700,000 Saudi BlackBerrys go silent noisy

RIM is not so innocent

Why do you think European Union is moving most of its employees to iPhone, and HTC.

As for protecting users Blackberry didn't mind sharing security "features" with China, and few other countries. Also, their so called "security" is nothing more then forcing Blackberry users' to sign "data contract" with mobile providers.

Just go with Mac

Unless you're buying toughbook -so you can view monitor in direct sun beat light. I'd go with Mac, it can dual boot with Windows, or Linux, and it's worth it -- minus the price.

RIM answers Apple iPad with...The BlackPad*

Jesse Dorland
Linux

Upgrade OS, Software, and Hardware

I would also add that typical PC allow you to upgrade parts -- laptop (hard-drive, rams, and in some case even CPU).

Also in PC you can install software from different companies even if original maker didn't approve of that.

However, if iPad was running OSX (the laptop, or desktop base) then it could pass as a PC. However, it's nothing more the big version of it's mobile cousins.

Steve Jobs death-grips iPhone 4 reality

Jesse Dorland
Linux

Arrogant Jerk

Two years ago I made the mistake of buying a brand new laptop without doing a research. This notebook Sony Vaio come with Vista, and within five minutes of the opening the box I install Linux, and dual boot with downgrade XP SP3. At the time Microsoft bribe every notebook maker, and hardware manufacture to make devices solely for Vista. This notebook -- hardware wise okay, but Sony refuse to make most of the driver for xp -- external vga, fn function, and more.

I learned my lesson, never buy a laptop from a store -- buy a business notebook which allows you to downgrade, and matte -- anti glare screen. The key is customization -- yes you pay more, but you get the best deal.

I use my laptop mostly outside -- near windows. So glossy screen is not good for me.

Now what does this have to do with iPhone? Read the reviews from other customers, and do some research before throwing away your hard earned money. In fact save some money, and buy it on cash -- no data contract, or any other for that matter.

I love my iPhone, but that's doesn't mean that I'll swallow anything coming out of Jobs' mouth, or Steve Ballmer for that matter.

AMD sales up – but ink still red

Jesse Dorland
Linux

Be gone AMD

AMD was at its peak in 90s. This 2010, they are garbage now. I don't like intel either, but face why pay for something that's not worth much in near future?

You buy a laptop, and in three years when you see a better notebook, and you wanna sell the old one. No one gonna AMD. It's all about investment.

You'd thing our leaders would learn from history.

Crusaders, and Knight try were killing, raping, and slaughtering people of middle-east "in the name of god", now samething expect calling it "fighting for freedom & democracy".

As for fighting Iran, that would really be amusing, Iranian would be shut off gas pipeline, or destroy Ghwar by bombing it (world's largest oil province), and this would destroy the earth's atmosphere. Not to mention bring peak oil.

Put OSX (Snow Lepard) on it

If big brother Job decided to put osx (the laptop version) on it, I'd buy it. Of course I'ld wait until I the misunderstanding have been cleared out. a la death grip of iPhone.

To each is his own

Don't get me wrong iPad is a beautiful device. However, it's too expensive, and the OS is not based on laptop -- it's based on iPhone/iPod. This mean Mr. Job gets to control what you put in the device.

Also iPad doesn't support Advanced Wireless Services, also known as AWS-1 or UMTS band IV, so you can't use it with any new provider (specially here in North America).

Oh, and let's not forget -- this device is cross between mobile phone & computer, and yet it does have been 100gig of space...

I'll reiterate, Laptop/PC base osx would have been better, more option for what we can install.

You'd think that boy would have learned by now! Recent flame against HTC is nothing more than paying for rivals ads. Perhaps it is this paranoia is driving Apple to sell unlock phones in some countries -- good for most of us.

Apple to sell unlocked iPhone 4

Jesse Dorland
Thumb Up

Give the devil his due

I am Linux user by default, so I am no big fan of Mr. Job$. However, I would answer a question another poster have asked why would you spend your money on a phone like this? The simple you get what you pay for. You get a phone, mp3 player, and organizer, and not to mention email, web browser with wifi, and finally games!

