Sony NEX-7 24.3Mp APS-C compact system camera

Preacher
Thumb Down

Sony NEVER learn

"the frame rates depend on territory with 60fps in the US", WTF Sony, crippling features depending on where I live. This is a camera Sony, not one of your useless Blu-ray players.

Preacher

One title missing

Ishtar needs to be on EVERY top 10 list of worst films lest we forget just how bad it is, so bad it never even got a DVD release in the US.

Iomega TV with Boxee

Preacher
Thumb Down

Wireless adaptor

"Iomega also throws in a USB adaptor for 802.11n wireless networking", if you're going to include the adaptor why not build wireless into the box in the first place?

Microsoft raises 'state of the art' son of NTFS

Preacher

It's all Greek to me

I vaguely remember reading that internal docs at M$ used Greek letter shorthand for Cairo, thus Cai (chi) became X and ro (rho) became p. No idea if it was true or not, but sounds more plausible than "Windows eXPerience".

TV Guide UK

Preacher
Thumb Down

Sky+ / Tivo

This doesn't appear to have the Sky+ Remote Record or Virgin Tivo function that TVGuide.co.uk app has, poor effort.

Mozilla man blasts Apple and Google for HTML5 abuse

Preacher
Jobs Horns

hook, line, etc

The point you've completely failed to grasp is these demos DON'T showcase what HTML5 can do, they show (for the most part) what CSS3 can do. Apple is blurring the lines by suggesting CSS3 is part of HTML5, it's not.
