Comment Speed? (Score 2, Interesting) 237

Paying $4000 for a hard drive is one thing, but how fast is it? Slapping what I assume to be a ton of chips together wont make for an impressive benchmark. If I had the cash to blow on this sort of thing I would rather raid together a bunch of and small fast ssd's than 1 big one.

Slashdot requires a mouse over for links to work properly, touching links on my Win 7 tablet (using Firefox) simply highlights links (such as comments, more stories etc), a second touch 'click' is required on almost everything on Slashdot. So yes, Slashdot, to me at least, is an abomination.

windows 7 will be touch enabled, but not designed for touch interface. (scrolling menus is bad MSFT).

My win 7 tablet works perfectly for multi-touch interface, and scrolling is just a matter of dragging your finger anywhere on the screen, just like the iphone/ipod touch. Also right clicking is easy to pull off in win 7, you put a finger on what you want, then tap with a second finger nearby.

The only problem I find with the using the win 7 interface is the circle toggles when your in some settings window, too small a target to hit, although how often one goes into control panel is up for debate.

but will never gain mainstream adoption (See: Firewire).

Possibly it won't get mainstream, but as it is DisplayPort seems a lot more feature packed and advantageous over what firewire was over usb. I reckon its got a good chance of breaking through, but I don't see it happening anytime in the next 2 years though. I'm all for a 1-cable-that-does-everything deal so I may be a little bit blindly optimistic.
