Really? You think Firefox is fast? Faster than IE8? On what planet is that? And also, you need about 8bg of ram for Firefox to open 50 tabs and when one tab crashes, well, you're ass raped.

Um.. how? Do they have special traffic tracking software on your phone? Rewriting the firmware (at a proper phone manufacturer approved service) doesn't help?

MS Says Windows 7 Will Run DirectX 10 On the CPU

You seem to have missed the point.
It's not meant to play games, but to run Direct X 10 based apps without a direct x 10 card.

Can Comcast impose trademark over twitter clients?

aurasdoom aurasdoom writes  |  more than 4 years ago

aurasdoom (1279164) writes "Yesterday we received a copyright infringement letter from Comcast's lawyers over the trademark "CHIRP" as in their "social networking" site. We are the developers of an iPad twitter client called Chirp Frame and we believe that "chirp" is a word linked to twitter more than Comcast's site (who uses that?). Comcast's lawyers believed that if the site has twitter feeds for the tv series they show there people will get confused about our app, but we asked other app store developers that developed twitter clients with the word Chirp and they haven't been pursued by the corp. Do they have a case or are they just going to see if we will conform to their letter?"

The GTA IV censorship

aurasdoom aurasdoom writes  |  more than 6 years ago

aurasdoom writes "With the hype sorrounding GTA IV some gamers got hold of the game almost a week before the release date. Some of them have taken shots of them playing the game and uploading them to video sites like youtube and gametrailers but they all got deleted. So what's this called? Isn't this censorship? Youtube says it's violating Take 2's copyright laws so I guess there must be a secret gta iv clause that forbids you to release screens of the game before it's officially released? There are a lot of games that have gameplay video on youtube and gametrailers and those haven't been deleted for years."
