What are you babbling about? What does one of Sony's deranged execs have to do with this? The person in question is employed by Google, not Sony.

If you read the first few posts you would know what I'm babbling about. Idiotic, redundant quotes that mean nothing. Like this headline for instance - "Google: 'iPod will hold all the world's TV in 12 years'". Really, it doesnt take a scholar to figure that one out.

Ah... all the worlds tv! Penn and Teller should do a piece on this.

Yeah, but a years worth of video releases at what quality, at what speed would we attain this video and more importantly at what price? You know they are going to milk this well beyond the 12 year mark for anyone that doesnt have a 6 figure yearly pay check.

It's as remakably stupid as the quote "PlayStation 5 will probably be as powerful as the human brain." No surprises that the following gems came from the same person...

"Pearson said that brain-downloading technology would initially be the preserve of the rich, but would become more available over subsequent decades." Yes you can download your brain in 43 years! Yeah right. Download what exactly?

"Pearson also predicted that it would be possible to build a fully conscious computer with superhuman levels of intelligence as early as 2020." There is no need to explain to anyone how incredibly stupid this comment is.

Bottom line - predictions of a future thats moving so rapidly are a waste of time. It's more likely technology will boom in areas that we least expect.

...and the obligatory...

"We're confident that DNF will be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, game of 1998. And this confidence is not misplaced." - Scott Miller, 1997

If anything will own tv it wont be ipod. It will be youtube.

Great. E3 decides to downsize a bit and now everyone and their brother is starting up a gaming expo.

No surprises there. E3 oozed money.

Oh and the only thing you'll need more of is time. Exactly the thing that is becoming harder and harder to get hold of on a daily basis for everyone.

Like money. Oh, but you'll need more of that too considering this consoles chart topping, wallet emptying price tag.

The PS3 is a nice powerfull machine for sure, but this kind of horsecrap is just wrong.

But the machine may be more intelligent than you are. Did you take that into consideration?

3d Realms in front of the firing squad? Oh *on* firing squad. I thought they were paying for their obscenely long development time on DNF.

Reading further on the link provided in the Q&A -

"I'm glad Scott's views on episodic tally with what i've been saying for ages now."

Scott says: "6-9 months for ~6 hours gameplay is too long to wait."

Going by that logic, if DNF has 80+ hours of gameplay, 10 years is too long to wait.

Funny. Read the headline and briefly the contents of the body of the story and wondered, "how are the blues readers going to tear this one to shreds?". I guess the show is just starting.

Nothing about how good the food was or anything useless like booth bags.

The food was good at E3? The hotdogs? The large cokes?

I sometimes wonder when I hear these utopian dreams of no human life on the planet and wonder why those that dream of it don't start with themselves first? Lead by example.

It reminds me a little of the intro of the first Shining movie. That intro was pretty creepy too, I hope they can capture an atmosphere like that. It's really looking good.

Eventually, I believe that we'll hit a balance point where America is has more imports than people with jobs that can afford them, so that the only people who will be able to buy anything are lawyers, doctors, and CEOs. This sort of economy seems to me to just be putting more weight on the back of Americans, and we keep knocking their feet out from under them. Sooner or later, something's going to break, and it's going to be catastrophic.

Maybe asia will eventually start to outsource their art/programming etc needs to the u.s. purely for cost cutting measures?
