Oxford Tests Self-Driving Cars

Arab This + Street View (95 comments)

Theoretically this mixed with a service that has surveyed the entire road network could be amazing. It would remove the need to have travelled the route previously.

Although I do wonder how it copes with changes in road layout/diversions etc.

Arab Re:Still Doesn't work in Links (320 comments)

I will admit I had a hard time debating whether to choose Links or Lynx for my flippant comment.

The Island of Lost Apple Products

Arab Re:Smart Case (105 comments)

I like the smart case, given it's really expensive for a bit of plastic/leather and some magnets but it's functional.

The only reason I stopped using it was because I got a Logitec keyboard case.

The Island of Lost Apple Products

Arab No Pippin (105 comments)

The Pippin should surely be on this list. Also some of those are still being sold by Apple today. If you are going to list Apple products that are crap and still in use how can you not list the Half Assed Game Centre?

Valve Boss Expects Apple To Challenge Game Consoles

Arab Why don't Valve innovate then? (197 comments)

Valve have the distribution mechanism and the software library in Steam, why don't they release a reference Valve Box then?

Hide windows with a pretty dedicated UI and sell it cheap. It's Amazon's business model for the Kindle and it seems to be working quite well for them.

Facebook More Hated Than Banks, Utilities

Arab Re:Facebookusers are more open minded than most BL (332 comments)

Do you mean Facebook users are more gullible?

You lost all credibility when you said that chiropractic care can be used prevent cancer/heart disease.

Is a $72.5m Opening Weekend Enough For Star Trek?

Arab But Wolverine was rubbish (820 comments)

Crucially New trek is actually pretty good despite rewriting the whole continuity. Wolverine was a pile of steaming turds with rubbish CGI.

You know how wolverine is going to end becasue it's a prequel, Star trek could go anywhere because it's a different universe.

How Do You Keep Track of Your Web-Based Research?

Arab Suggestions (150 comments)

I used to email myself a link to a page when I found something interesting. The email account I used for that is so clogged up I had to stop using it. Now I've installed the plugin for firefox I just use that you tag pages by topic so you can just look through all the pages you have tagged with a particular topic.

On the subject of PDF printing I used to do that too but my hard drive got clogged up with a bunch of stuff I would never get round to reading. Cute Pdf is free for windows, in Linux print to file and use pstopdf or a similar too, I'm sure there is a print to pdf tool as well I've never used one though...
