Ask Engadget: Best tiny MP3 player for exercise enthusiasts? (Engadget)

Apr 10th 2009 1:16AM I agree on the Clip. I used it to train for a half-marathon and it was perfect. Plus you can pick them up from for cheap just about once a month.

Dec 9th 2008 1:36AM You probably should add a link to the actual domainfinder site. The dot com for it leads to less-than-family-friendly site.

If I keep using Twitter, I'll go blind! (Download Squad)

Dec 8th 2008 7:55PM Ah, yes. Probably.

Dec 8th 2008 6:19PM I disagree about the need to eliminate Twitter's mandated 140 character limit. The beauty of Twitter is that it forces you to simplify your thoughts into carefully crafted short statements. It reminds me of the process of writing a thesis statement for a college paper.

Obviously, though, one would need to be able to elaborate on their ideas in a more fully-developed manner. However, if you can't say the core of your ideas in 140 characters or less you probably don't really have a firm grasp on what you want to communicate.

Android-powered HTC Dream to sell for $199 on T-Mobile (Engadget)

Sep 18th 2008 12:30AM I'm pretty sure I saw someone using one of these over the past week and I can tell you that the device he was using looked EXACTLY the same, but it was black. It looked a lot better in person than that picture, but I can't say more because the guy had to put the phone away before I had a chance to look at it.

T-Mobile G1 said to be landing October 17th, Sprint Android phone out by 2009? (Engadget)

Sep 17th 2008 10:59PM I can't really say how, but I'm 100% confident that the phone will at least be available in black.

Forget Launchers, Just Do It With Windows! - How To (Download Squad)

Aug 21st 2008 10:56AM I stopped reading the instructions after the first two paragraph. As Halo2Master pointed out there is a lot of setup required to make this work. Also, do you have to manually add shortcuts every time you install something? That's a pain.

There are two things that Launchy does that I don't think your setup will. First, it interprets what you're typing in without having to fully spell it out. For example, when I want to run Notepad++ all I have to type is "+" and launchy gives me it as the top choice.

The other feature that Launchy has is the ability to add plugins. I've created a shortcut to my work's web-based email in launchy. All I have to type in is "v" and it takes me there.

Of course for people who are VERY conscious about system performance this could be a good option. But for me, it's worth the 13,736K of memory to have Launchy running. I use it ALL THE TIME!!!

The hardest thing ever...... (Blog Maverick)

Nov 4th 2005 2:09PM Check out "We Win" by the David Crowder Band. It's on their newest album "A Collision" that came out a few weeks ago. It's got a driving bass line and words are pretty simple "'Cause we've already won and you don't have a chance."
