WTF?

Re: I won't buy

That's funny because I would NEVER but laptop with ATI or nVidia for use with Linux.

AMD speed-bumps, unlocks chips for desktop, notebook

Unhappy

I would even buy one of these, but AMD drivers (and support) for Linux are so lame that I will never buy AMD GPU.

Ice Cream Sandwich

WTF?

Really?

Looks like Apple invented even an apple itself ;-)

But seriously I have checked only the first item from your list and it turns out that there was a demo of pinch to zoom on TED in 2006 BEFORE Apple released iPhone. So your point is rather missed.

Of course you forgot to mention that Apple ripped off Android notification system, as I understand this is fine because it was actually Apple that invented it, right? ;)

Funny

It is funny that so many people say that Android is copying and they can't give at least 3 examples of what Android has copied from other mobile systems. It should be easy, right?

Yamaha RX-V471 5.1 AV receiver

karolbe
Happy

I have better model - RX-V667...

...and a few days ago I bough a stereo amplifier based on Tripath 2020 chip for 50 euros. And all I can say that I will no longer be able to listen to music on that Yamaha. Tripath amp simply rocks, I couldn't believe that such difference is even possible between those amplifiers. The difference is HUGE, it is even more huge when you take into account that Yamaha is connected to much better speakers (Monitor Audio BX5) and Tripath is connected to cheap Eltax Universe (also floor speakers).

Archos 101 8GB Android tablet

karolbe
FAIL

why?

Why it is crappy? here are some arguments:

* it does not support Linux

* it forces you to use some closed protocol for syncing the device, therefore all other apps are hacks or are using iTunes internally (with just different GUI).

* you can't sync a device with more than one PC

* it crashes more than an USB Storage disk

PDF reader.

I have an iPad now which basically is used only for browsing web and reading technical PDF books. Does anyone know how Archos 101 will fit as a PDF ebook reader with it's 16:9 screen? I would like to sell iPad (can't stand that crappy iTunes software!) but I am afraid that iPad's screen (4:3) is better for ebook reader.

iOS 4.2: An 'ace' for iPad, a 'meh' for iPhone

FAIL

This will not help iPad ad iPhone.

Do you know why? Because you have to use the most shitty application to manage it: iTunes.

Ubuntu's Lucid Lynx: A (free) Mactastic experience

karolbe
Thumb Up

the same here

My parents have been using Ubuntu since almost a year. They LOVE it, they have rather slow PC which was slowed down even more by anti virus software etc. Now they can browse the web, view pictures from camera, print, play games and more for free.

They have never asked for help with Ubuntu which is also a sign that Linux IS ready for desktop.

Googlephone sales top, um, 135,000

karolbe
Unhappy

I want 3!

135k is not much but I would buy 3 Nexus One phones straight away if I could (one for me, one for wife and one for my brother), I know that some of my colleagues would like to buy one or two as well.

Too bad that I can't buy them here (Poland), unless I am OK to buy an imported one for $200 more. And I am not OK for this..