All of these things can be organized with iTune without any major difficulty. Believe me guys I have tried blackberry sync apps, Motorola (a paid app), and few more. Nothing comes close to be as simple as iPhone. Nothing. Yes apple is draconian, Orwellian, and they make Stalin look like a church choir boy. Over all its best of two world.

Finally, as an iPhone user I am very happy to see that apple is shipping unlock phone with quad band. As soon as they start selling unlock phone AWS phone (hopefully with 200 Gig space). I’d buy it in a heart beat.

Apple selling unlock phones means they are taking Google android seriously.

Big Deal

Some of us will be using linux by the that. I am since 2003 -- only use windows xp for office work, or study. As for our family? I bought them a mini mac, and they can surf the internet, and watch movies etc... without having to update this or that. I am not saying that the mac is perfect, but due to its minority status it much safer for less techy users.

It's nice to dream, but in real world this doesn't work that way. I would love to see Linux crushing Microsoft for good. However, this will not happen, simply because at the moment big blue is too powerful to be stopped by ants -- nonetheless, ants normally win at the end because they work together. Microsoft is will control the market -- but not forever.

I gave my ipod touch to a friend -- okay more like sold it to him. Still, it wasn't a big deal for me.

I will, however, admit that if our Mac Lord came up with say 500gig ipod touch -- and it's breakable -- a la jail break, with bluetooth, camera, and fm read, plus recorder I will be the first in line.

NASA orbiter snaps Apollo 12 landing site

Jesse Dorland
Linux

Don't insult conspiracy ppl

How come NASA orbiter didn't take lunokhod picture?

For the uninitiated Lunokhod was the first of two unmanned lunar rovers landed on the Moon by the Soviet Union as part of its Lunokhod. Some of these machines are bigger compare to NASA stuff on "moon".

There’s nothing wrong with doubting in a government. Obama promised the public job security on more than one occasion. However, once he came in power he picked up where Bush left off. How about WMD in Iraq? All things considered, being suspicious of the government is healthy, and it’s well justified. I am quite sure our buddy Orwell would have added some chapters in his marvelous book 1984. Remember, how big brother used Television as a weapon to control the mind of its citizen?

Like it or not nothing short of live landing on moon -- all the way from launch - to landing would shut anyone up. I never cared for Moon landing hoax, but I've more respect for them than those who disses them. After all it takes guts to stand up, and call this national icon "hoax". Specially, anyone who doesn't agree with government is called terrorist sympathizer.

Finally, there are some good reason not to take "NASA" version seriously. The original tapes -- which recorded the landing on the moon, and playing golf and all the that are "missing". According to NASA, they got lost in Australia. These were black and white, but very much like HD quality.

Microsoft pimps bogus Windows 7 'launch parties'

Jesse Dorland
Thumb Up

Let's be fair guys

Microsoft insulted its customer more than once -- and will likely to do it again in near future. Nonetheless, they have every right to "celebrate" the stupidity of their customers. After all before Vista, they had MS Office Ads insulting their users, calling them dinosaurs for sticking with Office 2003, or older. Now, they got away with Vista.

Other side of pound we have our beloved Steve Jobs, we know how friendly Apple PC would be if they own 90% of the world market.

Linux, well let be honest here guys. There are very few user like me who are willing to learn things like -- why my lappy's wifi is not working, or what type of linux friendly notebook is on the market.

Personally, I am looking forward to the day when human being are born like "seedless fruits", and they would need to pass a license to a have one baby.

And for the usual suspect, no baby for you!

South Africa official calls for 'outright ban' on pornography

Good

I could care less of porn ban, but than again I don't trust any government when it comes respecting individual's freedom or right to express. Nontheless, I also believe that every nation has right to ban anything they feel not good for their citizen. Big brother doesn't have the right to police "democracy", and I like the idea of having few anti democratic rouge nation just for fun.

Personally, I'd be quite happy if underwear were banned in North America. Cops (hopefully not the usual suspects) demanding that we take our pants down, and proof we are innocent.

At least Spammers know how to spell a name!

Got to love how spammers are able to spell Somalian name!

U in English normally essential after a q. It was added to the name of Nunavut’s capital, changing it from Iqaluit to Iqualuit, in a press release by Prime Minister’s staff.

