HP linux netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| This is the HP Mini 100e, a netbook which 
| looks are fully customizable. There's an 
| option for SUSE Linux as the operating 
| system. It's nice to see something different 
| in operating system options, too bad the 
| other 2 options are windows versions (XP and 
| 7)

| It reminds me of a set from Dr. Who or the 
| original Star Trek - all those primary colors 
| for every object in the room. Very cool in a 
| flashback kinda way.



Students create video-chat program for deaf kids

,----[ Quote ]
| Students at the Rochester Institute of
| Technology created an open, free video chat
| program for deaf students to use with their
| One Laptop Per Child computer: "A paper on
| OVC's development will be presented to an
| audience of representatives from all around
| the world. OVC is also being demonstrated
| at a conference table throughout the
| event."


Microsoft and Tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft may be left behind by the growth
| of the tablet market.
| In a few years, Apple has managed to make a
| space for itself at the center of the smart
| phone market. While Google's has joined the
| fray with the Android operating system more
| recently, their results so far are
| impressive and they're on track to carve
| out a good market share for themselves.


XO Laptops Revamped for Secondary School Pupils

,----[ Quote ]
| Uruguay has already ordered 90,000 of the
| new XO-HS notebooks, having previously
| taken receipt of almost 400,000 XO laptops
| for primary school children. The Uruguayan
| government is clearly eager to distribute
| computers among the young generation, and
| has also ordered 10,000 of the Intel
| Classmate PC laptops. With 230,000 high
| school students in total in Uruguay, there
| is scope for further orders, with delivery
| of the new PCs scheduled to begin in
| September this year.
