First off: I hate Apple advertising. The whole PC vs. Apple arguement with virii is  retard. Gee, your OS isn't a target because most people don't USE an apple. Why would you write a virus for <10% potential impact? Therefore you don't have existing code for virii to build on and create hundreds upon thousands of variants. Sheesh. IBM should advertise OS/2 Warp is Virus Free. Security through obscurity. Now with BANYAN VINES!  finger

As to the interface, it IS more slick than the Windows stuff, and certainly more accessible than the average UNIX/LINUX implementations.

On the other hand, you could just load http://osx.portraitofakite.com/ into your windows XP OS and get all the benefits, AND the not risk not being able to run PC apps / games.  (give that site a login name, then use the pulldown menus to download FlyAKiteOSX). If you ARE looking to run Apple apps, you're going to have to go to the big fruit though.

The only problems I've had with it have to do with running Remote Desktop through another Remote Desktop on a citrix platform, and that was only the minimizing to toolbar (where I couldn't actually minimize).
Minor stuff, and the benefits are there. HIGHLY recommended.

Oh, install EVERYTHING, and then upgrade iColorFolder to the latest version to be able to change folder image styles to some awesome ones. biggrin

No, they aren't paired that way. Go through the following :

Hit the sync button on the 360.
then when the lights are rotating, hit the white synch button on the controller.

They should find each other.

It's hard to believe that it only lasted 4 seasons.

I've already got 54hrs into Samurai Warriors 2 and I'm just leveling Nobunaga Oda. That's enough grinding for me, thanks.

As to Marvel Ultimate Alliance, does anyone know the ESRB rating for that? Doh! Just checked. Teen for mild language and violence.
My son loves superheroes (due to an early exposure to them by my ex-wife  smoke He's only 3 and wants nothing more than to "Kill badguys". )

I don't think that game would help him any. I'm actually thinking of not letting him play video games without me playing with him at the time. That limits the games quite a bit. I might just get myself a Wii so he can have at least a LITTLE physical activity while playing games. Other than that, he's only getting age appropriate games, regardless of what she does.

Since your dad's system isn't going to need DX10 functions  :slywink: I'd suggest something like a 9800 pro. It's cheap and it has the dual-outs. Even if he's looking at recycling monitors, you can pick up a DVI to 15pin VGA adapter for 5bux from www.atitech.com 's store.

If he wanted 3 or more you're looking at Quad-head video cards.

Note that Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista support multimonitor mode right outta the box. (just make sure you have the right video card drivers installed).

If he's serious about the bloomberg thing, recommend a widescreen LCD like the dell 2007WFP or 2407WFP. Their stands swing into portrait mode which is TEH BOMZ0Rs for reading text / browsing etc.  The only thing you'll need to configure is a hot-key for rotating the display. This can be done from ATI's (or other MFGRs) drivers.

 saywhat K, it's first thing in the morning, but even my coffee-starved brain immediately sees the HD point.

What came first : digital transmission or HDTV?

If there was no HDTV, what would be the incentive for consumers to move to a digital television?

It comes in 1's and 0's? Nobody would switch over, and unless there was some sort of upgrade or shiny bauble that dragged everyone into it, you'd have people using the same television set that they had for years. As a matter of fact, that's exactly what happened before the HD incentive was around.

In needing to go to digital, the FCC needs market buy-in. They need demand to convert the +90% of american homes that have a television set which can't handle the digital signal.They went through set-top fiasco when the cable companies expanded beyond the 12 channel limitation in the 80's (IIRC); they want to avoid that this time around. They can't very well say to the public that they would HAVE to go out and buy a set-top box to keep watching what they already have.  (one per TV, no less).

As it stands, televisions are being required to accept digital signals WITHOUT A CONVERTER. That's where "HDTV Ready" came from; it's still just a monitor with speakers. You still need another component for you to be able to recieve HDTV (and subsequently, it's also a DTV ready not a true DTV). The market is just starting to shift to HDTVs and DTVs (thats where EDTV comes into play; 480p digital without the HDTV components).

I hope this illustrates my point. If you want to discuss or launch a rebuttal, feel free to do so in a new thread.

Yeah. Sony. Straws. Grasping. I'm still reeling from the past two weeks issues; I keep feeling like there's another shoe that's about to fall.

What's the point of Media Extender?  Why would I plug into my PC to watch TV through my PC/360 on my TV when I can just watch TV on my TV?

Is there a way to surf the web through Media Extender or is the sole functionality getting music on the 360 and viewing pictures?
As far as I can tell it's so you can stream video , music and pictures to your 360.  You can play your own music oiff your PC in game.  And AFAIK it's only one way to the 360- you can't send stuff to your PC.  There's no web browser on the 360, and honestly I hope they never do release one.  I can just imagine some PS3 fanboy fraktard writing a virus to take down 360's (if that's possible)  icon_wink

Media Extender lets you share photos and music from your PC to your 360. Basically, it means you don't have to waste HDD space on the 360 for ripping music, just stream it from your PC.
If you want video, you need to have Windows XP Media Centre edition, and not all codecs work. Windows Vista (Ultimate edition, and possibly others) will have the same video streaming capabilities.

You can take a pic from your PC library and set it up as your wallpaper for every blade. (only one, can't set different pic AFAIK ... AsFarAsIKnow ATB  :slywink:)

The 360 is turned on remotely by powering on a controller (hit the X logo). It takes a second, you don't need to hold it down.
You CAN turn off a wireless controller OR the console & controller(s) by holding the X logo for 3 seconds at any time when it's on. A menu appears on the right side and you choose from there.
I don't use this option generally; the play-n-charge kit doesn't charge if you turn it off this way. Hit the power button instead (while the controllers are plugged in). You'll note their charge lights stay on. Once they've charged it goes out. The 360 is still considered OFF during this power-off charge time, and no fans are running.
14987  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony Public Relations = Grasping at Straws on: October 23, 2006, 12:51:11 AM
Not that this is even remotely on-topic, but the mandate itself has nothing to do with HDTV.

