Submission + - Verizon iPhone Offers More Consistency

adeelarshad82 writes: To no surprise Verizon iPhone looks a lot like the AT&T iPhone. The real difference is in its ability to do things. PCMag's Editor In Chief was one of the few who got to test out the iPhone on the Verizon network over the past few days. As expected, Verizon iPhone was a much more consistent performer, providing stable connection and slightly better call quality over AT&T. Part of this was because of the dual CDMA antennas that sit on either side of the phone, which also took care of the "death grip". Aside from the stability, acting as a personal hotspot was another first for the Apple iPhone, which gives it the ability to connect five other devices to the internet over Wi-Fi. While acting as a hotspot, the iPhone showed how many people were connected to it. This was to ensure that there weren't more people leeching off the connection. While not exactly perfect, Verizon iPhone offerred a more consistent user experience.

Submission + - Hauppauge To Release Hi-def Hardware Encoder Card (newsticker.welt.de)

Nathan F writes: "Today brings great news for those of us with home built HTPC systems such as those running MythTV. Hauppauge will be releasing a high definition hardware based encoding card, capable of converting component video at 1080i to H.264 video with digital audio passthrough. Previously, MythTV users and the like have had to rely on the benevolence of cable companies' encryption schemes in order to record non-downscaled HD content. This card, in combination with a set top box from the cable company, will allow the reliable recording of HD content with negligible quality loss. The card is expected to sell for $250 USD."
