Last week, the drivers who shuttle San Francisco Google employees to work voted to unionize with the Teamsters. How long until their passengers do the same thing?
We're so lucky that Russia is doing its part in documenting history through dash cams because we get to see idiots act like idiots every other day. Here we get to see a foolish driver in road rage, who didn't merge into a lane fast enough, 'retaliate' on the car who 'cut him off' by speeding and braking hard. Only the…
Traffic accidents are annoying enough on their own, but they're even worse when they're caused by a complete idiot. This Russian man takes a little initiative by dispensing some righteous road justice. Not to the driver that (almost) caused the mess, but to the driver's cellphone.
So MSL Curiosity has landed. It survived the seven minutes of terror and safely touched down on the surface of Mars. A miracle in its own right. Now that it's there, it needs a way to move around. Anyone who played Lunar Lander and Moon Patrol already knows how they're going to do this: Video games.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has used hidden cameras to prove what everyone already knew: most newbie teen drivers are pretty bad drivers. As their videos show, they are also impossibly obnoxious. No surprise there either. They also like Twilight.
This thing is a monster. Nik Nowak, a DJ hailing from Berlin, outfitted this Japanese mini-dump truck to become a veritable assault vehicle of sound, capable of pumping out 4,000 watts of moving acoustic muscle.
Without satellite navigation to guide them, or even humans behind the wheel, four vans made the 8,000 mile journey from Italy to China. Seven video cameras combined with solar powered laser scanners made the trek, which ended today, possible.
The Magic Trackpad has just shown up and Apple has already issued a driver update for it. The same update also enables inertial scrolling and three-finger dragging on MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops with multi-touch trackpads.
In today's Remainders: the next step. For John Grisham, it's ebooks. For the television-viewing public, it's viewing television while surfing the web. For Google, it's controlling the internet. And for NVIDIA, it's releasing GeForce drivers that don't melt your rig.
Attempting to scroll with two fingers on a Windows laptop trackpad after using a MacBook makes you feel like a right fool, I know. It's not the end of the story though, with Lifehacker revealing two hacks for Windows users.
Device Stage is a set of baked-in icons and menus for printers, cameras, phones, etc. that wait for the moment when you plug something in. Recognition comes fast and smooth—provided the gadget is supported. UPDATE
Though mobile graphics drivers have historically been available only from the laptop manufacturer, Nvidia finally posted their official drivers on their site. Say goodbye to those 3rd-party hacked and often buggy drivers!
Microsoft's Windows chief Steven Sinofsky gave an interview to CNet News, throwing out some tidbits of knowledge on what's to come in Windows 7. Of the few details Steven actually gave out, the most interesting one is that it won't be using MinWin, a tiny Kernel that was supposed to replace the one in Vista. Instead,…
The HTC video driver controversy might be coming to an end, as the promised software fix may or may not be released soon. Why the uncertainty? Because HTC themselves didn't specify whether this update even fixes it, not confirming one way or the other that on it enabling Qualcomm's 2D or 3D graphics support. Actually,…
The story of Daniel_K vs. Creative reaches a temporary conclusion as Creative reinstates the deleted forum posts by Daniel that helped other users get their sound cards working under Vista. The company did this as a result of angry forum and blog posts (some here as well), mostly all siding with Daniel.
Is it reasonable to expect a company to update drivers for a new operating system if an all-in-one printer is only four years old? We'd think so, but HP is having none of this for their Officejet 6110. When Matt asked HP for updated drivers for OS X Leopard, HP told him that printing will still work, but scanning was…
Users have been complaining about HTC's undercooked video drivers for the TyTN II, the touch and the Mogul for a while—only to get various reassurances that everything is OK in response—but HTC's finally released a statement saying that a fix is coming. They say that the video acceleration will be supported in the…
