Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my netbook. How do you boot into a CD-ROM or USB? My netbook is a Samsung NP-N100S-E01PH. I could boot to a CD when I installed WIndows 7 but it could not detect Ubuntu CD Installer. Please help me any way possible.

The whispers have been [URL="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2009/08/leaks-begin-to-pile-up-concerning-legendary-apple-tablet.ars"]getting louder[/URL] lately that Apple will be be announcing the long-rumored Tablet next month at its September keynote. We have all learned that these rumors are [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3626.html"]often wrong[/URL] and Apple moves at its own pace, but the idea of an Apple Tablet with a 10 inch touch-screen--effectively an iPhone with a large screen--is so intriguing that it's hard for a blogger like to me to ignore. That's why I've come up with a list of five reasons you'll want to own this baby if in fact it ever comes to fruition. [B]1. Super eBook Reader[/B] As …

Hi, I'm interested in buying a netbook, and I was searching, but I didn't find any information, on which models had integrated 3G modems in them? Is there any list of netbooks models which have integrated 3G modem? I need web ubiquitously :) Thank you

The Swiftpoint Mouse is primarily designed with one purpose in mind, and that is to replace the touchpad on your laptop or netbook. Indeed, unlike any mouse I've ever used (and that includes the smallest of portable units) the Swiftpoint can be comfortably operated within the confines of the palmrest alongside the existing touchpad. Actually, it's even more amazing than that as I am currently using this clever bit of geek design quite comfortably on the very small area of palmrest next to the touchpad on my netbook - and that's an area of just a couple of square inches. …

There is an acknowledged problem with the Samsung NC10 netbook and other of their netbooks. Mine was about 3 months out of warranty. Problem: Screen goes blank at higher brilliance levels. Disclaimer: The following will work but is not a repair! The logic and troubleshooting might be a good laugh for someone more knowledgeable than I am. No charge for the entertainment. ":o) I'm guessing: The LCD display cable (bundled, not ribbon) has a separation in a critical conductor. At higher current levels (?) the break opens and stops conducting causing the screen to go bright. (?) I was given …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]17189[/ATTACH]I'm here at the Intel Developer Forum 2010 in San Francisco, and this has been a great opportunity for a programmer such as myself. While most programmers might think of Intel as a hardware manufacturer and look to other companies (such as Microsoft) for their development tools, in fact that couldn't be further from the truth. In addition to creating some amazing hardware technology, Intel has a huge set of tools for developing software that runs on the devices and computers powered by their technology. One such such device that has a whole set of tools is the Atom processor. …

Hi all, I'm back with a new problem. :) I have a Medion Akoya E1210, a MSI Wind U100 copy, netbook. Whenever I unplug the power adapter the netbook dies. Replugging it boots it up again. At first I thought it was the battery but I have another battery (we have 2 medions) with same results. Taking out the battery and waiting for about 15 minutes leaving the netbook unplugged I replaced the battery and it boots fine. Plugging in the adapter gives no problems then. Unplugging the adapter while the system is on gives same problem. So I think …

Netbooks remain hugely popular courtesy of their small form factor and low price, both achieved partly due to the relatively limited technical specs of the average device. Low computing power and Internet security suite software do not, it has to be said, traditionally make for good bed-fellows. Which leaves netbook users stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to keeping the nasties off the netbook without impacting upon performance, especially when online. And that's where Trend Micro has stepped in with a security product developed specifically with the low power processor and memory requirements of the …

I thought the answer to this question was pretty straightforward, to be honest, in that a netbook was smaller, cheaper and less powerful than a notebook. That was until this press release about a couple of new Toshiba models arrived in my inbox which kind of muddies the water somewhat. You see Toshiba has released a couple of what it is calling 'Mini Netbooks' into the mix. No problem, you probably think, so these are really tiny then. Indeed, you might imagine the Mini Netbook would have the form factor of one of the late but not at all lamented …

OK, so it might not be quite as talked about as the mythical [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story245295.html"]Apple iTablet[/URL], but the [URL="http://www.computerweekly.com/Articles/2009/11/23/239414/Google-Chrome-OS-A-threat-to-Windows-7.htm"]Google Chrome[/URL] OS-based netbook is also creating quite a stir.

