    Comcast has a 250 gig limit on internet

    Considering that plenty of civilized countries can get high-speed internet almost everywhere (for like $25-$50 a month, too), it's astounding that U.S. ISPs get away with charging $60 for a 10mbit connection and still pretend like we're hurting them by using what we bought.

    News AMD dropping ATI brand name

    AMD still innovates. In fact, they pulled quite a bit ahead of Intel with the Athlon processors. But instead of innovate back, Intel gave massive (and illegal) discounts to Dell and other major manufacturers if they pledged not to use AMD. Intel burned their own money to starve out their...

    "kick ass" the movie

    I enjoyed it a lot. I watched it back when it was in the theaters and forgot about the Blu Ray release. I think I'll watch it again.

    NVIDIA GTX 465 detailed ahead of June 1 launch, GTX 460 also rumored

    Looks like they have realized that ATI signaled the end of $500 single GPUs when they released the Radeon 5870 at $380. Very few people cared to buy the 480 and the 470. They finally have one card out that is worth buying (460 and soon 465), but it comes at a heavy cost. They've been...

    Anyone Heard of ECS Brand

    I was going to come in and say that I had a decent experience with them several years ago, but apparently I already have :laugh:

    2TB Drive For Birthday

    This is kinda how my computer is set up. I love my 5400 RPM drives, and slower moving parts = last longer if my knowledge of mechanics is correct.

    Are 2TB drives safe now?

    I have three Fantom drives, although none are the 2TB ones. They all had Western Digital drives inside, so you can trust them as much as you can trust WD. The enclosures have all worked fine too. I see a few non-positive reviews for the drive you linked, so I guess it's something to think about...

    ** iPhone 4 mini-review

    Navigon does store everything on the HDD. By trimming out states that I don't go to (it had everything in the USA and Canada, plus businesses complete with addresses and phone numbers), I was able to trim it to about 364MB. It's 1.5GB before trimming. I keep two IPAs on computer now--an...

    ** iPhone 4 mini-review

    Thanks for the info! It's nice to have a review from a power user like yourself, especially one whose opinion isn't clouded by fanboyism or corporate interest. I'm still in the "will I, won't I" phase. If I could get it without a data plan, I'd be on it without hesitation. The part I am most...

    News iPhone 4, Pre-Order Yours Today ... But Only In Black??

    I have an eleven minute commute to work. At work, I work. When I'm at home, I have my computers and wifi. On the rare occasion that I'm traveling and for some reason I MUST have the internet (so far has been never thanks to Goog411 and/or Navigon MobileNavigator), I'll pull into the parking lot...

    News iPhone 4, Pre-Order Yours Today ... But Only In Black??

    I have an iPhone 3G (bought from another person so I'm not roped into the data plan HA!). I'm within my upgrade period, but I'm still on the fence. I wish both of these companies would quit engaging in what is paramount to price fixing...you can't escape both companies (Verizon and AT&T)...

    You can download the latest physx drivers and install them even if you have an ATI card. I don't know how it could help to install them, but here's the link.

    MOH: Allied Assault

    Hell yeah! And what's great is that ANY key can work on any server. Everyone can even have the same key. I actually owned a legit copy, but my wife and I shared it. We had so much fun until we finally converted to TF2.
