DreamWorks CEO: Movie downloaders should pay by screen size

Josh Cain

And you wonder why they posted a loss...

With bonehead ideas like these, not to mention the previously mentioned crap remakes, it's no shocker that their industry is drying up.

Why not...

Just take Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy and BAM, excellent bit of sequels prepackaged and ready to go.

t-mobile iPhone?

Could be a test handset for the rumored T-mobile iPhone release. Stands to reason as they use different frequencies than AT&T for their 3G coverage in the US.

vs. the Acer easystore h340...whats the point?

Like the Drobo...this seems excessively overpriced compared to the Acer easystore h340 WHS, or the HP equivalent, the Acer at least of which comes with 1TB of storage out of the box, plus 2GB of DDR2 for significantly less.

Toshiba hints at sooner-rather-than-later fuel-cell debut

What does the FAA think of fuel cells

To point out he benifits of a fuel cell to retroneo who wrote 'I don't get it at all' a fuel cell has the potential for being recharged in a manner of seconds, as you replace the material that it derives it power from (like recharging a butane lighter from a pressurized can, or refuelling your car...), as opposed to plugging in and having to wait for your battery to recharge.

Being someone who travels on a weekly basis, and seeing the minor nightmare that is airport security, I wonder what category a refill cartridge for a fuel cell would fall under? Would they be sold in airport shops or banned altogether?

Obviously someone with a fuel cell powered cell or laptop would be screwed by the TSA and their appearance of security if a fuel cell refill cartridge contained more than the 3 fluid ounces of liquid. Even more so if the refill cartridges housed a highly combustable material.

Master chief suit...

That was one of a limited production run made by a company called Nightmare Armor Studios for the release of Halo3. It was features on the cover of a few gaming magazines prior to the release.

Here's a link to see some of their stuff:

Over all incredibly impressive work.

Nokia N95 update speeds apps with virtual memory

Josh Cain

US release?

Looking at the firmware version on my n95, I'm wondering when this new release will end up hitting the US handsets for updating.

Nokia unleashes N82 smartphone multimedia computer

Josh Cain

bummer

It's interesting to see what others are saying about their N95's, as I've apparently had a string of good luck with my handset. No lock ups, no memory issues, slider is built solidly and gives no issues with creaking open or closed.

Now, having had an N73 as my previous handset, I can say my only complaint with the N95 thus far is the battery life, but I have yet to actually kill the battery in a day full of heavy usage (read: watching full length movies, listening to music, reading ebooks, and talking 2+hours on the phone over the span of a day). This is also with bluetooth on, and wifi usage (but not continual scanning).

Other than the small complaint of the battery, I've been continuously impressed with improved performance as far as speed of apps loading and pure functionality of the handset itself.

Granted, the first thing I did once I got the handset was plug it in and upgrade the firmware.

Xbox 360 Elite arrives in US - or does it?

Josh Cain

Elite 8.99 upgrade

There's another way to get an 'elite' 360. $6 can of black matte Krylon spraypaint, and $2.99 roll of masking tape.

Last time I checked it was only available for in store pickup, but every Walmart in the country should have ample stock to supply the sudden onrush.
