Hyperbole and a Half Nvidia Optimus unveiled: Switchable laptop graphics on the fly | Some ideas are so obvious that when announced, one's first reaction is to ask, "Wait, weren't we already doing it that way?" Such is the case with laptops featuring both integrated and discrete graphics processors, and Nvidia's new system for juggling them, called Optimus. Common sense dictates that laptops with both a discrete GPU and standard integrated graphics should be able to switch between the two at will. After all, why waste battery life powering a GeForce card when you're just surfing the Web or sending an e-mail? Many laptops currently offer this option, commonly called switchable graphics , including select MacBook Pro models and systems from Asus, Sony, and others. Unfortunately, until now, this required one to manually flip a switch to turn the discrete GPU off or on. Some laptops label the two modes with unclear names such as "high performance" or "better battery life," which doesn't really spell out exactly what you're doing when you activate the mode.

Online Flash Slideshow Creator Howto: Use rtorrent like a pro « Motho ke motho ka botho diggI’m a huge rtorrent fan. I can’t imagine why anyone would use anything else, unless there’s something funky the big-name programs can do, that rtorrent just doesn’t handle yet. This time, instead of introducing you to rtorrent nice and easy, like I did with cplay, I’m going to give you a brief tour, and then I’ll show you something very cool you can do with it. rtorrent is an amazing, complex, powerful program that is at the same time sleek, clean, comprehensive and ultralight — and I’m giving you just one small idea of its potential. But first, let’s scratch the surface. Like a lot of console-driven programs, the startup screen for rtorrent is … rather dry. That’s all you get. To add a torrent, press return and navigate to the torrent file. You can use tab completion to make your way to it. Note that it’s still labeled as “INACTIVE.” rtorrent won’t start downloading until you tell it to. Now we’re moving. That’s about it, in a nutshell. What’s that mean, you say? Like this:

TasteKid | Find similar music, movies, books Maybe Steve Jobs was right about Adobe Last week, after reading about Steve Jobs' stinging criticism of Adobe, I wrote a spirited defense of Adobe Flash in my DaniWeb blog. I'm here today to say I was wrong. I should probably have known better than to challenge the wisdom of Sir Steve, but after getting comments from several knowledgeable people and reading some follow-up posts, I'm convinced that Flash is dying a slow death and HTML 5 and other technologies could finally drive a stake through its heart. The original comment from Jobs about Adobe being lazy and uncreative around Flash seemed overly harsh to me and not completely accurate--at least from some of the ways I've seen Adobe use the Flash platform, such as Adobe AIR for instance. But a post on The Unofficial Apple Weblog, a publication I have a great deal of respect for, made me rethink my position once and for all.

Edit Pad - Online Text Editor SYSLINUX - Syslinux Wiki SYSLINUX is a boot loader for the Linux operating system which runs on an MS-DOS/Windows FAT filesystem. It is intended to simplify first-time installation of Linux, and for creation of rescue and other special purpose boot disks. When properly configured, SYSLINUX can be used to completely eliminate the need for distribution of raw boot floppy images. A SYSLINUX floppy can be manipulated using standard MS-DOS (or any OS capable of accessing an MS-DOS filesystem) tools once it has been created. These are the options common to all versions of the SYSLINUX installer: (Note: The following command line options are valid for older versions of SYSLINUX. -s Safe, slow, stupid: uses simpler code that boots better. These are only available in the Windows version: -m MBR: install a bootable MBR sector to the beginning of the drive. This can only be used in the linux version:Since version 4.00: -t Specifies the byte offset of the filesystem image in the file. For older versions (deprecated): Syntax: or:

Two isn't enough, four is one more than necessary. Your new ISP? Google launches 1Gbps fiber-to-the-home trial People have wondered for years what Google might be up to with all that dark fiber it had bought up around the country. Now, we may have an answer: delivery of open-access, fiber-to-the-home Internet service at speeds of 1Gbps. That's right: 1Gbps. Google has just announced a trial run of its new scheme, and it's asking city, county, or state officials to let it know if they're interested in a pilot project. In its initial phase, the fiber optic network will serve anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000 people. As for the speeds, they make cable's DOCSIS 3.0 and Verizon's FiOS look like also-rans. The goal is to use the system as a high-speed testbed for next generation apps and deployment techniques. Perhaps the best part of the announcement was the "open access" bit. It's hard to know how far the company plans to take this. Google stresses that this is an experiment, and it may simply be used as a proof-of-concept and a data-gathering project.

Getting started with Adobe AIR for Android by Brian Rinaldi Mobile development is sexy — there's no denying that. But for someone like me, who generally focuses on back-end development or behind-the-firewall Flex applications, building a mobile application sounds intimidating. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but I also know I am not alone. However, with new Adobe AIR for Android (currently in developer prerelease on Adobe Labs) and the Adobe Flash IDE, mobile development for Google's new Android 2.2 operating system (code-named Froyo) couldn't be easier. In this article, I discuss the essential tools you need to start developing for AIR for Android using Adobe Flash Professional CS5. Setting up your development environment Getting set up to develop Android applications with Flash is pretty straightforward. Google Android SDK: The SDK contains the tools you need to develop for Android regardless of whether you are doing native applications in Java or AIR for Android applications in Flash. To get started: Unzip the Android SDK. stop();
