This is correct. BTW, by definition, Part 15 of the FCC rules state that consumer electronic devices DO produce interference, and CAN BE interfered with:
"This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation."
This is personally very sad to me. When my team and I set up BeyondUnreal back in 2001, FileFront was one of our original two file mirrors (eDome was the other). I remember clearly speaking with the great Mark Molinaro of FileFront, who has always been a huge proponent of the open source community, and who was 100% behind supporting our growing Unreal-powered gaming community. Never once in all that time did FileFront waver in their support of our efforts.
Unfortunately, this is a sign of the times. As the ad revenue streams dry up, it becomes more difficult to run ad-supported businesses. eDome suffered the same fate: there was no money in the file hosting business.
Farewell, FileFront, and thank you for being such a good friend to literally THOUSANDS of online communities just like mine.
My 17" Macbook Pro LED-backlit matte screen is simply excellent at 1920 x 1200. It powers on to full brightness immediately, is plenty bright in every ambient light situation I've had it in, the blacks are "black enough", and it's easy on the eyes to the point where I don't have an issue working on it all day.
That being said, I would *never* buy a laptop with a glossy display, for all the reasons Rob mentions in the article. Just go to any Apple store and be honest with yourself when you look at the displays. In most homes and offices, the reflectiveness of the screen is a MAJOR annoyance. When you're spending $2-3 thousand on a laptop, the words "major annoyance" shouldn't even come into your mind.
She was well-liked and highly-respected, and through her acting, was a part of the fabric of "me." RIP, Majel, and my condolences to her family and friends.
