Sep 10th 2008 2:15AM Well the question I cann not find anywhere on teh internet is if 3rd party application push notification is enabled in 2.1. Thats all I really want and I sure hope it is and the apps just need to be updated.
Jul 1st 2007 10:26PM Prepaid accounts dont require contracts! So you can have the iphoen for $500 and use it but quit when you want. NICE!
Jun 29th 2007 8:21PM I am looking foward to the internet capibilities and finally having full integration with my mac unlike my old treo!
Apr 2nd 2007 12:00PM Umm Mr. Nevelo S I believe you are wrong. You can get full digital sound via optical cable. Optical sound actually works better then HDMI in most cases because it can do the same quality and is more adapted to the receievers.
Apr 1st 2007 1:43PM Well from what it sounds like those of us with the current gen xbox 360 using vga and optical will actually get better sound then those who get the elite? II have mine set up that way to my surround sound and I thought i was getting TrueHD audio when I was watching movies through th ehd-dvd player? Am I wrong?
Oct 1st 2006 11:57PM I think the ZUne looks too bulky and wierd looking if held in teh hand.
But it is a good 1st Generation Zune. It will take a couple incarnations of it if it can survive. The Ipod now is just too much to battle with. I dont think the wifi can keep them afloat. They need something groundbreaking that people want.
The problem is with Microsoft is that they tell teh consumer they want this kool new tech (like wifi) Apple addapts what ppl want to their tech (like itunes and the new search feature) They are simple but effective.
Sep 19th 2006 11:23PM It is all about convience.
I can dl the movie to the ipod
Plug it into the 54" hd tv and get near dvd quality
Enjoy not having to leave my house and save a bit of money.
Dont get me wrong I love HD, 5.1 (and up) surround sounud, and all the other stuff. But frankly the people who read TUAW and the people who run out to get the latest and greatest tech like most of us are not the target audience for Itunes movies.
The target is teens who get the itunes cards and dont have cars and stuff like that. Also another target is the common middle class adult. They deal with tech they know they like movies, but they dont know how to rip dvds and everything else.
It would be great for itunes to offere hd movies in 5.1 and have the extras and commentaries and everything. Basically bandwidth restricts them. The common person does not want to wait all night for the dvd to dl through their normal cable line. They want in within the hour and just by clicking one button.
Easy and simple, thats what Apple is all about.
Sep 16th 2006 12:21PM no penny arcade, ctrl-alt-del, vg cats, and hlcomics?? They win and they are the best. Where are they?
Aug 3rd 2006 11:38PM There are a few things that are wrong in the video and article.
1. the guy in the video says hey this inst a max osx problem its a driver problem, yet the article bashes the security in macs as hard as he can.
2.this is really unrealistic because the user has to acces the network the hacker has up (not likely). Also the hacker would have to be in a realitivlyy close proximity.
3. If you have a macbook why would you use a wifi card??? You have built it wifi and it is more protected then 3rd party brands.
This is a really weak attack on how unsecure macs are. I know they are not the fortress some people believe. It can be hacked. But this attack i think is alil blown up jsut to discredit Macs.
Apr 26th 2006 10:33AM What mod are you using that tells you how many more kills you need to level. I have titan but idk if that mod is bundled with what i have.
