You may want to check the date that it's supposed to be released before getting your panties too much in a bind.

Just switched over from a 9600GT to an HD 5770 today. Haven't had a chance to see what it can do yet, but feeling pretty good about making the switch.

I would like to say I'm excited about SXSW this year but since I work two blocks from the Austin Convention Center (in the Frost Bank Tower, I'm staring down at it right now) and the fact the downtown is crawling with people who don't know how to cross the street, it makes for a tough time getting around.

Thanks for the info. I've switched from nVidia to ATI to nVidia to ATI back to nVidia so there's no allegiance. I'm looking at spending between $150-$200 so I'll keep my eye out for an ATI card.

So has history shown that when they launch their latest and greatest that prices for the rest of their cards go down? I'm looking at upgrading and may be interested in waiting a bit if the prices drop significantly.

24% here also. Being able to stream on my PS3 is great, though the selection is hit or miss. Will watch on my computer on occasion while I work, but I generally work best in silence. They really need to up the children video selection for my kid though. Add some newer shows and I'd have no complaints.

Whew...! I thought that was saying Nicholas Cage was done doing thrillers.

That was the first thing that came to my mind too.

The 9/11 one was in bad taste, my opinion. Most things you can mess with, the twin towers (though that was a forged image they were parodying) isn't one of them.

Halle-freakin'-lujah! It's about time!

IE6 has been a royal pain in every web designer's tailpipe as it doesn't support many of today's standards (png support, terrible CSS implementation, the list goes on and on...). And since XP was shipped with this sorry excuse for a browser and since there's a group of people out there who either aren't upgrading from XP or not upgrading at least to IE7, it adds a lot of headache for us designers.

When Google ends support then hopefully people will finally get a clue and upgrade. It ain't hard! Welcome to the new millennium.

Throwing in my two cents:

I think the size of it is the glaring problem for me. (that and the name: my wife thinks it should have been release by Kotex). I can see something that large dropped on the floor, spilled on, squished between two books in a backpack or laptop bag. I can stick my iPhone in my pocket, I can hold it securely in one hand, I bought a relatively unobtrusive case for it. The iPad looks monstrous and looks so fragile I'd be afraid to take it anywhere without the risk of damage.

I watched the video on Apple's site and all of the things they were enthusiastically excited about, I couldn't see spending $400+ dollars for.

Yes, it's only my opinion. I'm usually pretty indifferent between Mac and PC since I don't play as many games as I once did. But this one doesn't seem like a really "winner" to me.

Also, I may be wrong but I think the AppleTV was a bit of a fail for Apple. That one got quietly swept out of the limelight. Can see the same for the iPad.

Meh.
That comment needed editing? Seriously?

I like the cinematic. Cullen's voice is legendary. Hoping gameplay will be good with all the action on Cybertron and not having to deal with hurting the puny humans on Earth.

The last analyst contradicts all the rest of the analyst. Either he's more "in the know" or he's completely clueless. Based on his comments, I'm going for the latter.

If I never hear about this game ever again I'll be happy.

Yeah, right. Every time there's a story on Blue's about DNF, there is never less than 20+ comments. Everyone loves talking about DNF. It's the ultimate punching bag for the cynical gamer.

I read the article and, yes, the title is misleading. The author seems to be harping on the primitive special effects back when television was still in it's early age and without CGI. blah, blah, blah

Now, I do agree with the actual title of the article in that I believe we're becoming much better critics when it comes to show quality. I watched all the cartoons and tv shows: A-Team, Transformers, Thundercats, He-man, Smurfs, The Fall Guy, GI Joe, etc, etc, etc. and I thought they were the coolest things I have ever seen. I had the toys, the backpack, the lunchbox (with thermos) and all of the school supplies that my parents would get me. But I've gone back and watched a couple of episodes on YouTube and they definitely aren't up to the quality that are by today's standards and what I remember them to be.

Watch an episode of Spongebob Squarepants and then go try to sit through one episode of Voltron. The technology hasn't changed much in that they're both hand-drawn animations, but the storyline, scene direction and smoothness of the animation is far better. Case in point, when my younger brother was in elementary school, I showed him an old episode of He-man and he thought it was the dumbest thing he ever saw. And this was less than 10 years ago. At his age, I would see an episode and afterward I'd run outside to go play He-man with my buddies.

I've seen the sweet lion box-sets of Voltron at Best Buy and have thought about buying one, but then I remember that my memories are probably far better than the actual show so I put it back knowing that if I watch it, it would completely ruin it for me. That and I save money too!

Isn't part of "home field advantage" the crowd noise? So what does Jerry Jones do? He gives everyone 3D glasses so they can stare at the screen instead of actually paying attention to the game. At one point I could actually hear Philip Rivers' snap count. Seriously? I've been a Cowboy fan my whole life but it's getting harder and harder to remain one thanks to Jerry Jones. I'll return to my die-hard fan ways when they care about playing football again.

I've fired a client for getting too involved in the process too. I have one right now who knows Photoshop and Dreamweaver enough to be annoying, knows nothing of web and graphic design and yet wants to tell me what a good website looks like.

Little did I know purchasing some design software magically makes you a designer. Why did I waste those years in college getting my design degree?

Won't step into GameStop. There's a Game Crazy down the street and I've gotten to know the guys really well up there. My used game money goes there.
