  1. Review - Rainmeter

    2.1 r895 Beta (Aug 9, 2011)

    This is one of the best desktop enhancement programs out there. It can be allot to take in for a first time user but once you get a handle on it, it will be one of the must have programs for you.
    I modify and combine the skins to suit my tastes and love the flexibility of the program for creating just the right look. Just remember to always make a copy of any configs or skins before you start messing with them so you can return things to their default state if you run into any issues. Really easy program to work with once you learn what you are doing.

  2. Comment - Apple does it again? Doctors Samsung images in court filing?

    What I don't understand is how you can patent a "look". I get the whole tech part and of course the patents behind it. But to say "no you can't make it look like mine" is ridiculous. It's like saying you can't use that brush stroke to paint with because it's the one I use, or your house is the same color as mine you have to change it to something else. If the phone was exactly the same then yea, I can see calling it a ripoff but they are anything but the same.
    Allot of phones out there look similar, but that doesn't make them the same.. My lg neon looks similar, so why not go after them as well.
    the same can be said for every tablet out there.. they are square and have a screen.. So I guess that means Apple is the only one who can make them that way.. I think not.

  3. Comment - HP: Oracle's halt for Itanium support is "anti-customer"

    2.1 r895 Beta (Aug 18, 2011 - 11:02 PM)

    Christ, two shots in the foot today.. Things are not looking to good for HP in the future... It looks like they are in need of a new COO..

  4. Comment - You bought HP TouchPad, it's discontinued, now what?

    2.1 r895 Beta (Aug 18, 2011 - 10:58 PM)

    It's good news in a strange sort of way. We will be able to get them from the bargain bin now at greatly reduced prices. So it's end of life, They still get the job done.
    In this economy it is no wounder that sales would be sluggish, The Ipad being the first out of the gate sold allot and took up most of the market so to try and compete means a better product and giving it the time needed for word to get out. I would love to have one and don't only because times are tight right now. But it was one of the ones I was looking at for a future buy as I don't buy Apple product..

  5. Comment - Nokia sues Apple again, claiming patent infringement

    2.1 r895 Beta (Mar 30, 2011 - 8:56 AM)

    so i guess it's alright then to use others tech in your stuff without permission. is that what you are saying? Apple stole Nokia's tech, dressed it up in a pretty package and claimed it as their own. Not the first time this has happened. They should be made to pay for the patent infringing business practices.

  6. Comment - Steve Jobs says 'No Interest' in iPhone 4 radiation app, devs release it anyway

    2.1 r895 Beta (Mar 25, 2011 - 2:09 AM)

    there is no valid reason for him to deny such an app. it breaks none of the rules and he has made it an exception when other truly ridiculous apps are aloud by following the same guidelines. he is being selective and acting like a child who doesn't want to share his toys.
