2009 was a busy year for netbooks. According to Display Search worldwide shipments are expected to hit 33 million units, that is a 103% jump from 2008. Even the very definition of a netbook is jumping around with each manufacturer molding the netbook in its own way.

I borrowed the headline from Technologizer, where Harry McCracken is running a poll to see how quickly people get online in the morning. At the time I voted and saw the results, 43% of respondents claimed to get online before they actually got up - they keep their computers or phones by the bed. For a full 78% of respondents, going online competes with or comes before getting breakfast or walking their dog.

The singular goal of DeviceVM and the Splashtop technology is to get you to whatever you're looking for, quickly and efficiently. We're the inventors of this space and continually think of ways to innovate. Sometimes we innovate by solving large technical problems like getting your machine up and functional in a matter of seconds. Other times, we observe how people are using technology and attempt to make interface changes that improve the experience of using Splashtop.

I have a tech job. And, like the throngs of other people in Silicon Valley we all have parents who don't even try to understand what we do because, you's technical. "Oh he works in technology," my Mom would say to friends and family at holidays. No other details. She never tried to understand. Well all that changed last week when NBC came into the DeviceVM office to do an interview. I've tried to explain a thousand times what Splashtop does because I think it's easy enough to understand. But, my mother just says, "that sounds real nice honey." I know she doesn't get it.

One of my friends (and co-workers) Sergei, alerted me to an article in Wired about netbooks and how their popularity points to a truth in computing - we don't do all that much with our computers.