As any Canadian would know by now that name of Nunavut’s capital, Iqaluit, means many fish in Inuktitut. However, when that extra u is tacked on after the q, the meaning suddenly changes to “people with unwiped bums,”. Just google "unwiped" in the news section!

I suggest that Canadian politicians hire these spammers, and so they wouldn’t have worry about offending our northern brothers, and with a single stroke they can solve the world leading spam crisis.

Snow Leopard - what doesn't work

Apple needs Hercules for advertisement

Here in Canada I used to work in an awful convenience store, they had a tablet -- PC based. This was used for ordering, checking stocks, and other business related applications. Virtually, all convenience store in Canada and America have similar tablet.

Apple will have hard time popularizing "iTablet".

Here are two simple reasons:

#1 Business community prefers tablets with "changeable battery". Apple hates giving such option to their customers. Steve Jobs would gladly throw his grandmother to the wolves than give loons option of changing gadgets’ batteries.

#2 Business community desire matte screen tablet -- all apple products including iPhone are "glossy". With iPhone it’s hard to see during bright sun light. This is why Blackberry can not be replaced by iPhone. MacBook, iPhone, iPod Touch are so reflective that you can use them as shaving mirror! Until, last years they didn’t believe in “anti-reflective” LCD. Sadly, problem still persists, and Apple in their usual “democratic” way is “reasoning” with unhappy customers.

As you can see, this device is already in use in business community. In today's economy with Apple's pricing is not going to be easy -- save for few Mac worshipers.

Seriously though. No serious Gamers in his right mind would buy a mac. True addicts stick with PC, thanks to our beloved modern pirates, and games consoles. OSX is for Jobs' cult, people who want to show off, or guys like me who buy it for their parents, or sick of virus industry -- aka - anti virus software "maker".

US regulators probe wireless competition

Jesse Dorland
Linux

Don't hold your breath

If FCC was really serving public’s interest. It would argue something like this; land line telephone cost like $15 a month, basic package including unlimited incoming & outgoing calls. Phone companies are able to make profit, even when they have to fix, repair, and replace wires, and pay licensing fees.

How come they charge so much for wireless? Simple answer is greed. Government would go after them and smash them into little bells like AT&T.

It ain’t gonna happen.

How to run Mac OS X on a generic PC

just buy mini mac

I have built hackintosh. It's a waste of time -- of course I did this five years ago, and it's not worth it. I would suggest that you buy used matte screen mac book -- intel base! So this way you can play around with it. Last years when I was making decent amount of money, I bought mini mac, and yes it's worth having one around. My mom uses it for surfing internet, so I don't need to updated anti-virus, and other non-sense. She is happy.

OS X is a "decent" OS, but it doesn't "rock", granted it is better then Windows, but compare to Linux -- nope not even close.

I am in Canada right now, and situation on the south of our border is about the same. This means something like this.

Major ISP provider in Canada are charging us by Megabyte, or Gigabytes. There used to be a options so called "unlimited", but that is gone. To make matter worst internet providers are reducing the speed of certain applications, and at the same time denying internet access to file sharing software -- say torrent, or emule, and even youtube.

Amazingly Rogers even charges "system access fees" this used to be for only "cell phone", but now it's for everything -- Internet, cable, homephone, and of course cell phones..

Long story short, my neighbors will same the same policy implemented in all of their states in the name of "economic recovery".

You can say one thing for sony worshipers, they don't go out much. They'll live in their parents' basement, depend on mommy's like 9 years old girl, and somehow manage to save enough money to buy a overly priced video game. When they go out of the house -- which is like once a year thing, they'll get themselves into jailed for stepping out of the house.

Sadly, mac fan wouldn't even fight a company who sells overly priced broken, and exploding gadgets for $1599.99.

Idiotic

If Iranian wanted to destroy American they don't need ICBM. Ghawar the world largest oil province located in Saudi Arabia is a better target. Ironically, vast majority of people working in ghawar oil field are Shia follower -- the religion of Iran. Also, they could simply disable transportation in Strait of Hormuz.

Yes, American will carpet bomb them, but guess what this would bring the oil production pass its peak "Hubbert Peak of Oil Production". This means there will not be enough energy left to feed 8 billion people, and America would become a 3rd world country with Serbian style racial, religious wars.

Iranian have American by the balls, and American know it.
