How To Turn Your Netbook Into a Chromebook with Chromium OS
If I didn't already have a cr-48, I might be very tempted to try this.

Samsung Drops Prices for Google Chromebooks

Chromebooks went for sale in June and in this short period of time, Samsung has already dropped the price of their Google Chrome OS laptops by as much as 10%.
 
The Wi-Fi only Series 5 Chromebook is now selling for $399.99, down from $429.99, while the 3G + Wi-Fi Chromebook is available for $449.99, down 10% from the original $499.99. The prices for Acer Chromebooks are however unchanged.
 
While a price drop is always welcome, I am still not convinced why would anyone prefer a stripped-down Chrome OS based laptop over these netbooks that are much more versatile.

How to Enjoy the New Web Speed Boost from Google DNS and OpenDNS

If you use Google's Public DNS server or OpenDNS as your DNS server, you may notice starting today that YouTube videos load faster and other web content comes in quicker. If you're using your ISP's DNS server as the default, now's a good time to try Google's or OpenDNS.

Thanks for that link Ken, the time it takes for pages to open has really improved for me with OpenDNS, im quite surprised actually, much better than norton's dns speed.

I've tested them all and the fastest ones for me are the ones from my ISP so I stick with them.

Mine is still slower with OpenDNS IP :(
I prefer to use DNS from my ISP fastest at the moment ^^

I like Domain Name Speed Benchmark
http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm

It shows that OpenDNS is the fastest for me.

If not, clicking on the image may help you learn to feel all those positive things.  :)

This was only one of many interesting links I found in this month edition of
Gary Stanley's Cyber News.
Gary and I met last year in Arizona and he also recommends avast! free to all of his readers.  :)
