Some of you will say that 840x525 is too small (resolution size, not physical display size), but it's a bit larger than 800x480 which is what most netbooks are these days.
Well actually, most netbooks run at 1024x600, at least the ones with a ~9" or ~10" screen size. Some of the newer ones with ~11" screens are even 1366x768. Only the very earliest netbooks with the nigh-unusable 7" screens had the puny 800x480 resolution.
That's not to say 840x525 wouldn't be a workable display size, but personally I know I find any display with less than 1024 pixels across rather irritating to try to use.
Ask, and ye shall receive.
Bah, bring on the REAL gaming news of the day, MONKEY ISLAND!!!
Acer Aspire One with an aftermarket replacement 7200mAh 9-cell battery (going rate on ebay, ~$60 USD), booyah! Sure the new battery weighs as much as the rest of the system, but for more than triple the battery life (up from the 3-cell 2200mAh battery the unit came with) that's fine by me.
The finale was reasonably good, but I would have preferred the last scene to have been Adama on top of the hill next to Laura's grave.
I would have stopped it at Kara kissing Anders goodbye and the fleet flying off into the sun, butthat's just me.
I used to use Miro, for the better part of a year, and while I loved certain parts of it there were a few other things that eventually drove me away from using it. I got really tired of the odd crash, which while not a daily occurrence was still often enough to be quite irritating, and then also some videos just wouldn't play properly, and then there was the OBSCENE amount of RAM it used just idling in the background. I don't care what explanations the people over there kept coming up to justify why a glorified podcatcher was using ~150megs of RAM when minimized in the background doing NOTHING other than just checking some RSS feeds once an hour, that just irked me from day one and was a fairly major factor in why I stopped using it.
Now, it's been maybe half a year since I stopped using it, and maybe this 2.0 release is the bees knees fixing this and that, but unless they've gotten that RAM usage down I'll just make do with letting GoogleReader let me know when i can go stream my latest episodes.
... but couldn't at least some of that increase be from the fact that they had a big honkin' 21-disc box set released not so long ago? Sure it was just repackaging material already out on DVD (it's just the same discs from the old 16 disc box set along with the 5 single-disc "Personal Best" compilations thrown in), but it did get them a "new" release that people might stumble upon in reviews or on a new release chart.
A few years ago, all the Radio Shacks in Canada were changed into mini "Circuit Cities," branded as "The Source - By Circuit City" - They were the same size as a Radio Shack, but under the Circuit City brand. I wonder what will happen to them...
The article mentions that they'll continue to operate.
No, the file system may support it but the SDXC standard will top out at 2TB. That way, after you buy all new kit this round they can get you to buy something else when they come up with their NEXT standard. It's called planned obsolescence, see the previous transition from SD to SDHC and this forthcoming transition from SDHC to SDXC. You really think they aren't planning to milk this cow every couple of years for as long as they can, rather than do it right and just come up with ONE standard that'll have headroom in the hardware logic to match that 16 EiB limit on the file system.
FYI the aforementioned Boxee hack for AppleTV is actually an XBMC fork.
any different from what Gametap has been doing for quite some time now. In fact I had to go fiddling around in the settings to turn it off to make sure when I've 'downloaded' a game it's really fully downloaded so I wont get hit with some very annoying lag in certain cut-scenes as they'd be 'dynamically loading' from the servers just as they were supposed to be playing. I'm more than happy to just wait an extra few minutes to get everything local rather than bother with this type of thing.
