    NFL Playoffs

    Well, my Bengals look like poop tonight, but at least they're in the playoffs, probably playing at home next week against these same Jets. I'm thinking it's the Vikings and Colts in the Super Bowl though.

    NFL Playoffs

    Fox Soccer is going HD you know? I just wonder how long it will take for DirecTV to offer it. After that, I need Setanta in HD.

    NFL Playoffs

    Hah...Jacksonville could be on the move soon, would that help you? I do know how it's hard to follow "local" sports though. TV coverage makes it easier however. I watch every Arsenal game (soccer you know?)....only they don't come in HD yet. That part is the worst.
  5. This is pretty cool. NatGeo is offering every edition ever published in digital form on an external 160GB drive. I'd say the $199 asking price is actually not bad considering. More info at the NatGeo Store - http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/pro...0-gb-hard-drive

    Shuttle XPC NAS

    The NE link didn't work for me, is this what you're looking at? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812224002 If so, I would think that would do the trick for you.

    OCZ Vertex 2 Pro Preview

    Well , they're not rally going for enterprise with this, but the progression is nice to see, specially from someone other than the name brands. Should make for a nice user-upgrade drive of for those building their own machines.
  9. Normally these IP lawsuits are about as exciting as watching paint dry. Trying to define who owns what, even when things are patteneted is not even close to clear-cut law. Seagate is being sued by Convolve for stealing their HDD technology. Convolve is also after Dell, Western Digital and others too. But the Seagate case got interesting last week when a former employee came forward and dropped this litlle bomb on the court: Hard to prove, since the evidence was allegedly destroyed, but is it that hard to believe? Eh, who knows. Fun reading at NYT - http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/29/technolo...agate.html?_r=3
  10. I work 85% on a notebook, and of that time, 70% is with an external display. There are times when it fluctuates, but I prefer a tiny notebook for travel, so I *need* a larger display when in the office. But I know a bunch of people that use a notebook without external monitor all the time.
  11. I checked with a friend in the notebook space, he says the only 4:3 to be released recently was a ruggedized unit. Unfortunately the earlier advice of an older Thinkpad is probably your best bet.
  12. It's a Korea only launch for now, and is a pretty standard USB drive that comes in 1, 1.5, and 2TB sizes. People seem excited though that it's "stylish" and comes in white or black. I guess I just don't see it... http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/news_detai...s_en+(AKIBA+EN)
  13. Widescreens became popular due to cost and user acceptance of widescreen being "better." I've been told several times by those in the business that cutting widescreen panels out of the glass is more efficient use of the glass than the 4:3 and therefor cheaper.
