Canon PowerShot S400

I'm this close to getting a Canon PowerShot S400 to replace my aging Kodak DC-290. I want a small 4MP camera that uses Compact Flash.

I wanted an S40, but it's not being made anymore. Then I considered the S45 and even the S50, but I've decided that I really want a small form factor more than I want options to play with.

There's a lot to like about the S400. Can anyone think of a better alternative for the money? Or a good reason not to buy the S400?

I've done a fair amount of research but figured a blog sanity check couldn't hurt...

Update: Thanks for all the advice. I pick up my new camera this evening! (The story of why on-line shopping really sucks sometime will follow in a few days.)

Search Jobs Heating Up

Guess what... MSN is hiring search engineers. And I just heard an advertisement (I mean "sponsorship" message) on KQED for Google's hiring.

Of course, Yahoo is also hiring.

That reminds me. A friend of mine is starting her new job at Google next week. And another is trying to get hired for their New York office.

Mini-bubble or the Next Big Thing? You decide.
