Comment Underscore.js (Score 2) 65

I admit I haven't heard of this before but a quick glance through the documentation reveals nothing that any CS student couldn't knock out with a couple days work. Compared to the excellent Underscore.js (http://documentcloud.github.com/underscore/) this comes out as a damp squib. Am I missing something?

Comment Video search blows up the the Flash debug player (Score 1) 310

The video site is unusable (literally) if you have the debug version of Flash Player installed. I keep getting this error popup which says Error #2044: Unhandled AsyncErrorEvent:. text=Error #2095: SmartPreviewNetStream was unable to invoke callback onMetaData. error=ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property onMetaData not found on SmartPreviewNetStream and there is no default value. at SmartPreview() at SmartPreview_fla::MainTimeline/frame1()

Are Magazines/Tech review sites/Editorials real anymore or are they just industry backed reviews (aka advertisements)? Is advertisement driven content real journalism?

I remember almost every tech journal I picked up a couple years ago reviewed Vista as the "New Coming". Yet, a year later these journals are bemoaning how Vista "sucks" (which it does btw).

Er. So? They're shills when they say it is awesome, but they speak the truth if they say it sucks later on. Because you know, Microsoft only pays them to gush about Betas.

As for Windows 7 feeling "so much more responsive".. well, depends who is paying you to write that review innit?

Check out http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/11/10/1522246&from=rss . Even though the article does look at the perceived increase in speed with one raised eyebrow, the comments in that article should be pretty insightful.
