But then, I don't see a lot of ads.. not having a TV helps.

I agree eRe4. I was responding to the article's nonsense -- that's what they were attempting to portray not me, I was just using their lame examples.

The only ads I see anymore are on Hulu for my wife and I, which I can put up with since they have the timer and aren't long. And only occasionally as there's only a few shows I watch. I primarily do movies on Netflix (kids ONLY get Netflix) or Amazon, play Pandora most of the time.

Mhhh. Maybe we are not the ones to talk about it then. I am guessing the article talks about game advertising. And I don't see that in my browsing simply because I got paranoid and block everything

I am sure companies doing advertising would rather people do not react like that... but if they only want to target males that can be lured in with that.. ain't my place to complain about that.

Speaking of ads.. did I ever mention that bluesnews is completely non-browsable on a tablet without adblock?

Nvidia is slipping BIGTIME.....I swear it seems like their trying to paint a rosy picture but I am just not seeing anything good coming from them till what maybe q4/2014.....Something went to their head or they just got lazy....hmmmmm

Why would Nvidia or ATI for that matter push the "envelop" when there is nothing worth pushing it for? I think at this point both sides wait on new engines and games... and the occ-rift (which'll place fundamental new challenges on GPU's)

I'm pretty sure every mobile chip in the last 10 years has blurred the line between desktop and mobile performance and is doing so 3 or 4 years sooner than someone who stands to gain from making it look good expected.

Hehe, no.. that line is not getting blurred, it's become a giant 5km wide and 2km deep canyon.

Unless you want a mobile device with 5minutes of battery life, you will never replace a high end gaming rig with anything not attached to a power socket.

There is such a way still, it's called a crack *ducks*

Cracking games you own is also perfectly legal.. just fyi.

Not in the U.S., it ain't. The DMCA says that any measure that circumvents DRM is illegal.

Ah.. did I mention I love being European (Britain excluded).... Streaming ain't illegal, downloading cracks ain't illegal.... customers have rights, and companies are not persons.

And yeah.. it doesn't work for MP games.. but then that's kind of expected.

The fact that you can seamlessly get on board the Jackdaw and command it, drive it next to a dock and then jump on that dock is truly revolutionary.

There isn't a SINGLE game that did that before. And that is what that article means. Yeah in space things get a little trickier, but Mass Effect had (why?) loading screens between outside and inside, it was never the feeling that the ship inside is the same ship you see from the outside.

Actually, that applies to every single time you dock to anything. It felt so disjointed.

Uhm we've had it forever in vehicular shooters and games like Halo and Unreal tournament 2004. Halo's jeep is pretty iconic.

Also freespace 2.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhAR8rWPluQ

Just because they didn't make a 'vehicle' section with the normandy does not mean it hasn't been done before.

I am kinda stumped because you didn't get my point and I don't understand why.. the word SEAMLESS is kinda important in my post. Did you not play Black Flag? What I was saying is pretty dang clear. You can walk around on your ship in Black Flag, take control seamlessly, then stop controlling seamlessly, walk to the top of the main mast and jump down into the ocean swim to a nearby island and back, climb up the side and continue on your merry way. All with proper physics and interaction of ship + waves, including AI actors (that are on scripted paths with basic logic, but it is revolutionary all the same).

Also vehicle combat is.. the worst of all the examples you could bring. How many games with vehicle combat you saw where you could walk around the mesh of your vehicle *Seamlessly* while it moved? The only game that did something as awesome was Shadows of the Colossus. Seamless riding around, climbing of them, that is.

All I can think of is that you don't have played Black Flag. Because if you had, the word seamless interaction with a ship, would have a meaning for you that'd make you cringe whenever you see vehicles in MP shooters. Or in Arma 3 ... which is not a single dolt better than BF4 when it comes to this.

Most vehicles in MP games are teleport triggers. Battlefield, Arma, Halo and UT all do it the same.... hence why I am confused how you can mention them when I talk about seamless interactions

And finally..... you really did not get my point
As I am not talking about combat. I am talking about seamless interaction.

Regardless of LG being a small player, that Windows 8 is really working out well for PC makers. I wonder when Microsoft will take over hardware production of the PC and lock Windows to their hardware only.
I didn't know that windows 8 was out 4 years ago when the decline started in the PC market. The problem is we're at a saturation point for PC's, especially for the non-gamer home market. And for businesses rollouts are only just starting for Win7 in a lot of cases to replace XP.

Microsoft imo shot itself in the foot by not making their windows a modular platform unbound from hardware back when xp released. MS could have completely dominated the OS market 100% that way, they sell the platform but everyone can make their own OS variation and sell it on that platform (or even give it away for free). So Unix? Unix would be a module you can install for free, it runs on a very slight abstraction layer for hardware (Basically, Mantle for all Hardware) and Linux could do whatever it wants on top of that. That way all OS would be able to always support all hardware. And drivers could have been unified across all OS.

With that, MS could have become the "Steam" of operating systems. And Linux would not be the opposite of windows, it would be part of MS OS platform offerings, sure a free* part (Getting on that platform would obviously not be free), but in the end MS wouldn't care about that. They run the platform and thus get money from that without doing a thing.

