Is Google also going to build the graphics card required to power it?

Do you have to run native resolution? The higher rez can be used to act as great pixel density and remove screen door, no matter what the game rez is running at, the native grid would take care of that.

Once my current sat contract is up, Iíll have about a handful of tv streaming options to look through. Iíll save around 50%. Will have to see where my isp is at to with speed and limits. Today 1gbps and 1 Tera which is good but they could change for the worse possibly.

Starz apparently doesn't have the ability to get world wide deals. The majority of the world doesn't seem to have access to it without downloading it. If I'm reading things correctly not even England is getting without difficulty on the viewer's part. There's no Rami handed over rights, so my guess was they intended to move over to NetFlix.

Also if what HorrorScope said was true about Ash leaving (news to me) there's no way the show will survive without him.

Sorry when I said Ash I was abbreviating the show name. If the 3rd season is the last, I'd still be satisfied with the updated series overall.

I love "Ash vs. Evil Dead", but I never watch TV on it's scheduled time. I'm a cord cutter, so I watch what shows I want once they've been added to another platform. I watch the CW Arrowverse shows on Netflix for example, as they are added days after each season ends.

Just wanting to mention if you have updated cable/sat equipment a lot of their content is available on Demand. I have Starz at $5, which allows me to que up Ash at any point. A little FYI, at least they stepped up a little there.

S03E01 of AvED may have been the best episode yet. They are just hitting their stride with this series. Time to kill it off! :-facepalm-:

We are always on the brink of Cold fusion, awesome new battery technologies, cancer vaccines
Maybe we should be searching for the BRINK instead.


Have you ever noticed that all the instruments searching for INTELLIGENT life are pointed away from Earth?

Some good stuff there.

Even if this is that last year for Ash, it did a great job bringing it all back and I'd be satisfied with what they did.

Yes to the techs always right around the corner.

Yes look away, we have a planetary embarrassment at the helm, no need to make it an inter galactic disaster.

"Both companies arenít necessarily planning on losing money by shrinking ads, however. Fox and NBCU have both suggested that limiting commercial time will make the ad slots more impactful for the audience, and thus more valuable for advertisers."

If this turns out to be true... they should have done that YEARS AGO!

This shit happens once we settle all the different divides and the divide that wins is humanity first, profit second. So like this is as far out as the eyes can see.

Saw a good meme yesterday:

If you think society can't handle violent video games

Why the fuck would you let it have guns?


If we are going to be kinder and gentler, I'm ok with that, but a lot of aspects and not only video games needs to be cleaned up. Personally I think anyone attempting this is trying to put the Genie back in the bottle. Good luck, because you'll need it and still get nowhere.

i have a company code signing cert. it is used to sign my .net work. it has a finite 2 year lifespan. it is also set to update when there is 3 months left on it. these apps are web apps and connected to the internet. it would be commercial suicide for me to use a 2 year code signing cert for offline apps. there is no need to use them for offline apps either.

this also means the oculus will brick itself if the company decideds not to support itself....

That's a great point and I suspect owners will be asking them exactly this now. They can just stop shop and your'e done, very DRM'y'ish.

There are plenty of situations where expired SSL certificates block people from doing things. For example, on secure sites images, video, and other media will stop working and cannot be accessed. And e-commerce sites will no longer be able to run secure transactions (in a few cases, payment processors will out-right refuse to accept transactions from sites with expired certificates). In this situation, nobody would claim the website is using SSL as a form of DRM. There's only a break between server and client. This severing has prevented the software, and in the case of the Oculus, and hardware from working as expected. IOW put away the DRM tinfoil hats.

SSL !== DRM
DRM !== SSL

They are not the same thing.

First, I don't really care all that much about DRM one way or the other because I've rarely ever been burnt. There were some worse than others and are long gone now.

I do get your point, but what is the Net Difference, if something happens where your software is rendered useless unless fixed by someone not you? This is even legal owned software, so it could be argued in this case it is even worse. The net effect is the same fear DRM'ers have been warning about for decades now.

Truly incredible how we, the US, will deflect blame to anything in order to not have to deal with the real problems; mental health and gun laws.

Or it can be anything but the Gun. The Gun is our God, that is who we bow to in the USA if you bow or not.

Gun alone has never killed anyone they say, however there probably is a story of a unmanned miss firing killing someone somewhere.

But then opioids alone have never killed anyone. Or video games.

Like pretty much any inanimate object.

It's a lame point overall, you can have the 2nd but have reason to. But the GUN, the ALMIGHTY GUN, never to be questioned, never.

SSL = security and encryption (secure websites, eCommerce)
DRM = control and overreach (Sony Rootkit, SecuROM, Battle.net app, Steam app, Uplay app, Origin app)

Don't put SSL and secure certificates in the same bucket with DRM. They are not the same.

In this case they are acting somewhat the same as in, you can't play X because something we have done to stop you. If SSL is only for what you say, they've overstepped its boundaries as this isn't a website nor ecommerce, they used it in a DRM'y way.

Derp.

As someone you used to deal with SSL certificate updates/replacements that is a pretty bad fail. Never seen a system which didn't allow for automated notifications ahead of time when certificates were going to expire...

Yep huge miss here.

Funfact. Everyone working minimum wage earns less than the minimum. That's why it has to increase yearly by 2% to 4%, if it does not, then every year post setting of the wage you are effectively earning LESS than the minimum wage, since the wage is relative to the exact moment you set it. Inflation devalues the wage however, meaning 15$ a hour is horrendously bad

$15/hour is what they want. Currently, the federal government has mandated a nationwide minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Try living on that.

Wow, that's crazy low.

And get this, there are whites that want to throw field workers out of the country that could make less than the minimum and not replace those lost workers with their own? I guess they think there is a device like the one in "Cloudy with a Change of Meatballs" that we have now.

Right, if it were $3.37 it wouldn't take but a few weeks for drivers to know this isn't cutting it and it would have been dead a long time ago. Still need a Bitcoin based version where the company behind it is a total unknown, it is just an App to put driver and rider together. A true open social experience.

We all want to get you on the real killing fields. I have no idea what you are spewing here, no world war created, stood up to Russia not suck their cocks. Kill Bin L. Kept allies, allies, recovered economy and kept it steady. I guess you just want war, again love to see you in the fields showing off your bad ass.

If your going games you need to go movies and tv and some music to. Tons of insensitive and hateful content. If that were ever to be reformed, wow talk about a different world in 25 years. Now you'll need votes from the people and congress and for years in succession to pull this stunt off. I don't think he has it in him.

Hey, hey. Games are "different." They are "interactive." Clicking a mouse button to shoot is the same as pulling the trigger on a gun. Them games are dangerous, doncha know.

I know you are saying that tongue and cheek, but just think of all the movies that offend countries with over the top insulting stereotypes? Let alone insensitive disasters in a movie that happen to actual people, I bet that opens a wound every time. But look at that cool shit!
