    Hear hear! This seems to be part of a disturbing trend of mentioning the EEE PC without using the traditional illustration.

    So it's Friday for you, but NOT for me.....

    This guy is peeved that I get "Friday's" Register on MONDAYS - **ALWAYS** !!

    "Letters to the Editor" on this subject have always failed to evince any response - so I'll have another "prod" from this location - Commie China - in the probably futile hope that this "Old China Hand" can - finally - get to read this news in a TIMELY manner !

    I'm fed up getting my quota of news stories 24 hours after it has appeared.

    Excuse me for pointing this out but:

    There is a group of American companies - LARGE companies - STILL trying to overturn the WORLD patents on wireless networking owned by CSIRO in Australia who invented the whole thing. Arent IBM part of this or have they paid up now?
