When Laptop Batteries Fail

PC Pitstop did a demonstration to show what happens when laptop batteries fail. This was a bit of setup in that they created the situation for the battery to fail, but all of the after-effects were real. I would hope that you wouldn't literally be using it as a laptop when this happens. Thanks HardOCP.

Java GPL'd

I keep looking to see if it's April 1, but apparently it's true. Sun has released Java under the GPL. All of the code will be released by March of next year. I'm very interested to see what the community will do with the code. Kudos to Sun for releasing it all. Thanks Slashdot.

Ars Technica also offers some commentary on the situation.

NFL Week #10

Here are my picks for this weekend's games. In all honesty, I'm just looking ahead to next week's Michigan-Ohio State game. Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Lions, Ravens, Colts, Jaguars, Chiefs, Vikings, Patriots, Broncos, Cowboys, Saints, Rams, Giants, Panthers.

The Master comments: This week's differences: Steelers, Bears.

Installing Another OS on PS3 got some details (from the PS3 manual, no less) on how to install another OS on a PS3. If you read this website regularly, I hope I don't have to explain to you how cool this is. I'm going to be interested in seeing what cool hacks you could use for this or if it would be possible to use a PS3 as a bona fide computer. Thanks Linux Games.
