Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

jmcwork Offer ala carte and they win (85 comments)

If someone would offer a "you pick 50 channels for $50" service, they would win. Break it up into 5 levels and pick 10 from each. I hate paying for 300 channels when I only want / watch 20% of them. I know, there are all sorts of license, premium fees, etc. But if someone can figure a way around it...

Flash Is Not a Right

jmcwork Re:Provided... (850 comments)

But you can get about 6+ years of development kit (@$99) for one Adobe Flash ($699). Just depends on what you want to build. (Just remember Linux, g++ and OpenGL are still FREE!)

True Tales of Tech Hoarding

jmcwork But you can use some of it (268 comments)

I have recycled several systems, upgraded others and always kept the hard drives (personal info paranoia). I took one apart the other day and decided that the three very reflective platters could be arranged to make a great shaving mirror for the shower.

GameStop Sued Over Lack of DLC For Used Games

jmcwork Like buying a used car (345 comments)

Google Buys iPhone Search App, Kills It

jmcwork Looking for apps in development (223 comments)

Nintendo Working On Football Controller

jmcwork Re:Wii Sports Resort - Swordplay (123 comments)

Why are they doing all of this and still leaving behind the single best application of the wiimote - swordfights.

I think that should be the next big Wii title: "Feel a Little More Dorky"
