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 [...]
Korea’s finest have been very coy on the dual-core and Honeycomb update to the Galaxy Tab 7, the 7 Plus. We knew that Austria and Indonesia would get it by the end of October but didn’t know when it was likely to land in the States, or how much it would cost when it got here. Fortunately, it has now been spotted at J&R.com, where you will be happy to know that the 16GB version will cost $400, while the 32GB costs a bit more at $500. Now they just need to tell us when the thing will actually arrive.
Google’s new dark bar when combined with your Google+ profile could become very powerful from where you can check your notifications, share new updates, photos, videos or access your settings.
When working, like when writing an important document in Google Docs, the red notifications box in the new Google bar might get a bit distracting. If it does for you, you can easily turn them off when using Google Chrome.
Hide Google+ Notification from Google Bar
I have come across a Chrome extension that lets you hide the red notification box from the new Google bar. A very simple Chrome [...]

Samsung has just delivered a most welcome (and concrete) bit of news for British smartphone lovers. Its next do-it-all Android superphone will be available on May 1st in the United Kingdom. The Galaxy S II will emulate its predecessor by being made available “across all major networks and retailers.” The press release promises a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, which indicates we’re looking at the Exynos 4210 variant of this handset. We’ll try to track down availability information for the rest of Europe, but at least Brits can now stop fretting about the delay / non-delay [...]
ViewSonic’s heavy foray into the tablet market has been no secret, but we’ve been a bit uncertain as to where on the map its products would land. Until now that is. According to ViewSonic’s American team, the company will be kicking off its US tablet invasion with the ViewPad 7 in November. Just as we’d heard, the 7-inch device packs an Snapdragon processor, Android 2.2, two cameras (a 3 megapixel cam on its rear and a VGA front facing one), 512MB of memory and 3G capabilities. Sure, it sounds a heck of a lot like the rest of the other Android tablets we’ve [...]
Jackass, a bunch a crap you don’t want to every see in 3D, literally and figuratively. I laughed quite a bit, but overall I’m disgusted just think about the movie. If you like the series this is right up your alley, i never liked jackass so no thumbs up.
PS when you see the green mountain close your eyes.

Samsung Kies is a very bloated software for Samsung mobile phones, but unfortunately you need to install it on your systems for updating the firmware of your phone.
Many of you who don’t prefer installing it again need to install because that software also contains the USB driver for your phone. Well, but not anymore.
I have extracted the latest Samsung USB driver v1.3.850.0 for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit which can be installed and used without having to install Samsung Kies. You can download them from below.

Dell’s taking the slightly revamped “forward hinge” design language it introduced with the Inspiron R line and bringing it down to 11.6-inches with the new Inspiron M101z. The laptop is a followup to the Inspiron 11z, and packs your choice of AMD Athlon Neo K125 (single core) or K325 chips (dual core). AMD, which might still be a bit of a sore subject for Dell, really seems to have carved out a niche for itself in the 11.6-inch size, with its blend of more-than-Atom power, cheaper-than-Intel price, and decent-but-not-ULV power sipping; Dell claims a bit over 6.5 hours of [...]
