Kindle e-books now out-selling paperbacks (Download Squad)

Jan 29th 2011 5:46PM I used to buy Kindle books until they started costing more than real books...

Entelligence: The aftermath of E3 (Engadget)

Jun 19th 2010 10:17PM @LetsHaveWaffles

I think Microsoft and Sony are stealing. When when the Wii was first announced and when it first came out all they would say is that it's a gimmick and people will get tired of it. Now they are pushing Natal and Move as major peripherals? I don't know how well they are going to do, but I'm not convinced that gamers are going to shell out to buy peripherals unless they can be used with all games. The games look good and Natal is what every kid dreams of (games that follow your movement). But I don't think anyone can argue that Microsoft and Sony is not following Nintendo's lead on this. If the Wii didn't do well we probably would not be seeing Natal and the Move. The Move especially. I don't know how Sony can keep a straight face when talking about the Move.

This E3 I see as Microsoft and Sony saying "Look, we can do what the Wii does now!" while Nintendo is saying "Look at all the cool new games and fun things we are doing with the Wii and 3DS!".

On the Wii side they seem to be behind in that the Wii's hardware is getting dated. Also no one can argue that Nintendo does not reuse its franchises the most. You can always depend on a Mario, Zelda, Metroid game coming out. Not that that is a bad thing...

The EU - Microsoft browser ballot fight is over. For now. (Download Squad)

Dec 16th 2009 12:36PM Imagine if Google Chrome OS had to offer this choice.

It'd be one thing if this was done in 2000 when IE had a monopoly on browsers and people really didn't have much choice besides IE/Netscape/Opera. But now it's just a waste of time, energy and money. I don't get why they are doing this now. If it's because Windows is a monopoly why don't they make MS add a welcome screen telling people to buy a Mac or install Linux instead?

Gmail finally lets you insert image in messages (Download Squad)

Apr 10th 2009 5:57PM Wow, this is pretty cool. I'm not sure why it's so difficult to do this but I don't believe Hotmail or Yahoo! mail allow this yet.

Internet Explorer market share falling like a ton of bricks (Download Squad)

Feb 2nd 2009 11:52PM For me the reason IE is dropping is because they don't seem to be able to update it fast enough. All the other browsers get incremental updates steadily throughout the year. IE only gets critical security patches and no updates to improve.

We saw this with IE6 -> 7 and now it's happening with IE7 -> 8. They can't bring out a new version every 4 years and expect people wait for them.

If what people say about IE8 is true then I think Firefox is going to get close to 30% this year.

Windows 7 beta tested, photo'd, deemed 'massive improvement' over Vista (Engadget)

Dec 30th 2008 12:26PM I think Vista is the best OS as long as you have a powerful machine. It's not good for older machines, but works great as long as you have a 1ghz processor and 2GB RAM.

It was killed by bad marketing at Microsoft and effective marketing by Apple.

Fujitsu Siemens' netbook entry gets revealed (Engadget)

Jul 13th 2008 8:20PM I agree. These are low cost if you compare them to what these sized laptops normally cost (>$1500 usually).

I want a small netbook that is around $400-$500. Once it starts getting past the $500-$600 range I might as well start looking at a regular 13" laptop.

The ASUS Eee PC 1000 shows up for pre-order at Amazon (Engadget)

Jul 13th 2008 8:08PM I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is too expensive.

What happened to the sub $400 sub notebook? With these things you might as well get a 13-14" for the same price or a couple hundred more, larger screen, slightly heavier, much better processor and keyboard and easier to upgrade RAM and harddrive that does not void your warranty.

Just the warranty thing... if upgrading RAM or the harddrive is going to void the warranty I expect the machine to be disposable (read: very cheap).

I'm waiting for the MSI Wind to become available. Seems that reviews of the MSI compare it favorably to the new eeePCs.
