Taken from ARS: The new IEEE 802.22 standard has been published and will finally allow manufacturers to start producing standardized devices that will use the white space vacated by analog TVs over two years ago. The standards will provide networking in areas over a 62 mile radius at speeds of up to 22Mbps.
In theory, that means as few as 307 devices could cover the entire United States. (In reality, it would likely take many more than that.)
With all the cloud OSes like ChromeOS and B2G (Mozilla) we are going to need something for devices that use those to flourish. I think the cloud OS thing may be a good idea. since no matter what device you use your files are always there. Specially good if you use several devices. Still would like to have offline modes though. However this is very awesome and I hope this gets launched! This is also cheaper for the ISPs as they don't have to worry about cables and outages would happen less often.
Ok here are the issues I have with the 'cosmic panda' layout on youtube: This is the "cosmic panda" layout from youtube First impressions: the channel d0esn't allow you to play vids directly from it like the old layout.
this requires more steps to watch people's vids be referencing username.
also to view playlists requires more steps as well, and you cannot view those from the channel either Playlists:
also I do not like the new playlist access method, you can not have it in a nice vertical list that displays more info about the videos on the side.
all it does is have a tiny side scrolling list that just has thumbnails and you have to hover over each one for the video info and it doesn't show as much info as the old layout.
I also don't think it utilizes widscreen layouts good enough for the main video pages. there is lots of empty space that could be used for more info or related
RE: RIP: Borders Books This was one of the rare good hangout spots in my area. I would go and read manga and drink coffee from the seattle's best place... then I would buy some of the manga I liked and it was a good way to spend the evening. Now that they are leaving there are very few good hangout spots in my area and there's nowhere else that sells manga! I would have to order online and wait 1 week or more to get it and I just wanna pick it up that same day! This is depressing.
This is better then the original. It's nice to hear the un-autotuned version.Doesn't sound all gurggley like cher's voice did. LOL. They did a great job with this one. I had this on an old cover cd and I missed it so much and I just found it! This was made by the Countdown Dance Masters from Madacy Entertainment. Glad they are still around! This song is a huge part of me and it feels wierd to share it, I hope you like it.
I found the ninth circle of HELL!!!! TICKLE ME ELMO!!!! There are so many videos on youtube about this! Tons of kids and babies are scared of Tickle me elmo and TMX Elmo! How in the hell can they be so scared of it? This is so wierd!
Ithaa under the Indian Ocean restaurant converted to a one room hotel so people can sleep with the fishes. neat idea... but I wouldn't wanna wake up in davy jones locker though... that would suck to drown to death becuase someone got too rowdy!!! what do you all think?
Google Maps for Android Labs Offers Offline Caching
They are gonna need a more offline version due to all the extreme capping the cell phone providers are doing.(many are only having it at 2GB and for navving that would be blown quickly) it would be nice to have a whole region on your smartphone. You can just download the maps with wifi at home for free and then take it on your trip without needing to be raped on data charges for a 1,000 mile trip. I know that with some prepaid plans some people have had to pay 8 bucks worth of data charges for a 20 mile trip and that all adds up eventually you're paying upwards of 40-50/mo just to navigate. for those people who can't get regular contract data this would be a godsend.
all the data not wasted for just navving can be used for web browsing and many would be very happy about this.
and phone can definitly hold the data... on regular GPS units they have around 4GB of int. mem. and the map usage was around 1.8-3GB for the whole US an…
A restaurant in western Pennsylvania says it's no longer allowing children under age 6
McDain's Restaurant and Golf Center
The thing is all it does is alienate their potential customers... lots of people have kids and you can't avoid it. Why sacrifice your business at that expense? I can understand if the place was upper scale and required reservations and served a full bar of alcohol...
but a regular golf course restaurant isn't that big of a deal.
I've heard also of terrible things Buffets inc did to a breastfeeding mother by kicking her out of old country buffet! baby's gotta eat too. most BF moms are discreet and nice about it and then some perv that shouldn't be looking at a BF mom for long enough to be annoyed complains and starts ****. . and most places are big enough for if people don't like what they see they can move to another table..
and people want the BF moms to go to the bathroom instead.... but there's so many germs and bad things th…
just watched tron legacy.... it was pretty good. the music wasn't as happenin as I thought it was. Daft Punk was in it and you couldn't even tell. They shouldda had some edgy fierce beats in there!!! that would have completed the movie a lot more!!!! The acting was a little off but it was decent...visually it was AWESOME!!! 7/10
Buffets Inc, I've mentioned them several times in my blog. They are evil for shutting down some great locations and laying off more then 400 excellent employees at the worst time ever.
AT&T for thier crap against ISP innovation, they are the ones who started the bandwidth caps, they have crappy cell service in both network and support, they are anti-net-neutrality, etc....
Adobe for making flash so bloated and insecure, thier software is very expensive, flash plugin is very unstable and causes lots of headaches, thier server backend software is problematic, and thier support for paying customers suck.
Ubisoft is the bad game dev with thier crap DRM where you had to be connected to thier servers constantly in order to just play a single player game! Many titles suffered from this.
Comcast for being a crappy cable company with caps and all kinds of mess.
Amazon for thier cloud hosting service failures taking out sites like minecraft, reddit and foursquare (sites I use) and n…
Redhat (as a company) is stable, professional and secure. They are right in line with thier target market. Synced well.
Canonical/Ubuntu is unstable, immature, and insecure, they have no clue what thier target market is. Not in sync with thier userbase.
ubuntu keep going after markets where it's unstable, specially for a free product. Linux is seen as a power user's OS.... It is no way being seen as an OS for gramma to get on FB and play farmville with her sewing buddies. That market is slim pickings.
They are pulling a nintendo.... neglecting thier core users to go after new things.... the grass isn't greener on the other side. it may be an 'emerging market', however even that is stagnating. those grammas will want more from thier setup once they learn more....
Canonical/Ubuntu's image is also arrogant and they feel like thier on this "grand mission" to "humanize" linux.... but it gets to thier heads and anyone that challenges it…
