Are any of your opinions based in fact? You confuse "changing ones mind about concepts" with "selling out" and you think that someone with a net value of 33 billion is a "multi-millionaire". And you wonder why you're the town jester.

Keep being hilarious. We'll keep laughing.

He's referring to Notch ($150M), not Mark Zuckerberg ($33B). I still don't see how this is selling out, neither what principle he's selling nor what money he's receiving.

He's stupid, you're not, so he obviously doesn't get any of this. The difference is he's long proclaimed his hatred of FB, but now he's willing to work with Occulus regardless which is predicated on sales. Otherwise he wouldn't deal with them and would go with someone else who's doing VR.

Just drive fence posts into both sides of the tree with fence post anchors, and problem solved.

Fence post anchors are usually pretty hard to use close to trees. They expand underground!

Depends on how the roots run. Blue, post a pic of it so we have a better idea.

Speaking of a house stuff, I finally just found a rug that really ties the room together. It's really enhanced my Dudeness.

Maybe he is a frequent Blues poster and after a few beers he forgot he was speaking in public on behalf of a company.

Yeah, that's Common Sense 101 on how to get fired faster than shit through a goose in the corporate world. Wouldn't be surprised to see him let go or "resign" very soon.

Seasons passes are up for passing

I know, right? Remember when a game was just a standalone game with no expectation of expansion pack, unless it sold really, really well? Now a game is an excuse to milk as much cash as possible from people. Season passes are just automatic now, regardless of whether it makes sense, is desired by consumers, etc. etc.

Yeah, when I see this sort of crap it says to me that half a game is for sale.

When you abandon your principles for money that's called selling out.

Except that Notch has more money than he can spend in seven lifetimes. OR won't substantially add to his sales, if at all. It will simply add more immersiveness to his 5 year old game. It sounds like he just changed his mind, and especially given that FB has been hands off with Oculus, that's not an illogical transformation of opinion.

He's a multi-millionaire, not billionaire so it's not that much. However, the fact that he is selling out when he doesn't need the money only makes it worse. Hell, I'd sell out for the right amount. Principles start to get pretty rubbery with the more money that's involved. I'd feel ashamed of course. But cruising around the Caribbean on my 50ft sailboat, drinking rum and banging hot island chicks has a way of assuaging that guilt PDQ.

And it really seems like Zuck was making this investment not primarily as a financial decision, but as a fan of the technology ($2B for niche tech? Are you kidding me?).

3D hardware acceleration was once niche tech. Smartphones were once niche tech. Someone with the means and vision could have made a fortune on those and any number of other things. Zuck's $2B could easily be handsomely rewarded. And if it isn't? No big loss for him, he'll still be filthy rich no matter what. And he'll have had tons of fun with Oculus Rift. Why would he NOT do that deal, given the opportunity? Why would you not do it?

Vid cards were a necessity that were bound to happen sooner rather than later anyway, and people need phones so that's par for the course. Apart from practical applications in science/medicine/military with VR most people aren't going to want to strap a TV to their face. They don't even want to wear 3D glasses and they're a lot less cumbersome. VR for entertainment value will remain niche until they can make them no bigger than a pair of sunglasses or contacts. I really don't see it happening until people can jack in ala Neuromancer/Snow Crash.

I'm glad to see he's reconsidered, I thought he sounded a bit childish before. He hasn't sold out unless he's being paid which is possible but seems extremely unlikely given his reported wealth.

I would have thought Minecraft isn't very suited to the Rift. I wouldn't want to spend an entire evening wearing the DK1's headset in one go and I don't expect that to change in the near future.

People really need to stop using commercial cleaning products. They're bad for you, your pets and the environment. The only things you need to make everything you need at home are white vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, borax, soap, isopropyl alcohol. I make all my own cleansers.

Want to see what's in that Oreck sheisse?

Oreck Spot Remover Material Safety Data Sheet

If you don't want to read all 6 pages, in short it's a carcinogen that's bad for everything.

Now here's one simple, effective DIY stain remover.

DIY Stain Remover

It has 3 things. Hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap. I wouldn't use Dawn - or any other major commercial brand - but even if you do it's impact is still minimal by comparison.

A better pool would be to what degree backers feel burned and betrayed relative to their investment when the wizard finally pulls back the curtain all the way.

Definitely watching this one. Will wait for reviews however.

Yeah, been watching it from day one and I like what I see, however $30 for a game like this - nevermind EA - is way too much IMO.

Really pumped for this! The original campaign was a big let down, but they did a huge 180 with Berlin and totally redeemed themselves...like totally.

Yeah, I have a problem with all Islam. There are no moderates. It's an extremist religion that practices many different forms of terror from oppressing apostates, infidels and women to outright murdering them. So yeah, they're a religion of terrorists. Why do we have to cater to these people? Why do they require prayer rooms, and breaks 5 times a day to pray, strict menus, etc. Leave that shit in the old country or stay there. You want to be here you adapt to our way of life. If I wanted to adapt to your way of life I'd move to your country, wouldn't I?

Hilarious but fatally serious. How many actors or musicians have we lost to overdoses from 'legal' drugs? Popping all kinds of pills to stay wide awake, active and smooth while they perform and then sleeping pills because they are too hopped up to get it naturally. As the popularity of the sport increases (and it's HUGE even here in the US already), people dying from mixing 'legal' substances is going to happen. Hell it already does is e-sport crazed countries like S. Korea.

What sport? You mean the hobby of gaming?
