iPhone Game Center may top out at at 500 friends (Download Squad)

Sep 13th 2010 3:05PM I know this website likes to pander to apple haters (and google lovers). But if this the worst you could come up with for the new Game Center, then I will assume it really works well.

MPEG LA chases its tail, says H.264 streaming will be free forever (Download Squad)

Aug 26th 2010 10:57AM Wow. If only they did this a year or three ago they would most likely have been the reigning champions of all these video codecs floating around, and the Flash debate may never have ignited. How, holdouts from switching to H.264 from Flash and Ogg don't have this reason. Considering H.264 pounces each when it comes to efficiency in streaming and playing, it should get a healthy winning surge of use in the near future.

Windows DLL exploit could cause problems, and there's no immediate fix available (Download Squad)

Aug 25th 2010 3:33PM iTunes can't be used on Windows as an exploit vehicle, it was updated to not allow it. I love how so many blogs about this issue have tried to bring Apple into it in some way without noting that iTunes is not vulnerable.

No copy and paste for Windows Phone 7 Series? (Download Squad)

Mar 17th 2010 9:18AM As with the iPhone, this will be a deal breaker for only some. Many said they wouldn't need it, and some cited the smart links the iPhone uses (similar to what MS is talking about here) as a reason for not needing it. In my experience, I didn't find a need for it, until it was there. Now I use it occassionally.

No you are not. This is excellent news.

Droid gets a USB hack allowing it to control printers and cameras, humans put on alert (Engadget)

Feb 10th 2010 9:57AM In case folks didn't know, the iPhone, and thus iPodTouch and iPad can print wirelessly. For HP printers you can use HP iPrint. There's one for Lexmark too, but don't know about others.

British surgeons using radiation beams to halt macular degeneration (Engadget)

Nov 23rd 2009 4:18PM Your asking a question that has a very complex answer. In short, no, this would not mean anything relevant for RP, although you are correct in the similarities of RP and MD. Also, keep in mind that neovascularization is a symptom of MD, not the cause (thus the problem I have with this article). Furthermore, you are correct that they both have a genetic basis, but RP is more directly correlated with several types of genetic mutations than MD,
