Submission + - Netbook Effect's Influence On Next Gen Laptops (pcmag.com)

adeelarshad82 writes: Fortunately for consumers and business users alike the "netbook effect" has started a new trend which will force the next generation laptops (known as thin & light) to be much cheaper.

Submission + - How do I make my Netbook more manly?

basementman writes: I recently purchased a 10 inch white MSI wind. As you can see it's a small computer and it's good for what I use it for. I get a lot of comments from women saying it is "cute" or "adorable". Not the good kind of cute that will get me laid though, the kind of cute that says they thing I have different sexual presences than I actually do (not that there is anything wrong with that). So how can I make my netbook more manly, or at least have some witty line to respond to the their comments.

Submission + - European Newspapers' business models work (nytimes.com)

davecb writes: "German newspaper Bild, the biggest in Europe, reported the highest profit in its 62-year history. U.S. newspapers, on the other hand, whine piteously.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
