The Ignominious Fall of Dell

stickytar Were the accused stand guilty (604 comments)

I'm all for Dell bashing, but what happened to America where the accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty. It seems like every lawsuit implies some guilt on the part of the accused? Really?

IE9 Throws Down the Hardware Acceleration Gauntlet

stickytar Re:Why bother ... (601 comments)

But will it run Crysis? No mod points, but parent is right. Technology like this will move real games into the browser. I won't be long before the DirectX toolset it setup to render in HTML5. If Microsoft can grab this then their little netbooks with shared GPU could actually push out some decent gaming and graphic capabilities to you live in a browser (without the need for hard drives).

Wi-Fi Direct Overlaps Bluetooth Territory For Connecting Devices

stickytar Re:The beef of Bluetooth is in profiles, not the l (152 comments)

Mod parent up, Bluetooth 3 is on the right track. WiFi radios are so battery expensive, but hugely beneficial in transferring large data files. BT3 will have the ability for the profile to initiate a secure direct WiFi connection only for the life span of the transfer and then turn off the radios again thus keeping this as low-power impacting as possible. Until someone comes up with low power WiFi, BT will be around for a long time.

Mod parent up. This is the solution. You should not be relying on external DNS to resolve internal IP assets.

Depends on your contract with work. If you are truly "working" on the clock when you are at home (e.g., dabbling in some work whilst inventing things) then it could be construed as company intellectual property. Clean lines. Make them.
