Comment Android Paid Apps (Score 1) 226 226

I conclude therefore that a large proportion of Android users simply cannot purchase and download paid for apps to their phone

Not all countries have access to paid apps right now. Google has to speed up on making paid apps available to these countries, otherwise the ratio of apps purchased may just stay that way.

It doesn't seem to be consistent. Out of one search result I only have one modified link in the first page (searched "mac mini" ) on Firefox. The next search with the exact results returned the unmodified Wikipedia link. Could it be some caching mechanism?

PC Games (Games)

EA Shutting Down Video Game Servers Prematurely 341 341

Spacezilla writes "EA is dropping the bomb on a number of their video game servers, shutting down the online fun for many of their Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 games. Not only is the inclusion of PS3 and Xbox 360 titles odd, the date the games were released is even more surprising. Yes, Madden 07 and 08 are included in the shutdown... but Madden 09 on all consoles as well?"

Best Mouse For Programming? 569 569

LosManos writes "Which is the best programming mouse? Mandatory musts are wireless, and that it doesn't clog up like old mechanical mice. Present personal preferences are for: lots of buttons, since if I have moved my hand away from the keyboard I can at least do something more than move the pointer; sturdy feeling; not too light, so it doesn't move around by me accidentally looking at it." What would you recommend?

A Monster LED Array For Irresponsible Fun 225 225

Tesladownunder writes "This huge LED is on steroids and then some. It is intended for use as a streetlight. It has a 7000 lumen output at 100W and will burn a hole in a CD case without focusing. And that's without the infrared that a halogen or discharge lamp has. Very efficient and low maintenance. Stronger than HID car headlights or a 500W halogen. Hit the site for lots of data and pics of it in action including burning and irresponsible bicycle luminosity. You'll want one to attach to your keyring, too."

I agree, I have a copy of the game that came bundled with my video card(Asus GeForce MX?). It's been one of my favorite games so far. The music is really excellent. I haven't played it for a while but it's the game that I think of fondly every now and then. Really surprised to see an article being posted about it after so long !
