ASUS Eee PC T101MT review

source – by Joanna Stern

Engadget got their hands on the Eee PC T101MT, unfortunately it seem that ASUS have not made much progress from the T91! Here is the wrap up of the review:

What can we say? We wanted the Eee PC T101MT to be that perfect tablet / netbook mutt. But for $499, we simply cannot recommend it. Sure, you can upgrade to Windows Home Premium for a bit more cash, but at that point you’re spending $550 and still getting a pretty shoddy touchscreen experience. While the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t has a better capacitive screen, we found its performance and viewing angles to be pretty unpleasant. We wish we had better news, but we’re still in a place where we can’t say there’s a well-rounded netvertible out there. And for that, our search continues…

Sodae House in Amsterdam

source – by – Lydia

Sodae House – This modern island home boasts an unusual blend of angles and glass, making it an unlikely find among its natural surroundings on the island of Kostverlorenkade 1 in Amsterdam. “The starting point for the concept was the perception of the landscape, the distant high buildings of the Zuid As and the Rembrandt Tower as well as the view of the aeroplanes travelling to and from Schiphol,” according to the architects. The ground floor becomes a den of sorts, occupied by the home’s most intimate areas like the bedrooms and baths. A walkout to the garden makes you feel at one with the landscape. The upper floor is where all the living and socializing is done, complete with an open-concept loft-style kitchen and living room abutting cool glass walls. Below grade for work and play, the basement conceals a work-out room and a home theater. The whole home has an eclectic style to it, from the outside in. But even in their odd mix, every element encapsulates luxury. VMX Architects.

Keep Firefox Toolbars Visible in Full Screen Mode

source –

Firefox: If you love the screen coverage full screen mode provides, but you rely on the toolbar too much to have it constantly popping in and out of existence, this simple tweak will keep it in sight.

It seems counter productive to willingly give up some of that screen space you gained by switching to full screen mode, but if you rely on the toolbar or you just like having the address and search boxes visible, all it takes is a single right-click tweak. When you’re in full screen mode, move the mouse up to the top of the screen to bring the address bar and toolbar down, right-click and uncheck “Hide Toolbars”. From then on, you’ll still get the expanded view in full screen mode but you’ll also enjoy a compacted address and toolbar interface.

Want to know how to install Android on your iPhone 2G? Well the guys at wrote a good 68-step howto guide on the subject.

In a nutshell, you’ll use iPhone Explorer to copy over the Android files, then turn your Mac or PC into an Ubuntu virtual machine to install the OpeniBoot software. When you’re done, you’ll probably have a dual-booting iPhone that can swap between iPhone OS and an experimental version of Android 1.6 at startup.

Nook gaming and web browsing impressions

source – By Joanna Stern

The guys and girls at engadget got their hands on the lates firmware upgrade from Barnes & Noble on their Nook. Read on their first impressions from the upgraded device:

Playing some Sudoku and reading Engadget on our Nook? Yeah, we are! Obviously, after hearing about the Nook 1.3 firmware update this morning, us bookworms nabbed the latest software to check out the added features. The over-the-air update took about a total of ten minutes from start to finish, and when the e-reader had restarted the new Games, Wi-Fi, Audio, and Web shortcuts were more than obvious on the main menu.

The browsing experience, which is clearly marked beta, is very similar to that on the Spring Design Alex — you input the address on the touchscreen and an expanded view of whatever site you’re visiting appears on the E-Ink display. You can use the LCD to navigate the page, though the physical page turn buttons work as well, which is actually a nice trick. It isn’t the fastest browsing experience, but it’ll definitely be useful for quickly reading some news or checking the weather when you are near a WiFi network – we got a page not found message over 3G.
