The Best Doctor Who Episodes For Newbies! The ThinkPad That Nearly Cost Me My Job! Did Dropbox Lie About Employee Access To Your Files? The PlayStation Network is back. VoIP for the iPhone, moving your VPN to the router. The Dr. Who Viewer's Guide, can we find a $600 gaming notebook? Netflix: losing some Criterion titles but getting a ton of Miramax movies!
Christopher Soghoian says Dropbox employes are on the honor system when it comes to note looking at your files. We're still using Dropbox! Wired has a great explanation of the complaint to the FTC.Bing is bringing Facebook to search. Apple's launching something big? Some Criterion films are leaving Netflix, but a whole bunch of Miramax titles will hit Netflix this month! Sony says sorry about the PSN outage. How about some free games through the Customer Appreciation Program?
Is the ThinkPad X1 a MacBook Air killer? Maybe, if you want Windows 7, Gorilla Glass and a good keyboard... but we've got some news on the X1's battery life! (And it wasn't just Patrick...Laptop Mag got similar results in their review!)
Anthony's figured out a great way to access video services that aren't available in China: using StrongVPN as a secure proxy into the US. (Oh, we're so gonna use this to watch Canadian curling!) Now he's looking for VPN in a router so he can get his PS3 working, too. We've got ideas! (BTW, here's theÊDD-WRT supported devices list!)
You've probably heard the phrase Never Judge a Book By It's Cover, but one man, John Dax, figured out that it's actually a lot of fun. His website, JudgingABookByItsCover.com, picks a new book every week or so, and then John writes a synopsis of the book based completely on the cover! It's our Website We Can't Get Enough Of this week!
Charging an iPad from the power socket in a car is easy: you just need a 2A charger (We reccomend a few in the video.) Charging the iPad from the USB socket that works with your car stereo... that's harder. We're gonna test out the CableJive dockStubz Pass-Through and Charging Adapter in the next few weeks to find out!
Bob has a heads up for Tekzilla viewers curious about Sprint 4G coverage: Try checking Clear WiMAX coverage map instead!
What FUBAR means to me.
Eric says, "I've been wanting to watch every single episode of Doctor Who (yes, i know it's a lot). Including the spin-offs and movies. In what order do i watch all these? Are there any episode I must watch? Any suggestions?" Oh, boy, did Roger and Serafina get detailed here!
