The eFuse is not about bricking the phone or stopping the user from modding (although it probably effectively will do that as a side effect). The eFuse is about motorolla being able to fix a hardware problem with software. Just read the wikipedia entry for eFuse. » 7/15/10 11:07am 7/15/10 11:07am

@Eulatos: Actually, you don't seem to understand the basic principals of liberty. Just because the mob wants it does not mean that the government should force others to give it to them. » 7/01/10 11:05am 7/01/10 11:05am

@The5thElephant: Well in theory a mixture of Red, Green, and Blue should recreate all the colors, but due to the current shortcomings of their LCD and LED tech, they had to make up for it with a fourth color filter. There really are not more than 3 primary colors as far as I know. » 4/12/10 10:33am 4/12/10 10:33am

Paul, Hastings: "Gossips, Backstabbers and Napoleonic Personalities"

Paul, Hastings, Janofsky, and Walker, LLP lost a lawyer yesterday. He won't be returning, either, after his farewell memo. "In fact," he writes, "I dare say that I would rather be dressed up like a pinata and beaten than remain with this group any longer." » 5/28/04 12:31pm 5/28/04 12:31pm

The Revenge of Ms. Poopy Pants

Like Erin O'Brien, the CAA assistant who was fired after her gushy "I work in Hollywood!" story circulated throughout the western world, the story of Ms. Poopy Pants couldn't have spread so far without eager emailers who were willing to spread it. » 5/28/04 11:51am 5/28/04 11:51am

Rules for the LIRR, Memorial Day Weekend

The weather appears to bite ass, but we'll still be bailing the hell out of Manhattan mid-afternoon with the rest of you. (Although, honestly? We might just skip the mad LIRR rush and take in an early showing of Soul Plane, which is sure to be the Citizen Kane of blacksploitation airline industry films. Seriously — … » 5/28/04 9:29am 5/28/04 9:29am

Hate Mail of The Week — Or the Year

The Story of Poopy Pants

We're not naming names, unless the lady herself wants to come forward. We actually think she's a hero — I can't even watch FOX without wanting to crap myself. Can't imagine what would happen to my own bowels if I attended one of their parties. » 5/27/04 1:00pm 5/27/04 1:00pm

Balthazar Revisited

Earlier today, we graphed out the NYT mentions of Balthazar over its seven-year history. But we forgot one important thing — cancelling out the NYT site's search results for alleged actor Balthazar Getty! Doh! As you can see, when Mr. Getty is removed, the resulting graph forms a disturbing face. Surely this has some… » 5/27/04 12:18pm 5/27/04 12:18pm
