Lighty and flighty: Six sizzling portable projectors

MastaBlasta

No progress in then

I've had my LG PB60G for over 2 years now (paid about €400 new), and I was expecting the devices reviewed here to at least have 1080p resolution. However the specs barely improved at all.

Alternatively the prices should have dropped by now. What the hell have the manufacturers been doing over this time?

Apple LIGHTSABERS to feature in The Force Awakens

Re: Retrogression of the "Force".

A popular hypothesis is that the guy in the cloak with the fuzzy lightsaber is someone who has been in stasis/asleep/whatever for a very long time.

In that case is lightsaber would be an early example, perhaps built thousands of years before the era of the original movies.

He's certainly stumbling around like someone who just got out of bed...

Thumb Down

Desktop space! >:-/

Another sodding 720p screen. Can anyone recommend a decent 1080p ultrabook (or AMD equivalent)? There don't seem to be many :(

Chinese e-cars to turn London cabs green

WTF?

Re: Where will the power come from?

You're missing the massive benefit of improved air quality for people living and working in the city. As someone that falls into both categories, and cycles through London, I wish all vehicles were electric so my lungs could get a rest. This move alone isn't going to do much, but the more electric vehicles the better.

I predict the exact opposite. Let's hope we're both wrong and it's all good. OPTIMISM

Apple iPhone 5 review

MastaBlasta
FAIL

"Apple’s ease of use, highly populated App Store and irresistibly sleek hardware design"

So Android is too complicated for you, but not my 60 year old mum? The design is great if you love bezel. Given the resources that Apple have available, they could easily invest 10x more in R&D than they do and actually produce something spectacular. However, why should they bother hitting their profit margins when they have a fanboi army ready to convince themselves that Apple hasn't fallen behind?

Re: ESP?

It's called a spec sheet. Let me explain the concept: You can use these to compare devices before making a purchase based on features. If you looked at one, you'd see that there are good reasons why those mean mean people say bad naughty things about the holy iPhone. This of course requires you to be open to considering other devices, and not just what Apple feeds you.

Windows 8: Never mind Office, it's for GAMING

WTF?

Kinect?

If they're really serious, then why are PC gamers still having to wait for proper Kinect games?
