  1. Your great at news and graphics, Nice!

    Help save the Zunes!

    There are several reasons for that actually : - overall smaller form factor due to thinner HD space - faster read/write access - longer lasting/more durable - better shock-proof than a traditional spin up drive etc. Plus, SSD is really the way of the future, essentially. The only sad part is that the space is a bit limiting now, but once that clears out in (imo) 1-2 years....I'm sure we'll be seeing 200+ Gb of solid state drives on the market, most likely also in the future iPods. Unless your a hardcore music junkie, then I would assume 16Gb to be more than enough for music, and a few videos (which includes podcasts). I myself have 3,000 songs, and it barely even scratches the 7Gb limit for music on my (now obsolete by 9 days ) 5.5G 30Gb iPod.
  3. From what I read I believe (from rumors), that the first fully Dx10.1 GPU will be the nVidia G92 series (ie. 9800GTX). However, in terms of performance difference, individuals who have a Dx10 card (ex. 8600GT) will not take a drastic performance hit from the lack of Dx10.1, which was the case from using Dx9 cards to play Dx10 games.
  4. I wonder if Apple checks these forums. It would pretty funny if Leopard were to have some UI that looked exactly like what I designed. I would laugh...more than I would be pissed (if at all). I wonder what it takes to make it to Apple's UI design team. That would be an awesome job, and wonder what the saleries would be like. But still, my main liking is between medicine and graphic design. What most people don't realize is how much Photoshop could actually help in the field of medicine. You can literally perform a plastic surgery in Photoshop before you even touch the patient. My future will (if all goes well) will be medicine (I'm a pre-med university student), and I want to become a plastic surgeon, but my second option is graphic design. I wouldn't mind working at Apple's graphic design team though....that would be awesome. hehe. How many doctors do you know who can harness the power of Photoshop and use it towards the medical field?...what a combo!
  5. Ok, update, it seems to be back now....weird. When I checked, on the side columns...NBC/sports, etc, was not there. Now they seem to be back. Wonder what that was all about. The news is that Apple does not want to wait until the end of this year, and then losing the shows, which essentially leaves the NBC shows hanging half way through. Instead they play to cut from the start itself....and that would mean removing the shows before Sept 1 (i.e today). They should go off soon. This is an excerpt from the release link I posted originally.
  6. But Apple rejected the price increase....which would mean they are not the greedy one....NBC is. Moreover, Apple makes (this was said by Steve Jobs himself) next to nothing from iTunes...the vast majority of the revenue goes to the music labels/production studios. It's simple NBC being $$ hungry, which is wrong when you are already making a heck load of dollars in the millions from the iTMS. There is an old saying that goes you never kick the ladder once you are on top. The same thing applies for NBC (and Universal as well). They will regret it, there is no doubt in that. What other alternative popular all-in-one music service is there? None. It's just too bad NBC's next route of selling (if you can even call it that) will be through BitTorrent. It's inevitable.

    NBC pulling out of iTunes.

    Well, after just a while ago with the whole Universal pulling out of iTunes fiasco, it seems that NBC is following the same path now. It seems that NBC and Apple are unable to come to a mutual agreement regarding pricing, which seems much more of a valid reason (albeit very greedy) than what Universal's excuse was....which was iTunes has a monopoly and is not allowing equal competition from other online music stores, especially when their (Universal's) catalogue was flourishing on the iTunes store. Currently, NBC's offerings go for $1.99 on iTunes (TV shows), and they wanted to double their gain on iTunes by asking Apple to charge users $4.99 per episode. Talk about being greedy, sheesh. Apple, as a result declined this, and has stated that other media companies, such as FOX, The CW, ABC and CBS are quite fine with $1.99 and are on the catalog still. Eddy Cue, who is the VP of iTunes, has stated this in reaction: Nevertless, the NBC aired shows will still be on iTunes up until the end of this year. Full press release @ Apple

  9. Lol, incase you guys never got it.....I did it in Photoshop, it's not real. We can wish though....right? hehe. .
  10. lol, thanks Sabr. I wanted to see how many people would fall for this, hehe.
  11. Meh, I got tired of hitting F1 every time, lol. . Plus I started forgetting the apps, becuase they were in some ways hidden.
  12. Just fooling around with Photoshop. Wanted to create something in between Leopard and Tiger. A little iPhone inspiration also helped. I was going to change the top menubar, and redesign the spotlight menu...but got lazy, procastinated...and then gave up. lol. Then I got an idea...and then went back and re-did them as well. Icons: Ekisho by Jonas + Mac OS X Cats2 by Susumu Wallpaper in Spotlight: Me (search my profile here for Hyperflous) I love working on this, I'll probably update this "ficticious" desktop, probably even well after Leopard gets here, lol. here is the original desktop shot from my MBP: http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/3319/ap...ceptorigoe0.png
  13. Nicely done. I'm guessing most of the time went to arranging them perfectly.

    Bioshock "GOTY"

    I've played the demo on my Macbook Pro...all I can say is....I love Unreal Engine 3. It really does live up to the hype in terms of graphics and physics handeling, and it has excellent scalablity. The graphics in the game are just gorgeous, but that was already known. Ill be purchasing the full game soon.
