The general mindset on checked baggage today is you don't check anything that's remotely valuable. I've had a GPS stolen and a nephew had a handheld Nintendo stolen out of checked baggage by the TSA. How do I know it was the TSA? In this case, both were caught months later after stealing thousands of dollars worth of stuff. They were only caught because of the scale at which they were taking items. What if it was only an item or two? Why do I have cameras pointed at me at all times while they get to go through my stuff unchecked?

Being part of the HTML5 trial isn't enough. You have to spoof your user-agent to a mobile device and use the mobile version of the site. I really wish they would hurry up and stop forcing flash on the desktop.
In chrome, type "about:plugins" in the url and disable flash. Go to Hulu or Youtube and ask the question again.
Flash is dying, but it's far from dead. Google has incentive to offer all of their videos in html5 and they can't or won't do it.
I agree that it still needs work (it's hit and miss on my box whether it works or not), but I'd rather have what I have rather than go back to a straight MythTv box. When it works, pausing and rewinding work fine with a MythTv backend.
Bitcoins solve all problems
I would love to use Steam on Linux, but I'm cursed with an older AMD card. Works perfect on Windows, their legacy Linux drivers prevent me from playing most games on Linux.
I had a newish card, AMD 4xxx HD, but they force me to use the fgrlx-legacy driver. The fgrlx-legacy drivers don't work with the newest xorg, and the ones that work with the older xorg are missing features essential for steam. AMD scaled down the Linux team recently. I just bought an Nvidia.
That article a few days ago about scaleable icons sent it over the edge for me. We equate high resolution with small icons, it doesn't have to be that way. I hate squinting at my screen just because I want high res graphics.
I'd switch to linux with Valve's steam engine porting over, but... The closed source AMD graphics driver is fast-ish, but crazy glitchy. The opensource radeon driver runs really well, but isn't nearly fast enough. I'll be pleasantly surprised if Valve games work at all under AMD cards.
I can't switch until AMD figures their drivers out, the radeon driver gets MUCH better, or I switch to an Nvidia.
Anyone familiar with Valve saw this coming a long while ago. There were rumors of a game console more than a year ago. A few months ago there was an an announcement of official Linux support and then there was big picture mode. Depending on how you look at it, this news is either a year old or months old.
Grade 1-5, had a computer lab with games. They all had some version of DOS, one was some old Mac. We went once a week, but really only played games.
Grade 6-8 had labs, but were only used for typing/research. Nothing taught beyond how to use a search engine and Word.
High school had typing, programming (c++/java), web design, computer graphics (photoshop), and Oracle. I hear these offerings are rare, even for the area. The programming was taught by a math teacher who was semi-competent. Typing did what it was supposed to, I couldn't touch type, then I could. Web design, Oracle, and Computer Graphics were a joke of the highest level. Retrospectively, I think the Oracle class was more training for a salesman than anything worth my time. Web design tried to teach Dreamweaver and Flash...instead of anything worthwhile. Computer graphics didn't really teach anything, they said here's photoshop, now make something.

How is this useful when we need power for the peripherals anyway? Monitor?
