    Steve Jobs Reintroducing Apple Computers

    Aesthetics matter in this world. That's why we like hot women/men, because we care about the outer appearance. So despite all the hating I do on Apple, at least they are very much in tune with their consumer base. You buy into the Apple culture every time you buy an Apple product.

    Recommend me an SSD for <$120

    Thanks for the great advice guys. I think I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for deals on either the Intel or the Agility. Shame on me for not knowing about the Fry's deal on the Intel two weeks back :(.

    Recommend me an SSD for <$120

    There's also the 32GB Corsair Nova that I found for 80. How would that compare to the Onyx?

    Recommend me an SSD for <$120

    Cool I've give both of those a look. Any big advantage of the X-25V over the Onyx? How are these drives in terms of usable capacity (after formatting and stuff)?

    Recommend me an SSD for <$120

    Shopping for an SSD to throw into the laptop. Capacity isn't a big issue since it's not going to hold any files other than spreadsheets, pdfs, and docs along with a few programs. I figure at that price range I'm looking at 32-60GB. All SSD's seem similar to me though so I'm having a tough time...

    DIY 13.4" Carbon Fiber Touchscreen Tablet PC

    HOW DID YOU KNOW??!!? I use a sausage to write on my iPhone and the cops haven't caught me...yet. I find this project to be totally awesome. It was most likely a transfer of an existing tablet into a new slate casing but great job nonetheless getting the fit and finish to look good. The lack...

    Foxconn Workers Killing Themselves For Money

    Given that the average Chinese family doesn't exactly have an excess number of children per family and the generally family-centric culture, I highly doubt any family would see the death of a family member positively. Definitely not the death of children.

    MPAA Worries About Pirating U.S. Soldiers in Iraq

    I know it's a terrible thing to wish upon anyone but I want to see the MPAA open lawsuits against some of these troops just so this issue gets some real mainstream news attention.

    Nanosatellite To Clear Dangerous Debris From Space

    I don't think the satellite or sail is supposed to clean existing debris, just reduce and limit introduction of new debris into space. We should get a rocket or shuttle to trawl a large net and bring the stuff back down to earth for some expensive recycling. I'm sure there are many tons of...

    More States Propose Internet Sales Taxes

    Would be nice to see some sort of responsibility in government spending instead of just finding more ways to pay for outdated, overbudgeted programs and departments. Sign... maybe we should just start over from scratch....

    Toyota and Microsoft?

    Wouldn't it be best if we just ignored these sorts of people? Flame baiters just want the everlasting attention the internet offers that they never received in their childhood or from others in society. Why encourage them?

    Hahahahaha...I'm so sorry for your situation but that's pretty ridiculous looking. Why go through all the trouble of making a mold for a heatsink if the moment someone sees it, they will know its fake?

    Win 7 PC inaccessible from Vista Biz Laptop but not vice versa

    Trying to get the Vista laptop onto the Win 7 created workgroup. Full shares are on. Network discovery on both. When I started, attempting to log into Win 7 PC required username and password, which I couldn't get to work. Now I just get error "Windows cannot access \\PC Network path not found"...

    Will AMD ever be competitive with Intel in performance?

    Sure, after all the other 35 states don't really matter. Clearly the majority of the US population lives in the 15 states that there are Microcenters in ;) But sarcasm aside, I stand by my view that AMD performance is pretty comparable to Intel at the low end of the price bracket.

    Will AMD ever be competitive with Intel in performance?

    Most people don't have access to Microcenter so I would consider their "regular" price to be an aberration. Why shouldn't it be 20% faster? It costs 20% more.

    Will AMD ever be competitive with Intel in performance? Seems pretty comparable in performance... between i3 and Athlon II X4. You said it yourself that i3-530 keeps up in games so you seem to be aware of the similar performance. Out of curiosity, since...

    Microsoft Responds To NY Times Op-Ed

    Have to agree. Some misinformation and poor assumptions. I personally hate ClearType so if he's the one who came up with it I'm glad they hassled him over it. And yeah, iPad is innovative if we ignore the large number of tablet slates that have been around for years now. Way to go Dick.
