This post by Dave Pollard is exceptionally provocative. Go read it. We need more trust in each other, more self-confidence, and to exercise more courage in our daily lives, regardless of whether or not we're willing to give up money.

My Blog

I know that there is no end to the work of finding balance -- somehow finding a comfortable spot between two ends of every continuum. It feels like so much of a compromise to be in between somewhere, when what I really want is to be able to fully embrace each end of the continuum simultaneously. Completely loner hermit, completely gregarious people lover -- all at once. It's not so easy to live that way, though.

We strive to reach our goals, and what happens when we meet them? There's the ... read more

It's taken a bit longer than expected, but NVIDIA has finally announced that it's extended its SLI technology to allow for three-way setups, in addition to the usual two or four-way ones. That, the company says, should give you a 2.8x performance increase over a single GPU system, letting you crank up all the settings while accepting nothing less than a full 60 frames per second. That will come at a pretty hefty cost, of course, as you'll need three GeForce 8800 GTX or GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics cards, not to mention a PC capable of accommodating them. If that's not an impediment for you, however, you should soon be basking in the glow of 384 stream processors, a 110+ gigatexel per second texture fill rate, and no less than two gigabytes of graphics memory.

There's actually some nice gear in the Cyberdyne Cinema -- B&W speakers, a Mitsu HC5000 1080p projector, and Rotel amps -- but anything dressed up this hideously can't escape a little caption fun. We'll get you started:



Dante: "Oh wow... it crashed my eyes."

Evan: "The failure of T3 wrecked havoc on Arnold's home theater budget."

Josh: "Cyberdyne's budget was substantially smaller in 2007."

Ryan: "Apparently this is all that passes for a decent home theater after the robot rebellion."

Nilay: "My eyes sense tackiness, the data could be called pain."

Thomas: "Pleather: Tougher than Judgment Day."

What's that, you say? Reportedly, that picture you see above is the Motorola A1600, which could be the long-awaited successor to the A1200 MING. Granted, we've no proof to go along with it, but the design sure fits the mold. According to Chinese-based eNet, this bugger will sport quad-band GSM connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera (with autofocus), WiFi, assisted-GPS, a couple of built-in games, a "talking dictionary" and a Linux-based OS. Interestingly enough, that last tidbit certainly conflicts with other reports we've heard, but we suppose time will tell (look for a February launch) what system really ends up running the MING 2 show.

Remember that autofocus fix that Canon was supposedly working up? Turns out, the company isn't quite ready to start accepting faulty EOS-1D Mark IIIs just yet, but it is shipping out upgraded versions to new buyers. Rob Galbraith managed to wrap his hands around not one, but three of the new DSLRs in order to substantiate his findings, and what he found was noticeable improvement. In summary, the sub-mirror fix was said to boost the performance of the AF, as it enabled the camera to deliver "about the same number of in-focus frames whether it was warm or cold." Unfortunately, it seems that the solution still left a lot to be desired; Mr. Galbraith noted that it still couldn't match the EOS-1D Mark II N, and implied that there was still room for betterment. 'Course, we're really just scratching the surface on his thorough (and we mean thorough) look at the sub-mirror fix and v1.1.3 firmware, so if this issue has been hounding you, do yourself a favor and check out the read link.

It's already developed a "gas gauge" for its servers, and a greener means of recycling silicon, but IBM now looks to be taking its increasing environmental awareness to an even larger scale, with it, Enterprise Information Management, and Evergreen Energy developing a greenhouse gas meter that promises to measure the carbon output of various industries and devices, according to IDG. Dubbed GreenCert, the software employs a whole mess of IBM tools including various WebSphere applications, along with an "engine" designed by the folks at C-Lock in order to take a snapshot of a particular company's carbon footprint. It then does it's thing again after the company's taken measures to reduce its carbon emissions, giving them proof of their reductions which they can use to get carbon emission credits that can be traded on the carbon market. The software won't be available in its final form until sometime in the first half of 2008, however, but those looking to get a jump on things can apparently get a beta version from C-Lock right now.

Hot on the heels of the original, massively successful Vii, comes the Vii 2, this time from "Kensington." We're pretty hot on the NES-inspired design and ergonomic, soft-touch Vii-mote, but seriously -- a "porwer" button? Time to start bringing the A-game, guys. Check a few more pics after the break.

If you've been drooling over the little TomTom add-on for the iPhone we nabbed a "photo" of the other day, you can probably wipe the spittle off your chin. It looks like the image makes a fatal in flaw in borrowing its barcode from a fairly well-known iPod fake (pictured above). Additionally, in researching our tipster, we've discovered he's a graphic designer with a penchant for Apple fakes -- not exactly a confidence builder. So it appears we've got more rumor shot down -- though we hope TomTom and Jobs are paying attention, because it's painfully obvious that the people want GPS on this thing, and they want it now.

For all you Eee users out there who've been trying to squeeze Ubuntu into the little white box, some help is on the way. A kind and enterprising Linux enthusiast has used their precious time and energy to put together an Eee-customized build of the much-loved OS, which includes fully-integrated hardware support, native wireless drivers, functioning Ethernet support, tweaks for low-resolution desktop environments, and a bunch of other little enhancements that will make using Canonical's powerhouse a lot more pleasant on your tiny laptop. Word on the street is that development and refinement continues on the build, so expect improvements as time wears on. Now, if only someone could perfect that Amiga OS build for the Eee...

We aren't exactly sure why a media-playing e-dictionary has us this jazzed up, but it probably has something to do with that absolutely delicious design. Whatever the case, it's available now in South Korea for ₩278,000 ($301) -- got a cheap ticket to Seoul, anyone?

Intel, clearly not wanting to be left in the dust by the slew of new wireless technologies that are starting to converge, nasty-like, inside our shiny new devices, has begun testing on a chip which can effortlessly swap between WiFi, WiMAX, and DVB-H. The idea is that the chip's radio would talk to your WiFi at home, hand over the data to WiMAX if you hit the road, and also allow you to pull down digital television while staying mobile -- without having to use an array of separate radios or silicon. This should open up a whole new vista of possibilities for time-wasting activities, so whenever manufacturers want to get this into our phones / laptops, just say the word. We're ready.
