If you dream of owning a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook for FREE, then you might probably be lucky one of these days if you tune in to Magic 89.9 every morning at 6:00 AM HKT. The crew of Good Times with Mo is announcing that they are giving away Lenovo IdeaPad S9 and S10 in the coming weeks, though no exact date has been mentioned yet.

Good Times with Mo is a famous morning radio show in the Philippines hosted by DJ Mo Twister, Mojo Jojo, and Grace Lee. The said show is very credible, as it’s not the first time they give away huge prices like this. Some of the prizes callers have won already is a Canon DSLR, couple of laptops, thousands of concert tickets, including certain amount in cash up to a Php 100,000. The largest prize given away so far is a brand new Chery QQ car courtesy of Chery. Another car is possibly be on their queue coming up.

If you’re good at guessing games or category games, then you might get the prizes. Beware though that getting though the line during the show is the most challengin part.

Okay, same mechanic. One (1) comment = one (1) entry. Only one entry is allowed. If you want another entry, you must subscribe to feeds via email. Clear?

And I want to make some clarifications. Subscribing via feed readers won’t allow us to see who you are, and we can’t count them as entries for our contests. Please use the email subscription box on the side.

And as for the prize, our reservation is not yet confirmed. So in the case we won’t be able to avail one, I will replace it with a better item that will surely make the winner smile like this :) .

How To Install T500 on Asus Eee PC

Written by A. Cantos on May 17, 2008 – 6:46 am -

While the release of the Eee PC 901 Atom-powered processor has been announced officially (DigiTimes), it’s not the same with 3.5G version. A question during the Press Launch in Manila was raised by Yuga if they are going to release 3.5G version in the future and the answer was clearly NO. But the good thing is, Ethan Hung (Asus Exec) confirmed that 3.5G is already available, though not integrated internally with the coming versions.

Now, if you happen to have the T500 3.5G card for the Eee PC already, here’s how to install it.

Installing in Linux (Xandros)

  1. Download the .deb package from Asus Support (look under Utilities)
  2. Copy .deb file to home directory (tip: use XandrosFileManager)
  3. Open terminal and navigate to /home/user>
  4. Install the .deb by typing “sudo dpkg –i asus-t500-3gmpt-1.0-9_all.deb” without the quotes and press return key.
    Note: actual filename might vary depending on the downloaded version.
  5. Connect the T500 Card with your SIM Card via USB cable. Wait for a while for Xandros to detect the device. (might ask for PIN)
  6. Configure APN (depends on Provider)
  7. Hit the Connect button and enjoy!

Installing T500 3.5G Card on Windows OSes should be much easier. Just download the right drivers and you should be fine.
