No more free Windows... and now it’s all about the services

Tomislav

So Windows becomes DLC based? You buy a barebones version and then just buy modules you need? Start Menu? Sure, $5. Control Panel? You do not really need it, but we will sell it to you for just $3.

Review: Corsair Voyager Air 1TB wireless hard drive

Tomislav

Can the firmware be updated? Sounds like a solid platform for DD-WRT...

Re: "Wouldn't that depend on whether one is looking at the light side or the dark side?"

Sending e-mails?

"Perhaps one day we’ll all be thinking emails directly to one another - hopefully with hilarious results."

Lets just hope the autocorrect technology keeps up with this one. :D

FCC: Kids, here's 100MHz of radio spectrum - but you have to share

Tomislav

Re: Good article, but not entirely accurate

Why don't you create fake traffic on emergency channels with the sole purpose of tracking him when he starts with interference?

Battle of the Clouds: Azure goes lower

Tomislav

No, prices are "per GB per month", so 1TB would be $95 per month.

EU runs to WTO again over China's mineral hoarding

Tomislav

It is all our own fault.

It seems like we are perfectly happy with Chinese people dieing in the mines instead of us, but when these same people decide to take advantage of having all the mines suddenly we complain.

I believe it is not a problem of us not having these rare earths or the capability to mine them, the problem is that it is much cheaper to buy them from China compared to paying for geographical surveys, digging, paying workers, insuring them against disasters etc.

It is a neverending circle that the greedy companies have drawn themselves into.

iPad 3 'first tablet' with Bluetooth 4.0

Tomislav

Re:

How often do I send files over bluetooth? I have never used bluetooth for anything else. I have done it at least once every 3 months for the past 4+ years, sometimes a lot more often. It is great when you have to send a photo or a video to an older handset that does not have net access.

Microsoft bans all plugins from touchable IE10

Tomislav
FAIL

Why is everyone so concerned about Silverlight? What about WebM? Will this mean that IE10 will only support H.264 encoded video even though they announced that WebM support will be available via 3rd party plugins?

Windows Phone 7 gets 'goodie' update

Tomislav

An update to enable future updates?

Why doesn't this surprise me? How many Windows updates had that line in the description?

Simply shows how unfinished the product really is. I will not be buying one for myself, at least not before SP2 comes out :).

Microsoft's IE9 'nearly finished'

Tomislav

Nearly finished?

Aren't all their products "nearly finished", regardless of their name or release status?

Swedes serve up flicks with KVM

Tomislav

Nope

I was under the same impression. Even had a visual impression of an ancient KVM switch I used in the old days when mice used to be connected to serial ports :)

2060: Humvee-sized, bulletproof meat-eating spiders attack

Tomislav

Humwee sized? How about foot sized killer spiders?

Why is everyone afraid of humwee sized spiders? Those I can see and fight against (or run underground). I am more afraid of an army of one foot long spiders crawling from under every rock. They will reach that size much sooner too...

'Big Brother' - the price of self-driving cars

Tomislav

Hitchhike?

If all cars are driven by computers, how do you hitchhike? Will a computer stop?
