Exactly! .. To me this is a bogus article and story. If you are going to compare something, at least try to stay in the same genre of software/services. Oh, and maybe add a few more of the well qualified choices. Hey let me give it a try!

Media Center Software:
  • Boxee/XBMC
  • Windows Media Center
  • Media Portal (I'm using now, may switch to Boxee 4 Windows)
  • Zinc
  • Beyond TV
  • MythTV
  • SageTV
  • Freevo
  • GeexBox
  • VDR
  • Cyberlink PowerCinema
  • Nero Home
  • WinDVD Media Center
  • xHub
  • Media Central
  • Centerstage
  • The list goes on and on...

Streaming Content Services:

  • Netflix
  • Hulu
  • CBS
  • BBC
  • CNN
  • Comedy Central
  • YouTube
  • etc..etc..etc..

so .. apples to apples next time?

They sun spots have realized we were watching them and it turns out they are shy. They are just on the other side of the sun now.

Nope, we can monitor the other side of the sun, they are not there either.

This is done with Helioseismic Holography. Though there is apparently a new method being developed.

Comment Red Rain of Kerala (Score 2, Interesting) 156

I always find it interesting how local events, lore, and legends end up affecting future thoughts and research. I have no doubt that events like the Red Rain in Kerala lead researchers to come up with these ideas and projects.

I'm sure if I had more coffee this morning, I would list a few other examples I have come across in the past.
