I went to check these out at local Sony Store. Horrible construction: There was so much keyboard flex that even if i just typed normally, I could see the keyboard and the surrounding areas move up and down. Bummer… I really wanted this PC
You heard right. Bloomberg is reporting that the United States government (!) just filed court papers in Washington, D.C. to block the much ballyhooed tie-up between AT&T and T-Mobile USA. Oddly enough, T-Mobile and AT&T promised this morning that a total of 5,000 jobs would be hand delivered to the US if the two telcos were allowed to become one, but it’ll take a heck of a lot more convincing now. For what it’s worth, this doesn’t mean that the deal is or isn’t happening — it’s just another step in the process — but it most certainly doesn’t bode well for proponents. Nor for AT&T’s share price.
But while the two British mags disagree about the number of turbos under the M3’s bonnet, the consensus is that power will be increased to 450 horsepower. What’s more, the next M3 mill will boast significantly more torque, up from 295 pound-feet in the current generation to somewhere in the vicinity of 400 lb-ft.
Even with a split personality, the second-gen CLS is superior in almost every way to the original, maybe every way if you prefer its design. And like every trend setter, it’s now surrounded by variations on the theme – some quicker, some sexier and some more serene. Mercedes, however, has successfully kept the CLS their target, and thanks to this wonderful engine, it’s a moving one.
It’s loud, powerful and wears the three-pointed star up front. Sure, that could describe the host of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG cars, but in this case, we’re talking about the latest hotness: the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe. This performance two-door keeps popping up in videos to tantalize our senses, and now,Mercedes has hired a pair of stunt drivers for a trio of new clips that show the sports coupe engaging in fan-approved activities.
So, according to the UC Regents, the only way to close the $1 billion gap was to hike student fees. Again. Pay decreases for everyone but line workers (the professors, janitors, and everyone who actually contributes to keeping the University running, as opposed to staff workers like managers, administration AND REGENT SALARIES) was out of the question. The only choice left was to hike the tuition again because of “budget deficits.”
I’m glad I’ll be graduating from UCI this year. No more tuition hikes or lame excuses from Regents. If anyone ever asks me to recommend a college to them, I’d gladly recommend EVERY SINGLE PRIVATE COLLEGE IN EXISTENCE before I even mention a UC.
Fix your financial aid system, cut back on redundant services and make the UC system more efficient. Regents, your job is to make sure that the university doesn’t degrade. As far as I can tell, all you’ve done is further degrade the reputation of a once proud system into the mud by continually increasing fees for students.
I actually can’t wait for this to come out. Not because I want it, but because I want to see the 3DS get some competition. Sure it’s priced higher, but comparing the specs, I’d say it’s well worth the $249 if they actually did everything right.
During the day, computer screens look good—they’re designed tolook like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn’t be looking at the sun.
F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.
It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.
