    HDCP Master Key May Have Been Compromised

    Most items you'd want to power via hdmi only need low voltage DC. A scheme along the lines of PoE could potentially be used over HDMI and could probably be made to deliver enough power for at least a medium sized display. I'm not sure if there are any plans to actually do it, but it's a logical...

    Licensed software cannot be resold accord to courts

    No, like regular retail, Steam sales happen months after release. Prices for new titles are generally identical to the off the shelf price, except for special edition releases. As a gamer you get to pick your poison, both methods have their downsides. But prices are not lower, they just have...

    Firewall computer ? Untangle/pfsense/others

    Choose a distro first. Untangle is very heavy and I think it'll be tough to be satisfied under $300, from what I've heard (I don't have a lot of experience with it). What are your bandwidth and feature requirements? pfSense runs great on ALIX.

    Networking Printers

    If it's a standard lpr or jetdirect compatible printer, you could just forward the port on her router to the printer. Not really advisable though, anyone could spam print jobs from anywhere.

    At least with music, actual studies (ie. not your idle conjecture backed up by two friends') have shown that those who pirate music spend money on it too. Some studies show they spend more. As long as we're doing the anecdote thing, hell, I pirate games once in a while, but I also buy games once...

    Getting rid of gamestop won't change much here. It's a trickle because most of the game sales happen when it's fresh and new, not because of used sales. Regardless, as I've said a couple times, if the game doesn't sell new, there's no inventory to sell used, and probably no demand for it either...

    Licensed software cannot be resold accord to courts

    If you're going to make this kind of absolute claim, I'd love to read the research you're basing it on. Even given all the information, I don't think you can come to this conclusion, it is too complex a situation to definitively analyze even with all of the details. You're not really backing...

    Why is that relevant? We're talking about profit. It takes how much the games cost to create inherently into account. And if simulators are failing, maybe nobody wants to play them? I don't know anyone who plays sim games these days, and I think it was a pretty small market to begin with. Why...

    I’m impressed with the GPU in my Samsung Captivate

    Nexus One running Cyanogen 6.0 (Froyo). Running at 1GHz because overclocking makes it unstable :(: This device has a Qualcomm Adreno GPU, supporting OGL ES-CM 1.1. Fill ST/MT: 10.38/10.36 MP/s High object count: 21.28fps Multiple lights: 60.50fps High poly count: 25.61fps Keyframe: 60.73fps...

    The proportion per game is irrelevant when talking about the industry. Just like hollywood, some games will makes 100s of millions and others will lose money, and it will always be that way. What revenue growth shows is either that people are, per-capita, spending more money on games - or that...

    PWM questions from n00b

    The PWM signal is specified as open-drain, with a pull-up in the fan itself. Driving it directly from a standard push-pull output is at best a bad idea, and potentially far worse, especially since your circuit will probably be putting 12V on a line that's supposed to be open-drain with a maximum...

    PWM questions from n00b

    Grab some cheap MOSFET switches too if you're just going with standard push-pull output parts so you can provide the open-drain output. 2N7000 is pretty popular for this and should be easy to get. LM324 is ubiquitous and a good place to start for this kind of thing.
