Also, if Star Citizen was a single player game I'd be way more excited for both these products. I'd probably pay $350 for a single player space dogfighter with a solid career mode and VR support/goggles.

I'm actually with Cutter here. I think that it will catch on with enthusiasts, but go no further. Why?

1) I don't think you can "trick your body into thinking you're there." This is one sense
2) I don't think people want to stap anything to their heads
3) I really don't think people want to do that for lengthy hours. Is there eye fatigue? Is there neck fatigue?
4) This completely cuts you off from the outside world. Officially. Is someone breaking into your apartment and stealing your stuff? Are your college roommates playing a prank? Is your wife sitting on the couch next to you reading a magazine? You have absolutely no idea
5) You look like a giant geek. While yes, that can be overcome, being similar to and closely timed with Google Glass will not help
6) It's expensive for something that has one use. One. Games. I suppose film may come out with it, but who wants to watch a movie in first person?
7) I'm guessing, but uncertain, that it still has the issue 3DTVs do where anything that's not entirely in frame is cut off in a disturbing way

Might it catch on? Sure. But it needs to be $99, which we're pretty far from, and even then, I'm just not convinced more people than the hardcore gamers want to strap a pound or two to their eyeballs and cut themselves out from the world to focus exclusively on a game.

Metacritic on Amazon is strictly for games and not movies. That raises an eyebrow.

It's either an enormous conspiracy, or it's the result of a project the games team did that the movies team did not do and may adopt down the road.

Amazon isn't one giant department, it's many different departments with their own resources that don't always interact with each other. Movies and Games may sound similar, but they're totally different inside most companies, with absolutely no overlap in personnel and little interaction.

Controversial? There only controversial because the "games industry" won't shut up about how hard it makes their marketing job. How can we sell this pile of this if you tell people it's a pile of shit!?!?! Do you know how much money we spent on this?!

It's a lot like how Gamestop suddenly became public enemy number one for a short time because the game companies decided that 2nd hand sales was why they were losing so much money. I mean just because we make a 6 hour game that has mediocre gameplay making replay a complete waste of time and charging $60 for it doesn't mean people would naturally want some of their money back and would use whatever means necessary to get it...right? I mean people love paying us $60 for the games we make! Just look at our pre-order and day one sales! The problem is gamestop bootlegging our game and selling "used" copies because none of the people we worship that pre-ordered would do that...

It's a good move to add that to the product pages. I hope they go further and add it to the lists when searching for a variety of games. Currently it's only on the individual product page but you can still see the star ratings that amazon uses in the lists.

It's actually more controversial here, with people constantly discussing how everyone involved is "paid off," than it is with devs, who occasionally complain that being forced to hit certain targets means making a game that appeals to a wide audience and taking fewer risks. And, if you read the article, it has critics being critical of metacritic.

So I think your first sentence is mostly out of nowhere.

The Germany law could be useful in the states.

I don't answer my hone phone on record unless I recognize the number. My bosses don't get my personal cell # or email. If I am required to be reachable after hours then I am getting paid, otherwise they can pound sand.

I've never had a manager call me after hours unless it's an emergency. Being salaried, I'm always getting paid, or never getting paid, depending on how you view it.

But those calls can come often. At my last job, my boss was reporting to the CEO all the time. The company was based in Europe, so the CEO may be firing him questions at 5am. If my boss had questions on something I did, he couldn't wait until the morning so he occasionally would call me in the evening to ask.
My current job is in ecommerce. ecommerce is always on, so I need to always be on.

And I've been fortunate that every boss recognizes this and has no issue with me leaving a few hours early if I've had to do considerable work in late hours. I also work 60-70 hour weeks, so...



I think I mentioned here before that my friends on Wall Street got hit this year with a new rule that associates can't work Saturdays (after one died from a seizure while working a 16 hour Saturday.) This was timed poorly for them. They went from associates doing 100 hour weeks to promoted to VP this year, when they get to make other associates waste their weekends. Well, with this new rule, they're now the ones doing the Saturday work. Again. But their bonuses went up 100%, so I don't really have any sympathy.

Why isnt this used by the military if its so damn dangerous and potentially life threatening? Wouldnt this be like 100 times cheaper than bullets or like 1000 times cheaper than missles?? (And please dont point me to the naval shipbased lasers which are already seeing service, Im talking about handheld off the counter lasers, which are hardly lasers in the 'real' meaning of the word)

So a focused beam of light powerful enough to pop a balloon or light a match isn't a real "laser?"

What the heck is your definition of "laser?" What you learned from GI Joe and/or Real Genius? I'm kind of confused by that comment. The article said what they had was 13 times more powerful than what's "allowable," which is vague but I'm pretty certain they mean 13x over a 5Mw laser. Go YouTube what a 65Mw green laser can do.

jimnms wrote on Apr 2, 2014, 02:11:
Ewww. We had a Chick-fil-A open up recently here (small city) and people were waiting in line for hours, with lines for over a mile. I'm not kidding about the lines. It's near a busy 4-way intersection and cars were coming at it from all 4 ways. The police had to come out start making people leave because it was causing too much traffic, and that shit went on for about 3 weeks.

