Amazon Releases iPhone Kindle Software

Repugnant_Shit Re:The article doesn't seem to answer a basic ques (232 comments)

No, you don't. I just downloaded it and tried out a sample chapter. I had previously used eReader from Fictionwise, but they were unable to get "The Amber Spyglass," even though they had the first two books of Pullman's Dark Materials series.

Amazon had the content, so I went and bought Amber Spyglass.

Safari 4 Released, Claimed "30 Times Faster Than IE7"

Repugnant_Shit Re:Be Careful: Safari 4 Crashed Apple Mail (465 comments)

You might want to check Growl if you're using it. Might have a problem with Growl's Mail.app plugin and Safari 4.

Safari 4 Released, Claimed "30 Times Faster Than IE7"

Repugnant_Shit Re:Impressions (465 comments)

You're not kidding about the out-of-place tabs in the title bar. They repurposed the "Window sizer lines" for each tab - they move the tab rather than resize it.

It is going to take a fare bit of getting used to the new design. It's off putting enough that I'm going to return to FF I think. I'm on OSX and I still think Safari looks really weird.

Which Distro For an Eee PC?

Repugnant_Shit Re:Ubuntu - Easy Peasy (466 comments)

I have the Asus 1000 (solid state drive) and use Easy Peasy (I think www.geteasypeasy.com). It works well with suspend/lid closing/wifi. I don't know if this is typical, but it even worked correctly with my Verizon Wireless EVDO aircard, so I'm happy.

Utah Mulls a Database of Bar Customers

Repugnant_Shit What's this club talk? (623 comments)

I was in Utah a year ago and got a beer at Applebee's in a suburb of Salt Lake City. I was carded (per Applebee's policy) but I was never asked about joining a club or anything. What's all this about joining a club to drink?

Ubuntu Mobile Looks At Qt As GNOME Alternative

Repugnant_Shit Re:Why just netbooks? (262 comments)

I have the same 1024x600 screen on my EeePC, and Evolution's preference window is too big for the screen. My solution? Switched to Thunderbird. I'm also using Easy Peasy instead of the default Asus Xandros distro.

Ubuntu Mobile Looks At Qt As GNOME Alternative

Repugnant_Shit Re:"" may "" "" consider "" (262 comments)

GIMP doesn't have the features. When it does, people will stop complaining about it. Also, the layer palette sucked, still sucks, and will probably continue to suck.

Pidgin? Libpurple is tremendous. If you want to see what Pidgin should look like, check out its sibling Adium, the best IM client on OS X (which uses libpurple).

Ubuntu Mobile Looks At Qt As GNOME Alternative

Repugnant_Shit How does this compare with Easy Peasy (262 comments)

I've been using Easy Peasy (http://geteasypeasy.com I think) on my Asus EeePC 1000 netbook. It is a solid distro based on Ubuntu 8.04. They plan on releasing 2.0 after Ubuntu 9 comes out in April. How does this Ubuntu Mobile compare? Is it friendly towards flash drives and computers with WiFi-only Internet access?

OpenID Fan Club Is Shrinking

Repugnant_Shit Re:Local software solution instead (333 comments)

This. Can you sign in to Yahoo! with an OpenID? Nope, but they'll happily provide you with a YahoO! OpenID to use elsewhere.

Grey Lines Mar MacBook Air Displays

Repugnant_Shit Re:Not just for the new ones... (288 comments)

Do not buy Apple's warranty. Get it from somewhere else if possible. I have had nothing but problems, even with the extended AppleCare warranty. It isn't like Dell's next-business-day-everything-but-theft-and-fire. If you spill soda on your MBP, you're fucked. If you spill it on a Latitude, you're covered. I love my MBP to death, but by heaven Apple's warranties are the worse (and this is with business computers, not home machines).

Gaming Benchmarks For the New MacBook Pros

Repugnant_Shit Still getting mileage out of my late 2007 (46 comments)

I am using a late 2007 MBP (15", 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM). The nVidia 8600 has been doing great. I haven't played Crysis (didn't like Farcry), but it plays Left 4 Dead and Fallout 3 just fine. So if the new MBP's are even better, I think they'd be just fine for most gaming.
