Adobe Flash 11 will feature a proper 3D rendering engine and API (Download Squad)

Jul 9th 2010 10:57AM Adobe really needs to focus on performance rather than new features. The current Flash is a bloated, CPU and memory hogging monster. 10.1 was a step in the right direction, but still isn't anywhere near good enough.

How to stop buffering a YouTube video (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2010 2:33PM YouTube has always been somewhat horrible. If you compare the Vimeo user interface to the YouTube UI, Vimeo wins by miles.

Mar 11th 2010 3:53PM I'd recommend Rubular (http://rubular.com/) if you develop in Ruby.

Getting Started with Wine on Mac OS X (Download Squad)

Jan 7th 2010 12:08PM There's also PlayOnMac (http://www.playonmac.org/) from the PlayOnLinux (http://www.playonlinux.com/) guys, though I've only used the Linux version.

McDonald's WiFi will be free like obesity starting January (Engadget)

Dec 16th 2009 6:19AM @bigmudcake The same goes for Finland. In fact, I can't remember the WiFi not being free at Finnish Mickey Dees.

Access Mac-formatted drives from Windows using MacDrive (Download Squad)

Sep 10th 2009 12:02PM This problem wouldn't exist if Windows shipped with a decent selection of filesystems...

Microsoft could even prevent windows from being installed on anything but NTFS, but still include the likes of ext2/3 and HFS+. Heck, even if the support was read only it would be better than the current situation.

For one thing, FAT32 remains the only truly cross platform FS (important when using external HDDs and flash disks) and it is patent encumbered (as TomTom discovered) and has major problems with large files (>=4GB) and long filenames (>255 characters). Ext2 would be a perfectly decent replacement for FAT32.

Alternate marketing slogans for Windows 7 (Download Squad)

Aug 29th 2009 6:19PM Perhaps, but even marketing departments aren't allowed to tell bare-faced lies.

A year later, CodeWeavers urges free CrossOver users to pay up (Download Squad)

Aug 28th 2009 6:25PM I'm one of the people who downloaded a free copy, and then realised that the open source PlayOnLinux was better, faster, and easier than CrossOver: http://www.playonlinux.com/en/

Canonical launches Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Alpha 3 (Download Squad)

Jul 30th 2009 5:17AM I agree, Empathy has nowhere near the same feature set as Pidgin.
