The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D review: From Hyrule with Love (Joystiq)

Jun 18th 2011 10:07PM @peter pham

Yes. Ties with FF7 in my book.

Now OOT has been remade, all we need is for Sony (who own the publishing rights to FF7) to let Square do the same for that title, and you know, I think that's going to be just enough for humanity to pull through.

Buying this game and a 3DS tomorrow. Knew I couldn't resist it long.

No more iSync in Lion (

May 26th 2011 11:15AM sad to see FrontRow go. It was pretty useful before Apple abandoned it.

They better not touch Grapher though (other than to make it better, of course). Probably my favourite part of OSX. I wouldn't upgrade if they did that.

Then run a script on the proxy server, similar to this:

5 things I want to see in iOS 5 (

Apr 4th 2011 9:33AM Kids love iOS devices. They're very intuitive, with full-screen apps and great games. They make computers and the internet far more accessible to all ages.

A guest mode would be a great addition.

Happy Birthday, iPad! Come out to celebrate (

Apr 3rd 2011 1:28PM Got mine the day before release, and it's been worth every second!

Brightness -> 0. Turns the backlight off. I assume you're doing it to extend the lifetime of your display, so it's the backlight you're going to be thinking of.

Then again, even CCFL backlights can last for years on 24/7 usage. All new Macs/iOS devices have LED backlights, which last even longer (and are brighter, and warm up immediately)

Ive due $30m stock windfall, may seek relocation back to UK (

Feb 27th 2011 11:08AM The greatest minds in the industry do not all live in Cupertino. As this article shows (if true), some brilliant people want to live elsewhere for a variety of considerations. If Apple is inflexible, they could lose out.

TBH, it's pretty arrogant of Apple (again, if true) to expect him to stay there even if it's not best for his family. Whatever happened to putting people first?

Ive due $30m stock windfall, may seek relocation back to UK (

Feb 27th 2011 10:59AM Ive seems like a nice guy. Very down-to-earth considering how important he's been to making Apple the most valuable tech company in the world.

It would be a real shame if Apple lost him, although I can totally understand wanting to go back to the UK. One of the problems with Apple is that they don't take enough advantage of foreign talent. They should expand their locations a bit.

I know Microsoft is not a company to look aspiringly to, but Microsoft Research is top-drawer. MSR has locations all over the globe, and they do some real breakthrough stuff (unfortunately too little of the good stuff matures in to products, and is done with little co-ordination when it is).
