Microsoft Releases Kinect For Windows

kingcool1432 Re:Still fairly affordable (130 comments)

Also, from the article: "Although you will be able to download the SDK and use it with an existing Kinect for Xbox 360 for your own, personal development purposes <snip>"

Sounds good enough for hobbyists.

JavaScript Toolkit V1.1.0 Released

kingcool1432 Underscore.js (65 comments)

I admit I haven't heard of this before but a quick glance through the documentation reveals nothing that any CS student couldn't knock out with a couple days work. Compared to the excellent Underscore.js (http://documentcloud.github.com/underscore/) this comes out as a damp squib. Am I missing something?

Google Rolls Out Chrome 7

kingcool1432 Re:Where is print preview for God's sake? (292 comments)

It's already there in the latest Chrome Canary builds (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/chromesxs) though you do have to go to "about:flags" to turn it on. It's apparently scheduled for release in Chrome 9.

I suppose the missing "</p>" tag on your IE-only site best reflects the spirit of your post :)

The video site is unusable (literally) if you have the debug version of Flash Player installed. I keep getting this error popup which says Error #2044: Unhandled AsyncErrorEvent:. text=Error #2095: SmartPreviewNetStream was unable to invoke callback onMetaData. error=ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property onMetaData not found on SmartPreviewNetStream and there is no default value. at SmartPreview() at SmartPreview_fla::MainTimeline/frame1()

Penny Arcade On NPR

kingcool1432 Link? (128 comments)

Would it be too much to expect the summary to actually link to this Penny Arcade comic? Or should I go crawl back under the rock I've been living in? :) Anyway, for the too-lazy-to-google set, here's the link http://www.penny-arcade.com/

First Look At Windows 7 Beta 1

kingcool1432 Re:Shill me one more time!!! (898 comments)

Are Magazines/Tech review sites/Editorials real anymore or are they just industry backed reviews (aka advertisements)? Is advertisement driven content real journalism?

I remember almost every tech journal I picked up a couple years ago reviewed Vista as the "New Coming". Yet, a year later these journals are bemoaning how Vista "sucks" (which it does btw).

Er. So? They're shills when they say it is awesome, but they speak the truth if they say it sucks later on. Because you know, Microsoft only pays them to gush about Betas.

As for Windows 7 feeling "so much more responsive".. well, depends who is paying you to write that review innit?

Check out http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/11/10/1522246&from=rss . Even though the article does look at the perceived increase in speed with one raised eyebrow, the comments in that article should be pretty insightful.
