NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 leaks out with Fermi on board (Engadget)

Mar 4th 2010 12:29PM I hope Nvidia finally get their act together and start putting 2 DVI, 1 HDMI AND 1 DISPLAYPORT connector on the backplate just like every top end card from ATI has had for the last year. It sucks that Nvidia cards only have a few connectors when ATI ones have every connector you would ever need. Considering Nvidia cards are way more expensive than the equivalent ATI card - if the ATI cards can have all connectors - so should Nvidias.

Knowing Nvidia, they will just disappoint as usual.

Windows 7's European browser ballot screen revealed, rolling out next week (Engadget)

Feb 19th 2010 12:57PM What the EU is doing is totally uncalled for. As a European citizen it makes me ashamed at all of this. Windows is Microsoft product and MS shouldn't have to install anything from anyone else. Why the hell should they make space for their competitors? Screw Opera - after they snitched to the EU, I will never install their browser out of principle. The fact that Chrome has an even bigger market share in a much smaller time shows how crap Opera is doing. Maybe thats payback for Opera being a paid product when they first came out - looks like they shot themselves in the foot and now they are calling the waambulance.

I'm not saying that Firefox and Chrome are not good browsers - they certainly are, but it is not justified in forcing one company to advertise another companies products. Whats next Burger King posters in a McDonalds? Under the EU don't be so surprised! Besides IE8 is nowhere near as bad as IE6 is. Sure IE8 has its issues too, but its a much better and safer browser.

What the stupid blind EU commission don't see is the rise of Apple. If MS has to do a browser ballot then so should Apple. In addition, Apple and their iPod/iTunes connection should also be broken. Apple may not have the biggest market share, but they are increasing year on year AND as a matter of principle they should be held accountable to the same standards as Microsoft.

Screw the EU commission and this bullshit decision. A truly dark day for us.

Dell's Inspiron Zino HD on sale now in America: starts at $229, doubles as an HTPC (Engadget)

Nov 12th 2009 10:10AM Is the included gfx chip (not the upgraded one) good enough for smooth 1080p playback via the HDMI output or do we need to get the upgraded one? What about the CPU? Is the stock one good enough or do you need to choose on of the other options? Just want to know what the minimum requirement is for good BluRay/mkv 1080p playback without spending too much. If i don't need to upgrade the CPU or gfx chip then I would rather put the money into the harddrive capacity and of course the BluRay drive.

Maingear SHIFT reviewed: $7,000 can shatter a lot of records (Engadget)

Nov 5th 2009 11:50AM Yeah, I cant believe at that price they give just a BD-ROM - not a burner! Talk about stingy. When you pay $7000 for a machine - everything in there should be the best there is given that they are taking a huge premium of several thousand dollars just for the overclock.

MediaFire pees on Skipscreen's boots, seeks to ban Firefox add-on (Download Squad)

Oct 7th 2009 8:04PM What is there to even skip on a MediaFire download page? It is pretty instant. They dont even have the dreaded countdowns or anything. Of all the free file hosting sites - MediaFire definitely ranks one of the best where MegaUpload and Rapidshare would be the worst - because those sites truly deserve skipscreen.
