Website owners: Opera users are the most valuable, in terms of ad clicks (Download Squad)

Aug 18th 2010 3:04PM Why assume that IE users are all newbies?

There are millions upon millions of IE users that are stuck checking websites using IE from their corporate desks. These are people who are hardly internet beginners. They also probably can't run extensions to block ads.

I'm willing to bet that many IE users are less sophisticated than their Chrome counterparts but your sweeping generalization just doesn't make any sense.

HTML5 Studio is yet another HTML5 showcase, this time by Google (Download Squad)

Aug 17th 2010 5:51PM Wow. Slow. Low quality. I'm really surprised this was pushed out for mass consumption. Don't think it shows a very good side of HTML5.

An opinion not shared with the majority of reviewers.

Sony takes aim at iPhone gaming in new PSP ad (Engadget)

Aug 17th 2010 12:22PM @N900

There is no comparison. It isn't just the iPhone either. Android, WP7, etc, etc will all fall significantly short of the PSP/DSi for the simple reason there aren't physical keys (at least that usable for gaming).

I'm thinking about the crappiest PSP game I own. It still trounces the best iPod Touch game I have. No comparison. Until add ons that provide for physical buttons are mass marketed, phone gaming will never be better than a simple time waster while waiting to get your hair cut.

Toshiba's dual-screen Libretto W100 laptop on sale in America for $1,100 (Engadget)

You hit the nail on the head. I'm sure Courier had both technical issues as well as price issues.

What if the hardware really does cost $800 or so. People would have freaked out calling the Courier a giant fail if it retailed for $1000.

Adobe's CEO: 'we've moved on' from Apple's argument, and Flash still rules (Engadget)

Heard this same thing before ...

1. We don't need copy and paste
2. We don't need MMS
3. We don't need real GPS
4. We don't need multi-tasking

Then Apple releases these "features" and people just go crazy about how amazing Apple is.

Look - let's call it like it is. Apple fans could just say,

"We don't currently need anything that Steve Jobs doesn't provide us on the iPhone. If Steve changes his mind later, then we will gladly adopt that new feature."

For me, I use Flash on my Android device daily. Works great. Even when I'm running WinMo and SkyFire, it's a better option than not having it.

Happy about this.

When Apple took their stance it was *somewhat* defensible seeing that nobody really had Flash on their mobile platform anyway (exception being SkyFire). Now, with 2.2, WP7 offering up Adobe in a future release, more and more big players are joining the Flash cause.

I hope other platforms pound this issue. As everyone else offers Flash Apple becomes the odd man out. It becomes a real market differentiator in the smartphone marketplace.

Epic 4G review (Engadget)

According to the review he DIDN'T like this as much as the Evo. Hence an 8/10 vs a 9/10 for the Evo.

It's not the best stuff if its a year old.

Microsoft previews Windows Phone 7 app design process with a golfing scorekeeper (video) (Engadget)

Aug 16th 2010 11:40AM @mrkbrtn

You just laid out my point. Why do I need "thousands" of golf related apps? The App Store is so consumed with quantity that it forgets quality. This app does everything I would need as a golfer. There is no use in going through the "thousands" of golf related app when one does it all.
