OK, I've just spent a good few hours gaming on the Alienware m9750 system and to say that I'm impressed by the performance of this notebook is a massive understatement. If you want portable gaming, this is the system for you.

A few days ago I took delivery of an Alienware notebook for review (which, unfortunately - for me - has to go back in a few weeks ...). That means the start of a new series of posts - "My Alienware Experience."
Amarok for Linux. If then you decide to buy from the iTunes store, you're making the hope of a divorce from iTunes all the more remote. Sure, you can burn music to a CD and then re-import that into another format, but once you bought a specific amount of music and you've attained a specific critical mass of audio (and CDs to burn), you're just not going to do it because it's too much of a hassle and you lose important information such as track name, album name and so on.
Tomorrow sees the iPhone being unleashed on British and German markets four months after its US debut. It'll be interesting to see how it's received.

I know that it might not seem like it at times, but I'm a big Ubuntu fan. I haven't fully figured out how and where it fits into my computing ecosystem yet, but I know that it does have a place there.

In the TalkBack section of my previous post on Leopard and Vista, bahamude came up with great idea for a poll. Being a sucker for polls, I decided to run with the idea!
When Vista was released the chorus of complaints and criticisms quickly grew from a low hum to a near deafening roar. A little more than a week since Apple released Leopard and that low hum of discontent has already been amplified to the point where it's starting to hurt my ears.
In this blog I've highlighted a number of Vista related bugs, some of which are trivial, others pretty serious, but today I've come across a bug in Leopard that beats anything Microsoft has to offer in Vista hands down - this bug is serious because it causes widespread data loss, and it's easy to replicate.
