A start-up called Webaroo wants to shrink the web so if can fit into a notebook:
The company has designed its service so that people will not have to go online to access information found on the net.

It has already signed a deal to put its snapshot of the net on laptops sold by PC maker Acer.

Eventually it will offer a "web-to-go" package that crams the most useful parts of the web into a block of data 40GB in size.
More details over at BBC.
