Hardware, Embedded Systems Asus is the company that shook up the laptop market a couple of years ago with their introduction of the EeePC netbook. And with their announcement that they will no longer be producing netbooks in 2013, Charles Arthur over at the Guardian UK has declared that the netbook era has now come to an end. Sad news for those of us who still love our netbooks! Harry McCracken over at Time Mag thinks they'll be back. Anybody who spends time wiping the smears off their tablet's touchscreen might agree.

My mother will be disappointed by this since she wants something more portable than a laptop that she can type on. However, since I don't travel much but also have no need for a phone, I'm going a slightly different direction.

Things like netbooks are too big to fit in my pocket so I'm researching folding bluetooth keyboards for coding and writing on my OpenPandora.
