Asus Eee PC 4G

Reviews

Sub-notebooks or Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs) have been around for quite a while now. They have a smaller, lighter footprint than standard notebooks, thanks to their smaller screens and because some features (like the optical drive) having being taken off.

Most of the sub-notebooks that were in the market till 2006, however, belonged in the premium segment, making people think twice before investing in one of theses. Then in 2007, Asus changed all that by giving the world the Eee PC. Considered as an offshoot of the OLPC idea, the Eee PC has made portable computing come within the reach of a large segment of the general public who couldn't afford it thus far.

We're sure you'll want to know what it's like, and what we think of it, having spent a while using and testing it.

The bundle consists of the Eee PC, the battery charger, a soft case, and a driver CD. I liked the one-piece adapter (it's not of the typical bulky kind laptops use) -- it's only slightly larger than your average cell phone charger, as you can see.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
