Cherry's New Keyboard Switches Emulate IBM Model M Feel
They're rather good but not the same as a vintage M, even the lexmark ones. The caps aren't finished as nice, the plastic feels cheaper and, the ones I've tried anyway, have a lighter touch.
Roundup Tolerant GM Maize Linked To Tumor Development
Do you live on water? Glutamate is in everything.
DARPA's Robo-Cheetah Is Now Faster Than Usain Bolt
Now cheetah? This platform is everything to everybody! Has it actually found a usable man-portable power source yet or what?
Apple Says "No" To Releasing New Dock Connector Specs
People just don't take care of things. I use my seven year old ipod cable with my touch and it's fine. The current cables are better built still, with sturdier ends. Do they all own rabbits or something?
Staples Executive Outs Six New Kindle Fire Tablets
This isn't really unique to Amazon so it's hard to fault them for it. You can spend thousands upon thousands of USD on a brand new camera abroad and it won't be warranted outside of whatever zone you purchased it in.
HP Asks Judge To Enforce Itanium Contract Vs. Oracle
he extends sympathies.
Ask Slashdot: Best Headphones, Earbuds, Earphones?
Yeah these are still great, still lifetime warranty too. Their Pro4AA are one of my favorite 'cheap' closed phones, but they're not especially portable.
Is Google the New Microsoft?
So... when is google auctions coming to make a google wallet worth having?
Posting Photos of Olympics Could Land You In Court
Oh, I don't know. You've got the high caloric count to fuel some of the hardest working sportsmen in history, high protein and fat to keep their muscles, and high salt to help them with water retention. Sounds like pretty good food for world class athletes.
Everyone else on the other hand~
New iPad Jailbroken Already
I wouldn't use it for recording, but it's definitely the best synth module to come out in years. Way cheaper than a Muse, actually has developers unlike the Varios. Hell, if all you used it for was Korg iMS20 it'd be worth it.
Comparing Today's Computers To 1995's
I loved the *hardware* co-processing that was available. There were radius rocket boards that could operate as either a straight upgrade or you could run multiple OSes, on multiple cards, on the same machine. The IIe card was a fully expanded IIe on a board that could use II family disks and peripherals. I seem to recall both Apple branded and third party (OrangePC?) x86 SBCs to allow for running PC stuff too.
Iwata Confirms Nintendo Network, New Wii U Controller Functions
Now all that's left to see is if the Wii U will be Nintendo's 7800.
Notes On Reducing Firefox's Memory Consumption
I was ready to head back to Opera when I found Pale Moon, it really is great.
Why Fuel Efficiency Advances Haven't Translated To Better Gas Mileage
This a hundred times. The old Hilux, Mitsubishis, Rangers, even the small Dakotas were great little trucks. Nobody bothers with small light trucks. :(
It's not just trucks though, look at the Civic. It's bigger than the Accord used to be! Doesn't get 50mpg on the highway anymore either.
The Rise and Fall of Kodak
they should have worked on a digital camera that outputs film style pictures.
Eh, it didn't work out well for Fujifilm. Granted their S-series models were anchored by their ridiculous xD memory format, but the later ones weren't and still didn't do well outside of, maybe, wedding photographers. Those things put out some of the nicest film-like images I've seen and the market didn't really care.
Ham Radio Licenses Top 700,000, An All-Time High
I can't believe how much bulk rolls of tri-x are now :(
Have you tried any of the cheap B&W films that have come out in the last few years?
Ask Slashdot: Tablet With Root Access By Default?
They also just added RDP support along with the ios5 patch. It's really a great app.
HP Rethinking Wisdom of Spinning Off PC Division
Especially Best Buy which is, I'm sure, a not insignificant partner. After the complete abortion that was Touchpad, retail stores are going to be hesitant about stocking up on product. HP shipped units to them, then almost immediately tanked the price and ran.
AA batteries of any kind in my residence:
I've been pleased with the performance of the Duracell rechargeables. Even the older, lower-rated ones recycled faster than alkalines in my flashes. That said, if I were really concerned with recycle time, or working professionally, I would skip over the lithiums and just buy a Quantum SLA battpack. They last forever and are cheap to replace the cells when they die. Versus chewing through lithiums, I'm sure it'd pay for itself damn quick too.
Ridley Scott To Direct New Blade Runner Movie
You don't have to have a direct sequelâ" Ghost in the Shell and Innocence. I'd hope Scott could use familiar entities, 'Runners, Tyrell Corp, foo, to tell a new story but we'll see. If it gets out of development hell, I'll be amazed.
