i don't like amazon's attitude with the kindle. the DRM is so deep, and ended up with problems like:
http://www.geardiary.com/2009/06/19/kindles-drm-rears-its-ugly-head-and-it-is-ugly/
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/18/technology/companies/18amazon.html

what's the point of such control, when the kindle books are pirated & converted everyday on warez sites? it's only hurting people who spend money to rent these books, not the ones who get the whole thing for free.

yeah, leaving the UGO ads was good, any low bandwidth replacement would do.

BTW: anyone know of any instrumental music, free or otherwise, that's like the one running the flood fill game?

13. ‘Lottery winner’ causes riot at Oct 15, 2009, 16:57 rocketpcguy
 
"She was telling people she won $1.5 million," Deakins said. "But it ends up she didn't win anything. She had no money to pay for anything." ... That's when angry customers, realizing they weren't getting free coats, began throwing merchandise on the floor and grabbing clothes without paying for them, Nace said.

"Everybody was like, 'I still want my free stuff,' and that started the riot," he said. "It looks like (Hurricane) Katrina went ‘Lottery winner’ causes riot at coat store.through the store."

i'm lost for words. how selfish and stupid can people be?

1. Android to overtake iPhone in 2012 Oct 10, 2009, 03:21 rocketpcguy
 
does anyone here have the Android? Or the palm pre? How is it?

from the videos, Android looks very slow (esp. the web browser, it's like 1 fps when zoom-out+panning), and the interface is not very slick. the palm pre looks amazing and fast though (except for the initial app launch).

I think the bold text on the reviews/sales looks bad and makes the site less nicer to visit; you should start a poll to see the majority view (maybe with polldaddy.com?)
