Finland to do away with regular snail mail; replaces postal service with scanned email copies (Download Squad)

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.

Adobe finally ready to make Reader, Acrobat updates mandatory (Download Squad)

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')

Get every National Geographic since 1888 on a 160GB hard drive (Download Squad)

Dec 29th 2009 11:57AM It was torrented weeks ago. Comes to 51GB of data.

EU seeks to make 'cranking it to 11' on DAPs happen less often (Engadget)

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.

Sony placing PS3 slim manufacturing orders for delivery in July? (Engadget)

Jun 30th 2009 2:26PM If the PS3 Slim came out tomorrow I'd buy it tomorrow. Damn post-summer price cuts.

Engadget Podcast 151 - 06.19.2009 (Engadget)

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.

Vandals take down Internet, emergency, and voice services in California (Engadget)

Apr 10th 2009 3:30AM A series of tubes, protected by.. a manhole cover. Bummer.

HP Pavilion dv6, HDX 16 and more see updates, rumors (Engadget)

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.

UK's Advertising Standards Authority yanks iPhone ad for being misleading (Engadget)

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.
