Chromium Project uses Timer Resolution to debug battery life issue

Based on the information at it looks as if Timer Resolution has been used to identify and verify an issue with Chromium.

Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome. I use Chrome every day on my work laptop and also no my netbook. I had no idea that Timer Resolution had helped to create such a great browser!


It must be gadget buying season…

iPhone, Wii, EeePC, Tivo

The 10" EeePC1000 is out and about here in Australia. JB Hi-Fi have them for $698 which is a good deal as far as I can tell. I wanted a Dell XPS1330 or a Mac Book. Lately the choice has grown, HP, Toshiba, and Dell with the Studio all offer laptops which look the goods… Now the EeePC1000 is also available.

It is really a shame that the Rudd government to away the tax loophole for laptops.

The Tivo is finally coming to Australia… no ad skip and a fee at a later date to turn on the networking. Why can’t they just make these things easy and not try to squeeze every last cent out of the consumers?
