Remastered Star Trek: the Next Generation Blu-ray a Huge Leap Forward
With a lower bit rate it is possible to encode 720p and 1080p on DVD media. 25gb BD-R are about the same price as DVD+R DL so they aren't that expensive.
If you still want to use DVD media lookup AVCHD & BD-9.
DC Comics Announces "Before Watchmen"
Vertigo is full of "R" rated material. That is the only way they can do the prequel Watchmen stories in a proper way.
They do have some fantastic writers such as J. Michael Straczynski but I fear they will limit the comic to "PG" level stories. I suspect it won't be totally awful but the readers will feel it could of been so much better.
USPS Ending Overnight First-Class Letter Service
They won't use UPS if they ever want to see their discs again.
That is absolute bullshit. Mods please mark that post as troll and this one as well if need be. In my adult life (25 to 30 years) I have only had a couple problems with UPS which were always resolved by the shipping party.
I have never experienced a serious USPS problems either for that matter. The current USPS financial problem is a purely political problem that could be resolved with a bill that would change USPS money management back policy to roughly their 1990s rules and regulations.
CyanogenMod 9 Working On the Nexus S
Not sure if it's "real" enough for you, but Ubuntu is coming to tablets.
Whether that means you'll be able to run any Linux application you like remains to be seen, but I imagine if it's Debian-based it should be quite hackable.
Ubuntu is already running on the ASUS TF101 and an idiot proof install is in early stages of development.
Gadget Allows You to Keep Bees In Your Apartment
I thought bees lived in dogs not hives.
I mean how else are you gonna get those dogs that shoot bees out their mouths.
HP Keeping Their PC Business
I won't support any HP product as long as leading TeaBagger Meg Whitman is in the leadership of HP.
US Drone Fleet Hit By Computer Virus
That would be against the apple developer's agreement. :)
I mean jeeze, you aren't even allowed to make porn on idevices, and wmds are straight out.
Steve Jobs aint here anymore...
RMS: 'Is Android Really Free Software?'
Some in the FOSS community seem to have taken a page from the Tea Party handbook.
Like or hate the tea party their strategy seems to be working. They are effectively in control of the united states government. By your standards the FOSS community should be ruling the software world instead of largely being unknown.
UK To Get Whitespace Radio
The Jodrell Bank Observatory has made man many world-class discoveries. Will it be blinded now the whole spectrum is to be filled?
Would you give up your internet access permanently so the observatory could function?
Smartphones: the New Home of Crapware
No good for android 3.0 and higher.
Bing More Effective Than Google?
In fact if you use a hosts file and adblock+ bing.com doesn't even load properly. If you use the bing search bar in FF or Chrome it works but formatting is all screwed up.
Chinese Firm Launches Cloud-Based Mobile OS
And all you have to do is surrender all your data and privacy to the Chinese government, who will in no way use it to spy on you and make dissident "disappear". You can trust Uncle Hu.
And this is diffrent from Google how?
New Book Reports Soviets Behind Roswell UFO Scare
She was on the daily show last week; she seemed pretty sane, even if her story doesn't... Judge for yourself.
Angry Birds Exec Says Console Games Are Dying
I guess the innovation is that by using cute birds instead of nerd type objects like catapults Angry Birds has incredible main stream appeal. Where the previous similiar games were made for nerds only.
Feds Help You Find Your Fastest Internet Service
The National Broadband Map gives erroneous results. For example, it states that Verizon has broadband service for my address, but it doesn't.
Same for me as well. It listed at least 6 providers for my area but in fact there are zero providers of broadband in my area.
Human Rights Groups Join Criticism of WikiLeaks
These people already put themselves on "death lists" by associating with various foreign military organizations. If a few more deaths put a real end to the iraq and afghanistan wars it would be worth it.
The Verizon Wireless HTC Eris 'Silent Call Bug'
>Homer[*] equated her with the war-goddess Enyo
The Curious Case of SSD Performance In OS X
Of course TRIM doesn't work on OS X.
Macs are for fags.
Apple Removes Wi-Fi Finders From App Store
Until apple sues android out of existence.
