Windows 7 RTM Reviewed & Benchmarked

wfWebber Re:Great goals (792 comments)

So basically you're blaming windows for being able to run applications that have a crappy design? I suppose that's correct. There are of course registry tweaks you can do to make shutting down faster. Like forcing apps closed that take too long and shortening the timeout. No idea what that would do for data integrity though. (Actually, I do have an idea).

Open Source Usability — Joomla! Vs. WordPress

wfWebber Re:Quite fair (240 comments)

Same here. It's not too hard to use an existing template for better looks, but once you want to make things look like you want, you'll need to delve into template building. Not for the weakhearted. On the other hand, I'm not too sure WP would score higher on this one.

Competition For the App Store Is Mounting

wfWebber Re:Not because there's only 1 (136 comments)

I'm the other way around. I bought a developer phone (basically an unlocked G1) to see if it would be a reasonable platform to develop for. I switched from my HTC Touch HD (which I thought was one of the best phones around) and haven't looked back since. This is the phone that feels great. It's fast, it has a shitload of great little apps and hasn't let me down once so far. I've tried Symbian, WinMo and all kinds of other stuff, but Android really works best. Of course the G1 has issues; the battery sucks big time and it could have been half it size. The moment that's fixed, the competition really has something to watch out for.

Retailer Planning Laptops With Intel Core i7 Chips

wfWebber Clevo (142 comments)

Looking at the model and at the type number (D900F) I'm gonna guess this is another Clevo, branded as something Canadian. It's probably gonna be okay, as long as you don't want it on your lap and don't want to use it without a wall socket. Then again, who'd want that for a laptop anyway?
