Ask Engadget: Best wireless laptop / mobile mouse? {Engadget}

Sep 17th 2009 11:40PM I like the Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000.

My BT experience is *mostly* good. The negatives for BT are mixing mouse & audio simultaneously is difficult. If you do make sure your BT receiver is on a high-speed USB port and it's BT 2.1 or better.

Even then bluetooth drivers matter a lot. So far with Vista the Microsoft drivers have turned out best. Bluesoleil drivers used to be ok, but I've had bad stability with them after the latest versions.

Pioneer's new CDJ-2000 DJ deck hopped up with a 6.1-inch LCD, new features {Engadget}

Sep 17th 2009 12:52PM GD that's what you get for mixing up your shit.

Vinyl "fans" have two sticking points: audio *quality* and table *control* (or more likely a pure artistry of turntablism).

You argued for quality by belittling playing from MP3 (and calling CDJ players cheapskates) and now you're pretending that your only argument was for control (arguing for a final scratch / scratch live setup "carrying only two vinyls").

192kbps vs VBR vs 384kbps vs ZOMG VINYL IS INFINITY KBPS is a shit argument. You (anyone who is over 21 and has spent anytime in the real world of music) can't tell the difference. Whining about how it's not a pure analog pitch-bend if you're not on vinyl is hipster shit.

Just by the fact that you brought up DVS you abdicated any claim to greater quality. Since you whined about MP3 DJ's paying for vinyl you fucked up your own economic argument. You're a mess.

Technics are for stacking up 5 plates for a scratch-off and analog fetishists. It is a quaint art form that (while I have respect for it...) is slowly dying. All of the tricks you can do with vinyl have been done in the last 30 years of the art. It's time to use our new tools to create a new cdj-tablism art.

Phoenix Freeze turns your Bluetooth phone into a proximity lock {Engadget}

May 6th 2009 5:22PM great... so next time I forget my phone my coworkers get to change my language settings on me

Engadget's recession antidote: win a KORG KAOSSILATOR and a copy of Matt & Kim's album "Grand" {Engadget}

May 4th 2009 2:29PM I'll improve the economy by quitting my job to become a full-time music producer.

My shareholders will see a short-term improvement in corporate cash flow. Such a windfall will undoubtedly encourage them to spend spend spend!

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3 answers a million prayers {Engadget}

Mar 19th 2009 6:46PM So what's the code for the "PS" button with the Nyko?

Really I don't need to turn mine on/off, but I do need to hit the "PS" button to get out of f@h to watch a BD.

Interview: Jame of WoW-Pro {WoW}

Mar 13th 2009 4:15PM You make the incorrect assumption that I have not followed James' guides. If you're sitll not paying attention, I have followed Jame's guide TO THE LETTER on at least 4 characters and I see room for marking many quests skippable. Skipping all of HFP or Zang would be stupid. Don't pretend I'm recommending that path.

Tell me what quests optimize with "Smooth as Butter" - gathering gears? No. You can easily collect all the required parts for the gears and have maybe 4 buzzard wings.

There are many other quests like this where one quest's completion always lags far far behind the others. Leveling guides are *primarily* for speed and quality of rewards. Jame's guides are 100% coverage of Outland zones and that does not mean they are the fastest. His classic WoW guides are much better, they lead you through very specific zones and pick up exactly the synergy you need to reach 59 quickly.

Interview: Jame of WoW-Pro {WoW}

Mar 5th 2009 11:59PM James guides are fine if you want to clear all the content from Hellfire to Nagrand, and then go from Fjord to Hills.

However I find, especially with the Outlands guide that there are many quests that do not deserve my attention. I suppose after leveling enough 70's I should write my own Outlands leveling guide.

Core i7-packin' Clevo D900F gaming laptop hands-off {Engadget}

Mar 4th 2009 2:10PM practical battery life of my non-SLI D900C is about 45 minutes.

Of course that's with WoW fired up (~25fps in raid, pegged at 60 when plugged in) and a 3G WWAN connection going.

Data Copy and Internet Connection Sharing dongle explains itself {Engadget}

Feb 25th 2009 9:14PM @matty as someone who has actually done such a thing, it sucks in XP, easier to do in Vista, and is almost impossible to do without a crossover cable (i.e. ICS with WiFi peer and hardwire upstream)
