Oct 4th 2010 8:56PM If you have an iphone/ipod/ipad, you can use them for text input. Much better than the stock remote, and less ugly than a full keyboard in the living room!
Sep 19th 2010 4:54PM The bezel's not going anywhere. I don't like the way it looks, but it's there out of necessity. How else would you hold it without interfering with the touch screen?What I'd love to see:- Lighter weight. May be hard to do with all that battery, but it'd be nice.- Less slippery!! Too easy to drop the thing unless you ugly it up with a bulky case!- MUCH faster! Needs a lot more RAM, and a better processor. Nothing more annoying than reloading safari pages every single time you go back to one that hadn't been active in a while.- Higher resolution screen. 1280x1024 (sticking with the 4:3 ration) is possible, but don't expect full 1080p, or wide screen at this point.- SD card reader. Not gonna happen, but it'd be nice.- Dock connector on left side, as well as bottom. Right now, docking the ipad really cripples it in many ways. Very annoying.- A model starting at $399 - I stream EVERYTHING on my ipad now, so I'd be happy with an 8gb model at this price.
Aug 27th 2010 8:51PM @Grey Agreed! I prefer a game with a story, hopefully this game has one...What's with the ability to freeze every enemy mid-air? That better be very temporary, otherwise there would be no challenge whatsoever.
Aug 13th 2010 10:20AM @mahmut It will happen! It may be 5+ years from now, but it WILL happen. Technology always starts with astronomical prices, but in almost every case, it gets cheaper over time if there is enough demand.Can't wait!!! Hard drives have been the primary bottleneck in every computer I've ever owned.

Aug 11th 2010 6:59PM Buttons alone will make android games better than iPhone games! They can't compete with the iphone app store as is, but a slide out gamepad would be an amazing differentiator! iPhone games are fun distractions, but nothing close to "real" games, and in my opinion - buttons are the only thing keeping them from being as good as PSP or DS. It's obviously too soon to tell, but based on those pictures, leaving out dual analog nubs would be very disappointing.I really hope they pull this off...I'll happily sell my iphone 4 and buy a playstation phone if they get it right!!
Aug 11th 2010 4:15PM @Nutsy Resolution is not the only factor in video quality.I'll take a high bitrate 720p video over compressed to hell 1080p any day. Whether from apple, or elsewhere, a 720p download looks much better than youtube 1080p.
Aug 11th 2010 12:56PM Sounds like you need the gfxCardStatus utility...just google it if you don't have it already.I have the same mac as you, and it frequently gets stuck using the crappy intel card when it should be using the nvidia gpu instead. The gfx tool will let you decide. After switching to nvidia, I've yet to find a video that stutters. Hulu, youtube, etc, all play perfectly in HD so long as I'm not using the intel chip.

Aug 1st 2010 3:42PM Completely agree! I like safari, but I have no idea why apple thinks people want a million toolbars on their screen...I had hoped that idea died back in 2004!!Chrome has the best implementation of extensions that I've seen, and I end up using it most often because of that.