Writing at the official Windows Experience blog, Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc refers to the latest NPD Retail Tracking Service data which shows that as of the February 2009 the Windows share of the US netbook market is a staggering 96 percent. That's up from less than 10 percent of US unit sales during the first half of 2008 when the words netbook and Linux pretty much ran together. Now it seems that the netbook revolution is leaving Linux behind. Of course, this has as much to do with the evolution of the hardware as it does with any disaffection for Linux. …

This week I went to an annual press launch in London. Called [URL="http://www.myplaybite.com"]PlayBite[/URL], it's not half as salacious as it sounds, just a group of companies that share the same PR company (also called Bite, you can see where they're going with this) exhibiting stuff. There were a few gadgets coming out - mostly 'same stuff as before only smaller and faster' (which is the trend after you reach a certain age in this game) - but the interesting thing for me was the number of new Netbooks on the market. One exhibitor in particular told me they weren't getting …

The Google Android OS is coming to the Acer Aspire ONE netbook, and sooner than you might imagine. As a happy ONE owner myself, and a keen observer of all things Android, the news that it could be as soon as Q3 this year really pleases me. Jim Wong, President of IT Products at Acer, was speaking at the Computex Trade Show when he said that an Android netbook would make an appearance during the third quarter of 2009. Wong reckons that, primarily, the "incredibly fast wireless connection to the Internet" that Android provides has been the motivation for getting …

The Android is about to take the leap from the cell phone to the netbook, and much like the first Android-powered cell phone, the first iteration is a bit of head-shaker. Instead of a dazzling showcase, it's underpowered and small, and although it has some interesting qualities, cost is going to be a big issue as some reports have said it could be as high as $250.

Dell is taking the netbook market by the horns, it would seem. First it [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/23391/1231/"]refuses[/URL] to accept that the Psion netbook trademark is a valid one, and now it bucks the market trend for not being able to sell Linux powered netbooks. While the netbook market [URL="http://www.happynews.com/news/2242009/netbooks%20xp%20windows%20later.htm"]seems[/URL] to be moving away from Linux and selling more Windows XP powered machines than anything else, dell is happy to be bucking the trend. Well kind of. Two thirds of the Mini 9 netbooks it has sold have shipped with Windows XP Home, but that has not stopped Dell from shouting from the …

Asus pretty much invented the whole netbook concept as we understand it today with the Eee PC, and for the longest time it sat pretty at the top of the netbook sales charts. The more astute reader might have noticed the past tense here, because Asus no longer rules the netbook roost it would seem. Indeed, according to the latest '[URL="http://www.displaysearch.com/cps/rde/xchg/displaysearch/hs.xsl/quarterly_notebook_pc_shipment_and_forecast_report.asp"]Quarterly Notebook PC Shipment and Forecast Report[/URL]' from DisplaySearch which covers the growth of the portable computing market, things are changing pretty rapidly all round.

The fact that Hewlett-Packard is taking its netbooks more seriously is to be welcomed. A while ago I was going away and my laptop broke down; armed with my existing 3G dongle and an Asus eeePC I was able to use Google Docs to keep all my work up to date, update my blog here, all sorts of stuff and I had change from £200 (about $312 at today's interest rates). This sort of performance for this price and the money it stopped me losing kind of speaks for itself. I do wonder, though, about a brand as big as …

At the risk of being sexist, does anyone really fall for this 'computers for the ladies' hard sell? I am assuming that the answer must be yes, otherwise companies would not keep pumping out the pink gadgets and Hewlett Packard would not have come up with the special edition ladies 'clutch' netbook. It would appear to be a standard HP Mini 1000 netbook, but pimped out somewhat by one Vivienne Tam. Indeed, it goes under the name of the HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam edition. What you will get for your £400 when it finally appears in January here in …

With speculation about it entering the netbook market rife at the moment, you might imagine that we would hear the usual stony silence from Apple regarding the matter. After all, keeping quiet and then leaking droplets of information as a launch approaches has worked well for pretty much every other device it has produced. However, Steve Jobs has apparently decided to speak out on the netbook issue and dash hopes that it might be about to throw a mini-Macbook in our direction. According to [URL="http://www.macworld.co.uk/mac/news/index.cfm?RSS&NewsID=23267"]reports[/URL] Jobs came clean during a conference call with a bunch of Wall Street analysts, responding …

The New Dell Inspirion Mini 9 may well become my best friend.

The Dell Inspirion Mini 9 is Dell's entry into the mini notebook market at a very low price point: $349.

It comes standard with Ubuntu Linux, a 4GB SSD (Solid State Drive), and 512MB of RAM--that's why. The Ubuntu version is a …

An elderly woman in Ohio has been pretty much beaten to a pulp by AT&T (not physically, of course, but it almost might well have been). Here's the story: Mandatory phone rentals went out in the 80's when the big phone company breakup went down, right?. There is this woman in Ohio, who had two of the old, black, rotary phones, and kept paying the rental fee (about $29 every three months or thereabouts), apparently not realizing she didn't have to keep paying and just as apparently not having been told. At any rate, she stopped paying this summer, after …

According to [URL="http://www.spreadfirefox.com"]Spread Firefox[/URL] the Internet Explorer alternative has been downloaded 200 million times. Which sounds impressive enough, until you factor in the small matter of downloads not being the same thing as actual users? Yet while Spread Firefox admits as much and reminds us that the 200 million figure includes downloads of version 1.0 and 1.5 (not to mention all the incomplete downloads and repeats) it still insists on making strange claims such as 200 million people seeking Firefox being a huge accomplishment.
