Streaming Video on PS3 Slim Stutters and is Jerky

2 years ago I made a post about how video streaming on my original 60GB PS3 was stuttering and jerky. Years of comments, comparisons, 131 replies and the “PS3 Slim” later and it seems the problem has boiled down to: Jerky video playback on the original “fat” PS3s can, in most cases, be fixed by […]

Previously we’ve written about the new DRM that Ubisoft has developed in-house that requires a 24/7, uninterrupted internet connection (not even for a modem reboot or lost sync) to the master Ubisoft DRM servers.

It sure seems that Google/HTC’s Nexus One was intended to be the end-all-be-all phone to save the universe from evil, but so far all it’s managed to do is come up short in multi-touch performance/bugs, poor 3G signal connectivity and to top it all off, HTC’s unimpressive customer support. Now added to that list is […]

Many Original PS3s Are Broken – Thought to be a Leap-Year Date Bug

Update #2: It appears that turning on your original “fat” PS3 can cause the data to become corrupted and potentially loose trophies or at least it appears you have lost trophies.

Update #5: Slashdot poster jtownatjunk.net made an interesting point in this comment, stating that cell phones are designed to constantly search for and lock into the strongest signal, not the fastest signal.
