In 2008, when the Eee PC was revolutionizing the computing world and driving every manufacturer to make cheaper and smaller laptops, Sony washed its hands of the whole thing. The “race to the bottom,” the company said, would profoundly impact the industry, killing profit margins and flooding the market with cheap, terrible machines. Sony was wrong, its stance lasting about a year before joining the competition with its own VAIO W.
Four years on we’re buying better laptops than ever before and, with the netbook class now more or less dead, that downward competition seems to have [...]

The official biography of former and late Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs, who died 18 days ago, is out there for iDevices, and Kindle. Steve Jobs biography is written by the author Walter Isaacson who wrote biographies of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.
“Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection [...]
Having passed the FCC’s critical eye, and hot on the heels of Samsung’s now official love-in with Google, the Korean manufacturer’s pint-sized tablet refresh is now up for pre-ordering. Priced at $399 for the 16GB model (or $499 for 32GB), Amazon remains tight-lipped on release date info, but is more than happy to tell us what we’ll get for that wad of notes. That includes Android Honeycomb 3.2, and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor — a substantial jump up from the single 1GHz processor we had with the original Galaxy Tab. If Samsung can promise a swift Ice Cream Sandwich [...]
Oddly enough, the Kindle Fire already feels like yesterday’s news. Why? Because Amazon won’t stop launching new products. Jeff Bezos just revealed the Kindle Touch ($99 with ads, $139 without) here in New York City, noting that this guy’s using an IR touch system, similar to the latest Nook and Kobo, and there’s no keyboard (physical, anyway) to speak of. It’s slimmer, smaller and lighter than the existing Kindle, with a muted silver chassis that looks almost nothing like the Kindles of today. The entire user interface has been re-thought out, with “taps” [...]
After plenty of hands-on timewith SwiftKey X, we reckon it’s probably the best virtual keyboard you can get for Android phones. And, for the next 21 hours or so, it’s even better than that — because it’s free at Amazon’s Appstore. So, if you’re brandishing Android 2.1 or higher and you type in one of the 17 supported languages, then the source link below beckons. Come back quickly, though, or we’ll miss you terribly. (The tablet version of the app is still $4.99, mind — but there’s always tomorrow.)
At this week’s SMX, Rand made a comment about two big brands that ranked at #2 and #3 for their industry’s generic keyword behind an exact match domain. Referring to SERPs Click-Through-Rate data, he suggested that you could calculate how much more traffic the larger brand could receive from the keyword by moving from position 2 to position 1.
At the risk of getting a stern talking to, I’m going to have to ask: really? I’m confident that where you see a well-known brand’s site next to an anonymous brand, the recognised name will get a disproportionate number [...]
