I played a little with an Asus Eee a few weeks ago. The keyboard is small and the screen isn't up to contemporary standards -- but I still like it -- a lot of bang for the buck. You can get this fully functional "laptop" for about $300. I'm predicting that they'll gain a cult following similar to what happened with the Palms when they first came out.
• Iran has expelled a Swedish diplomat. Finally, some country (other than Denmark) has recognized just how imperialistic and dangerous those Swedes are! -- Link