I've eaten at one a long time ago. I didn't think it was all that great and never went out of my way to go there again. After the frenzy died down, my sister brought me some once when she dropped my niece off and I thought it was disgusting. I thought maybe it was just a bad day, and gave it another try when she offered to bring me some again. Nope, it was still disgusting. I don't know what it is, but it tastes sweet, like they put sugar in their batter or something. I don't eat fried food much these days, but both KFC and Popeye's have some pretty damn good chicken strips.

Chik Fil A is the only fast food I can stomach, though I've had Popeye's a few times while desperate and it wasn't terrible. KFC is the lowest of the low to me, the two times I had it the chicken was pink and grey. McDonald's, Burger King, Arby's, whatever, all gross. But CFA tastes pretty good.

It's 100% multiplayer horde game-mode with 0 actual story in the mission, it's just setting up a .. uhm.. setting. Really an odd trailer for it when you think about it.

It's kind of fun and kind of half-assed and really difficult with less than 4 people.

Last I checked, regardless of what their current CEO may hold as personal beliefs, Mozilla has always been a gay friendly company. Why "punish" them for the personal beliefs of one man. A man who, as yet, has not let those beliefs affect company policy?

He isn't one man, he's the CEO. That speaks very loudly.

I still use FireFox. I think it's no better than IE at this point, but I use both. I enjoy both. That won't change. I also eat Chik Fil A when I'm around a Chik Fil A because it's the only fast food not utterly disgusting.

But the arguments people are making here drive me nuts.
"What happened to freedom of speech?" That's against the government
"How can you be for tolerance and not tolerate his opinion?" No one should have to tolerate intolerance. If I follow you around calling you an idiot all day (some people here may know that feeling, I admit), should you just shrug it off without saying anything because otherwise you're a hypocrite?
"He has a right to his opinion!" Yes, and on one is denying him this right. In return, others have a right to not want to support a company headed by a man with his opinion. You can't defend his right to an opinion by taking away other people's.

Umm, you even read the article Beamer?

First paragraph:

Earlier this month, a Fresno man received what is believed to be the strongest sentence issued anywhere in the United States for firing a laser pointer at an aircraft—14 years in prison. His girlfriend was also convicted on similar charges, but she will not be sentenced until May 2014.

That is the sentence he received. He might get out on parole/good behaviour earlier, but atm he's going to jail for 14 years...

Yeah, no, I didn't. Already apologized. It was dumb of me.

Also, I clearly did what I accused someone else of not doing just last week and didn't read the damn article.

He was already sentenced. I'm sorry, everyone.
The headline, though, is dumb. He isn't facing 14 years, he received 14 years. He'll still likely be out before, but there's a huge difference between what most reporters mean when they say "facing" and what a judge actually sentences you to. This guy is no longer facing 14 years and has been sentenced to 14 years.

Still, I screwed up by not clicking into the article.

The laser just going into the cockpit is very distracting, and like you said, that's not what a pilot needs on takeoff/landing, especially not in a helicopter...

Right, and both Helicopters were emergency services vehicles. One a police copter and the other an emergency transport for a children's hospital (which had a patient in it at the time). The sentence seems harsh, but the perpetrator was already on probation so that may have factored into it as well. Basically he was having his fun at other people's expense and safety and then got caught. I don't feel bad for him.

That's not a sentence, that's what he's facing.

People very, very, very rarely get 100% of what they're facing. It's much more common for them to get 0% of what they're facing.

What's the difference between what someone is facing and what they're sentenced to? Is what they're facing the maximum sentence? What the prosecution is asking for? What they'll actually serve?

Exactly, what they're facing is the maximum of all the crimes they're charged with.

Say Bob gets into an accident at 3 am one night, hitting a minivan with 4 people in it, killing 1. His car smells of alcohol, so he's arrested. The prosecution most likely hits him with driving under the influence, murder, intent to murder, battery, reckless driving, and a few other charges. What he's "facing" is the sum of all those maximum sentences. Reckless driving may have 5 years, battery may have 10 years, intent to murder may have 15 years, murder may have life or the death penalty, etc.

But when it comes down to the trial, the prosecution may have already realized that his car smelled because he was the DD for the night and Bob didn't drink anything, so already the DUI and murder charges he was facing when he was arrested are no longer on the table. At this point he'd likely be facing 25 years, for the reckless driving and for the injury it caused. But the jury may find that the minivan was also recklessly driving and more at fault, though Bob was still reckless driving. This would undoubtedly reduce the sentence to maybe 2 years, depending on the injury. Bob may have already been in jail 6 months before the trial, so we're looking at 1.5 more years. And, after another 6 months, he'd likely get out on parole. So, while he was facing life in prison, he actually served 1 year.

Um, people are putting DRM in coffee pods and ink jet toner cartridges nowdays. So, yeah, use your imagination.