Check out what your local FCC has to say on the topic.

Note the following :

Quote
DTV broadcast technology is more flexible and efficient than today’s more widespread broadcast technology, which is called “analog.”

For example, rather than being limited to providing one analog programming signal, a broadcaster will be able to provide a sharp "high definition" (HDTV) program or multiple "standard definition" digital programs simultaneously. Providing several program streams using the digital spectrum is called "multicasting." The number of programs a station can send using the digital spectrum depends on the level of picture detail, also known as "resolution," desired in each programming stream. DTV can provide picture resolution, interactive video, and data services that easily surpass the capabilities of “analog” technology.

Converting to DTV also will free up parts of the scarce and valuable broadcast spectrum. Those portions of the spectrum can then be used for other important services, such as public and safety services (police and fire departments, emergency rescue), and advanced wireless services.

TV stations serving all markets in the United States are airing digital television programming today, although most will continue to provide analog programming through February 17, 2009. At that point, full-power TV stations will cease broadcasting on their current analog channels, and the spectrum they use for analog broadcasting will be reclaimed and put to other uses.

I'm guessing there are a few very interested companies in these spectrums and have been applying the pressure to their respective government agencies to get the spectrums released.

As to Sony's grasping at straws, I really think this launch is going to make them look WORSE than Microsoft.I'm not sayin' its a good thing; competition makes MS push the envelope.
14988  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony Public Relations = Grasping at Straws on: October 22, 2006, 03:58:05 AM
Here's the condensed version of Kevin's comment: DTV, not HDTV, is the mandate by 2010.

Satellite is already Digital, they want to free up the wavelengths that analog TV signal use as they are very valuable.

They don't care about how crisp the picture is. They want you recieving 1's and 0's instead of wavelengths.

The only reason HDTV is rolled into that is because it gives people "incentive" to get new sets.

DVD playback was more of an issue last gen IMO.  Given that the Wii isn't designed for bedroom playing, odds are that whatever room the Wii will go in already has a DVD player now that also does a better job.  I don't think DVD support is much of selling point for consoles anymore and it would have bumped up costs because Nintendo would have to play a licensing fee on every Wii sold even if most people didn't use the functionality.  That's why MS didn't let people play DVDs unless you bought the remote on Xbox 1- that way they only paid the fee on each sale of the remote, not the console itself. 

Kevin I know its not a selling point, but its something most people have kind of come to expect. I haven't put a DVD in a console in probably 4 years (and that was just to test it), but I still like to have, yup, you guessed it, OPTIONS, something Nintendo isn't giving me at this point, with the Wii. They are so polarizing to me; I love my DS and probably play it more than my PSP at this point, but I didn't care too much for the Gamecube after a year or so, and get less excited about the Wii on a weekly basis.

the 2007WFP has a 6ms reponse time and the following connections :

Digital Visual Interface (DVI) Analog video signal RGB, S-Video, Composite video

So yeah, this would do the job. It's not as "L337" as the 2407, but it's still a damned fine monitor.

Plus, if you decide to get an arm for it (so you don't take up desktop space) then it will actually work. Most of them will work with that (such as the Ergotron series) however the 2407 doesn't. (it's too heavy ... all weight ratings are based on 2inch depth, add 6lbs for each inch over 2).

Looks like you want a Gateway FPD2185W.

You could also get a 2407FPW from Dell (24") or a 2405FPW (which is the older model; it's what I use). I use my Dell for a TV set with an HD PVR cable box, my 360 and a PC monitor (I have the 360 going through a VGA adapter, DVI on the PC and using components on the cable box). I still have a composite in and an SVIDEO in. There is also the soundbar available, although they aren't all that great. (the only advantage is that it mounts to the monitor).

The Gateway runs about 450USD, whereas the 2405FPW will give you an extra 3 inches, media reader, a little slower (12ms as opposed to 8ms) and run another couple hundred dollars more.

It IS f***ing gorgeous though. biggrin

I've not seen the 2407 in action.

I love the thumbnail views and shortcut keys available in IE7.

Oh, and I hated firefox. The open-source nature of their plugins gives the app a HUGE YMMV tag with it. It almost needs a distro package with specific plugins selected (that ACTUALLY WORK with the version you're running). The vanilla Firefox doesn't impress me at all.

Also, Firefox has the same issues with vulnerabilities as IE so that doesn't wash. As of right now it's more secure (according to http://secunia.com/product/4227/) but give it a month, and you'll have to turn off your java enabled flag.  disgust

My only concern with IE7 is compatibility with apps. I was IE7b2 before and some apps (like www.skillport.com) were hooped.

My granddad passed away from lung cancer, my wife and I sadly lost our baby recently, I have a new couple of lumps on my arms now that are bing tested for cancer, things are not going so well for me right now.  So what now?  Who shall ridicule me?  Who will find old threads to try and prove something?  Who will call me out as a sympathy whore?  If you notice, I posted about none of these things in any of the forums (GT, OO, BC).  Because I am afraid of what you guys will say.  I don't feel close to any of you like I used to.  I don't feel like I can talk about personal things to any of you anymore without subjecting myself to ridicule.

 saywhat That's horrible man. I'm sorry to hear for your loss. frown

If my reviews ever sound like this, you guys let me know.  I'll quit writing immediately and seek out an English 101 class.

Yeah, but your "graphics" ratings are now of questionable value, considering you had your eyes butchered.
