Google Tweaks Buzz To Tackle Privacy Concerns

seanmeister Re:The real story (153 comments)

I agree about the importance of privacy regardless of where you register on the something-to-hide-o-meter, and I agree that Google really dropped the ball on Buzz's privacy settings, but at the same time you really need to question the wisdom of using a "private Gmail account" for anything other than Gmail. Google's been ladling the social sauce on to all of their services over the past couple of years, so it's not like that person didn't have the opportunity to see this coming.

Hands-On Look At the BlackBerry Storm 2

seanmeister Re:If they want the storm2 to be more successful.. (213 comments)

You can bash VZW's CDMA network all you want, but as long as they keep giving me 4 bars of EVDO goodness out here in the desert in rural southwestern New Mexico, they'll get nothing but love from me :)

Hands-On Look At the BlackBerry Storm 2

seanmeister Re:No Way... (213 comments)

Amen. I bought the Storm. What a complete piece of shit. Sluggish OS (in a touch screen OS, absolutely intolerable), graphical glitches abound... it just sucks.

Agreed... I bought the original Storm when it was released last year, It was my first BlackBerry device, and after struggling with the Storm for a few days, I ran away screaming back to my dumbphone. The Storm hardware and software were definitely not ready for prime time.

I recently decided to give BlackBerry another day in court and am currently using a Curve 8330... I like it quite a lot and am considering the Storm 2 as my next upgrade, but I'll definitely do some hands-on testing before I actually purchase it.

DTV Converters In Short Supply

seanmeister Good thing? (192 comments)

Good thing the extended cut-off date was approved.

Bullshit - the original cut-off date was advertised for years. Anyone who's affected by the transition and *still* isn't ready for it should probably be watching less TV.

Netflix Extends "Watch Instantly" To Mac Users

seanmeister No opt out (205 comments)

You can't opt back out of the beta once you opt in, so caveat emptor. I learned this the hard way after I found out that the Silverlight player doesn't seem to utilize the full-screen video overlay when playing over s-video from my laptop.

After a seven-hour delay, the first launch from a commercial spaceport in the US took place in the high desert hills of New Mexico, about 45 miles north of Las Cruces. Officials say the rocket that took off from New Mexico's spaceport crash-landed in the desert after a few minutes in the air, failing in its mission to reach sub-orbital space. It wasn't immediately clear where the rocket landed, or what condition it was in.
Guess I can stop peeking out of my window :("
