Comment: Re:It needs games! (Score -1) 259 259

PS3 had plenty of games at launch (Euro launch). The only people saying otherwise were Microsoft and their army of internet shills. The funny thing is that I actually have a brain and recall how shit the XBox360 launch lineup was. It's a shame so many Americans have selective memory and forget these things.

Comment: HTTP1.1 Pipelining (Score -1) 310 310

I mean if someone cared about page load times, they would be using Opera, the ONLY browser to fully support and have enabled HTTP 1.1 pipelining, which provides FAR better results across FAR more sites...

The only difference of course, is Opera ASA don't have the bottomless pits of money to tell the wider world about these things. I find it curious that it's Chrome this, chrome that, nobody is talking about the MASSIVE bandwidth savings that Opera 11.10 is getting using WebP server transcoding...

shut up. PS3 gamers don't want hackers like that idiot ruining the system. Sony were protecting consumers, your pro-GeoHot (or more likely, pro Microsoft) comments certainly aren't.

If you want to talk about fucking over consumers, lets talk about Microsoft's "ship it anway and we can sell them a new one in a couple of years time" strategy for the Xbox360.

50m consoles sold to 25m gamers.....

Comment: Nokia R.I.P (Score -1) 479 479

You just did a Motorola, and killed your smartphone business. You went from a burning platform to another burning platform.

No doubt your ex-Microsoft CEO had something to do with this decision, I wonder where his priorities were...

Microsoft only look after Microsoft, they don't give a rats ass what happens to Nokia, who by the end of this will be an empty shell of their former selves. Microsoft will have gotten what they wanted out of it (WP7 not sinking without a trace) and Nokia will be scrabbling around as a bottom-feeder picking up the pieces.

I'm betting 3 years from now, they will be desperate to join OHA (if they shareholders haven't revolted by then)

This decision will be seen as the key demise of Nokia several years from now.

Congratulations Stephen Elop , your true masters back in Redmond will be most pleased.

I'm overjoyed. There is no need for H,.264 support in browsers. WebM is just fine, and supported in Opera, Chrome and Firefix.

The next step Google will take is to remove H.264 video from YouTube, and then finally remove Flash too. IE and Safari users will be left out in the cold, with the offer to upgrade to better browsers like Opera.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