I wonder if that would have worked ^^

But speaking of tablets, Since I paid just 130 for a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WIFI and recently went and flashed it to cyanogen mod I am now running latest android 4.3.1 as well ;p (Nexus 7 is 3 times more expensive here) and for what? a bit more storage.. wee! Tab 2 has SDcard so easy more storage.

Quad vs Dual and twice the resolution. That isn't like nothing at all, aye?

For practical use it is nothing. 7" tablets do not benefit from higher resolution nor from a quad core cpu. To browse web, watch youtube and read emails you don't need full HD nor quad cores. And to game... well that is assuming there are worthwhile games on Android. Which there aren't.

What I do regret though, is not having a real usb port.

And that dual core runs SNES9x EX+ just fine ,) Obviously a Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 are both high end hardware, but you are getting into high price ranges there, and for that I'd want USB ports and Windows.... and HDMI out

Because both are things you are absolutely gonna want on a larger more powerful tablet. (and 400 is the most I would pay for such a windows intel i7 or i5 tablet)

half of all pc game problems are end user

And 100% of your posts lack grammar.


attacking my grammar proves all of what i said is true. people lash out and try to put people down when they are faced with the TRUTH. I so love your comment thank you

Maybe that comment is true in most cases, but your post before was complete nonsense. I played 100 hours BF4 and the issues people complain about are not end user related. Half the crashes were because of server issues or a known bug (skyscraper crashing half the server) or the Audio corruption issue because of 1 gun that persisted through reloads. Or the famous "KIA" bug because you vaulted over a hedge or whatever in sprint. Or the revive bug

And if you actually play BF4 you had all these issues.. which is pretty much why your post only produces laughter in those who actually know what state BF4 was in. Nowadays it's mostly fixed, but nowadays is 4 months after release.

I find myself quite productive with my Nexus 10 (wouldn't suggest it now due to it being over a year old and still same price... needs a refresh). I have a bluetooth keyboard and apps like AIDE and Sand IDE to program with.

The Samsung normal tablets I'm not for due to all the bloatware, but... CyanogenMOD? Does it work with those touch sensitive pens? Would be tempted for that if they work as well...

You'd need to check the wiki for info whether all features of the device in question are supported. Normally pens work as they do.. Cyanogen Mod supports digitizer pen. Just not sure how exactly that works.

Actually, the surface pro 2 is way more productive than both ipad and android. It's generally a laptop that's also a tablet and has a great high res video output for a large monitor. The click keyboard is actually really good. This is definitely more of a laptop replacement than a consumer tablet hence the price tag.

If I were to think about a tablet for work I'd go with a Surface Pro 2 as well...

But speaking of tablets, Since I paid just 130 for a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 WIFI and recently went and flashed it to cyanogen mod I am now running latest android 4.3.1 as well ;p (Nexus 7 is 3 times more expensive here) and for what? a bit more storage.. wee! Tab 2 has SDcard so easy more storage.

I am super happy with my tablet but I am only using it to read news in the morning (emails etc.) without having to switch my big fat PC on. Also watch youtube every now and then when eating etc. It adds to the daily trot but it doesn't add much to my productivity...

With Cyanogen mod / Heimdall / Clockwork Recovery you also get proper FULL device backup and unshackle the hardware from the manufacturer crapware that's installed (50 dozen Samsung services are not my idea of a proper use of my memory)

After flashing, my available ram went from 400 to 817... that's how much CRAP Samsung had running in the background.

Pfft, Youtube. You can't even get lowest end bandwith streaming well. 240p and it still has to buffer.


I'd say that's more of our shitty infrastructure problem...


Nah, youtube assigns bandwidth to the larger channels, try to watch a new channel with 300 or so views and you get constant buffering no matter the connection. On large channels 720p or 1080p loads instantly for me.

It's another shitty thing youtube does.

Either Apple codes shitty software, and we know they do. Or they are helping the NSA shadow government and code shitty software. And this means they were doing it even during the Jobs Era.

I remember the shock when the system requirements for Wing Command 2 came out, and I was SOL. I felt so betrayed!


For me the game that did that was Strike Commander ^^ And yeah, originally I had 640k RAM as well, what a hassle that was.

Either way, I much prefer my current rig I have no nostalgia for old computers.

What I do have nostalgia about is the BNC network cables with these very solid metal rotation locks, and T pieces to link 3 PC's together, and those awesome end-caps, back then networking had real beefy feeling to it, not the wimpy feeling you get from CAT5e or CAT6 cables nowadays. My first LAN was with that (on a 468 DX2 66) we played the original descent. It was mindblowing. Later on HL DM. Crossfire (map with the bunker and the "button" ) and much later on BF1942 Coop vs AI

And when the first Unreal came out. For the first time in my life I saw graphics worthy to be called that. Unreal had reflections for fucks sake. REFLECTIONS, many many modern games nowadays still do NOT have reflections. It also ran like crap* until I got a Voodoo card

Ah... I have nostalgia for games, but not for technology. Mhh

Aside that I remember something when my school buddy called me over to install a game. He was stumped what the manual meant by typing A: and setup.

And he should have been, because his computer didn't have a floppy drive. I was facepalming on the way back. Yes, he bought a game on floppies and had a pc without a floppy drive. Good ol times...
