maliqua I've had 5 blacberries (64 comments)

They've been making self destructing phones for quite some time now.

The Case For Flipping Your Monitor From Landscape to Portrait

maliqua Umm, i dont run full screen windows (567 comments)

A decent wide screen monitor has large work place for main activity and a band on the side perfect for windows containing reference material, or make it more 50/50 split if references are heavy.

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

maliqua What irks me the most (700 comments)

The thing that really bugs me the most about this is, they don't have to make counterfeit chips to sell them, if they simply made another chip that used an ssop-24 or whatever standard case the FTDI ones use, and made it pin compatible, but released it under their own name, people would still buy them, most people buying cheap chips from china know they're not getting an ftdi chip, they don't really care they want something so they can build to a price and include X functionality.

If the silicon itself is a unique design (and i'm not saying it is) then they would be totally above board..
