DVR, Once TV’s Mortal Foe, Helps Ratings

without comments

Against almost every expectation, nearly half of all people watching delayed shows are still slouching on their couches watching messages about movies, cars and beer.

Are people actually watching the commercials? Or just using the break to chat with friends, grab a snack, and run to the bathroom?

The easy single-handed operation of the iPhone is not one of its obvious selling points but is one of those little features that grows on you and becomes nearly indispensable.

I am in total agreement.

Not sure if it would increase risk of repetitive stress injuries, but it would certainly make precision mousing easier. [Link]

We really appreciate the review, but it’s a little weird seeing our Windows Media Center profile on a Mac site.

Price is important, but any breakthrough next-gen set top box will need to run a real web browser.

Hope the multi-touch mouse rumor is true. Can’t stand constantly cleaning the scroll ball in the current Mighty Mouse.

Love the slide-finger-up-to-uppercase shortcut. Wish Apple would let developers enhance the iPhone keyboard.

without comments

Not mentioned in the review, but my favorite new feature in Windows 7 Media Center: using the channel up/down buttons to skip forward (by 30 seconds) and back (by 8 seconds) when watching DVDs.
