It couldn't be that web-based email programs are so good and large amounts of web storage are freely available, so wasting precious resources on an email program is pointless when the browser can do it all then?

I wonder why they would actually waste time killing off a recognised brand name.
I suspect they will re-badge all the kit 'Cisco' and hope to make a small premium on the more 'Professional' brand name as low-end kit.
Time to buy D_link shares!

5. PC Pricing Jul 19, 2007, 20:56 UnderLord
 
Oddly, Nvidia might get less sales if they cut their price too much to compete with ATI/AMD -

I don't know about most of you, but my gaming PC has to perform all my other PC jobs too.
That's why I usually build the best machine I can afford and run it until it is a dog compared to current PCs.
My 5 year old, GeForce3, 512MB, AMD 1600+ is most definitely there now! ;-)
(Still cross compiles my entire current ARM embedded project in 6.7 seconds though, so work wise it's fine)
Cheaper PCs are usually looking sad after 1 to 1 1/2 years.

I wonder if I could be the first to make the comparison...
E3 WAS XP, now it's Vista, made to please businesses not consumers, consequently F****d!

Might as well push the metaphor - EIEIO is Linux, that should worry the MS/ESA mob ;-)

This should be on a history site, not a news site.

Lucky they have only found one so far.
Just in case there are more of them, not to worry... too much!

So on July 2nd, they write an article with a header using the future tense word 'Ending' to tell us that MS said that it 'would sunset on June 30th"?
Maybe they should rename themselves CNET History.com
Pointless dicks!

Actually, it started on Monday, probably Sunday Midnight.
Maybe if the options are 'Freeze' or 'Quit' they'll do the smart thing?

That doesn't sound hopeful to me, unless the Aluminium is only used catalytically.
It takes masses of power just to make Aluminium in the first place, there's a reason it's called "Congealed Electricity".

Errrmm, are you sure we read the same story? Kapalka wasn't complaining at all, he welcomes the genre's extra exposure in fact.
What's more his fears that developers looking for quick income never do manage to turn out the 'big idea' game they planned to, is the exact same fear I have for devlopers of episodic games.
I expect some companies to pull back from that model and go back to 'big games' development, but I also expect there will be others that stick with it for the smaller but steady(ish) income and never develop 'big games' again.

Like epilepsy.
I think it is just a pipedream for developers where they imagine they can trot out a bit more content for money whenever it suits them and they aren't doing a real game.
The results will only ever be a half-hearted aimless tease with no commitment.
I'd rather they dropped this totally crap idea and got used to the idea of actually doing some work for a living.

If we think of HD-DVD and BluRay as Xbox 360 and PS3, then logically, this is the Wii of the HD player world, right?
The big guys are all about DRM disguised as a better end-user experience.
This product is all about affordability for the end user AND the content producer.
The big guys must be shitting themselves!

Maybe they can only block so many things at one time.

Not pandering to the PS3 and Xbox 360 PowerPC chip crowd I hope?
As a former PowerPC developer, it will always mean this to me -
"Enforce In-Order Execution of I/O"
