in Windows 95, which has long been the favored version here on TinyApps. Aside from support for new hardware, there is virtually no functional difference between Windows 95 and XP for single user systems. A well-crafted Windows 95 system is stable, fast, and will run on very old hardware (often available for the taking), making it a great choice for hobbyists, non-profits, etc.
The Complete Windows 95 Annotated File Listing might be of use to those playing with Micro95.
