All I can think of is how fast will it encode my blu-rays to H264 .mp4's

Air Video 2.4.6

Airplay is wonderful

Just played around with this again, and my new AppleTV last night. Using the Airplay feature means I can send from mac to iPhone/iPad and then to TV via AppleTV. No cables to plug in and I can have the full remote next to me. This means I don't require another computer in the bedroom as a media client.

The issue with using a NAS to stream direct to iPhone is that most of them don't really have the grunt for transcoding. As it happens, I convert all my dvd / vids to H264 .m4v files that get stored on my NAS. Some sort of Airvideo server without transcoding. for Synology NAS' would be great

Can I probably be not the first to say....iPod Touch (3rd Generation) ?.....

Son of Transputer powers new Amiga box

Love it

Awsome! Long time since I've seen the Amiga's history acknowledged.

I spent many years clinging to the Amiga and it's attempts to be 're-born'. I still have quite a few original machines - despite the excellent multitasking and top quality software, it's SWOS that I love most about the Amiga

Jobs Halo

Good at his job?

I hope the dude is bloody good at his job.......

Whatever happened to the email app?

Do most people really use webmail as their main 'client' ? Nobody I know does.

As above, I use Thunderbird on Mac and Windows to connect to my googlemail IMAP+Calender.

Vulcan kept airborne by £400k refuel

Waddington 2010

Anyone know if the Vulcan might be at Waddington this year? First time i've been to an airshow in a long long time.

One of my favourite memories was as a kid at Finningley Air Show in Doncaster - the Vulcan doing a full power climb and every car alarm going off.

(I also miss the lightning - would love to see one of those flying again too)

Sun squeals over 'UK's first iPhone baby'

Jobs Halo

the iphone DOES help you out.

The iPhone is so much more powerful than that. Mine is always in my pocket and I was worried about the effect of all that wi-fi, signal etc on my little wrigglers.

Safe to say, the iPhone actually makes 'em more potent and we were a little surprised to find out we were gonna be parents after only 2 attempts. I'm sure if I'd upgraded to a 3GS this would have happened first time.

Anyway, the boy is 13 days old now.......although he does have a look of Lord Jobs about him.

Toshiba reveals Cell TV specs

I need more power.....

Do we need an additional generator to power the thing - like with the PS3? (okay, the slim reduces your power costs to just a small country's GDP)

Although the specs sound nice. Will it have Tetris/Pong to play?

Is it possible to expand the RAID, when bigger capacity disks become available?

iPhone 3G S in the UK: what you need to know

O2 are crazy....and gonna lose a lot of customers

I don't see why people are upset about not getting a free/cheap upgrade from the 3G. You signed a contract and got the 3G subsidised.

But the tethering tarrifs, no unlimited txt bundles, rapidly going downhill CS, no improvement in tarrif contents and worst of all - all this is exclusive to the iPhone. Most other phone tarrifs on O2 offer much more for less. O2 are scamming their iPhone customers.

Roll on Orange/Vodafone.
