Interesting follow ups: better hardware than an iPod: http://www.cultofmac.com/zune-hd-teardown-reveals-better-hardware-than-ipod/16450

.. and here is an interesting take on how Apple is shifting from hardware to software and M$ is shifting from software to hardware, and the implications:

Damn Zune's got as many wrappers around layers around sham beginnings as Windows Millennium Edition.  But nobody's better than Microsoft at that game.

I can't speak to that since I don't own one and only know what I've read about it.  But when I first learned that NVIDIA "built it" I was totally excited to see the final product.  Big letdown to see this since I absolutely love their graphics cards.  My PCs have at least 512s and produce the most amazing gaming experience. 

All this aside, how in the hell can you read that stuff perk?  It's like the Star magazine of IT.  Can't stomach Micronazi rags either.

But wow:
"If PortalPlayer sounds familiar, it's because Apple formerly used its system-on-a-chip parts to build MP3 players up through the 5G iPod and the original iPod nano. Apple accounted for 90% of PortalPlayer's business when it dumped the company in 2006, reportedly because the company was arrogantly jerking Apple around.   ROFLMAO  PortalPlayer was devastated and never recovered."
 ROFLMAO 

Apple got "jerked around" by something it owned 90% of yet AT&T gets a reach-around? Sarcasm  "Reportedly because," "people are saying," "experts conclude"  Jackoff

"Tegra is also being hyped as providing "8 processing cores," but this is nonsense as it simply counts logical blocks common to all embedded SoC parts as "cores." The CPU in the Tegra is a single ARM11 core. Even if the Tegra did supply multiple CPU cores, the Windows CE kernel used by the Zune HD doesn't support multi-core SMP so it couldn't make any use of them."

HyperThread marketing speak.  When "Pentium HT/-D" became truly dual core Intel raved about it.  I thought it created distrust about their chips in general since Pentium-D became more obviously misleading 

Anyone with success in the gaming market seems to ruffle the Apple feathers pretty hard.  PC games - Apple's unsung nemesis

"read" would be extravagantly generous... I get lots of feeds and skim over all of them, including things like American Thinker and Microsoft Subnets, even though these last two particularly bring about a need for some Pepto. When I find something of interested I do take it in though.

As you may remember, it is part of my perceived job that I am up on anything/everything that my clients might want to ask about. It is a daily ritual.

The toughest one to follow, of course, is the sublimedirectory.  Devilish

I thought they became too trashy but apparently they have new management:  "10 pictures of hot milfs muff diving on each others wet vag holes." ROFLMAO 

"Up" on the sublimedirectory (did you say something Freud?)  If half of The Big List links in someone's browser are previously viewed it's time for an intervention  Need Help  After 40% I called 911 Wink

Just received an FSF email and had a thought.  Are you a proponent of free porn but not free software?  Grin

I am not anti-free software... I'm anti ALL software must be free (as in speech).

Note that there's nothing free about that pr0n either... happy endings will cost you.
It's all teaser stuff, like an app that lets your run but not save your work.

I actually have quite an opinion related to the pr0n industry and some work within it... but that would be better discussed over lagers in November Wink

Sounds like a plan.  And sorry for the bad spider food I always forget about perk!  I have to remember this when answering my naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammbla fan mail.

BTW - tube8 is free to the finish IMO  Smiley
