+ - Microsoft: Easy CableCard, Copy Freely Fixed, More

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft announced today that it would be easy to add digital cable tuners (DCT) to Win 7 machines — so users and OEMs don't need to jump through hoops to add CableCards to their Windows Media Center PCs. Also: Microsoft is supporting Switched Digital Video through a Reverse Digital Channel, so cable channels won't drop off the map. And, Microsoft fixes the "copy freely" bug so that users can stream their digital video to other PCs on the network, as well as portable devices."

Slashdot Keybindings, Dynamic Stories 220

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the we're-still-here dept.
We've been working hard on the new dynamic Slashdot project (logged in users can enable this by enabling the beta index in their user preferences). I just wanted to quickly mention that there are keybindings on the index. The WASD and VI movement keys do stuff that we like, and the faq has the complete list. Also, if you are using Firefox or have Index2 beta enabled, you can click 'More' in the footer at the end of the page to load the next block of stories in-line without a page refresh. We're experimenting now with page sizes to balance load times against the likelihood that you'll click. More features will be coming soon, but the main thing on our agenda now is optimization. The beta index2 is sloooow and that's gotta change. We're aiming for 2 major optimizations this week (CSS Sprites, and removing an old YUI library) that I'm hoping will put the beta page render time into the "Sane" time frame (which, in case you are wondering, is several seconds faster than that "Insane" time frame we're currently seeing).
