Laptop Screens – Glossy versus Matte

Posted by eGZact on April 30, 2008

The discussions between glossy and matte laptop screens are almost as heated as Apple versus Microsoft and XBox versus PlayStation. Many people considering purchasing a laptop are frustrated by the matter. 

Glossy screens have a reflective coating underneath the screen. This reflective nature gives higher degrees of brightness and contrast. Colors really seem to “pop” with glossy screens. However, due to their reflective nature, the view on a glossy screen will frequently be polluted by glare from other light sources. 

With matte screens the user can almost visualize darkness between individual white pixels. To many people they perceive this as a “grainy” appearance. Glare is greatly decreased, at the cost of reduction in contrast and brightness. Subtle degrees of saturation are better perceived with the matte screens. 

For some people the higher brightness and contrast of the glossy screen actually causes eye strain. Other people find that the lower, diffusing contrast with a matte screen is more likely to cause issues. Improving backlight technology is balancing out the brightness and contrast issues on both sides of the argument. 

Complicating the issue more is that fact that some manufacturers are using glossy displays to hide cheaper LCDs. In the right conditions, glossy displays hide many, but not all, weaknesses in substandard LCD screens. This is why many inexpensive laptops now come standard with glossy screens. 

In a dark, glare-free room, the glossy screen will look better than the matte screen. However, most people do not always use laptops in ideal conditions. Fingerprints and smudges also show up on glossy screens more than matte.

My first laptop had a matte screen. Back then I am not sure I knew I had an option. For my second lappie, I purchased the glossy screen because the images and video in the demo room looked the best. However, after day-to-day use, I eventually decided that matte was best for me. 

I use my laptop everywhere. Frequently this includes bright lighting conditions that cause high glare situations. With my matte screen glare is never an issue. Do glossy screens look better? In perfect conditions they do indeed. However, matte screens offer me much more flexibility. Plus, with my glossy screen I was constantly having to clean it to remove fingerprints and smudges. With the matte they are barely noticeable. 

Obviously in the end it is a personal choice. Hopefully this article has helped to express the arguments on both sides. 

Good luck with your laptop purchase.

Jewish Divorce

Posted by eGZact on April 25, 2008

 

A Jewish woman says to her mother: ” I’m divorcing Sheldon, all he wants is anal sex and my asshole is now the size of a 50 cent piece when it used to be the size of a 5 cent piece.”

Jewish Mother says: “You are married to a multi-millionaire businessman, you live in an 8 bedroom mansion, you drive a Ferrari, you get $2000 a week allowance, you take 6 vacations a year and you want to throw all that away for 45 cents?

Japanese Rice Art

Posted by eGZact on April 25, 2008

 

The residents of Inakadate have been drawing pictures with rice since 1993.  Each year farmers in the town of Inakadatein Aomori prefecture create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed tsugaru-roman variety.

Views of Mount Fuji

This year’s creation — a pair of grassy reproductions of famous woodblock prints from Hokusai’s 36 Views of Mount Fuji — has begun to appear and will be visible until the rice is harvested in September.

While Inakadate is Japan’s most famous rice paddy decorating town, there practice is spreading further ‘afield.’

Larry’s tattoo

Posted by eGZact on April 24, 2008

Larry gets home late one night and his wife, Linda, says, “Where in the hell have you been?”
Larry replies, “I was out getting a tattoo.”

“A tattoo?” she frowned. “What kind of tattoo did you get?”
“I got a hundred Euro note on my privates,” he said proudly.
“What the hell were you thinking?” she said, shaking her head in disdain. “Why on earth would an accountant get a hundred Euro note tattooed on his privates?”
“Well, for one…I like to watch my money grow. Two…once in a while I like to play with my money. Three…I like how money feels in my hand. And, lastly…instead of you going out wasting money on shopping, you can stay right here at home and blow 100 Euro anytime you want.”

Larry is recovering nicely in hospital

Death to America | Positively Priceless!!!

