News Comments > Valve Confirms New Engine?

Maybe this is the reason HL3 is taking so long?! They needed a new engine to do the awesome new game-play they thought up?!

I could always hope...

I voted Ned Land, we need a good harpoonists to get this country back on course!


Although, he is Canadian, so that might have been a waste of a vote in retrospect.

Actually, there are some other things besides the new interface.

On the background, Windows now has Kernal timing clock cycle savings ability linux had like 10 years ago (or something) and Mac has since 2007.

It also has some memory saving features, that again, Linux had for a while now.

So it is significantly more efficient on memory and power.
For a super computer, you will not notice it; and yes it does benefit tablets more then anything; but it does help out regular laptops as well. And in general, making anything more efficient is good!

There are a lot of other behind the scene features upgraded, that other OSs have had for a while now. Again, they do not make a major different on powerful PCs; but, again, efficiency is better!

It is a substantial improvement in the OS, that will not actually have any tangible benefits for a lot of people.

Yes, I love my NetFlix account.

There is a lot of stuff on streaming I watch; but it is not by any means everything. I also do the 1 DVD out at a time for modern movies.

It is really just the other companies. They all want to compete with NetFlix on streaming content, so make it prohibitively expensive for NetFlix to do streaming; meanwhile they do not yet have their service available.

And I am not sure why CEOs of 100 different media companies thinks it is a good idea to have 100 different sources for streaming content...

More then one is good for the consumer, but too many is just silly.

Population density of South Korea: 503 pop/km^2
Population density of the US: 34 pop/km^2

This is not an acceptable excuse.

But it is. Just like it is why, in general, public transportation is no useful in the US except for a few cities, where it is very useful in other countries.


Ireland, according to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quality-of-life_index), is at the top of the quality of life index for 2005 data. Much higher then the US or South Korea.

Where is there population density is 65pop/km^2 (wikipedia again), and they have a broad band internet access penetration rate of ~30% (http://www.comreg.ie/_fileupload/publications/ComReg09101.pdf)


Population density is really the only major significant difference in which sets highly developed countries apart.

And it plays a critical role in everything, from transportation, energy, cost, technology, etc.

I.E. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e7/Ch3e3d.png broadband internet access is readily available to those that live in the larger population density. But it is really easy to skew averages down.

What are the odds that the deli you (the general you) go to in New York makes its own Pastrami?

I would suspect now that most places just purchase their Pastrami from some distributor; and there is nothing special about most of Pastrami in New York delis.

I'll ask the next time I'm there. I'm guessing you're wrong, but I can't say for sure.

I hope I am! Trying local varieties of stuff is just awesome. Variety is king.

I am sure there has to be some that make their own, and some that do the whole distributor thing.

You should indulge and visit as many delis as you can, and get their pastrami and ask them and compare, etc! See, research is cool!

Yeah something about a tub of cream cheese spread across a mountain fatty meat high in cholesterol just says unhealthy to me. I understand the point your making about food though. But when another choice may be turkey and mustard, pastrami and cream cheese is the unhealthier of the two, no?


Cholesterol. You need it to live. Eating cholesterol is good for your health! Eating too much is bad.

And no, just because it has less fat and calories does not make the turkey and mustard more healthier. It just means you can eat more of it to get the same calorie intake; that is all.



Of course, this is assuming one or the other is not poisoned, or contains some toxic substance, etc.

Every now and then I go to a deli around here and order what is probably the least healthy sandwich on the menu...
The New York New York: A giant grilled pastrami, chive cream cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mayo on focaccia.

It's heavenly.

There is nothing unhealthy about that.

Eating food is healthy. Not eating food is unhealthy.

You need fat and protein to live. You need various vitamins and minerals. That sounds like a perfectly healthy sandwich to me.


It may be high on calories, but that does not make it unhealthy; it just makes it something you should not eat excess of.

News Comments > Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt
81. Re: Notch Knocks Win8: Minecraft Certification in Doubt Sep 27, 2012, 19:48 Enahs
 
Let us clear up a lot of ignorance (not an insult, that is not a bad word). And hopefully people, especially developers will stop being so dramatic about Windows 8.

Windows 8 does not magically make your existing Windows software not work. It works exactly the same as before. If it works in WIn7, it works in Win 8.

You do not have to get approval from Microsoft to install new software, or develop software for Windows 8. No certification required.


For the app store, which is a controlled environment, for he non power user, you have to have your application certified. This means a basic check to make sure it will function properly, and not steal all of your personal data. This is good for the average user.

This does not actually effect us that are power users and play games on our PC. We can still do it just as we have always done.

Enough with this BS made up crap for reasons to justify not wanting Windows 8. All theses complaints about "closing" the system are completely invalid. It is only adding another method of acquiring content, in a more secure and controlled manner. NOTHING is being closed down!

Yes, but not enough children and elderly! You should go post about those demographics you missed on some other forum and make sure everybody understands your brilliance!

Yeah that's only because they've been trying realllllly hard to get the US to switch to metric for the last 25 years. Just remember if they ever do, you're going to end up getting screwed over just like we did up here. 25% less product, and pay 25% more.

You pay 25% more because we like to take advantage of our neighbors. You get 25% less because people like there numbers to feel right, 763mL is just wrong.

Bah I live within 150km of the US border. That whole "our/or" thing is interchangeable, it's why you can buy everything in two standards of measurement here still, and why grocery stores sell everything double stamped in lbs/kg, L/oz/Gal. Never mind that every digital thermometer they sell here comes in dual setting mode still. Hah.

That is how it is at the very bottom of the United State, to the middle, to everywhere.

It is official. I am now old. I bought a nose hair trimmer today.

Am I still allowed to play video games? Because I just reinstalled all HL2 to replay it and get ready for the Black Mesa mod!


I have not posted much in the past few years, but I do check out the site all the time. Hell, I visited this site when I was a teenager and now I am in my 30's damn it. Good job Blue, keep up the good work!

Most of you do not seem to understand what the vast majority of people use computers for. Simple stuff. Web browsing, Word. Gaming for the masses are simple games ala Angry Birds. The vast majority of people just want their computer to work, and be easy to use.

That is what Windows 8 is. The small minority of internet nerds and journalists (relative to the major population) use the computer completely different then what the majority of the planet uses.

Microsoft IS giving the average consumer what they want and what they need. You still have the ability to run 'legacy' software, and continue to make more complicated fancy software. So non typical users can still do what they want. Yes, there might be a change in interface going from one to the other. But at some point, you just have to decide to make a change and give people time to come to accept it.

There is a ton of negativity towards Windows 8 on the internet. And while most of it are totally valid points, they are irrelevant to the majority of users.

And if Windows 8 makes my mom stop asking me for some much help with her computer, then Windows 8 is successful in my book.

That would be Day Of The Tentacle.
