What's Next For Smartphone Innovation
That's what I want. A full surface screen.
That could make your phone beautiful.
Microsoft Surface Struggles to Ship A Million Units
I agree. Tablets fit with the changed computer behaviour.
Computers and laptops are made for a desk and for work. But when I come home from work, i don't want to work anymore. I want to use my computer as entertainment (facebook, newssites, youtube, ...). Also, I don't want to sit at a desk but comfortably on a couch.
My laptop/netbook is not ergonomic to use on the couch, and my phone is too small. So i use a tablet.
Tablets are here to stay. And they will become the remote (or hub or whatever) for your tv.
Slashdot Asks: SATA DVD Drives That Don't Suck for CD Ripping?
I wish I had mod points for you.
But honestly, thomasvs, when you come this late to the discussion, AND you have something this interesting to say, I think you are allowed to post it higher in the thread, even if it's not 100% on topic.
I mean, you're politically correct to post it here, but nobody will read it. Isn't that worse than posting SLIGHTLY off-topic higher up in the thread but where it can be an added value to people because they will read it?
Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot
Slashdot has always been a beakon of good taste on the Internet.
It helps me stay grounded to the truly important stuff that matters in a chaotic world of information overload.
It helped me be confident about my own opinions.

OnLive To Launch In UK This Autumn
Have you ever tried OnLive? It's incredibly good.
They do some very smart encoding of the video signal + they work together with ISP's so they have servers within the ISP's network.
We had a demo at the Telco operator I work at. We were super sceptical about real world preformance and our jaws dropped when we saw what OnLive could deliver. Pretty damn good. Not good enough for hard core gamers. But good enough for a casual user like me and 70% of the market.
Only bottleneck for the moment is their catalogue IMO.
FCC Wants More Time To Craft Broadband Plan
Here's what we have in Belgium:
- The government imposes every operator to have an affordable version of their broadband access. Mostly speed is limited to ADSL speeds of 5years ago and download caps only allow normal surfing/mailing. So most people can afford this.
- If you are unemployed or live on benefits you get this "light" broadband at cheaper prices.
- Once every few years the government will sponsor cheap PC/broadband bundles.
Off course these measures only work because every house is connected to a cable and/or ADSL network.
The Last GM Big-Block V-8 Rolls Off the Line
In Europe we also have GM. They're called Opel/SAAB here.
All Opel/SAAB cars have modern competitive diesel engines. So apparently, GM DID invest in new tech.
The question is, why did they not sell those engines/cars in the US?
Maybe because US consumers were not interested? I'm not being arrogant here, that's a real question. I really don't understand.
Google Releases Source To Chromium OS
90% of home users?
- What about music? All your music in the cloud? That'll be a nice upload
- What about video?
A LOT of basic home users use these things and I don't see it going in the cloud.
French Deputies Moving Against Photoshopped Ads
This site has a great collection of photoshop disasters.
It's eye opening as to HOW MANY photo's are photoshopped.
And it's funny too!
Panasonic's New LED Bulbs Shine For 19 Years
Seems an interesting comment, but I don't understand it.
Could you explain this to me?
Microsoft Bids $44.6 Billion For Yahoo
Didn't I read a story here a few days ago that the period of supervision of Microsoft for monopoly stuff has ended.
Would this have anything to do with the fact that they now bid on Yahoo?
