Apr 5th 2010 1:20PM I've long thought postal services should do something similar, though possibly a less extreme version. My thinking was that for some communications, rather than printing millions of copies in the capital and trucking them out, why not email to secure printers within each sorting office and deliver from there? Of course, the real cost of mail is the final mile, but I'd guess there would still be overall savings. This could apply for government communications, adverts and most mass-mailings. The further level, of putting a secure printer in every home, isn't feasible for the foreseeable future.
Jan 6th 2010 11:31AM Will this only make security updates mandatory, or all 'feature' updates as well? ('Feature' is Reader-land meaning 'increased bloat for zero useful gain')

Sep 30th 2009 12:36PM Wow. When I read the headline I thought I had taken a right-turn off "international tech-news blog" onto "sensationalist, anti-EU right-wing British newspaper". But then it turned out I was still on Engadget. Weird.

Jun 20th 2009 12:42PM Great podcast. The engadgetHD guys could do with a few friendly tips on sound quality (ironic that) and well-filled content.

Apr 8th 2009 1:59PM True. The difference is a drop from a 65nm to 55nm process, and a slight shader clock bump (1200 -> 1500). I haven't seen a review yet, but the 150M (9800M GS refresh) would likely be decently better.
Aug 27th 2008 3:34PM @Zak, The battery argument doesn't make much sense. Surely Flash/Java could be an option, whereby the battery-conscious would turn it off, leaving them with exactly the same battery life as current. Hell, it could even be off by default, requiring a hunt through the options to find it. Sadly, in this case I have to agree with the more cynical (waiting to sell "3G Flash iphone") viewpoint.
