The Mystery of the 'Only Camera To Come Back From the Moon'

mholve Nonsense (54 comments)

Like all Hasselblad V cameras, the rear features a detachable magazine, which in turns holds the film; either 120 or 70mm. An internal darkslide allows you to change magazines mid-roll if you wanted to (say if switching from color to black and white film or for changing to a slower/faster ISO film).

mholve Re:Define "Survive" (497 comments)

So now we're supposed to cheer for Ballmer to stay?

Depending on your point of view... Perhaps. :)

They're not doing so well on the other fronts either. I think Ballmer needs to go - if Microsoft is to survive. ;)

AT&T: Don't Want a Data Plan for That Smartphone? Too Bad.

mholve Here's what I got... (798 comments)

Using a SIM card from a Motorola RAZR in an iPhone worked for many years - and why not? I never used the data side. Ever. One day I get an email from AT&T saying I've been put into a data plan, with no options out.

Dear Valued Customer,

We hope you are enjoying your iPhone! We appreciate and value your business and want to be sure you are aware of a change we've made to your account to ensure you have the best possible experience with data usage in the United States.

iPhones are made for data consumption-surfing the web, social networking, email and more. That's why we require an iPhone data plan in conjunction with our iPhones. This ensures that customers with data intensive devices are not unpleasantly surprised with high data pay-per-use charges.

For whatever reason, our records indicate your iPhone does not have an eligible data plan. We have added an appropriate data plan for your iPhone.

If you would like to select another iPhone data plan or have questions, please call 1-800-331-0500 (or 611 from your wireless phone). You can also visit www.att.com/myATT to manage your account. For additional information about iPhone plan requirements visit www.att.com/dataplans.

Thank you for being an AT&T customer. We look forward to continuing to provide you with a great iPhone experience.

Expenditure Report Reveals Germany Monitors Skype, Google Mail, Facebook Chat

mholve Surprised? (89 comments)

I'm not. Any modern government (law enforcement or intelligence agencies) would or at least should have this capability. The real question is, do they use it without warrants, use it in an indiscriminant fashion, etc. If they were going after a legitimate suspect, they should have the capability to do so.

Cherry MX Mechanical Keyboard Switches Compared

mholve Mac Users (223 comments)

For Mac users, check out the Matias "Tactile Pro" keyboard. All the Model M clickiness you can stand, but with all the Mac symbols printed on the keyboard. I've got one myself, and it's a real pleasure.

mholve GUI Design - MIA? (369 comments)

I'm wondering that they're thinking with the GUI... Applications go all-white, the rest (and dialog boxes, etc.) are color... Buttons and other controls are all "flat" now.

It would appear to me, that the GUI has devolved for the sake of simplicity - or something.

PC Sales Are Flat-Lining

mholve Disposable income is what's flatlining (485 comments)

What little disposable income people have in this economy these days is going to cheaper, more mobile devices. Not so much smartphones, but clearly tablets - and the largest percentage (60% or so IIRC) going to Apple's iPad.
