Chevy Volt nabs shaky 230 MPG rating, might not ship in 2010 (Engadget)

Aug 12th 2009 1:38PM I don't know about the rest of you...but I don't feel right spending $+30,000 on a subcompact car. Especially when the same car (space wise) is sold by Nissan for $9,555 brand new.

Avast responds to Symantec's jaded criticisms of free antivirus (Download Squad)

Aug 5th 2009 12:45PM The saddest part is Symantec/McAfee often overlook (or can't detect) many rootkits. I've had Avast and Avira pick up things that McAfee and both Symantec/Norton have missed (on multiple scans). So when they can start catching as many threats as the "free and in-efficient" anti-viruses maybe I'll buy their crap ware. Hall's argument would be that these detections were false positives....not really when once the free anti-virus removed the suspected rootkit/virus the machine ran so much faster and many of the services returned.

Microsoft exec says Apple asked them stop airing Laptop Hunters ads (Engadget)

Jul 16th 2009 8:23AM I guess Apple's finally getting the point. Nobody wants to pay 1,300 for a laptop that's not much greater than the 300-400 less PC laptops.
But I guess you'll never convince the fanboys.
Put it this way, you can build or buy a corei7 machine decked to the gills for what you pay for a Mac laptop, or Mac Pro.

Nokia cuts market share targets as Q2 profits plummet (Engadget)

Jul 16th 2009 8:09AM That's what happens when you provide a country with the methods to track and record every conversation made from a Nokia or Siemens cell phone. People don't like to be spied on. In Soviet Russia the citizens spy on you!!!

Microsoft gets drunk, gives away Technet subscriptions (Download Squad)

Jul 14th 2009 9:21AM Someone from Microsoft Software and Licensing called me today. Don't really know what he wants, he asked about some software I had recently purchased and where I purchased it (but didn't name the software explicitly). I did sign up for the free technet subscription but hadn't gotten a chance to download anything before they pulled the Benefits Number. Too afraid to call him back, left me a extension though.

How to try Google Android on x86 computers with a LiveCD (Download Squad)

Jul 6th 2009 1:56PM No you can't fire this up on your netbook because this is a phone build. If you want you can re-tool it to work on your netbook, feel free.

Steve Jobs back to work at Apple (Engadget)

Jun 29th 2009 2:50PM Awesome how we cater to our celebs. Steve got his replacement body part within no time by moving to a house in Tenn. that he only planned on living in until he got his liver/spleen/(insert body part here). Meanwhile hundreds of little kids wait on Organ donor list around the country, I guess money talks and those little kids bullshit walks right Apple?