Posted by eGZact on April 23, 2008

Read the following explanation before looking at the picture! 

Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English. So, how do a group of Syrian protest leaders create the most impact with their signs by having the standard “Death To Americans” (etc.) slogans printed in English?

Answer: They simply hire an English-speaking civilian to translate and write their statements into English.

Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the “civilian” insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Army Sergeant! Obviously, pictures of this protest rally never made their way to Arab TV networks, but the results were PRICELESS!

Wi-Fi tools

Posted by eGZact on April 23, 2008

I was browsing through Yahoo Widgets and I’ve found a nice wi-fi tool provided by Xirrus. It is called Wi-Fi Monitor Widget and provides access to information about all available Wi-Fi networks and your current Wi-Fi connections. You can download it from: http://widgets.yahoo.com/widgets/xirrus-wifi-monitor 

I’ve seen that they also have a Vista Gadget pretty much the same with the Yahoo Widget called Wi-Fi Monitor Gadget available on Live Gallery

Updated Web Browsers: Which One Works Best?

Posted by eGZact on April 21, 2008

Apple’s Safari, Mozilla’s Firefox 3, and Micorosoft’s Internet Explorer 8 duke it out to be the program you use most on your PC.

Back when the earliest programs for viewing Web content simply browsed flat pages of images and text, the name browser truly fit the software.

But yesterday’s amateur pages have evolved into dynamic, content-rich portals and powerful online programs. For many online habitués, the do-it-all browser has become a PC’s single most important program.

Recognizing that fact, Apple’s Safari, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, and Mozilla’s Firefox are battling to win the nod as your browser of choice. So which one should you use–Safari 3.1, Firefox 3, or Internet Explorer 8?

Apple’s latest offering, Safari 3.1, preserves the company’s signature focus on clean design and smooth usability, but it lacks any phishing or malware filters.

For its part, Mozilla should have applied the finishing touches to Firefox 3 by the time you read this (I tested the feature-complete beta 5 release). From under-the-hood memory improvements to a major reworking for bookmarks, version 3 represents a big step forward.

Whereas the new Firefox and Safari browsers are ready to roll, Microsoft’s early beta of Internet Explorer 8 remains a work in progress. Bugs and rough edges are to be expected in a first beta intended for developers and testers. But IE 8 beta 1 provides a glimpse of new features such as WebSlices (which let sites create widgety snippets of information that you can view by clicking a bookmark button) and Activities (which add right-click menu options for looking up selected text and pages on map, translation and other sites) that will distinguish the browser Microsoft eventually releases.

Firefox, IE, and Safari are the three most popular browsers, according to Internet usage statistics, but they aren’t the only ones available. So I also took a separate look at two worthwhile, free programs–Flock and Opera.

Lesbian Needs

Posted by eGZact on April 8, 2008

Erin let her hand roam over Vanna’s tight ass as the two lesbian lovers kissed passionately underneath the stinging rays of their morning shower!!! The two women couldn’t have been more different, with Erin tall and lean with almost a dancer’s body, perfect 36B cup breasts and short blonde hair that framed her beautiful face, while Vanna was much shorter, and not quite fat, she certainly was on the chubby side with her 38DD breasts and wide plump bottom coupled with a nice round tummy that capped her wildly hairy dark brunette vagina!!! Both girls appreciated the others attributes as Erin would have killed for Vanna’s big chest, while on the other hand just once Vanna would like to slip into a perfect size six dress instead of her usual size twelve!!! As the intensity of their kiss grew, automatically each one slipped a finger into the others vagina and quickly frigged her to a stunning orgasm, leaving them both shaken and satiated before leaving for work!!! After leaving the apartment building arm in arm, they gave each other a quick peck on the cheek, and then went off in opposite directions on there way to work!!!

Erin sat quietly on the bus reading the morning paper, but try as she might she couldn’t keep her mind on her reading as a gnawing ache which had been slowly building for weeks bubbled to the surface, dampening her vagina and flushing her Read the rest of this entry »
