A new class of portable computers, dubbed 'netbooks,' burst onto the scene in late 2007. Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS spearheaded the netbook revolution with their playfully named, and ostensibly tiny, Eee PC.
When compared to a full fledged notebook, these computers,weighing between two and three pounds, have limited functionality. You can type up a memo, surf the web, or watch a movie – albeit on a small screen – with ease, but you wouldn't want to edit a home movie, track your finances, or rely on a netbook for any mission-critical
Football season begins in late summer and carries all the way through to the following calendar year, and even though that’s a sizable stretch of time, it passes by incredibly quickly for true football fans. It’s hard to believe, but it’s happened again: regular season and the playoffs are over, and there’s only one game left. In order to get the most out of the big game, you need to make sure your television is properly set up and calibrated, and that your sound
The CES trade show in Las Vegas has grown into an electronics cavalcade, with old industry giants like Sony and Samsung bumping shoulders and vying for our attention with dozens of mid-level manufacturers and startup companies. The point of the show is to wow journalists, buyers, bloggers and spectators with the latest and greatest in consumer electronics, creative gadgets and innovative technology straight out of a science-fiction book.I’ve spent the last few days following the show online with a few coworkers.

There used to be a time when your appliances were not as smart as you. A time when you told the coffee maker what time you were getting up, the coffee maker didn’t tell you. A time when you, not your smartphone, scheduled lights out. There was a time when we ruled the electronics in our lives, and not the other way around.
But that time is past. Now we have appliances that tell us when to get up, when to leave the house, when to lock and alarm the doors, and when to turn the TV off. We can’t make a move without informing one of our many
If you went to visit family or friends this Thanksgiving, you might have noticed that they had a digital photo frame prominently displayed in their household. It’s hard to ignore the fact that digital frames are found in almost every home these days. These frames offer a flexible and more interactive alternative to the traditional glass picture frame. With a digital photo frame, you can load hundreds of images and set them up as a slideshow or leave one image for a few days and then change it when the mood strikes. Several digital picture
You can’t go anywhere these days without your every movement being caught on a surveillance video. Gas stations, department stores, banks—everyone has their electronic eye on you at some point. While most of the surveillance out there is greatly beneficial to law enforcement, some surveillance video is of a more personal nature. The recently reduced cost of producing and mass-marketing these items has led to a boom in personal surveillance equipment sales.
Scenarios in which you would want your own personal electronic eye would be in home

When Apple decided to license its AirPlay technology to speaker and receiver manufacturers so their components could play audio wirelessly from iTunes on a Windows or Macintosh computer or from such iOS devices as an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, few realized how many companies would bite.

What’s slimmer than a flat-screen TV? How about a movie on DVD profiled from its edge? At 0.047-inch (1.2 millimeters) thick, a disc makes even a thin TV look fat. Maybe that’s why choosing a TV that lets you load a DVD or CD vertically in a side slot behind the screen has proven to be a popular way to save space in a cramped household, especially in a secondary viewing room such as a kitchen, bedroom or den. With a combo model, you don’t need to accommodate a separate DVD player and its dedicated connecting wires, power cable and
