Naval Ravikant is an example of the new face of dotcom startups. He sees the method of nurturing startup ideas with venture capital cash as less of a bank and more like a movie studio. Ravikant runs a tight ship, with hard deadlines. "The engineers have the freedom to experiment, but they have 90 days to ship a product," he says. "The product has to grow organically, without any marketing." Those that are still growing on their own 12 months later get to live. They also receive more funding, and Ravikant plugs them into a distribution network he's building. Web products that... Read more...
EMI Music announced DRM-free music downloads through Apple's iTunes earlier this week. They mentioned "premium" music files, with a bitrate of 256 kbps, instead of the standard 128 kbps, for thirty cents more. Slate answers the question: So what? Listeners don't need all the data on a CD, since much of it is imperceptible to the human ear. Sound compression takes advantage of this fact by removing all that extra information. For starters, codecs throw out frequencies outside the range of human hearing - roughly 20Hz to... Read more...

Ease into the morning HH style here and milk that cup of jo a little bit longer.  First, maybe some light calisthenics for your brain with ol' Sully ought to get the blood flowing.  Then you can  peruse Sean's evaluation of Alienware's performance notebook that is actually more like carrying around a double sausage pizza versus most of the boat-anchor designs out there.  Of course there's ICE's post in our "who is everyone really?" forum thread.  Nice burnt orange lazy boy there ICE and what's that on the counter bro?  Pass it... You're OK for dude ICE, but... Read more...
The staff at Widescreengamer.com is discussing something that would drive me absolutely insane. It seems that Dell's 2005FPW is exhibiting some sort of screen burn in some usage scenarios. Luckily, the problem doesn't seem to be permanent. "WidescreenGamer.com is discussing something that is becoming a nuissance for owners of the popular Dell 2005FPW widescreen monitor: Image 'Screen Burn' after prolonged periods of use. It's actually not really 'screen burn' at all, and you'll be relieved once you read what we have to say about this phenomenon."... Read more...
Hey folks, We've got some news for you to digest on your lunch break :) HTPC news has sent us an article regarding bugs with the GeForce 6xxx series cards and using them as a HTPC(Home Theater Personal Computer).

  It used to be the case that the fastest optical drive was, by default, the best. Reducing CD burn times from 12 minutes to eight and then to six was considered significant evolutionary progress. But then a barrier was encountered, where the imperfect nature of mass-produced compact discs precluded, or at least made it much more difficult, to spin them faster than 52x. Rather than risk spontaneously disintegrating media, drive manufacturers have since focused their attention elsewhere. After all, we'd tend to agree that a polycarbonate saucer spinning in excess of 10,000 rotations per minute... Read more...
My head feels like a brick. My head feels like it got hit by a brick. In other words, being sick sucks. I need more sleep, so I'll keep this short... MSI DR16-B Dual-Layer DVD Burner Review @ PCSTATS "Conventional recordable DVD media stores data on a single 4.7GB plane (level) of the disc.

Good morning HotHardware fans!  How's everybody doing today? I hope you're all doing well. I, myself, am walking around in a fog. I've been benchmarking like a fiend for the past week or so, and yesterday was the first day in a while that I didn't have to run any numbers. It was weird, I think I'm went through some form of withdrawal! And to top it off, I went to bed WAAAY to early last night, and slept too much.  I think my brain hasn't switched on yet. Oh well, it's nothing some coffee and reading a few tech articles can't fix...  Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 & ATi Silencer... Read more...
