  1. Recently I was going to reformat my computer anyhow so I decided to install and try out a bunch of new applications. So I downloaded Chrome and it is really fast, it's very simple and lightweight too, I really like it. I'm wondering though, I heard some rumors that google pretty much steals all of your information while you are using Chrome, is that true? Also, I've finally gone ahead and decided I want to go 100% Firefox, does anyone know of anyway to block IE from ever opening? I'm on XP sp3

  4. Hi there groovemaster, I've been having some trouble connecting my Virtual PC 2007 to the internet. I'm running both Windows XP and Windows Vista virtually, and my host box is running Windows XP. I'm using a wireless usb card [netgear wg111v2] to connect to my router. I even installed the Virtual Machine Network Services driver on my card. I've tried using the Shared Networking [NAT] setting and using the physical drive setting also. Nothing seems to work. The closest I've been able to get with the connection is it told me I had conflicting IP addresses, but I'm not even sure how I got it say that much. Do I have to install wireless drivers onto virtual pc? If so how do I do that? Thanks!
  5. Heya guys, I recently purchased a DVI to HDMI cable during the cyber monday sales. I got my cable from here http://www.eforcity.com/pothhdmid2m1.html for a $3 free shipping deal. And I'm using a HP w2207h monitor. For some reason I'm not getting any video on the screen from my DVI outpout on my video card. My vga works just fine though, infact I don't even have a vga output on the card. I am using a dvi to vga converter as it is. I just have dual dvi outputs. My monitor status infact even shows that it is not connected to anything, even though the cable is plugged in! My monitor has HDMI and VGA in, no DVI in. Maybe thats the reason? Or maybe its just a crap cable... Either way, help is appreciated, because if it's the cables fault I'm gonna RMA it.
  6. Anyone know of a iTunes alternative that will work for iPhones? I don't need app support, just a way to transfer music and other files.
  7. Hey so even with the new update I noticed that you still only have 2 search engines to choose from as your default with Safari. Google Yahoo Any ideas how to switch it to... oh say, Bing?
  8. I'm looking for a cheap but GOOD pair of headphones w/ mic included for the iPod Touch 2g. I haven't purchased the 3.0 software update yet so I can't go bluetooth, but I kind of want a wired connection anyway since its cheaper. I really don't want to spend more than $5, and there are A LOT of them available for under that price. The problem is that I don't know which ones are good and which ones suck. If anyone has any reccomendations, I'm guessing iPhone headsets will work as work just as good with the iPod as they do with the iPhone.
  9. Found this and just wondering if anyone else enjoys geography as much as I do hehe. http://www.flashearth.com/ It lets you explore Earth using multiple sources of mapping data, all controlled through a single interface. One of the things I liked is how you can click a location then go into Planetarium mode, which lets you view what the night sky looks like from that location.
  10. So I was going to purchase a Microsoft Kinect until I read the requirements. According to Microsoft, it needs 6 feet of space to function properly. That is a lot more than you think when you actually bust out the measuring tape. I mean, for most people I think it hits right where their coffee table is. Luckily, my coffee table is sturdy so I can just play standing on it. Here's some typical living rooms... I think the coffee table is going to be a problem, maybe Xbox users will have to trade in their coffee tables? Anyone else see a problem with this?

    Google TV

    Microsoft has been a joke since Bill left. They have no vision or drive, it's just a matter of time till office is completely replaced, then Windows after that.

    Blockbuster bankrupt

    Blockbuster filed bankruptcy - Chapter 11. They did it this morning 9/23/2010. News Release: Here They just can't compete with Netflix and Redbox. Their overhead is too high, and they are currently ?1 billion? dollars in debt. They said they plan to recapitalize and change their business structure, in the mean time they are keeping their stores open as usual while they undergo this company-wide transformation... But stores in Argentina have all just been shut down completely, gone.

    What Games Do You Play Right Now?

    Just playing some homebrew games on the PS3. I also found an interesting one the other day called Minecraft. Right now it is selling like hotcakes (over $250,000 a day in sales @ $10 a copy). I was thinking about trying it. Here's a vid: [flash=640,385]

    Galaxy S with Usenet

    When you said usenet I thought for sure you were talking about something else. I guess you must like your Synology

    Windows losing focus

    There are some viruses that are rare and new enough that they haven't been added to the virus definitions of antivirus software. This is a weird one for sure, I'm still not sure it's a virus but I can't think of anything else that would be causing this.

    iPad killer - soon

    Yeah, Apple had a nice head start but they've already shot themselves in the foot. By being so closed and tyrannical about what SOFTWARE they allow you to run on Apple hardware (that you've paid for with good money!) they've created the "open" monster that is now Android. My suggestion? If you have Apple stock, sell it, quickly. The tab is only the first of many Android tablets to come. The screen size isn't an issue for me, but if it is.. Well Samsung isn't the only one making a tablet. Archos is working on the new Archos 101, which has a 10.1 inch screen! There is also the new LG Optimus tablet coming out that has a 10 inch screen. There's more but I don't feel like tracking them down.

    Wordpress on your phone

    Had me excited for a sec. I've been looking everywhere for a way to edit Wordpress articles on my phone. I have a blog that I write on a lot, but it isn't on wordpress.com so the wordpress app doesn't work. I use an Android - HTC EVO 4g

    Windows 7 Beta

    Is the windows 7 beta stable enough to be worth downloading? Any other comments or concerns?
  21. Anyone know which ones are compatible with Windows 7? I've tried virtual clone drive and magic iso just before release and they didn't work, and I havent tested them again yet. but I'm guessing they still aren't working. A list would be "oh-so-groovy!"
  22. I'm having an interesting problem. My wireless internet broadcasting from my router is just randomly going out. I'm not sure why. Here is what it looks like. You see I have full green bars, either 5/5 or 4/5 and it just won't connect... Sometimes it does though, like right now I'm using it to post this. Any ideas?

    Starcraft II - It's About Damn Time!

    I'm with ya there.. HUUUGE Assassins creed fan here. If you haven't noticed... I do try to be a little subtle about it.
  24. Anyone seen or heard of any good light-weight media players that can play everything WMP11 can? I've found a bunch of different ones but they don't seem to be enough of an improvement over WMP11 to switch, anyone else have any luck?
  25. I was trying to decide whether I should get a fancy new droid x, droid incredible, Evo 4g, iPhone 4, or some other phone. Blackberry has the Storm 2 coming out and there are still a lot of others. I didn't even consider the Samsung but it does have an impressive processor. Here's a chart I found that should help out if you are in the same boat as me. I just wish I didn't have to pay the obligatory (and retarded) $30/ month data plan. Click the image to enlarge it
