Netbooks? Really?!  Are netbooks selling that well to make this big of an impact?  (Techcrunch finds online services at fault… probably both!)

Take a look at the traffic growth on Acer.com, one of the biggest netbook makers.

Acer.com Traffic Growth

Asus.com had nice traffic too

I guess as another gauge of this product shift, check out the best sellers on Amazon in computers.  Dominated by netbooks.

Well that’s guessing wrong in the Microsoft product group…

SHEESH.

I personally like Gizmodo better… but what do you think?  who’s coverage is better?

better = funnier + snarkier + pictures + fast refreshes

Gizmodo

Jason Chen:
No weight loss problems here.

Crunchgear

9:03 – The woman sitting next to me is using an actual cassette tape recorder. She has no business being here.

CNET

He appears to be rocking an all-demin ensemble, it’s a little hard to tell from here.

Here’s a better way to tether your blackberry on Linux.

Much easier.  Much more robust.

Good job, Net Direct! Link to their Barry page…

This is a follow up to my earlier, more primitive effort with my Storm and Ubuntu 8.10.

Man, when iPhone’s break, they really don’t take it well.

My friends iPhone needed a restore after txting, address book and half the OS went AWOL.

He started restoring it.  It has now txted me 165 times in 9 minutes.

Of the 13 pals of mine with iphone, 11 of them have needed restores or a trip to Apple.  Yikes!

This is why I use blackberry.

i’ve owned 5 blackberry’s in 6 years.  No failures.  No restores.

As a follow up to my other Blackberry Storm Bluetooth DUN post, here’s the more involved process for getting the storm tethered to Ubuntu.  I’m using Ubuntu Intrepid / 8.10.

The main Bluetooth Dial Up instructions

The more specific Verizon specific details

I just jammed that speed test out here inside a big metal gym in Culver City, CA.

Not bad.

Setting up bluetooth DUN with the new storm is as easy as it was with Blackberry 8830 on Mac OS X.  You just need to set up a Bluetooth profile in Network Preferences.

Phone # is #777

user: Phone#@vzw3.com

pass: vzw

under Advanced -> Modem, set it it to Dial Up Device

This is a useful post out there that I used in my original 8830 experience.

That’s it!

Oh yeah, you have to have the Broadband Access plan and it’s best to get the unlimited data plan for obvious reasons.

Sweet!
