In my experience, i've never known any iphone to have descent battery life. ever. i would bet this trend continues.

WTF?

SB Roar ?

Sound Blaster Roar is conspicuously missing. I've read it is on par and even better than the Bose.

Re: WebGL Demo

I too thought at first there was nothing happening and was wondering what the controls were in the upper corner. then i click inside. then i held the mouse button down and moved it rapidly around back and forth and up and down. that's damn cool.

Re: Why?

Our government, as well as a large part of the southern demographic, still has morality, ethics and credibility? hmm. who'd a thunk it?

Android is a BURNING 'hellstew' of malware, cackles Apple's Cook

cooking the facts to suit his stew

well, seems to me that Cook is making up "facts" to pander to his biased audience. I would like to see the actual facts to back up his statements, if they do indeed exist, which i highly doubt. he's a plutocrat leading his shareholders blindly down the path. i see no innovation or thinking differently on the horizon for apple under his command. basically everything the "new" iOS 8 has implemented seems to already been standard on Android for some time now. glad to see they're "innovating" and catching up. what's up for ios9? a choice of browsers perhaps? ooh the ios users must be drooling over that update why they stave away their pennies to camp out to get that innovative piece of kit.

No longer a 'hobby', Apple TV rakes in ONE BEEELLION DOLLARS

tommydokc

apple tv is a joke.

i've tried chromecast, appletv and roku. the winner by far IMHO and not even close is the roku. the other two cannot even compare. I started out with appletv... took it back and tried the google dongle.. took it back and the roku is still streaming away. i don't see it changing anytime soon either. anyone who says otherwise is talking foolishly and have never actually used all or at the very least any of them or apparently all they really want access to is netflix.

win 8 kb

all of you who cannot manage to use a kb and mouse efficiently on something as simple as windows 8 are really the inept ones among us.

Re: Which one ? Windows 8 with luck

windows 8 a disaster for those who wish to use keyboards and mice? really? so you've never actually used it then and are just blathering about like an idiot. tell us in detail how hard it is to use a kb and rodent on win8. i've been doing it for months with absolutely no trouble at all. I can navigate it as easy as any other OS.

PDFXchange Viewer for me 2

I used to use Foxit but discovered the much better PDFXchange. Been using it for several yrs now. hands down the best IMHO.

a google voice everywhere.

my current android 2.2 with google voice search can do , IMO, pretty much the same thing. just not as polished, granted, as you have to use more defining phrasing but it will work to get the same/similar results. some users here have the new iphone and i've got to admit siri works pretty darn well with casual phrasing of what you're wanting.

BUSTED! Secret app on millions of phones logs key taps

Holmes

seems to me

after reading all the posts, that it's just on the Sprint network devices. my ATT Captivate does not contain it, as of yet. has anyone been bothered enough to notice this variable and confirm or deny?

Eight New Yorkers sue Baidu for $16m

ah the idiocy

of my fellow american assholes. shameful and disgraceful. apparently a lot more money than sense, but then I fully suspect that only a 5 cent american nickel would cover that in this case.

48 sec to boot?

you make it sound as if that's 48 minutes. What will you ever do with those extra seconds saved that the SSD may or may not provide?

Google and MS sued over links to file-sharing site

tommydokc

destiny?

Appropriately named any how, as I can certainly guess where their true destiny lies after going after MS and the Google. Maybe they're just looking for an excuse to file bankruptcy. I'm a huge blues fan and have never heard of them. I can't even begin to imagine prodding the lawyers from both of these companies to come after me.
