That comment wasn't directed at your, btw - I just can't stand brand-locked 'exclusives'. It's not like it requires Tegra hardware to run or anything.

As always, I'm loving your work! Allthumbsup

No problem, glad I can help. I am also trying to avoid linking to THD games (Tegra HD, needs a Tegra card) but those might slip through here and there.

Oh lord, there are some things I am grateful for being out of the loop on and I feel this may be one of those things.

I'd not heard of that one, either. But I'm sure as fuck not gonna google it...


Yeah... that one you're better off not even knowing it exists.

Of course, now you know it exists, so you might as well Google it.

Oh god... NSFW

So you're not going to explain why you brought this crap up in the first place? What's the relation to the article?

That like a Google search, the most random subjects can be found when your not looking for that subject?

Funny how people can be so smart in one area of life and be totally dense in others. Keep voting liberal and eventually your company will be taken over by the government.

Keep voting conservative and watch your every right be taken over by big companies like the RIAA/MPAA

Strikefleet Omega was created by the people behind the Shadowrun Returns kickstarter.

Just saying.

I did not know that, will have to give it a try then.

Also looking forward to Shadowrun Returns

Blue's general policy has been "if it's news, send it in" and he usually runs it. In this case, for a long time now the majority of mobilization links have been geared towards apple. So someone (Kitkoan) suggested a good site for android links/games, and Blue is running those.

So again... ( ) If you don't like what you see, send something else in, and it might just make it.


I look in around 6 different sites for new Android games and just make a list of them and send them to Blue at night when I'm done work.

Just taking your advice to heart. I wanted to see more Android games here so I do this... and see more Android games here.

You know, I really tire of Valve's smarmy attitude at times. What a dickish thing to say. You can't just come out and state the date outright? Or maybe no one at Valve is "interested" in doing this and it won't happen untill someone is, right?


Might be a sales issue. Without a listed date people are more likely to buy X game now, but with a date it's easier for them to hold off and buy it when the sale happens since they know if they are having to wait a week or a month+

Cisco backpedals after uproar, drops cloud from default router setting.

Glad they reconsidered, though it never should have been forced on people to begin with. No way in hell I'd buy one of those...


I'm fine with them forcing it, I mean those routers are sold with that as a feature and if that's what they want that's what they want (I see some benefit to it, too, but, like, a marginal once-in-10-years kind of event.)

I'm just not cool with them rolling it out to people that had already been using the device prior. That's a drastic change. But people buying it now? It says on the box it's a cloud control, no big deal if it's the default - it's a selling point.

I'll stick with routers whose firmware I can replace, anyway. Probably need to replace my Linux powered Linksys (54GL?) but not for a while.

Does it say on the box Cloud control required/only interface? And that it is collecting your information as its being passed through?

Its one thing to mention a feature, its another when its the feature is the only thing you can use and that its spying on you

Joe Wilcox asks if $40 is too much to pay for Windows 8 and current results show that customer opinion is split in half. About 43 percent of all users who participated in the poll stated that they would upgrade for the price, while roughly 42 percent stated they would not.

And of the roughly 42 percent that stated they wouldn't upgrade stated that they won't due to price? I'm not going to upgrade, not because I feel that $40 is too much, but because I don't see a need to upgrade to Windows 8.

Its an OS made for touch screens and my laptop isn't a touch screen laptop. I use Windows to play games, thats it. I don't need Windows 8 to do that, in fact it might kill a few of my games so thats a reason for me not to upgrade.

I have an Transformer Android tablet and it's amazing, and I use it a lot to be honest. I find its great for reading ebooks and following along with lessons on computer projects.

Now does this mean it replaces my laptop? No, there are things that tablets running on mobile OS's can't do. Can I use it as a temp replacement for my laptop? Yes, I did when I took it with me to South Korea for a month and it didn't make me go nuts. In the end, a tablet I feel helps complement my laptop, but it doesn't replace it.

As for the comment about how Android tablets aren't as good as iPads, I will argue against that. I have an Android tablet in my house (mine) and an iPad 3 (roommates) and honestly I tend to find that my tablet is more useful and functional then the iPad. And Apple really doesn't own the tablet market, Android does, Apple is just fiddling with the numbers. iPad is around 62% of the market by volume sold, but most iPads are being sold at discount bulk rate to schools and businesses that are technically dead zones, these customers don't by apps they just want the one hardware, and these aren't the average consumer. Android tablets are being bought by normal customers, they aren't being sold in the tens of thousands to businesses and control about 38-40% of the market, and these numbers are being artificially propped up by dead end sales.

I have to admit, I was looking forward to this... until I saw it was

a) Not a remake but a re-release

b) Tied to their own unique store. I don't need yet another account to keep track of, I have enough of them. All this says is people are just trying to follow the EA model of "Well if that company can do their own store and maximize profits, so can we."

c) The comment about cloud saves makes it sound very much like always on DRM just trying to hide as something else, a la Diablo 3

Apple is usually pretty good about this... they'd rather not release a feature than release a half finished feature.

Calling it one of the worst screw-ups though? It's getting excellent reviews overall, even for an Apple product.

I'd rather view the web on a retina display that scrolls at 20fps than a non-retina at 50fps
(games on the other hand....)

Thats the issue here, it is a half finished feature that they haven't even mentioned when it will be finished. And it possibly will be finished when the next OS comes out, and unless I'm wrong you will have to pay for that. So not only waiting for a fix for a half-finished feature but possible needing to pay to fix it.

I see if a possible worst screw up of this year because Apple went through so much time and effort to hype this up and declare is was so amazing to release this half-baked project that shouldn't have been out the door yet. For something that was supposed to be so "amazing and revolutionary" it lacks massively and has no date when it will be fixed or addressed to make it decent in the real world. Most people use a laptop to surf the internet and this machine is hurting to do that. And to make it worse, it's under Apple "pro" series, aka Professional series. If its hurting to do the very basics, what professional work do you really think it's going to do take real power?

And I've seen the excellent reviews, they all have based it on the the screens resolution in one section but then in every other part always bring down the resolution to half the size and use that as their marker for testing. Whats the point of testing it at half size when what makes this a unique laptop is the bigger screen size? Why do the ones who give great reviews to this laptop never test it at full resolution and then judge what its like? At that screen size you might as well be reviewing the non-retina MBP.

Thats great... whenever that happens.

Like with all companies, the customer shouldn't be a beta-tester without being told up front. And it should have been addressed before it went out, again, other companies get flak for doing this exact thing "Yes, there is problem x, but we will issue a patch for it... some time in the future not sure when."

While I'm guessing I'm going to see a lot of hate after I say this but I'm going ahead anyways.

A tech screw up that could have been on the list I feel is the Macbook Pro with Retina. Its one of those products that sounds great on paper but now that people are starting to use it and spec it, it's starting to sound like a screw up more then anything.

Reviews like this one are stating that the systems are having problems with viewing websites like facebook and are having an average frame rate of 20, with the new OS upgrade bumping it up to 20-30 FPS. This just came out and it's already having issues with keeping up with website scrolling? And on top it won't be upgraded for a year.

Its one of those tech ideas that sounded great, but didn't work out as well as planned.
