Neither a or b since I've never been able to successfully load up Creative's drivers and have had to use third party drivers. Since I have the Audigy 2 platinum and use the LiveDrive daily I have no interest in buying another $100+ sound card for zero performance increase. It's just annoying to have to jump through all the hoops just to get it running.

And I love how Creative stepped up to the plate to give Audigy 2 cards full Vista support by updating all their drivers. Oh, wait...

“Can anyone explain to me how having one console would be bad for gamers? Or game developers for that matter?,”

I think the hidden meaning is that last sentence. Gamers want competition, it's what keeps things interesting. Developers just want to get lazy. Sure we can just call it the P-Wii 360, that sounds catchy. The next thing they'll want is a standardized spoken language so they don't have to make multi-language support. . .

I remember when I saw "Demolition Man" and the winner of the restaurant wars was Taco Bell. My first thought was "oh, I hope not!"

I was torn on who I wanted to win/lose between the Giants and Eagles last night. Either way, I'm just happy that my Cowboys are sitting undefeated. . .

You need to take a look at the target market before you start talking for other people. For some reason gamers think that when a console is made it's made only for you and could not possible be for a target market that is not you. They're coming out with the Wii Fit soon, do you honestly think that a bunch of gamers are going to rush out and buy it? My wife will, think about that. My grandfather loves playing Wii bowling, my wife likes playing Big Brain Academy with me. . . will you guys stop thinking that you are the center of the gaming world and that all consoles revolve around you?

"Wiifans" are sure buying a heck of a lot of those things and are happy with it, as opposed to the whiney gaming community who complain non-stop and are never satisfied; especially when their graphically-advanced PS3 and 360 are getting their butts handed to them in sales.

Raving Rabbids for the Wii is fun because of the motion detection. But on the PC? A bunch of button-mashing doesn't sound like much fun to me.

It's funny how you bring up the dangers of cell phones while driving. They are in the process of trying to make it illegal to text message while driving in response to those five girls dying in that car crash a few weeks ago.

The cell phone analogy isn't a good one in that the cell phone is a necessity in this day and age, in response to the faster lives we live across a much broader audience. I would like to know what makes MySpace such a necessity that any interruption in service would cause such a stir as when your cell service goes out.

I'm sure there are those that use it for innocent reasons such as organizations or celebrities marketing themselves, aka free advertising, to the younger generation which is MySpace's target market. But I still don't see why MySpace is so important that it can simply ignore the consequences that are brought about; it is being used in a trial court in the rape of two girls! Maybe you can explain it to me since you're determined that MySpace is completely innocent in these situations and that it is solely the responsibility of the person.

And I haven't even started on how perverted adults are abusing the forum to target these pre-teen and teens to feed their own sickness. It's the equivalent to taking an alcoholic to a bar and expecting them to think rationally. . .

I can hardly agree with you that taking MySpace away would be considered a "punishment". It seems to me you're looking at the freedom of the individual, I'm focusing on the well-being of the general public. To each his own. . .

So the problem is the site, not the people?

This article shows what has been shown time and time again, that young people (who I previously called "irresponsible children") are not old enough to understand the dangers of posting personal information and meeting people without thinking it through rationally. This type of behavior is characteristic of "the teenage years". Driven highly by emotion, teenagers and the "tweens" make very rash decisions, usually, without the consent of their parents, sometimes outright rebellious of their parents. There is a reason that you are not considered an adult until your 18, and by what I saw at college, being called an adult at that age is pushing it.

MySpace is an open forum that allows anyone, ANYONE, to create an account and put as much information as they choose. I would normally say that it's the parent's responsibility, but that can't be said since many parents don't care what they're kids are doing. So. . . do we just say "oh, well, they should know better"? Of course not, how would they know better? That's what parenting is for, whether their kids like it or not.

I don't see much good come from MySpace. College kids, "the future of America" are wasting more time spelling poorly on people's pages than actually learning. I blame the kids if not more, however, they still are teenagers that generally fail to look at the big picture.

I've been out of my teenage years over ten years now, I had three younger brothers and sisters go through the teenage years, one's still in them. I've had my share of teenage experiences and decisions. Fifteen years ago, I probably would have been on MySpace and now at age 31, I'd be rolling my eyes thinking how stupid I was wasting time on a meaningless site.

What the hell is wrong with you?

There's nothing wrong with me, although after reading what can happen to two young, naive and irresponsible girls with the help of MySpace, I'd ask the same question to you. . .

Is it me or does it seem that MySpace is doing more harm than good?

While I was in college and a full decade older than most of my classmates, the teacher would be up in the front of the class teaching and most of the students are posting on MySpace during class, completely ignoring the teacher. And then they whined and complained when they did poorly on a test.

Not that I'm sticking up for a guy dumb enough to believe a MySpace page as truth and putting himself in that situation, but giving irresponsible children the means of posting personal information, truth or fiction, for the world to see is just as dumb. MySpace should be shut down.

Never had a MySpace or Facebook page, never will.

It seems to me, and I may very well be wrong, that the Wii was not intended to market towards the hard-core gamers.
I'm planning on buying a Wii because it's completely different and a heck of a lot cheaper than the Xbox 360 or PS3. Plus it's something my wife and I can do together.(she absolutely has no interest in learning how to use the 38 buttons on an x-box controller)
Sure there aren't as many games as the PS2/3, but ask a casual gamer how much time (or money) they spend playing. They have select few titles they play all the time and they're happy with it. Heck my wife still loves playing Ms.Pacman on our old Atari 2600!

Any individual or group who writes a manifesto doesn't deserve any kind of respect or coverage.

Sorry, and I'm sure I'll be getting in trouble for saying this, but I completely agree with his dislike for Comic Sans. My own personal peeve is "Papyrus" because everyone uses it, most times inappropriately, which is the case for most fonts. Look in any magazine or respectable publications and you would never see comic sans used except in parody.

I've been noticing my iBook G4 (14" 1.33GHz late 2004 model) running seemingly a bit hot to the touch today. On top it's toasty. On the bottom (underside) seems almost hot enough to burn.

At my old job I had a PowerBook G4 12" and it ran really hot. I would have it sitting on my lap and after about 30 minutes my legs would start cooking. The system never slowed down though. A friend who works on the IBM chips here in Austin said that was a big problem and was part of the reason Apple went with Intel because IBM couldn't get their chips cooled down enough. I never heard the fan run on the Powerbook and the vents are in the back, not on the bottom where my lap could be blocking it. I quit there so I never really looked into it. . .

Just bought a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4427 three weeks ago at OfficeMax for $699 (OfficeMax gives instant savings so you don't have to mess with mail-in rebates) and we're really happy with it. It has Vista Home Premium and runs well on our home network with the other computers on XP. It's fairly solid meaning I don't feel like it's going to shatter if it gets a little man-handled. (or child-handled) With a 3-year extended warranty it still came sub-$1000.

btw- I read on an article here a few days back that said that extended warranties were a cash-cow. Depending on your product, I would have to disagree. I bought a four-year warranty from Best Buy for my Sony MiniDV camera three years and 8 months ago. The firewire port got fried and they immediately junked it out. I got back the full amount of $899 in credit towards a new HD camera, no questions asked. My wife and I are now Best Buy fans again, their customer service far exceeds any of the other big electronic stores I've been to.
