Dell to Get Into Cell Phones in 2006

pholower Great for Competition (157 comments)

Although this seems like a mistake, Dell may actually be able to encourage the market on cheaper smart phones. The article, if you read, went into absolutely no detail about the phone but one can assume it is a smartphone. With competitive forces like Dell (which seems to be all dell is good at as of late) Treo and Blackberry are going to have a run for their money. I am all for more choices and better competition in this market, but to whom will they offer their services will be the next question. Will it be a brand specific deal, or will they provide to the masses and make it available to all major carriers?

More Tech News!

pholower pholower writes  |  more than 9 years ago I have recently added a new section to my website pholower.com. If you have any slashdot submissions that get rejected but feel they are newsworthy, please email them to me and I will post them in the techblog section of my site. There are a lot of good, and important stories that get rejected here at slashdot, why shouldn't you be able to read them too?

The mini Slashdot effect

pholower pholower writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I tried something today that proves how many people really have nother better to do when they are on slashdot.

In my signature, I put the link to my homepage. Now since this is just a personal site. I don't intend on having more than a handful of people go to my site in a day. But in just 5 hours, my signature link brought in over 700 page hits, out of that 236 unique visitors from all over the world.

I am glad my site doesn't contain any tech stuff, else my site might just get featured on slashdot, then all hell would break loose. No telling when I would be able to get my site back up if that happened.


The Slashdot Backlash

pholower pholower writes  |  more than 10 years ago

It has occured to me after viewing a few articles release in the past couple of days that it does not matter what the content of the reply is, if you do it quickly, it will be modded up.

This seems to be a rather bad way of going about things. If the moderating system is to get any better, they should hold of on modding new posts for 10 minutes, this is when the big flood of comments are made.

Better comments should then be rewarded and horribly bad, "it will all be better if you put linux in it", "my grandmother uses Linux," "SCO Sucks," should be modded down.

But of course I am trying to live in a perfect world and that will not happen any time soon, even if Kernel Version 4 were to come out in the next month. Seeing how it has been over ten years since Kernal 1.0 and they are only on 2.6 I don't think this will be happening anytime soon.
