Just got a netbook... have a few ?'s

Hey guys. I just got an Asus Seashell eee PC 1005pe-mu27-bu and I love it. I was almost about to get an iPad but really like windows OS, and I wanted to play Donkey Kong Country since my SNES just broke. I have a few questions for you guys.

I love the little apps from the apple app store and am trying to find some windows equivalent of them. I have (for PC) the skype program, tweetdeck, RadioSure (like ooTunes or AOL radio iPhone app).

For example, I am trying to find an RSS feed program
a program like sportacular
a fantasy sports manager program
an xbox 360 friends program
etc.

I know I can go to websites to check all this, I am just trying to make my netbook as much like an iPad as possible with the awesome benefits and features of owning an actual PC offers so I want little applications/programs that will do this like an iPad/iPhone.

Also, what 'cool' programs and/or applications and games are a must, especially for a netbook.

Thanks for reading and responding... WINDOWS for life!

You might want to check this out: Intel AppUp Center. I use it on my EEE PC, and it's pretty awesome. It's pretty much an app store specifically for netbooks. Check it out and see if it's got what your looking for.

Oh yeah, I checked that out... it didnt seem worthwhile as of right now. I think its got potential but its still a newborn. But thank you very much for the reply! PS, is there anything in that app store worth DLing? I might have overlooked something.

Eh, there's a few things...the only one I use on a regular basis is the DejaView e-book reader. If I run across anything matching what you're looking for, I'll either post a reply in here or shoot you a PM.

Thanks. I use Foxit Reader for my eBooks. I dunno, i just think it would be cool to have an iPad PC thats better (which it is). Anyone else have any thoughts and/or suggestions?

New Netbook
Hello guys. I've bought a new netbook. My Question is do I need to keep the Adapter Plugged in ? or can I remove it when the battery if fully charged? Because I read somewhere that's better for the battery life to keep the adapter on all the time. Sorry if this is not the right section!
