The conclusio of the story is wrong...

For supporters of government databases this is a perfect example to claim, that with biometric authentification this would have never happened...

And I'm just realistic...

@Kanhef 30 words?

Not everything can be explained in 30 words. So everything, not explainable in 30 words is bad? I don't think so...

Google demanding Intel's hottest chips?

@Anton Ivanov

That's not right. Thermal throttling is activated at much higher temperatures than the "normal" working-temperature.

Custom-car creator preps electric Porsche

@Matthew Barker

If you mean the Tesla it is a very good car, and it is even sporty.

And the "normal" CTR3 costs around 452.200 Euro so I don't think the electric version would be cheaper than 100k...

The Google-isation of all the net's access points

Tried it...

I am writing this from Chrome now... It is very fast (in comparison to FF3), it is very nice to use and it is neat. I like it... But as others noted: The dealbreaker is the missing AdBlocker ;-)

Nokia E71 smartphone

E71 vs. iPhone

I currently own a E61... And I really think, I will switch to this one in a moment...

Some friends of mine asked me if I would buy their iPhone 0.1 because they want to buy themselves iPhone 0.2. I like Safari on the iPhone much better than any other browser available on the E61, but I wan't pay EUR 300 for an old used phone when I can get the E71 for about EUR 370 new and unlocked.

So it's just this: I can't buy an unlocked iPhone. The iPhone ist too expensive. The iPhone doesn't have a decent bluetooth implementation. I can't send mms. I can't use videophone. I can't use it for connecting my laptop.... (And in the old version, it doesn't have GPS)

So... nope... No sold iphone to this customer...

Dell offers 'Windows Vista Bonus' to frightened customers

The most important thing is...

...that Dell provides full Drivers for XP for their products....

I ordered a new Latitude Notebook a few weeks ago, it shipped with Vista Business. After some frustrating hours I decided to switch back to XP and found all drivers on Dells website and the switch was no pain at all (and it does what it's supposed to do: wotk...)
