Comment Re:Don't forget Bing cash back (Score 1) 514

Another thing to point out, Bing is the only other search engine on the market that can compare to Google's search results, and often times it is a good alternative if you weren't able to find what you were looking for. Being the only other option available, naturally you're going to get some extra traffic that way.

Comment Don't forget Bing cash back (Score 1) 514

Only thing I'm using it for at the moment is Bing cash back. If you're searching for something that you can buy, many websites have teamed up with Bing to offer discounts and money back if you found the link through Bing. The deals aren't really that great though when you do the research, many of these websites are offering the same promotions via coupon codes and back entrances on their websites, and when it is a bargain, that can be accounted for by the fact that you pay the money all upfront and receive the money back later, after they've managed to earn interest and been able to do other things with your money (ala mail-in rebates). It's also a great way for these websites to promote itself with tech savvy buyers that know the ins and outs of bargain hunting on the Internet.

Hasn't PayPal always owned x.com? if I recall, you used to access the website at paypal.x.com and it wasn't until a few years ago that they started using paypal.com.

Comment Re:Intel My WiFi (Score 1) 234

With Intel My WiFi, the computer acting as a access-point opens up the door for a lot of devices that won't connect to ad-hoc networks, such as Nintendo's Wii and DS. Configuration is also simplified because IPs and DNS don't work over ad-hoc without configuration (like manually assigning IPs), whereas the access point includes DHCP and DNS servers that set all that up for you (useful for LAN gaming, filesharing, etc).

No matter what other people prefer, I'll stick with my WMA Lossless and FLAC anyday. I'm very sensitive, maybe it's just my set up (Zune 120 + Westone 3 earphones).

The worst of the worst lossy compression I've ever heard was with QuickTime/iTunes AAC encoder, it cuts all the low frequencies and leaves the bass really dull.

Comment What this means for Nintendo DSi owners (Score 1) 216

So, Nintendo just released the Nintendo DSi and there hasn't been a single game designed to use it's hardware on the market, and Nintendo is already on the path to replace it next year. This might piss all the guys that bought DSi thinking it would be the next-generation Nintendo portable platform only to be as unsupported as the Sega CD or 32x. Developers won't like this either...
