VMware Fusion for $40 Commented on: 6 years ago (April 11, 2008) daveinla ... Thanks for the comprehensive post. I spelled out XP as the default option there because it performs dramatically better in virtual machines than does Vista. (I actually do use Vista,...
Blockbuster eyes streaming to TVs Commented on: 6 years ago (April 11, 2008) Hmm. I just got a new Blockbuster email coupon, so I'm not sure they're canceling them. I'm on the two movies at a time plan, so I do get two free movies (or three, with a coupon) every time I visit...
