    So, where’s the article on AMD quarterly results? Flat revenue, in spite of all the fusion goodness? No profit gains, either (unless you count the settlements)

    I can’t stand all this apple news, every day, there’s always something to say, most of it… just rumors… WTF!

      I don’t think this really has anything to do with Apple. There’s always tons of rumors in the shortbread.

    [quote<]1. Slashdot on Firefox 4, a huge pile of bugs[/quote<] I also think FF4 is not good. I'd much rather use IE9 than FF4. Chrome and Opera are head and shoulders above those though. I love how minimalistic Chrome is at default. In addition to the fact that it's the fastest browser I've ever used of course.

      • indeego

      Chrome is indeed fast. Not quite as customizable as FFox. Has more rendering issues, and printing bugs abound (we could never use it where I work, printing to paper and PDF is too vital.)
      Corps that want detailed control of their browser setup don’t quite like Google’s hold. There’s the slight issue of Google remotely running as user on every machine it’s installed on as well. Scaaary. Remember, they were haxzored by Chinese a year ago. They only told the public details of the breach 4 months thereafter. Very Scary. Chrome crashed on me more than any browser, ever, during the brief time I used it. It may tout keeping other tabs open, but Firefox (stable) never crashes on me in recent history, so why should I have to put up with a single crash in a single tab?)

      Opera is also fast, but some questionable interface and UI decisions will forever keep it on the backburner. I respect Opera, I just don’t have the time to learn its idiosyncracies, and its help system is abysmal, and it’s user community rude when I asked around, so sya.

      IE is just a slogging beast. Great, in [b<]2011[/b<] it comes out, and will be outdated on release by everyone else, and Microsoft won't touch it for 2-4 more years. Windows actively holds back the web. For now, though probably not much longer. Safari is fine. Does the job, nothing special, not a standout in any respect. None of these browsers suck, per se. I pick FF for the user-control factor, and Mozilla has never slighted me personally.

      I’ve used Firefox 4 too and was pretty disappointed with it. Most annoying is that from time to time the memory usage just keeps on climbing for no apparent reason and the computer becomes unresponsive until it just crashes. I still use chrome as my default browser. Though it is amazingly fast, it does not render all the websites properly (probably about 5to 10% of the sites i visit, so not a hug deal). I keep using opera every time they release a new version and its not bad at all. but there’s nothing that’s going to impress u either. All in all, i was pleasantly surprised by the IE9 browser. Its pretty fast (though startup doesn’t feel as fast as chrome), its rendering almost all the websites i visit properly (even though its just in beta stage, and playing videos on this browser just feels snappy. Looks like MS finally has a decent browser on hand..

    Wanna know a tip Activision? How about “advertising” the games? Take the COD stick out your ass and advertise the OTHER games you publish.
