New Chinese Rule Requires Real Names Online

Zach978 Re:It's being done in the US too (193 comments)

You are comparing the policy of a few private companies to a government. If I don't like Blizzard or Apple's policy, I simply don't buy their products. This move by China is purely to limit the speech of its citizens.

Songbird Drops Linux Support

Zach978 Re:Alternatives (356 comments)

I like the way Amarok does library browsing better...I don't like having Artist/Album in such a small window pane. Also, I have no use for iTunes/Songbird/Rhythmbox list of songs, I aways play full albums.

Why would I want to pay $100 a month for cable, just to convert it to an SD analog signal? I would rather just pay the extra $5 per month for their DVR and get a nice HD picture...

Android Modder Tries To Outmaneuver Google

Zach978 Re:I am confused (152 comments)

Not all devices will be "blessed" by google, in fact many G1's in Asia do not have Google apps due to licensing issues. Also - the carrier gets a cut of the Market revenue, so there may be device/carrier specific modifications to the Market app to enable this tracking.

Why the Google Android Phone Isn't Taking Off

Zach978 If Apple is BMW, you can be Porsche. (745 comments)

If Apple is BMW, you can be Porsche.

This isn't the point of Android. The point of android is to have high end, and inexpensive low end handsets. Google wants more people using smartphones...which means they want to drive the price down with a large range of handsets.

If Apple is BMW, Android can be Porsche, Ferrari, Toyota, Kia, Honda, etc....
