Gabest Re:Still lightyears off of today's PC hardware (220 comments)

The funny part is, even after 8 years the release of xbox 360, we still can't run all our games in 1080p.

An Iowa ISP's Metered Pricing: What Will the Market Bear?

Gabest Re:I don't mind metered internet usage... (479 comments)

Let's say the average subscriber watches television 1 hour a day. Anything above that will cost you more than you pay now. How does that sound?

An Iowa ISP's Metered Pricing: What Will the Market Bear?

Gabest Re:I don't mind metered internet usage... (479 comments)

The equipment do cost money, but if it's already there, why leave it running unused? That makes no sense. Like the electricity at night is wasted because it cannot be stored. Every second the maximum capacity is not used, that's a forever lost opportunity to transmit data.

Rise of the Super-High-Res Notebook Display

Gabest Re:About bloody time (333 comments)

Or just order a replacement from china. You can probably find one cheap in 1080p and matte. That's what I did after mine broke, it was also an upgrade from 1600x900, so I was pretty pleased with the end result.

25,000-Drive Study Gives Insight On How Long Hard Drives Actually Last

Gabest Blade Runner (277 comments)

This makes me wonder if those replicants in Blade Runner were just common consumer products, not really designed to fail after a few years. Is there anything man made that can function longer than we live? I'm sure there are a few rare examples, but why is it so hard to create something that outlives us?

ISP Trying Free (But Limited) Home Broadband Plan

Gabest Re:Attacks on bandwidth caps are shortsighted (213 comments)

That average usage includes people who subscribe to broadband just to check their email once a week. Why should you pay more because these ignorant people lower the statistics?

RealNetworks Sues Dutch Webmaster Over Hyperlink To Freeware

Gabest Re:RealAlternative is actually copyright infringem (297 comments)

Yes, there are codecs which should not be there. MPC - the media player in the package - was built with real's own SDK and can play realmedia files without need of any boundled codecs IF realplayer is installed on the machine. (note: I made MPC originally but have nothing to do with any codec packs)
