  • I've been doing it like this for years... Also, get a wide-angle rear view attachment, it expands the field of view for your rear view to further eliminate blind spots. Also, be aware that while this mirror arrangement eliminates blind spots that cars can hide in, motorcycles may still be able to hide in the small gaps left behind.

  • I'm not so dissatisfied with AT&T's decisions regarding charging for 3G use, for two reasons. Number one is that AT&T pays a lot of money to rent this part of the spectrum for 3G data and the microcell is making use of the limited radio space to do the data transfers. It's not a public piece of spectrum and as such AT&T has a right to charge for it. Number two is that if you have a home broadband connection, you are very likely to also have a Wi-fi network that your modern smartphone should be able to connect to and utilize data at much higher speeds than over 3G to the microcell, dramatically reducing if not eliminating the 3G usage at all, and mitigating if not eliminating the impact of this particular AT&T policy.

  • I wonder whether AT&T's preponderance of data-hungry iPhones on its network skews the results any.

  • I love how many classic titles are being remade and put on the iPhone. Go nostalgia!

  • This looks pretty shady. One photo, no data such as battery life, or even filled-out information tabs along the bottom. Sounds like a scam to me. Following the "via" links back four levels deep shows us an Inquirer post: http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2008/11/06/iphone-keyboard-spotted It's far more skeptical about the whole thing. If the iPhone supported a Bluetooth keyboard, why wouldn't it support the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard?

  • Is it just me, or do the fingers in that photo seem freakishly long?

  • Specifically what I had a problem with in this article is that the title is "Pay for your sins online" which is not mentioned in the Stuff article whatsoever, and kind of irks me as poking fun at Christians.

  • The notion that you could pay for your sins is blasphemous. In the Bible it clearly states that nothing we can do can reconcile us to God, including paying money. It is only by accepting God's free gift of salvation and acknowledging that we are unworthy of it that we may be saved.

  • Blu-ray is a storage technology, and OLED is a display technology. It doesn't make sense to say that OLED would replace Blu-ray any more than it would make sense to say apples are replacing car wheels.

  • The page for this phone smells terrible. iPhone interface photoshopped onto prototypes, and this horrid thing: http://img0.chinavasion.com/images/Chinavasion-CVSL-112-10x-xx.jpg There isn't a projector in existence that takes photos this good when in use, or makes blurry-outline glows in the air. They claim that it is an "actual use photo" too, when it is so obviously a mockup. Sounds like a cool concept though.

  • Gotta use what works. Apple definitely doesn't have a touch PC though. The credit for the big stuff on the TouchSmart goes to HP.

  • Me too. I'd love to get my hands on one and put it through its paces. With all the other features it's kind of in a different class from the Drobo. Cheaper too.
