Toshiba readies Cell-based graphics engine

Johan Struwwelpeter

All that okay but...

This has to be the first instance the cell processor is used outside Sony, arguably IBM has offered it on server blades, if I remember correctly, but guess nobody bought'em cause there's 0 noise about that . That's a good thing to see the cell in consumery apps, after all it WAS supposed to be in black goods too .

First Vista service pack beta for 07

Johan Struwwelpeter

ha ha

"i did say that i would not buy vista, but then it came as the pre-loaded OS on my new Toshiba laptop.

i have found it a very capable and secure OS to use.

i prefer it over win2k (which is our standard office OS) and prefer it over XP (which is on my other 2 machines).

i'm very impressed with it's performance with all the applications i use, including the resource hungry CS2.

with the addition of Readyboost to aid performace i see no reason why i shouldn't upgrade my other machines and recommend to out IT dept. that they consider implenting it in the office (compatibility pending.

Vista is a good system, i'm very impressed with it and hve yet to experience any bugs. "


Thats exactly what I thought after my new HP lapley came with Vista inside - until the novelty halo wore off and problems started appearing out of nowhere . Readyboost just tears my HD apart so no to that, and the .Net security updates have utterly and totally screwed up my most used applications, which are old but trusted and justified . So basically Vista it's so crappy ,ohh its crappy .
