  • A Shure drum microphone kit, a Westin Heavenly Bed feather/down pillow, $100 gift card, McSweeney's issues 1-3 (not 1st eds though, but still awesome) and a bunch of other awesome. Woooo.

    Okay - what did you get?!

  • Candy bar is actually the accepted nomenclature and not just a Sony Ericsson term. (See: LG's Chocolate.) Just sayin'. :-)

  • You know, if the box could play Pandora or Rhapsody over Wifi OR EDGE alternatively (read: was a music-playing cell phone), I'd consider it. Instead, a device that relies on your having access to an unencumbered wifi access point in order to stream whatever internet radio is active at the moment just seems pointless. Chances are, you won't get too many chances to use it away from your base, and in that case, your standard MP3 player could easily replicate something similar. *shrug*

  • Take this on through the carry-on security gate at the airport, and they'll LOVE you for it, I'm sure. Better yet, pull it out of a large duffel, with the numbers counting down.

  • It boggles the mind how people who claim to be open and enjoy networking with fellow bloggers think it's an acceptable tactic to undermine a competitior or rival's interview simply because they happen to appear in it. Add to the fact that they were 5 minutes late, obviously disappointed and upset that it wasn't an exclusive (http://www.valleywag.com/tech/ryan-block/engadgets-ryan-block-this-isnt-an-exclusive-174258.php) and just all around grumpy and it starts to look a bit suspicious. Dear Engadget: Just because you were present, doesn't mean you get to be the only ones who can publish coverage. It also doesn't mean you get to hijack other organizations (who were right on time) and their coverage at your whim. I can just see you guys bouncing on camera with any interview Game Spot or CNN runs and then sending off a blitz of cease and desist letters to each of them crying that you didn't give your consent. *That's* classy, Jason. Brilliant, even. Next time, they'll make sure to mosaic you and your "this isn't exclusive?" aw shucks right out of the frame.

  • You know, I was especially unimpressed by the fact that there are only 15 hours of gameplay available. This reminded me of Freespace but more sluggish, harder to turn and shorter on the campaign side. Mleh.

  • Very sad news for your, Mike. I didn't shoot any video of my hands on time with the N80—it wasn't production ready, and still had some pretty BIG bugs that they weren't ready to show off. The phone is amazing, with Wi-Fi and a 3MP, although no Carl Zeiss optics. Its dedicated shutter button was good times, and it orients itself in landscape mode automatically for pictures. Very exciting little tool, but sorry, no video.

  • Also, it should be mentioned that this isn't the final release of the remote—they mentioned that they may change some basic aesthetics, but nothing major.

  • Am I the only one who thinks perhaps I should become a hand model? :-) The five-button disc was certainly more intuitive than I would have thought, after several years of using the old version.

  • Not only that, but it helps if you're able to analyze a piece of news and look at it practically. Boil things down to the meat of the entry, get across the important points, and be able to recognize when something hasn't been done before. But Doug's point should not at all be taken lightly. Just sayin'. :-)

  • Personally, I hit the login screen in about that time. (As I should with an AMD 64 x2 4400+ and 2 GB of RAM...) But for some of my many startup programs to launch, it's still a bit of a mess.

  • I like that our interview is causing so much speculation and discussion. It should be noted that there were a few questions I asked on the video that I had already received answers to from a separate TiVo rep before going on camera. They were: A) Series 3's shipping capacity. (On video, this is incorrect, but Pony corrected himself after we shot.) B) If you could (stupidly) downscale an HD recording to "basic" quality or some such. I was told yes, even though that made little sense, and didn't think to confirm or deny before asking on camera. Pony's answer is correct. C) Who will be manufacturing the new TiVo? The person I spoke to before Pony said they would be manufactured by TiVo. That's the reason I asked about the manufacturers on camera. All your talk about Google acquiring TiVo is nothing new, and frankly, I'd welcome it. So long as Google knew what they were doing (and they usually do) as far as ad-placement and annoyance levels are concerned, it could bring some great features and low cost points to the model. (Think, no more monthly fees, if you opt-in to slightly more aggressive ads?) Meanwhile, TiVo's recent inclusion of much partnered-with-Yahoo content shouldn't be ignored... You can bet that TiVo would have to Ctrl+Z all that Yahoo stuff we're seeing on our boxes if Google up and bought them... Time will tell, I suppose...
