    My local Costco has the Dell XPS 15 i7/16gb 9570 for $1400.

    It's on clearance, so ymmv. They're simultaneously selling the 13" for $1600. Pretty great deal if you're in the market for one of these. I'd jump on it, but I've gotten too used to the 3:2 aspect ratio of my surface to go back.

    WAPO Free for 6 Months to Prime Members

    Maybe he just doesn't like newspapers that have won too many pulitzers. 48 is a big number, perhaps even unfathomably large to some.

    Five Years On, Millions Still Dig 'FarmVille'

    Farmville hits the same addictive pathways as gambling. That's why games like Game of War: Fire Age on iOS have people who spend $100k/yr on it.

    ipad air 16gb wifi only $400 (after $100 off)

    I was honestly shocked when they released the current-gen ipads and 16gb was still the standard. I don't think there's any way they can get away with it for the next gen.

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    I've got an old 2070sb with a slightly blurry screen and a fairly long warmup period (5-10mins). I haven't used it in years, and was thinking of just tossing it, as I figured the tube is shot. Just wanted to check in first to make sure i'm not being stupid. I've also got a Dell P1230, which...

    Rebates To Cut Price of $60 LED Bulb

    I switched everything to CFL's a few years ago. This year i switched back to incandescents. The goddamn things burn out ridiculously fast... and no, I wasn't flicking them on and off dozens of times a day. The 130v rated 'can's last way longer, I dont need to be conscious of how often I...

    Navy: We’re 4 Years Away From Laser Guns on Ships

    For what purpose? Anti-missile? Lasers against other ships or ground targets - the majority of naval warfare for the last 60 years - doesn't seem practical with a weapon that can only fire in a flat trajectory. Anything beyond the horizon is off limits.

    Blue HID's are illegal according to the DOT. I think its just hard to enforce as the DOT rules go by color temperature... which is probably hard for a cop or an inspection station to measure.

    Wozniak First in Line for the New iPad

    Could also just be that when woz was active, memory was really all you had. Didn't he leave apple in the mid-80's? Sort of like how folks still called cd's "records"... and today people still talk about "the latest cd" even if they downloaded it on itunes.
