Samsung's single-chip 7-inch LCD {Engadget}

May 4th 2006 11:11AM Well I'm glad we cleared up the confusion on that issue.

Back to the point... I wonder when they'll have a touch screen version so us UMPC users will actually benefit from it.

Fiat Panda Alessi unveiled at UK home show {Autoblog}

Mar 9th 2006 11:56AM I know retro is in, but did they really have to bring this back straight from 1982?

I think I had those same wheels on my CVCC hatch back in the day.

Seagate doesn't launch Wireless USB drives {Engadget}

Mar 8th 2006 11:34AM I'd imagine that the same rules would apply as if you were reading/writing to the good ole A:/B:/ drives.

First the drive goes haywire, then the error message pops up and you have to Abort/Fail/Retry the process.

Doesn't seem that complicated as most drives don't really -erase- anything off of themselves nowadays anyway.

Power Leveling Professions {WoW}

Feb 28th 2006 10:01AM Yes, but where is my fishing guide?!?

It's not really RP if my chars can't fish and drink er, mead, while avoiding their spouses and duties at home, involve demotions in their professions, and um... a '78 El Camino.

Oh well, WoW for rednecks will probably be posted on a truck stop wall before it hits the internet. Se la vie.

HyMotion's PHEV battery lets you plug in your hybrid {Engadget}

Feb 24th 2006 11:41AM Yes, but you're forgeting two things... first I can stick it to the gas stations that are overpricing things and second, there's a fancy tax writeoff for the purchase of a hybrid or electric vehicle that more than makes up for that five grand loss.

Nikon Coolpix L, P, and S-series cameras unveiled {Engadget}

Feb 21st 2006 9:01AM Maybe I haven't been paying attention in school enough... but could someone tell me why I need WiFi on my camera?

My phone has it, my PDA has it, my laptop has it and my mp3 player has it.. Heck, my keys just about have it. Isn't this getting a little silly here?

Latest crackpot rumor: Apple to add "touch finger LCDs" {Engadget}

Feb 20th 2006 11:55AM I just checked the crystal ball over here and I saw what looked like an LCD keybord, one that could have a US std. keyboard, and the switch to an asian script style keyboard with the flip of a single swith. Not to mention programmable keys for "Xtreme" gaming boards, a writing/signing implementation for editing documents "by hand." Then there's these whole shenanigans about a backlit keyboard as well, but that's just ridiculous.

Scientists working on method to turn off your walls {Engadget}

Feb 20th 2006 9:27AM The electrochromic windows work by applying a small electric charge to a special sheet of glass, thus bringing all of the electrons to an excited state where they will generall face the same direction (or something to that point).

That requires a special sheet of glass. This article makes it sound like they're gonna turn just a regular sheet of drywall or plaster wall invisible. Thus I declare shenanigans.

However, wasn't there a Star Trek movie where they had to go back in time and kidnap a whale or something. They had to "invent" a clear aluminium some several hundred years beforehand to do so.

I dunno, I watched a lot of tv as a child, prolly rotted my brain as much as half these articles do.

Petabyte disks coming in 5 years? {Engadget}

Feb 20th 2006 9:20AM Rewritable?!?

That's what they said about the CD's too, isn't it?

The more space programmers have, the crappier their code becomes. More room for errors, mistakes, easter eggs, virii, codecs, malware, driver conflicts, and generally bad stuff all around.

I remember playing the good ol Kings Quest on a god-awful 12 or 16 floppies. There was no room for crap back then. Now days each vendor has their own hardware configuration tools, browser, and ip sniffer packagage in with everything else.
