Turn your iPhone into a netbook with OLO Computer


Are you ready for the unholy matrimony of two of the year’s biggest technology trends? That’s right – soon you’ll be able to turn your iPhone into a Eee PC-style netbook. Simply slot your iPhone into the space where the trackpad normally sits, and then enjoy all your applications with a full mechanical keyboard and 8.9″ screen.

It’s a little bit reminiscent of the ill-fated Palm Foleo, which could have been the first netbook, but was instead cancelled after a wave of criticism along the lines of “but no-one would want to carry a tiny notebook computer around!”. I bet Palm are cursing the Eee PC every day…

Asus announce "brown" Eee PC


Another day, another new ultra-portable laptop from Asus, and another one of the 23 secret Eee models revealed. Today’s is one of the most high-end – the S101 which has been described as an “Ultimate” Eee PC.

If you can forgive ASUS for those two points, you will find yourself with an amazing notebook by the sounds of things, with Laptop Mag claiming it’s “the least Eee-like Eee yet”, however “the most productive”, and that “everything’s gravier than past models, ‘cept the price”. Worth pointing out is that the battery life seems much improved upon, with the reviewer getting 4 hours and 28 minutes when connected to Wi-Fi!…

It's not a secret anymore, with ASUS confirming the Eee Box PC


After months of teasing us with ‘leaked’ photos, ASUS has finally – finally! – confirmed the existence of the Eee Box, although details surrounding the price are still hazy. Rats.

Not exactly the most powerful PC on the block, the Eee Box is definitely the desktop version of their popular Eee PC netbooks. An Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz chip, plus 1GB of DDR2 RAM and an 80GB HDD are all crammed in the slim casing, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet connection and 802.11n Wi-Fi. Before you ask…
