OMG this Black Asus EEE 900 looks bada$$. Kind of in a Darth Vader menacing way. Between the white version and black version I would definitely go black Asus EEE. Though I'm sure the black model EEE collects more dust that the white one.

You can even put them on your own website. And also play your friends in multiplayer mode. There's also premium games for those who want a bit better games. The games are appropriate for all ages so no worries of the violence and adult content you see on some console games. So make sure to bookmark Free Online Games now and you will alway have something to do while your sitting in your room.

Web Hosting Guide

If your thinking of making a website or blog, then this post is for you. I have been thinking about starting a new site for a long time. This would be my first paid hosting site. But before I jump in with my time and money. This Web hosting guide will show me the way. First I have no clue what are the good web hosting options available to me. I need to find the Web hosting rating on some of the better hosts and compare. All of research goes into to this. But the payoff is definitely worth it.

Now there is a ton of technical stuff you need to learn. I suggest check out several technical books. Even those dummies reference books would be helpful. I have been planning ahead and almost at the point to start off my new site. And if I am starting a website I need to brush up on cPanel with these cPanel Tutorials. There are many other things to learn but I think by a couple months I will know the ins and out of hosting my own site. And then the big money will roll in and I can retire from my 9 to 5 job.

Things to do while you wait for GTA IV to be released

Tomorrow is the day Grand Theft Auto 4 is released so this post is all about gaming. If you want to passed the time until tomorrow why not try some online games like Bowling Alley Defense and Moss Flash Game. Basic games that a lot of fun. Time just fly by playing these online games.

Also you might want to update your myspace page with some great Myspace Games. I played them all and their very addictive. All your friends will like them as well. So update your myspace page with these great games. All code is provided just copy and paste them.

And now back to Grand Theft Auto 4, I'm a cheapskate gamer so I can't afford to buy the game. Renting it at Blockbuster and Hollywood Video is out of the question because they have so limited quantities and it cost like $5 to rent a game for only a couple of days. That's why I plan to Rent Video Games Online at Gamefly. Gamefly has both the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of GTA IV available once it is released. And their monthly fees are less than renting games at a rental store for a couple of days.

Second generation iPhone to have 3G and GPS

Engadget has it on good word that the 2nd Gen iPhone will have 3G and proper GPS. Here are several other observations they have found.

* The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
* It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
* The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal -- the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
* Because it's got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn't have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
* The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
* The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
* The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
* No solid word on battery life or capacity.
