i am glad that i went with a simultaneous dual-band router rather than one that is strictly N despite the cost though.

ABSOLUTELY.  Dual band is a must so you can still have G coverage and not murder your N speeds (and also extend your network a bit).

I picked up the Dlink DIR-825. It has the dual band.

Q-range for 5ghz spectrum would be the only decrease correct?

Topic says it all.

Thinking of moving from standard G wireless to N. Has anyone 'upgraded' their older wireless gear and noticed significant speed increases? How about range? Does that also increase?

Thanks,
Roman

I gotta say that until now I was thinking that this edition of COD would be the same game-type set in a different era. I was looking forward to playing.

Now I can safely say that I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING.

New game types and options on how you play ie: combat training. Sold sold sold.

And I'm there!   Check our twitter feed as well.   

Great article Ron - thanks for posting. I do have one question if you don't mind (or perhaps someone else can answer) what is the deal with Combat Training? I have read and re-read the paragraph below and cannot figure it out?

The game looks pretty familiar until Dan leaps from a second story window in a new mode called “Combat Training”.   The game mode allows folks to bridge the game between offline multiplayer and online multiplayer.  Combat Training has a completely separate multiplayer perk, rank, and level system that is separate from the online component.  Treyarch realized that 30% of people have never played the franchise online, and this new mode is meant to fix those shenanigans.   This mode came about from a dummy training mode that the internal team created to bring an offline dummy called “Larry” to life in the game world.  This feature grew until it was a completely offline or cooperative multiplayer mode that will ship with the game.

What are all these ADS you guys are seeing? I see a few ads for things to download but my GAME LIBRARY is one click away (ok two - I click the xbox button then the game library). I seldom see ads on the dashboard and they're super easy to ignore.

You don't have the Spotlight bar appear first thing upon booting up?  Right now when I turn on my 360 I get audio and video telling me how great Halo Reach is, with assorted other things I don't want displayed to the right.  Sure, it's a short ways to navigate to what I want--my games--but imagine if you had to click past an ad screen every time you booted up a Windows machine.

There is an option somewhere if memory serves that you can configure as to what you see on bootup.
1056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox Live price goes up on: August 30, 2010, 06:30:58 PM
being on the Northern side of the border means that we don't get:

Netflix
Last FM

And most likely won't get:

ESPN (not that I care)
MSNBC (not that I care)

The 10 bucks is in no way a deal breaker - BUT it would be nice if they leveled the playing field ie: access to internet radio and Netflix.

Thought it would be fun to share what we are getting in terms of mileage. I moved from a Chev Blazer to a more sedate 2010 Corolla last year and have steadily been watching my mileage increase.

2010 Corolla
35000k (21k miles)
42 ltr tank (11.1 gal)
80/20 city/hwy
605km best tank yet

One thing that I am amazed at is just how long it took to get better mileage - I was thinking that I would have seen increases @20k not 37k.

I have never ever paid for Live (xbox or 360), but am really considering picking up this and a year live card.
Loved playing the original halo local mp, but 2 and 3 were just single play exp for me, so I'm really behind the times.  I am a CoD junkie so am having to decide if it would be worth it with black ops coming out.
Maybe someone from the beta can elaborate on the "feel" of mp vs. CoD?
Edit: by the way I mainly play team deathmatch and hc s&d

Two wildly different games. Comparing them is like comparing apples and bananas. Both are supposed to be really great games.

I played the Beta for the two weeks it was out. I think they're doing something cool with the addition of classes in the MP game. It should mix things up a bit. The weapon change up is cool, a couple new and many tweaked. Multiplayer is still HEAVILY focused on being good at tossing grenades.

and jumping and shooting. Jumping and shooting. Jumping and shooting - do I sense a trend here? Tongue

okay okay I will fall on my sword here and admit that I grossly over generalized a large segment of workers with my grade 6 education analogy. I am sorry. However in hindsight it does apply to this facility  nod

Background - I am the sole member of our 'Social Committee' here in the IT department. We are in the pharmaceutical distribution industry and have warehouses all over Canada. The warehouse attached to this IT facility has decided to unionize last November and are still in negotiations - fine with me and no skin off my balls.

There are 5 BBQs on this site. I sent an email to the HR manager and Distribution Ctr Manager last Friday to see about securing 1-2 for an IT team building BBQ for all 15 of us.

The Dist Mgr responds that he has an issue with the event as it would appear to be IT only and that 'optics' aren't exactly looking good in terms on how the ADULTS in the warehouse would feel about a BBQ that does not involve them.

WTF! icon_evil finger

Am I or any of my cohorts here upset in the least with a union sponsored BBQ notice down in the communal coffee area that will not involve us? No. We could care less.

Thanks to all unions out there for turning an everyday simple exercise into a rolling ball of shit.
Here's a handy hint - stay in school past grade 6 and get an education thereby empowering you to EARN your place in working society rather than demand your place.

Thanks,
Roman

heck I even broke down and bought MW2 again about a month ago. I missed the MP hook.

Did the glitches bother me? Sure they did - but as I said before online I am not nearly good enough for the glitches and other 'exploits' to ruin my day. If I am not happy I simply leave that lobby and join a new one.
Were they frustrating at times (unlimited care package?) sure but you role with it and move on.

My son is very happy that MW2 is back in the house and I enjoy watching him play and am amazed by his skill for only 9yrs old. Heck I remember he joined us 'old guys' once while we were playing on Sub Base and he got the winning kill by by jumping off the railing on some stairs, pulls a 180 degree turn in mid air and nails a guy with akimbo rangers  eek.

Will I buy it. Yes - will I play online - yes. Will I rage quit - no. There are more important things in life to be angry with. Gaming for fun is not one of them.

hi.

i'm sorry you think i'm calling you out.  that wasn't my intent.

i certainly don't know what the used kindle market prices are, and if yours is a good deal
or not.  perhaps its the greatest deal ever.

it just sort of rubbed me as used car salesmanship to say that the new kindle has "minimal" improvements, when i've been reading about an awful lot of kindle 2 owners who are selling them to buy the kindle 3's



Calvin is right. If you are not interested in what he or someone else is selling than don't click the link - plain and simple.
Perhaps Gangeli is the type to inform every consumer he meets either on the street or in the stores that they may not be getting the best deal... but I highly doubt that. Could you imagine if he were to walk up to a potential sale taking place on a used car lot by telling the customers that the salesman is perhaps lying when explaining that they don't need the 2010 model as his 2008 model is just fine. Would gangeli do that? I doubt he would - so what is it about the internet that turns allows these people to act on their passive aggressiveness?

Now I will exit stage left and uphold my feelings posted above as I am not interested in purchasing the kindle.
