Brazilian billionaire wants Apple manufacturing contract {}

Nov 17th 2010 9:33PM I believe the wages are higher in Brazil than in China. It may not be worth the swap, depending on how big the price increase is from Foxconn.

Jul 7th 2010 6:34PM @(Unverified) This is an arcade racer. GT5 is a sim racer. Different things, united only because they have cars in both games.

Mac Mini gets a sneaky update: spec bump, unibody enclosure, HDMI {}

Jun 15th 2010 4:51AM And with that HDMI, Apple officially kills the Apple TV. :/

Apple throws Adobe a bone -- on the Mac {}

Apr 22nd 2010 7:40PM Probably using different codecs. You can compare hardware-acceleration vs. software-acceleration by playing an H.264 video in VLC and QuickTime X at the same time and see which one uses more CPU.

And in regards to your point about Apple pushing proprietary formats, the only closed-source format Apple is behind is H.264 (which wasn't even created by them). The rest are all open-source (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript).

Flash, on the other hand, is controlled by Adobe alone.

I hate Flash's performance on the Mac and that's why I support Apple's stance in this case, but if Adobe proves Apple wrong, then I'll be more than happy to bug Apple to re-consider.

Acer fulfills prophecy, overtakes Dell as number two PC maker worldwide (update) {Engadget}

Oct 14th 2009 8:21PM Number 'tow'? I'm unfamiliar with that number.

Worldwide Mac: getting online in New Zealand {}

Jun 13th 2009 6:15AM 7500 kbps only gives you about 750KB/s download, which is exactly what the author posted.

But yeah, compared to other countries, NZ's internet service is poor to say the least. Back in Brazil, that same US$100 got me 8Mb/s uncapped traffic on cable, plus the premium TV package with multi-room (4 points).

The problem, as someone already posted before, is the lack of investments on infrastructure until recently.

The end of vanilla WoW {WoW}

May 4th 2009 8:19PM I definitely enjoy (yes, enjoy) leveling from 1. I haven't even gotten any chars to 80 (my main is 63 at the moment), but you can't say there isn't fun in leveling those first levels of a new char.

Maybe creating an alternative path to those wanting to start from a higher level? Not using R-A-F, but like the did with DKs.

Beta Beat: TweetDeck ripe with potential {}

Mar 5th 2009 4:20PM Twitterrific just sucks. No way to type all the text first and then be able to shorten it, no way to shorten a URL before you actually type in the text, no way to search.

To be honest, the best one I've found so far is DestroyTwitter with its concept of canvases.
