If Opera 10 doesn't get noticed, we're all in big trouble (Download Squad)

Aug 25th 2009 2:29PM Opera is simply fighting a losing battle. Every time they've come out with a new feature that's better then something in Firefox or Explorer, the features just get added to the other browsers next release.

I remember Opera was the first to introduce tabbed browsing... how long did that last?

Pre phones home with your location, which explains the black helicopters all around you (Engadget)

Aug 12th 2009 5:45PM ahh.... you people are aware that if you goto "Location Services" on the Pre you can turn off background collection no matter what you picked the first time you turned on the phone.

I leave everything turned off - GPS, Background Data Collection, Auto Locate, everything. And it doesnt effect programs that use GPS at all! The program will ask you whether or not you want to turn GPS on.


Palm complains about Apple to USB governing body, while Pre / iTunes sync "fix" is explained (Engadget)

Jul 24th 2009 5:48PM "Palm has balls" ???

So, I guess it's ok for Apple to do what it's been doing with iTunes!? You wanna know why I love Palm? Because I can plug my Pre into any computer and sync anything I want at any time with or without iTunes, Windows Media Player or any other program. I have the option of syncing it in ANY WAY I WANT. And since it's a device I PAID for, I should be able to do it.

Apple has balls!

Jul 24th 2009 5:45PM ... and people say that Microsoft is the monopoly trying to control the world - lmao!

Microsoft exec says Apple asked them stop airing Laptop Hunters ads (Engadget)

Jul 24th 2009 5:35PM Anyone who thinks that ANY of the equipment inside their apple computers are any different or better then a PC's... needs some get out more! Back when Apple was using IBM's PowerPC chips, you guys had an argument. But now that they have switched to Intel (which was a move made to simply keep up with the speed of PC's) you have no voice! The computers are the same! In some cases... exactly the same.

BMW's and other luxury cars are expensive because the equipment inside them isn't the same as your average Kia! Lets say KIA took the body of a BMW and put all of their parts into it.... would you still pay BMW prices???? Didn't think so.

So in closing - get over it!, anyone with an Apple or anyone who switched because they thought they were getting a more powerful computer... is an moron!!!

Jul 4th 2009 12:18AM I've heard a lot of people complain about the build quality of the Pre. Well mine was put to the test a couple of days ago. I was sending a text message to a friend walking down the street with my computer bag over my shoulder, when the bag slips and falls hitting my elbow sending the phone flying! It was a good 4 foot drop onto the cement pavement with the phone OPEN and landing on it's side.

I thought the worst. With all of the cracked screen problems I've read about and everyone complaining about cheap plastic build quality I figured my new phone was trash.

... I picked up the phone to find some scratches on the side of the case (mainly the back part), but thats it!! No cracks, no scratches on the screen, no broken slider... nothing. Minor scratch damage on the back which isn't a big deal being that they sell replacements online for 10 bucks and I havent picked up the touchstone yet and that comes with a new one.

So in the end, while I admit the phone could have been beefed up, it's a lot stronger then people make it out to be! Myself included.

Poll: How's your Palm Pre holding up? (Engadget)

Jul 3rd 2009 5:18PM lol, How about problems with the iPhone 3GS. The new iphone has MAJOR overheating issues and yet - Apple blames the weather! Nevermind the fact that the phone overheats so badly that the case changes color! Forget the fact that people have said the phone gets so hot they cant put it up to their face to talk. Or the fact that the OS shuts down with messages like ' please wait for the phone to cool down '....

So before any apple fanboys make stupid comments, think about that for a minute.
