iPad kicks Asus in the Eees

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on August 17th, 2010

If any of you out there though that the iPad would fail, you were so wrong. The iPad is selling faster than Apple can build them and the demand is showing no signs of letting up.

Apple is building all the iPads it can and if it were not for screen shortages, it would build more. The sales success is a good thing for Apple, but not a good thing for other companies like Asus. Asus has announced that its Eee sales forecasts are being reduced to 1.4 million units for Q3.

Eee lights up when you get a message

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

Eee lights up when you get a messageSure, lights on your notebook are nothing new, but they don’t really do anything useful. This mod, on the other hand, puts a 3-color LED on an Asus Eee 901 that shows you when you have incoming messages. All it takes is an extra microprocessor and some custom scripts.

The RGB LED displays a different color depending on whether it’s email, an IM or a tweet. We can only hope that this opens up the eyes of product designers. It would be nice to see something like this on an HP, Acer or Dell.

Asus unveils Eee 1002H

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on March 27th, 2009

asuseee1002h-sbI am a big fan of netbooks with their small and portable designs and low price tags. The little machines have been able to do everything I expect out of a notebook when I have used them, albeit at a bit slower pace.

Asus has hoards of Eee netbooks in its line, which is a bit confusing to many shoppers. The company has added an additional notebook called the 1002H that has appeared on the Asus website. The new machine uses the Atom N280 CPU running at a 1.66GHz clock speed.


Voice-controlled Asus Eee PCs this year

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

ASUS Eee Top available for pre-order on AmazonSeems like all of the big companies are focusing on voice. There’s the iPod shuffle of course, the iLane that reads email etc. It’s like they all started watching Knight Rider and fell in love with the idea of gadgets talking as well as users talking to their gadgets. In the end we may all want our gadgets and ourselves to STFU, but for now there’s a lot of jibber-jabber going on.

Add Asus to the list of those who want voice recognition devices. They want “an end to the keyboard.” And so a bunch of Eee products will soon be introduced with voice recognition capabilities later this year.

Asus Eee 1004DN hits FCC

Posted in ASUS by Shane McGlaun on March 4th, 2009

Asus Eee 1004DNAt CES 2009 in January I used a netbook, the MSI Wind U100, exclusively at the show. It didn’t take long to realize that the business world today still expects you to have access to an optical drive. The vast majority of information given at the show was on CD or DVD, which is a problem considering the netbook lacks an optical drive.

The Asus Eee 1004DN has hit the FCC website seeking approval for sale in the US. The netbook will fix the issue many netbook users have of the missing optical drive. The 1004DN is the first netbook to feature an integrated optical drive in the Asus line.
