HTC EVO 4G rooted in record time (video) (Engadget)

May 24th 2010 4:03AM @Peter F Well.. sort of. Incredible has survived so far.

May 24th 2010 4:01AM @KimH Just means you'll get custom roms and updates faster. Sense UI has been confirmed to be able to be turned off with the EVO out of the box unlike the incredible.

HTC EVO 4G rooted in record time (video) (Engadget)

May 24th 2010 4:00AM I think this means EVO is the phone to have for awhile other than the nexus one. Good for sprint too.. this will definitely mean more people will pick up the phone.. probably myself included in that.

That being said they need to use an additional frequency other than 2.5 ghz if they don't want people bitching about indoor 4g reception. Guess that will happen when they eventually just upgrade from wimax to LTE (yeah I know they haven't confirmed that but come on.. they'll be the one of the only ones in the world to have a wimax based network).

ASUS N Series: at long last, a laptop with a built in 'Air Ionizer' (Engadget)

Sep 18th 2008 9:05PM Stupid idea. That releases a ton of ozone, and thats bad for respitory health. Consumer reports has been giving terrible ratings against the ionic breeze for years.

NVIDIA says "significant quantities" of laptop GPUs are defective, stock tumbles (Engadget)

Jul 3rd 2008 12:13AM Ahh should've realized to proof read when I'm tired...

Revised:

I HIGHLY doubt this time around given a mid ranged price competitor
that is pretty close to the 280 for half the price that they're
seeing the same sales as with the 8800. Maybe in cards ordered by
retail outlets stores but that counts as inventory and not final
sales.. which has to be lower based simply on logic.

A similar competing product didn't exist with the 8800's release or
anytime soon there after. Then the 7800
ect series was used as midrange and it only got worse for AMD.. from
what I remember that is.. I didn't pay attention during the
7800 series. Basically utter domination by Nvidia
almost all around last time. Now they've got competition on
everything but extremely high end. Add a growing number of unemployed
teenagers this summer - some of whom buy your product - and
cyclical bottoming in all of tech stocks during summer time (due to a
decline in sales and thus profits during Q1 and Q2) and a typical
rise towards the end of the year and then you have yourself a
delicious decline in NVDA's stock.

If you own stock though.. I wouldn't worry too much... it should pop
based on panic selling after hours, I'd average down... but the best you'll probably see is 50-60% from this ($13).. and that's 5 months from now (overall economy sucks). I'm also just going to guess that you do own stock cause I'd only be tempted to call someone an idiot if
they said something that made me fear that I'm going to loose a bunch
more money than I already have. Unless, of course, they were doing it
to someone else who made perfectly valid argument ;-).

I'm marking this as a win for common sense over some random dude
spouting BS and flaming someone else on the internet (what?? on the internet?!?!?!?! :P). Unless
you have something to back yourself up... in that case I completely
apologize for this long ass post.

You have a release of an early financial statement or something? Where the hell could you possible know the rate at which their 280's are selling when they've been out maybe a month.

I HIGHLY doubt this time around given a mid ranged price competitor that is pretty close to the 280 for half the price. A similar product didn't exist with the 8800 series's release or not even soon there after.

I'm marking this as a win for common sense over some random dude spouting BS on the internet again unless you have something to back all that up.

Tiny XP Rev 09: Windows XP with cuise control (Download Squad)

Jun 25th 2008 2:01AM I'm going to get killed on here for saying this but I would love to see this for vista.... although tiny and vista seem to be completely ridiculous. I have to say on a decent pc (built in the last 2 years) vista with sp1 turns out to be pretty alright. Just would like all the tweaking ect. done for me.

AMD's Shanghai proffers 12 cores, HyperTransport 3.0 (Engadget)

Apr 19th 2008 4:52AM I'd rather support AMD just cause I know competition is good, about a 8 months - 1 year ago i probably wouldn't have said that based on their offerings.. they were pretty crappy. By now differences seem to be very minimal, so I think I'll support AMD just because competition = prices stay low like this and performance/innovation prospers. Everyone should really consider the long term view of buying from one or the other cause if AMD goes under, next time you want to upgrade I'll bet the price per performance goes up.
