Garisimo Tech News Lag (126 comments)

Why is it I am hearing about this on Slashdot two days later than other news sites? I used to be able to count on breaking tech news to show up here first.

Is This the End of Splitscreen Multiplayer, Or the Start of Its Rebirth?

Garisimo Use for all the 3DTVs out there (126 comments)

They should make split screen games that take advantage of 3D screens; each person wears only one type of lens allowing them to see just their screen.

Apple 27-inch iMac With Intel's Haswell Inside Tested

Garisimo Re:Macs are still pretty... (241 comments)

I feel your pain. It's getting harder and harder for me to justify the purchase of a new desktop Mac. I've had Macs since 1987 (my SE/30 is in the corner gathering yellow) and have enjoyed the ride. While I understand the need for Apple's laptops (especially the Air) to be cramma-packed with glued in components that are nigh impossible to repair/replace, I cannot abide the same in a desktop unit. Users should be easily able to, at a minimum, replace their hard drives (ssd or traditional). If that means they are a bit thicker to allow for the access panel, so be it. If I need to bring my computer in for repair I want to be in charge of my data. While our company has spent roughly $50k on Apple products over the past 15 years my next Mac just might be a Hackintosh for a greener, more open solution.

Mac OS X 10.6.6 Introduces App Store

Garisimo My $80 App-Store Accident (408 comments)

I updated my system software and browsed the store earlier this morning. I found and purchased a couple games (Flight Control HD is great with a tablet!) and a really useful utility (Find Any File -- it can search within a file name, unlike OSX's find). As I was looking over some of the other selections, I inadvertently clicked on on of the sidebars, where Apple Remote Desktop ($79.99) was listed. There is no warning if you click on the Buy button -- the application was downloaded, installed, and charged to my account faster than I could say, "Noooooooooooooooo!"

I have an email into Apple Support, I am hoping they will refund the transaction (I haven't even opened the application once), but who knows... I mentioned in my email that you ought to get a popup or screen indicating that something pricey was about to happen.

Be careful where you click.

Garisimo Elections Online (526 comments)

If I can vote in the privacy of my home on the net do I have to remove all political signs and stickers within 500 feet? Then that would give me the right to pull up all my neighbor's signs. This would have been great when David Duke was running for governor.... -g-
