The mactards say
"Mac's dont get viruses and trojans. we are safe"
Well I hope words like these are being eaten, along with some slices of humble pie from the oven of shame set at gas mark egg-on-your-face.
There will be more malware like this coming to a mac near you soon, a lot more.
I agree with the first poster. I bought a RunCore pro card for my Eee 900 - its now a serious computer - I'm getting 120Mb read and 80Mb write speeds from it... OK, it was quite a bit more pricey than this crucial unit, but well worth the extra dosh.
Big lorry in warzone =
large target for a roadside bomb or RPG.
Stop the fail truck, I want to get off ;)
a miss, but...
A 500 pound bomb at that kind of range would blow the car to bits!
Why competition and better browser performance is good
Competition is a good thing!
Are there better options for the HDD? for £1000, i would expect something significantly better than a 5400 RPM HDD, which is woefully underpowered for this kind of rig, any probably why the reviewer said that vista didnt feel 'snappy'.
Have you seen any Japanese TV?
Its not surprising they dont want DVR's - Japanese TV is, on the whole, utter trash - variety shows and such like. I'm sure if they had some compelling content like El Beeb occasionally puts out, the Japanese would be all over DVR tech.
Paris - because she needs a good DVR'ing
...a huge diesel engine for powering the sucker, but judging from the size of those 'thermal interface' ports, you are going to need a HUGE watercooling system to lug about on your laser tank, with a nice big radiator... which would make compelling target for an RPG methinks.
I've been buying my pc games recently from Steam, based in the US, and paying in USD. I'm not sure if these sales on steam get included in UK figures, but its far more convienient to download a game rather than going to a high street store. AND games coming from steam dont need to have a pesky DVD inserted before you can play.
Just for its absurdity...
... you gotta love it.
These will easily be able to fly into enemy territory - the enemy wont want to shoot them down for fear of getting the toxic fuels all over their lands
1 Gig for what?
How about fully interactive 3D TV? That should eat bit of bandwith.
Mind you, rolling out FTTH will have to wait for the ISP's to upgrade their pathetic backhaul networks first. Why do you think they shape traffic today?
Aimed at latpots, betnooks, etc
Targeted at laptops and the like, this could be a killer. It will save the OEMS a lot of cash and should be quite power efficent too. I can imagine the GPU core using system memory, but sat next to the CPU there shouldnt be too much latency involved.
This certainly wont make any headway with the enthusiast crowd tho, who love their add-in graphics too much ;)
...no mac zealots have waded in yet.
If Windows 7 is actually 6.1, then lets hope they have refined it and optimised it to death. I can see them doing this specifically to target the new 'netbook' market. Why peddle XP to this crowd when they can peddle W7 for a larger license fee?
I've heard this before...
...from Microsoft desperately trying to remove bloat from windows in time for the release of windows 7.
I can see both firms targeting the new netbook market with these OSs
It may actually be easier to get into China or Russia.
Wonder where my tourist sterling will be spent.
I'm surprised they didnt arrest him right there and then, hold him in detention for 28 days, then deport him for having a foreign sounding name.
An utter gimick
The macbook air is nothing but an utter gimmick - thrown together using the cheapest components, with a shiny case to cater for the 'design concious'... oh please
I cannot ignore the lack of ports, or non-replaceable battery... shameful apple, shameful.
Mines the one with Eee PC 900 written on it.
