As I’ve mentioned, Eee PC 1000HE is probably the best netbook on the market today, that’s why I have one. If you got one of these mini beasts, you might want to also know that it’s possible to hack it with status LEDs that can tell you when your friend tweeted you on Twitter or even get notified when someone write on your Facebook wall.
This is an interesting little modification that i have completed on my EeePC901. Based on an Atmel aTiny45 processor it’s function is relatively simple, but as it is built from scratch, the build took some interesting twists and turns. Not only that, but it also has a nice little social story that for me was part of what made it such an engaging little project.
