Electronic Arts Up For Sale?
Maxis, one of the most heartbreaking buyouts to me.
I really loved the Sim games, not The Sims, but SimCity, SimTower, SimAnt, SimFarm, SimCopter, SimIsle, etc.
What I wouldn't give for a new SimAnt or SimCopter.
Firefox Notably Improved In Tom's Hardware's Latest Browser Showdown
Just for shits and giggles I opened 40 tabs in Konqueror. Shows memory usage at 356MiB.
Whereas my Opera window with 4 tabs open is at 334MiB.
Anyone know what sites they test it with? Cause I'd like to see a fair comparison.
HP To Open Source WebOS
HP announced they were open sourcing it last month, which it says in the summary.
It doesn't explain well that HP today laid out their plans, with release dates, for a complete open source webOS.
As well as released the Enyo framework, across multiple platforms. Already seeing apps running in browsers and on Android based on it.
Today is the actual start of them opening up the source on things.
http://precentral.net/ - Multiple articles up today detailing everything that was released today.
Shareholder Fight Threatens Mandriva SA

Redhat's distro was first released October 1994 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat
World of Warcraft Goes Free With Starter Edition
It took me half a day to level from 80 - 85 when Cataclysm launched. It was me questing, only stopping to empty bags when they were full. I quested by myself, without anyone's help, and without Bind to Account gear.
Windows 95 Turns 15
Yes, but OS/2 was still way better than Win95. Win95 was 32-bit "OS" bolted on DOS. OS/2 was 32-bit from the ground up. The Windows of today has more in common with OS/2 than it has with Windows 95.
I hope it would have more in common, the Windows of today was born from Microsoft's work developing OS/2 version 3.
The Recovery Disc Rip-Off
Not all come with discs for a single model computer. Many of the iMacs I've worked with do. However, my old PowerMac G3 came with an actual normal OS Install disc, as did my girlfriend's Macbook Pro.
Palm WebOS Hacked Via SMS Messages
My Pre is running the latest 220.127.116.11 WebOS version. I tried their "exploits" on it, it did nothing, had no affect on it. In the video they're running an outdated version of WebOS, 1.3.5.
WebOS will download updates OTA automatically, and install them if you don't do it after a certain number of days. To me, the likeliness of these still being issues is close to null and void.
Lord British's Lost Lunar Rover Found, After 37 Years
Nope, it was on my C64.
Viability of Mobile Broadband For Home Use?
Then you must have the unlimited plan, which isn't offered any more. Whatever you do, do not make any changes to that plan, if you do, it'll get changed from Unlimited to 5GB limit.
Viability of Mobile Broadband For Home Use?
Actually, from working in support for these kinds of service, I can say using it in a Mobile Home sucks badly. The signal in them just drops like Windows 98 trying to access c:\con\con
Bluetooth Versus Wireless Mice
My Logitech V450 Nano Laser Mouse works very well.
I've been using it for going on 3 months now, and haven't had to change the batteries yet. It runs on 2 AA. Battery meter in their optional software says it's still at 85%. I play several hours of WoW every day when I get off work, plus use it for several hours playing Call of Duty 4 each week.
It responds really well, better than my previous usb wired mouse I had.
NASA Shows Off Mock-Up of Mars-Capable Spacecraft
You forgot the very first Apollo where the crew was killed before they could ever launch.
USB Tethering Working On iPhone 3.0 Through Hack
Smartphone and Tethering are not provisioned the same. Tethering has it's own access point. If it's not provisioned on the plan, then you wouldn't be able to connect properly.
The tethering plans are now $59.99 for 5GB. There are two other low usage plans, but aren't worth mentioning.
At least that's how it is at AT&T, where I work.
Living Free With Linux, Round 2
Worked fine on mine, after I installed the GNU bin utilities for Dos.
Psion Accuses Intel of Cybersquatting
Netpad is a device by Psion, I'm sure they probably have that one trademarked as well.
Crocodiles With Frickin' Magnets Attached to Their Heads
The American Crocodile is a threatened species, and is therefor illegal to kill.
Windows 7 To Come In Multiple Versions
You missed Windows XP 64-Bit Edition, which is the version for Itanium processors.
KDE 4.2 Is Released
Why won't they let you turn off that stupid search in krunner so you can actually use the damn thing with out having to wait for it to catch up to your typing?
PS2 the Most Played Console In 2008
Not sure about you, but I play my Atari VCS.
