Onlive and Gaikai didn't work out, let's just do it again! Maybe this time people will fall for it!

Five years from now they'll try yet again. Rolleyes

Whichever way you play you’ll be doing so with the highest levels of graphical fidelity

Bullshit. Graphical fidelity is one of the first things you sacrifice with cloud gaming. Games on cloud streams typically look like you're on Low settings on 720p...

Big Fucking Gaming Display.

I don't imagine too many people have a PC setup where a 65 inch screen is all that useful...

It's unbelievable, that Paltrow thing.

1) That there are people who actually think a 300 dollar fucking STRAW is going to do something for them.
2) That she's such a fucking sociopath that she doesn't care she's clearly ripping people off.

I know, right? Haven't they ever heard the phrase "once you go black, you never go back?"

Youtube's "algorithm" isn't well designed and has too much control over everything and no one at Youtube can understand or control it.

Human decisions are removed from Youtube. The algorithm begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug...

Watch the video at the bottom, it explains it pretty well.

I think Netflix knew damn well that very few shows would be good. They're knowingly going for quantity. People will watch anything, regardless of if it's good or not. It really doesn't matter for their profits. It's not really in their interest to buy all the best, costly stuff. As long as there's a handful of good things on their service, it's good enough for users to keep paying just to fill their free time. The new Netflix "review" system is proof of that. It was designed specifically to hide if titles are good or not.

Netflix designs shows for the entirety of their audience. And they have the data to show exactly what their audience likes. So sure, they may make dozens of show that you and I don't think are any good, but there's an audience for that show and they like it.

The whiny geek who wrote that article admits that there were at least four comedy shows that she loved, but somehow in her mind, four shows that she loves **A YEAR** is somehow indicative that Netflix only makes garbage now.

Netflix makes X amount of good shows for their enormously varied audience, who all love different things. There is no such thing as a show that everybody loves.

I can guarantee you that there's few to no people in red states sitting there going "HOOOWEEE DEM FUCKING LIBTARDS SHULD PAY MOAR TAXES SO I CAN HAVE MAH GUNZ!"

Yeah, because people in red states think they are the ones subsidizing the blue states.

I've lived in a red state for 15 years now, and I can genuinely say I've never heard a single person say this. Anecdotal evidence and all that. :-shrug-:

I fully support any state that wants to secede from Jesusland at this point, to be honest. The political and cultural divide is too strong and the red states need to be allowed to become the theocracy they so desperately want.

You'd probably have to go to 3 different countries at that point, since how do you make one 'nation' out of the blue states?

A road for 20 million people in California doesn't cost 10 times as much as a road for 2 million people in Oklahoma. So this MASSIVELY skews the argument.
Your argument isn't entirely wrong, but your example is terrible. Yeah, the road doesn't cost 10 times as much, but they need 10 times as many roads. Okay, maybe not 10 times as many roads, but a lot more.

Not as much as you would think, although it does depend on how many urban areas there are of course. There aren't many roads in Montana where there's few people living.

But once an area reaches a certain population, it has interstates, local highways, feeder roads, etc. The interstates and highways may be a few more lanes for the massively busy areas, but again, that doesn't inflate the cost enough to make up for that massively increased tax income.

Not to mention there are no 8 lane highways in Alabama, Wyoming, or many other "red" states.

Not as many, but there are still plenty of highways. In any case, it was just an example of a single thing of infrastructure. You can extrapolate it to many more areas where having 5 or 10 times the population does not increase the cost of providing tax-dollar-funded services and infrastructure in a commensurate rate.

So it's a skewed argument to just go "look at all those fucking conservatives stealing all our moneys!"

How long can this nonsense continue? The US of A is over IMO. Just split and go your separate ways. New America and Jesusland.

But then how would all of those poor red states suck all the cash from the rich blue ones?

That's a bit of an unfair argument. (I'm not just saying this because I live in a red state, I promise.)

States with more people in it obviously generate more cash income, and the coastal areas are where more people are going to live. Infrastructure, by and large, doesn't massively scale up in cost based on population. A road for 20 million people in California doesn't cost 10 times as much as a road for 2 million people in Oklahoma. So this MASSIVELY skews the argument.

If you were to alter the premise of the map, for example, healthcare cost per capita per age group, it would likely look almost the exact opposite since living in cities is genuinely considered to be more dangerous/less healthy than living in the country side.

I can guarantee you that there's few to no people in red states sitting there going "HOOOWEEE DEM FUCKING LIBTARDS SHULD PAY MOAR TAXES SO I CAN HAVE MAH GUNZ!"

I was the Product Manger of just such a product. We were to be hosted in the head-ends of cable providers; literally as close as you could get without being in the home. The latency and quality was still not great and the economics simply didn't work out for anyone: us, the provider or the consumer.

Thank you for being honest about it.
