I'm with continuum on this. A smaller ssd plus a decently fast data drive is the way to go. I currently have all my steam files on their own HD (well, I used to... now their on their own partition on the same drive as the media files since the steam drive died.), and it works out great.
Anyone seen/heard/used cloudfoundry before? Its a PaaS from vmware that is also open source, and is a pretty good product for being less than a month old. I have it running on two vps's at the moment serving up quite a few domains. And it does a decent job as well, no hassle for me to push my rails or node project up to the cloud, including parody projects (have a 76LOC proxy that does a regex on another site before returning it. Twas fun to write). When they get php support integrated I'm planning on moving all my vps's to it, since it will make my life oh so much easier.
I do really like fords SYNC stuff, but their recent reboot issues make me a little wary. If there is a computer in my car, it should not crash at all, and if it DOES, it should either come back up immediately OR load into a failsafe system.
My desktop has a 5850 In it, while my T400 has the 3470 and intel 4500 in it. The mini has some random nVidia Card in it, and the old Asus C90s has a 8600m GT in it. And right now I'm on the ATI side of the fence, the nvidia 8/9 series has left a bad taste in my mouth for now.
The link isn't loading for me, but whatever. Heh, I don't really doubt the iPad has sold that much, I have one somewhere myself. I pretty much use it purely for a web/irc device, and it works good for that.
As of this second palm is... stalled in regards to growth. Everyone knows that, and palm admits it. But we do know that thats going to change. Soon. The Veer is going to be out soon which will be the first device with the full backing of HP's marketing division, and after that the pre3 and the touchpad are due for release. But all of that is piddles compared to another market HP has said they are moving webos to. Which is their computers. Sometime this year HP is going to ship webos on every computer they ship. Hows that for scale.
Ouch. I will say this, the two times I had to use applecare they were fantastic. Way back when I had an iBook G3 that had a faulty logic board setup and the first time it died was a week before a vacation to hawaii. Two days before I left it was back in my hands, which was pretty amazing considering average turnaround was 2 weeks.
I swear this logitech bluetooth kb can detect when I leave my desk. Every time I get up it beeps and when I walk back to my desk. Anywho, would much rather have a webcam watch and logout if it didn't see a face for 30 seconds.
