[[Actually if it had had the 5MP iPhone 4 camera, (which is probably what he assumed since I assumed it too until I looked at the tech specs) he would not have been joking, that could replace a P&S for most people.]]

You don't understand the difference between "better than" and "willing to settle for."

People who are replacing their digital cameras for the iPhone 4 camera are not doing so because it is better than their point and shoot. It's not. They're giving up a number of features they don't understand, don't know how to work, or don't find important for a single button, slower operation, and lower image quality.

How Old Is the Oldest Computer You Regularly Use?

cetan 6-10 and heading south... (543 comments)

My main machine is a P4 1.6Ghz with 2GB of RAM running XP. I did upgrade the video card a year or two ago with something that has a whole 128MB of RAM on it.

4 IDE drives, USB 2.0 (just "full speed" not "high-speed") and an external firewire 400 drive with a flaky controller makes for a...well, sluggish computing experience.

Lately, I've started to give up on it for any sort of heavy lifting (Adobe Lightroom). I started looking at building a new one again, but pretty much have figured out that Dell can do all the work for me for the same money. (for what I can spend)

Slashdot Editors and Moderation Abuse

cetan cetan writes  |  more than 12 years ago

I'm writing this entry to point my new sig to effectively. This link will take you to a thread in a seemingly small article. What's important to understand is that the /. editor, michael, decided to yet again abuse the moderation system by modding every single one of my posts to -1. He removed 30 karma points in one article because I did not like his extra "comment" at the end of the article he posted. It's sad how pathetic michael is.

Here's the link: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=40037&threshold=-1&commentsort=0&tid=134&mode=nested&cid=4267381
