    Poll: Public Supports NSA Spying On Their Email, Neighbors And Foreign Leaders

    Despite a torrent of outrage from the press, world leaders, and the United States Congress, most Americans still approve of the National Security Agency’s surveillance practices. Most importantly, public opinion barely budged a percentage point since the NSA’s global phone and Internet spy network was first revealed. We even polled whether Americans support the near universally… Read More

  • Poll: Will you buy the new Xbox 360?

  • Poll finds that physical media is dying, HD DVD as popular as Blu-ray

    Blu-ray was declared the winning format last year when HD DVD threw in the towel. This victory came after major studios left the HD DVD camp and joined up with Blu-ray. But just because a victory was celebrated, that doesn’t mean the format is successful. In fact, a recent Harris Interactive poll shows that many purchased an HD DVD player last year and most don’t plan on buying… Read More

  • Poll: Are you buying an iPhone 3G S?

Feel free to sound off in the comments too. {democracy:57} Read More

  • Are you still using Safari 4?

    I just noticed that even after a week I haven’t given up on Safari or even considered going back to Firefox. How has your experience compared? One thing I really enjoy right now is the ability to pull tabs out of the line-up but I could only really like it after I moved the damn tabs under browser bar and off the top. Safari is definitely faster on my Air which has horrible Internet… Read More

  • Poll: Do people actually like 3D movies and games?

    Two new studies, one from the Consumer Electronics Association and the Entertainment and Technology Center at USC and the other from Meant to be Seen (“the foremost authority group on stereoscopic 3D gaming and home entertainment”), suggest that consumers — that is, average people like you and me — dig 3D movies. Wearing glasses to enjoy 3D content is not seen as a… Read More

  • Poll: What's Apple announcing at Macworld 2009

    Despite the big guy not making the coveted keynote himself, the show trudging-on with Apple making its last appearance. So what does Apple have in store for us today or tomorrow?

  • Poll: Are you going to buy The Dark Knight

    I can’t tell you the last DVD/Blu-ray I purchased. It might have been the Matrix years ago, but I’m going to run out and buy The Dark Knight Blu-ray in a few minutes. I don’t know what it is, but I want that disc. Maybe I wanna be in on the best selling title of all time race. Don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing movie, but I don’t have much desire to watch it again. Read More

  • Are you using Gmail themes?

  • Knight Rider poll results and a poll aboutThe Big Bang Theory wall thingie

    Okay, First things first. 74% of the poll takers aren’t fans of the new Knight Rider; not a big surprise. More importantly though, the Big Bang Theory investigation thickens as there wasn’t a clear cut answer about WTF that thing is on the apartment wall. There were two common themes from my question yesterday though: either a some sort of keyboard/piano action or an… Read More

  • Poll results: Most of you would buy an Apple-designed DVR

    The Apple DVR poll’s results have been tallied and it turns out the vast majority of you (62%) would buy an Apple DVR – as long as the price is right. Knowing Apple, its DVR wouldn’t be the cheapest on the market, but it should be one of the most innovative.  FYI, a TiVo HD DVR is $299 and the 1TB edition goes for $599. So what is the right price?

  • Poll: If Apple's next big thing turns out to be a DVR, will you buy it?

    There is murmuring around the Internet watercoolers that Apple’s next product announcement isn’t a new MacBook Pro, but rather some sort of DVR/Apple TV thingie. Supposedly, this product is going to have all the classic DVR ingredients with some iChat video conferencing thrown in probably powered by Apple’s DVR interface patents. The question isn’t what the next… Read More
