WRUP: Der Gamescom, Die Gamescom? Das Gamescom? {Joystiq}

Aug 20th 2011 4:53AM @Cylar56

no, sorry, it isn't "das", it is "die". Fully spoken it is "die Gamescom-Messe" or "die Gamescom-Veranstaltung", making the shorthand female too. It is also used female on the website by the way ("Die gamescom 2011 ist die weltweit größte Handels- und Medienplattform der Branche.")

We Dare Aussie rating under review {Joystiq}

and they get a 6+ rating.

E Ink shows off next-gen displays: high contrast, fast refresh, and rugged (video) {Engadget}

It exits, but it has drawbacks: Three times the redraw time (and battery usage) when you refresh the screen and the colours are still pretty washed out.

Apr 21st 2010 10:16AM I want this for the Kindle 3, looks and sounds really great.

While the 1366-platform is indeed a lot more expensive you can get mainboards with USB 3.0 and SATA-600 without a problem for it. Still, in the long-run 1156 seems the better choice, but then again, I don't plan to replace my 1366-i7 920@3.3Ghz until the next big platform change anyway.

The Settlers 7 pre-order bonus and gold edition detailed {Joystiq}

Feb 23rd 2010 1:47AM Yeah, can't see me buying it. Settler 6 was a disappointment, and while 7 looks a lot better again the DRM issue turns me off. I have no problem with the game phoning home at the installation or being tied to an account (I buy 70 % of my games over Steam anyway), but I have a problem if I can't play because my internet connection or the Ubisoft server has a problem and that I have to trust Ubisoft to keep my savegames intact.

The failure of the beta defense {Massively}

Jan 23rd 2010 1:48AM "as long as the game/item exists" is the definition of any lifetime subscription.

The failure of the beta defense {Massively}

Jan 23rd 2010 1:47AM Considering how much the game improved with the last patch I'm quite confident that the game will be a lot better and more playable than the Beta version. Yes, "it's Beta" is a stupid excuse 2 weeks before launch, but it was an old client with STO and they do indeed work hard fixing things.

Paradigm Shift intros 5- and 7-inch readers with color (LCD) displays {Engadget}

Dec 31st 2009 5:07AM @wmac
It doesn't use e-ink and is worthless as device for reading documents because of this in my opinion. Reading e-ink is like reading printed paper. Reading from an LCD is like reading from an LCD - tiresome and leading to burning eyes.

Barnes & Noble Nook review {Engadget}

Dec 7th 2009 1:15AM Seeing this video makes me really appreciate the many buttons on my Kindle (although I could do without the keyboard since I mostly read on it). The Kindle isn't exactly fast, but loading up the book in the video was pretty painful. Maybe v2 of the nook will be something I buy, since the basic concept is really interesting, but the execution isn't there yet (not enough CPU power?).

I don't understand why makers don't use a scrollwheel any more. It allows you to run through menus/coverflow-screens very quickly without the hassle of a touchscreen not responding to quick/sweeping gestures while taking away basically no room at all.
