Submission + - Sci-Fi Film Recommendations. 6 6

KingRobot writes: I recently got married, and my new wife is a quite the movie buff. So, I've taken to spending a lot more time behind the silver screen than I used to. Anyhow, I'm quite fond of a good Sci-Fi flick now and then, but I seem to have run out of options for anything of quality.

What are your recommendations for a good (perhaps lesser known) Sci-Fi flick? (I've likely already seen most of the cliche ones; Matrix, Star Wars, Serenity, Stargate, Resident Evil, Men in Black, etc.)

Submission + - Broadcom Introduces iPhone's 3G Chip (Probably)->

Glenn Fleishman writes: "Broadcom announced their new 3G Phone on a Chip, which is likely what Apple has been waiting for to release a 3G iPhone. The new chip uses High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA), the GSM evolution standard, with both the highest downlink (HSPDA) speeds of 7.2 Mbps and uplink (HSUPA) speeds of 5.8 Mbps. These higher-speed networks are just now being deployed in Europe; AT&T still lags on HSDPA rollout in the U.S. at 3.6 Mbps. Broadcom includes Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, FM tuning, FM transmission (for car radios), five-band stereo equalization, and, oh yeah, dual ARM11 processors in this 65-nanometer package, which will run $23 in quantity. Sampling now. I imagine Apple had early test versions given that this laundry list fulfills everything Apple has in the iPhone and would want in a future 3G version."
