I've got a minor quibble with this point: "Nothing lets you get your thoughts out of your brain and into words faster and more efficiently than a well made keyboard." I contend that the spoken word actually lets you get your thoughts out of your brain and into words faster and more efficiently. You essentially have a peripheral connected directly to your brain: the mouth. Babies learn to transform their thoughts into words much faster with the spoken word. UX designers have realized the power of the spoken word and brought us Siri. People would still rather call customer support instead of typing out an email. Only in specialized circumstances is the keyboard faster, such as typing out code for a program.

Wow, those numbers. I didn't know that was possible with USB 3.0. Taking a 1.76GB file and transferring it in just under 10 seconds? Phenomenal! I'll have to take a look at one of those Supersonics. Luckily enough for me, my laptop has one USB 3.0 port. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure everything else I have or come across on a daily basis has all USB 2.0 ports, so can't take that awesome speed everywhere. The reviews on Amazon do say that for smaller files, like JPEG photos, the transfer speed is a lot slower, but 30MB/s is still much faster than USB 2.0.

Thanks for informing us about this. Hopefully, nVidia makes this an option on their graphics cards. At least for my card, the nVidia control panel gives you the option to set antialiasing for any program (so when you choose HDR in Oblivion, even if Oblivion disables antialiasing the control panels enables it). Does there have to be support for the technique in the game? Or I could try Mārtiņš suggestion which enables SMAA in any d3d9-11 program.
Hello Darron, I'm interested in developing/porting Qt on my Palm Pre, but I have no idea where to start. Could you post a short guide on how to set up a developer environment, write a "Hello World" app, and compile it for the Pre. I would definitely appreciate it!
