    Wow Bestbuy is giving away the phone I want for free on Friday. But I have work at both of my jobs that day (Bestbuy is a bit of a drive). It also requires a 2 year contract which I only wanted to go on a 1 year contract, although with the Fascinate I’m sure it would be a good enough phone for me to make it with a 2 year contract. Decisions, Decisions..

    Edit: Yea they would probably be sold out by the time I get there. Cant call in for my main job but can for my part time job which is later in the day.

    Something isn’t right about that Comcast article @ DSLReports. I’ve been at 20/4 for quite a while (1.5-2years) and before that it was something crazy like 16/8 for at least 6 months.

    Seems like the news isn’t really news?

      Where’s the oaken stake when you need it?

      • sschaem
      • 9 years ago

      From the article “Larrabee as graphics card is still under consideration”

      Yet Intel clarified many times, recently “Intel WILL NOT release a discreet graphic card solution, and we are not interested”

      Did Intel just changed their mind this week? If so why would the CEO tell that Intel dont plan to release a discreet GPU card, yet this article say its still under consideration ?

      Someone is lying …

        • Deanjo
        • 9 years ago

        Nobody is lying, your just reading more into it then it is. Intel has no current plans to use larrabee in graphics although they have not ruled out the future possibility given the criteria to make it successful comes around.

    Google Blacklist – am I the only one angered again by hypocrisy, or just it’s not even strange that we encounter one there? Either the search engine shows something or it does not, either someone knows what to expect or they don’t write the word, geez… The double standard for synonyms would be funny if it were not making me sad overall. Ethics? Is that still a word in English?

      COICA is bad, mmmkaaaaaay?

      I really just don’t know what else to say. It’s pretty much complete blasphemy. I imagine most people who have read anything about it feel the same way.

      It takes people disagreeing for a real discussion. There’s no shortage of overly opinionated dingbats, but anyone who would actually log onto the internets to proclaim their support for this is probably headed for a mental institution.

    the “deep facebook integration” is present in the beta, it just doesnt work. Looks to me like the idea is that your status updates in skype will show up in facebook, and vice versa.

    so far it sucks.

    “Joystiq reports Minecraft earned $350,000 in a single day” Good for the owner, but I checked out the sales page the article references, and the total sales are around 250,000 – which is €250,000, or $340,000. I think he misread the sales graph. Still kudos to the developer, people seem to be liking this game a lot.

      • Waco
      • 9 years ago

      250,000 * 10 euro (13.6400 dollars) is $3,410,000 US dollars.

      EDIT: And yes, it’s totally worth $14.

      unit sales were 25936 for the ‘single day’ after the outage according to the article and sales page (based on the table of data at the bottom rather than the graphs)
      which works out to roughly $353k
      though the stats do seem weird as that day was the only day that had a period with negative registrations…
