Intel, AMD in HP notebook smackdown

screen quality

As you haven't mentioned it, are we to assume that the screens are the usual pointless 1366x768 crap? Or do they actually supply screens that are useful for people that actually use their computers to do stuff (as opposed to watching video or playing games which is the only use for the usual low-res screens):?

UK.gov denies innocent will be hit by filesharing regime

@mmiied

And how will they know if I'm uploading any data? Being connected to the swarm doesn't prove it, so they would actually have to receive data from me and confirm it forms part of the file. How much data do they have to receive from me to accuse me of file sharing. Clearly 1 byte isn't enough, but how much is? 10 bytes? 10KB? 10MB? 1GB?

Bet they don't check and wrongly assume everyone is uploading ...

Nokia's £500 netbook: What were they thinking?

ubuntu?

Are they doing an Ubuntu version?

Does it work with Ubuntu if you put it on yourself?

no HDMI? are you sure?

Nokia claim it does have HDMI. So does it or not?

Give it a high resolution screen, 4GB RAM and a decent SSD instead of its old-skool HDD and it'll run a lot better and might be worth the price. But not otherwise...

Metallica sticksman gloats over Napster downfall

so why hasn't he been sued yet?

Since he's admitted the download, why haven't the RIAA taken him to court and fined him $1000000 per track? They'd do it to anyone else who was stupid enough to publicly admit downloading.

Doesn't he realise he was distributing copyrighted material whilst he was downloading it .
