Microsoft Drops Xbox 360 Pricing

spazoid12 No plans for a smaller version?? (169 comments)

Microsoft has "no plans" for a smaller version of the 360.

Oh, you mean something that is even more likely to overheat and would probably exceed the current awesome 50-whatever% failure rate?

Yeah, I want that!

Flying car finally a little more car-like

spazoid12 spazoid12 writes  |  more than 5 years ago

spazoid12 (525450) writes "In the early morning hours of March 5, at Plattsburgh (New York) International Airport, test pilot Phil Meteer, a retired US Air Force colonel, made the first flight of the Terrafugia Transition. Often referred to as a flying car, the Transition is a two-seat, roadable aircraft designed to take off and land at local airports and drive on any road.

35 years after Scaramanga flew away in a modified AMC Matador in the movie "The Man With The Golden Gun", the flying car is finally starting to resemble something... car-like. With push-button convenience the Terrafugia converts from front-wheel-drive car to airplane. Just don't press that button while in the air.

Now it just needs for the wings to completely "disappear" into storage, some Ferrari red paint, and a Decepticons decal."

T-Mobile Hotspot @Home as GPL violation??

spazoid12 (525450) writes "Where's the code?

T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home already brings WiFi VoIP to compatible cell phones, and a recent FCC filing from T-Mobile and Linksys indicates that soon all the phones in your home will be able to get in on the action. The WAP, from Linksys, is the WRTU54G.

From CNET (http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phone-and-smart/t-mobile-hotspot-home/4505-6448_7-32486222.html?tag=txt):
"When you first sign up, you'll receive a complimentary wireless router that's optimized to be used with the Hotspot @Home service. Our review model was a Linksys, which is exactly the same as the Linksys WRT54G, except for a few software tweaks designed by T-Mobile."

I went looking for the source for T-Mobile's modifications but came up with nothing. The Linksys device, as you know, uses GPL code. The T-Mobile modified version of the Linksys device does as well and therefore one wonders if T-Mobile will eventually release the code or remain in violation of the GPL."