Coffee Pod DRM: A physical item is put inside another physical item
Ink Jet Cartridge DRM: A physical item is put inside another physical item

VR Set: A dumb item, much like a monitor, receives a signal from an open, uncontrolled item, namely a PC.


Ink Cartridge DRM: Used to keep ink jet printer prices down
Coffee Pod DRM: Already seems likely to significantly damage sales of new coffee machines
VR Set DRM: Is nearly impossible to implement, would clearly tank the entire project, and would never, ever catch on.


What are you guys really afraid of?
That VR never hits? Are you that convinced that it would even be a good thing?
Or are you so massively infatuated with Oculus Rift that you think that not only could no one ever do what they've done in 21 months (which is, really, not much of anything other than building buzz) and that nothing could be good unless it has "Oculus Rift" printed on the side of it?

I just don't get why people are so fucking emotional about this. Let's say Facebook manages to kill Oculus Rift. So what? So fucking what? We lose Palmer Luckey, big fucking deal.
Oculus Rift was nothing 24 months ago and was purchased for 2 billion fucking dollars last week.
Don't you fucking think that, if Facebook fucks this up, someone else will do it right after seeing how much goddamn money there is out there for this thing? Who gives a shit if it's Oculus Rift bringing it to us?
People love corporations this much?

Not supporting the doom and gloom coming from people, but to this point in particular... HDCP, almost all of our media related electronic devices have DRM built into them.

And if Facebook attempts that they'll probably see all the Valve people that have gone over leave, causing a massive brain-drain, and the product would be a guaranteed failure. The thing about HDCP, though it may be crappy, is that licenses are readily available, anyone can license it, it isn't limited to one company, and it involves the software, not the devices. You will struggle to play a DVD with HDCP in a non-HDCP device, but you can run a non-HDCP DVD in an HDCP device all you want.

But if this is where you think it's going, can you tell me how many devices that use DRM to only run software by their company have been successful? I can't think of one.

And, if you mean that Facebook will just force it to only run software they approve, like Apple does, well, then the device fails. It's that simple. People already have a very large collection of software. If they're told they can't use that backlog, they will not buy it. But if sales are still robust enough despite this, someone else will see it and will make a non-DRMed device.

There's really no scenario in which we're using Facebook-exclusive VR sets. The early adopters for this device are exclusively people like the people here. If they do not early adopt, the device dies. They will not early adopt a device tied solely to Facebook.

People here are greatly, greatly overestimating how much money providers make from stolen phones. It isn't really that much.

From insurance, though? Between them and their partners, the companies that are solely mobile device insurance companies... that's where the money is. Not in people buying stolen phones, but in people paying to cheaply replace them in the miniscule chance it happens.

Usual story - some people are asinine conspiracy theories that jump to conclusions without any rationale behind them nor any real thought into how what they're speculating could come true, yet they think they're the only enlightened ones.
Seriously, detail to me a system, you can be non-technical about it if you aren't a technical person, that would allow a VR headset to only work with certain programs. Extra points if you can detail a way that isn't easy to circumvent.

I'm just kind of curious what does a laser look like in the cockpit of a helicopter? Does it create a bright flash as it goes through the windshield? Or does the operator have to be specifically aiming for the pilot's eyes?

It has to hit the pilot in the eye, but if it does, odds are pretty darn good that said pilot will be blinded by it, possibly permanently.

It doesn't need to hit the pilot's eye. It refracts when it hits the window, causing a bright spot. Given that it's typically green, and bright to begin with, it'll ruin a pilot's night vision for a bit. On takeoff and particularly landing this is not a happy thing.

Also, at these ranges, with consumer lasers, there's very little risk of permanent eye damage. They'd need an illegal laser to do that. Not that it's particularly hard to get an illegal laser, but it would have to be a ridiculously powerful one.

Gearbox deliberately ripped off CODEHUNTERS. This is the kind of stuff Randy Pitchford has been doing for 10+ years. Without Codehunters there likely would never have been a Borderlands 2.

Shut up. It's ALWAYS been that you've been arrested on what you "could" do.
Go build a time machine, go back to 1960 and drive drunk. You could kill someone. Even if you don't, you're probably going to jail.

Plus, for fuckssake, he's not being arrested for something he "could" do. In that case, he'd be getting murder charges, right? No, he's being arrested for something he ACTUALLY did, meaning he ACTUALLY shined a laser at a moving airplane.

I'm sorry, I know I've been a bit extra annoyed around here lately, but this post is unbelievable. "Used to be in this country" my ass. That's so insanely stupid of a post that I'm having trouble comprehending how it was even made.

And no, he won't get 14 years. How have people not figured this shit out? Headlines show you the MAXIMUM penalty, if the jury finds for all charges and the judge/jury, depending on trial/jurisdiction, goes with the maximum penalties. But that happens maybe 1% of the time. Typically someone gets, at most, half the penalties. Then they go to jail and get out early.
Have you never, ever seen a headline before?
