Just a bit more productive. Blogs are so last century. ;D

Soluto/DLS Giveaway: Try the new beta, tweet for a free t-shirt (Download Squad)

Oct 12th 2010 7:27PM Hopefully this time around Soluto doesn't take as much RAM as last time I tested it. For a second I thought there was distributed computing software running embedded in it as several hours after booting it was using near 200MB. Ongoing frustration research wasn't enabled too. @_@

Jun 3rd 2010 6:25AM Couldn't have said it better. It makes me sick to see all those restrictions when anywhere else in the world where their networks are so developed they don't have any finite limit of bandwidth.

Apr 28th 2010 8:15PM Wow thanks, I was using altavista.com before today but now you've convinced me. I could never find those rare Lady GaGa lyrics!

SleepingTime.org lets you stalk Tweeter addicts even more effectively (Download Squad)

Mar 23rd 2010 12:23AM I think if I was on twitter sleepingtime couldn't figure out when I slept. It would be something between 1pm and 3pm.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing.

Deal. Your GF will be at my place from 8 to 12 for some innovation. :P

I have no idea why you got down-ranked on this one, pretty good humor.

Or is it??

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and 470 specs and pricing emerge (Engadget)

Mar 19th 2010 6:17AM @thatbsdguy Hahaha good one. You really expect Nvidia to make a 295W monster into something that can fit in a laptop without draining it after 15 minutes of gaming? Come again. They'll gimp it just like any other mobile GPU, that's what they've been doing forever.

The fastest mobile GPU right now from Nvidia is the GTX 285M, a G92, if even that.
GTX 285 (GT200b):
~185W, 648/1476/1242 core/shader/mem, 512bit memory interface, 240 shader procs, memory bandwidth of 158GB/s, 58 billion texels, officially 1GB GDDR3.

GTX 285M (G92):
~100W, ???/1500/1020 core/shader/mem, 256bit memory interface, 128 shader procs, memory bandwidth of 61GB/s, 38 billion texels, officially 1GB GDDR3.

The nomenclature for the mobile GPUs makes it look like their desktop counterparts but they have nothing in common otherwise. G92 is what powered the 8800GT, 9800GT, 9800GTX. Then the G92b powered the 9800GTX+ and the GTS 250.

This makes the most powerful Nvidia notebook GPU essentially a hybrid between the desktop 9800GT and 9800GTX.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II 2.0.4 firmware said to fix audio, reputation (Engadget)

Mar 19th 2010 5:29AM 29.97 FPS AND 23.976 FPS does sound better than what was there. ;)

Marvell pitches $99 Moby Tablet as textbook alternative (Engadget)

Mar 19th 2010 2:57AM I don't care for students, I want one to play with. At $99 I'm sure those would sell like hotcakes, if Marvell can somehow produce a decent quality product for that price.
