Will Tablets Kill Off e-Readers?

Is0m0rph Re:LCD vs. E-Ink/E-Paper (333 comments)

Not true, I'm a software engineer I spend all day looking at LCD screens. I read books on my phone (while not tablet size it's 4.7" screen is big enough for me) all the time and backlit screen does not bother me at all. The people that are bothered by it will stick with e-ink. I don't like having to turn on a light at night if I want to read. But the cool reader android app I use lets you set the back light as a slider so it can be very dim for reading in the dark. If it didn't have that feature I would not like reading in the dark with a bright backlight.

For Windows 8 Users, Stardock Revives the Start Menu

Is0m0rph ah good I missed it (370 comments)

I don't mind the new start menu in W8 really (go to the tiles and right click and select all apps) but the main issue I have is you can't adjust the tile font size. On a regular pc and monitor this isn't a problem but I'm running this system on a PC hooked up to my TV so 1080P and sitting back 6-7 feet the tile font is so small I can barely read it you can zoom it out but not in for some reason. I'm sure there's a way to set it I just haven't found it. My desktop though is blown up to good size and can be read easily so having the start menu back will be nice.

Firefox 8.0 Released

Is0m0rph Can't use FF in Ubuntu (383 comments)

Flash runs too slow. It's fine for some things but a Facebook game I play Castle Age Heart of Darkness it runs in slow motion. Load it in Chrome without changing anything and it runs fine. So because of that I got used to Chrome and use it under Windows now too.

Google+ Loses 60% of Active Users

Is0m0rph Re:Don't piss off early adopters. (519 comments)

Facebook is full of obviously fake named gaming accounts. You can report them but FB rarely suspends them. Anyone joining up to Facebook and listing Farmville University as their school or something should be blocked by FB automatically.

Social Media Bubble Pops Before It Fully Inflates

Is0m0rph Re:Zynga's profit is down 95%?? (200 comments)

Zynga is killing themselves with all the spam your friends crap. I've played some of the ville games and the thing that really kills them is the spam 100 of your "friends" to get this or that and continue in the game. They'd make a lot more money sticking more with the sandbox than the spam.
