I always wonder who these folks are that want to jailbreak for purposes other than unlocking.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I would jb for two major reasons.

  • 1. BiteSMS - Ability to send/receive SMS within another application. Not having iOS exit my current application in order to just read an incoming messages makes me wonder why this isn't a part of the core OS yet.
  • 2. 3G Unrestrictor - It is nice to be able to download or use various applications without having to be near a WiFi spot.

Comment Wii Emulator (Score 1) 310

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Dolphin, the Wii Emulator for PC ( ) which allows for users to play games at higher resolutions (720p/1080p) . Most games look jaw droppingly amazing using the textures already available on Wii discs. I wouldn't mind the successor to the Wii having tighter controls and HD games.

I think the problem is not just higher production costs, but that the games themselves cannot take advantage of having 3 or more GPUs. The diminishing returns of having more than 1 GPU fall off harshly after adding the 2nd GPU.

So true... unfortunately the e-peen potential is limitless.


Submission + - NFL tries to stop widescreen S**** B*** viewing

tfm55x writes: CNN / Sports Illustrated has an article that describes how the NFL is attempting to put a halt to a church's planned S**** B*** party because the church plans to use a projector to display the game on a large screen and "..the NFL objected to the church's plans to use a projector to show the game, saying the law limits it to one TV no bigger than 55 inches." I'm surprised to see the word 'law' used in this context.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
