Do you have a preorder in? Just curious...
I do and I finally got an email from Sony saying "Your PS4 System will be arriving on or about 11/15"! Hopefully their 'about' isn't weeks later. I'm guessing they'll send another email once it actually ships.

If you have an iOS device, you can use this Logitech app for free:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touch-mouse/id338237450

Works pretty well. I was able to play Scrolls and a few other turn based games when my daughter was a newborn and using me for a bed. Perfectly fine for navigating, browsing and loading up videos.
Cool! I was actually just talking about remote desktop apps like LogMeIn to play media and such from my PC, but that's good too!

HDMI cables are great.. IF you have your PC right next to your TV. Those of us that don't live at home with our parents and have our own places, usually don't put our computers right next to our televisions.
You can get long HDMI cables for pretty cheap nowadays. I plan to run one from my computer through the wall and/or ceiling over to my TV. Then I can use my phone or tablet to wirelessly control my PC to play anything I want.

Huh, battery life has been even better for me over the previous phone. Glad I didn't get one with the battery issues.

OK, now I'm pretty sure this is gonna crash and burn. Mark my words.

I just hope the single-player campaign is good.. They're adding all this stuff but a lot may not apply to SP.

What the heck? Didn't they just hit $23mil less than a week ago?! They must have put all this money in some bank account and are earning interest on it..

The new stretch goal this unlocked is a public transportation system, and they outline what happens if (when?) their fundraiser hits the $26 million mark:
Yeah, when is more like it! At this rate they'll pass $30mil. Do they have a funding deadline?

+1 and btw, 4g/LTE/whatever is still utterly limited to 80 to 150 mbps per tower. Each tower could serve thousands. 150mbps/1000/8 = 0.01875 megabyte per second, iows, 19,2 kilobytes per second, that's well, less than 3 times faster than dialup LOLLL. And that's a best case scenario without overhead, with overhead, it's a total joke. I'd hardly call that broadband.
Wow, I get most of the bandwidth from the tower near my place then because I get around 70mbps.. Which is good because there is no cable, DSL, or fiber there.

Wow, all the hate?
Yeah, I don't understand it either. I guess some people only like games with a lot of action. While I do too, I enjoy the laid back puzzle games as well. I played Myst I-IV and have V but haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

Why are you burnt out on crowd funding? I'm pretty happy with the few Kickstarted products I supported and it looks like the crowdfunded projects give much more consideration to what their customers say.
Agreed.

I don't agree with Cutter though because crowd-funding is still going strong. Maybe not with all projects, but when there is something people want the funding really goes up fast.

Meanwhile Obama's approval is down to a record low of 37%, even lower than Bush's rating at this point in his presidency. When Bush finally reached it after 6 years the liberal dominated media celebrated. Now it's not even being reported by those same hypocrites.

Of course it isn't, too busy still blaming the majority controlled GOP congress for everything. The GOP created Obamacare too doncha know.

You have to remember, Obama is innocent in all this, I mean throwing temper tantrums and demanding the other side always give you everything you want, yet still call it "compromising" is so acceptable for someone who's President of the United States.

No all the worlds woes are because of the GOP, or Bush. The majority liberal media and all the brainwashed school children of the last 20 years say so.
Well said. They all just need to be let go.

Pretty cool stuff! I wonder if the single-player campaign will include the same ships that are in MP though..

Their shit is outdated (resolutions, performance, form factor), but they're consistent, and people can keep using the apps they love, across every (current) device.
Hmm, I know this is off topic but I don't see how those things make it outdated. Sure, the resolution isn't as high as some Android devices, but the screen is smaller too. Performance-wise the new A7 chip is certainly not outdated. As for the form factor, that's more personal preference than anything else.

I do agree that a larger screen would be nice and the OS could use more work though. Even with the iOS7 changes, it's really the only thing that feels outdated to me.

Had they kept the original design, I think it would have been a much more pronounced difference. But now that they've rolled everything back, there's a not a lot of differences between the two, outside of exclusives.
..and the Kinect and price difference. That's the main thing I don't like. I can understand them wanting to include it with every Xbox so everyone has it, but I'm just not interested.

Speaking of curved screens, this would be pretty sweet. This is a concept from 2011 so I'm surprised there's still nothing like it around..
