1. The "it was free" argument is a logical fallacy. You exchanged a paid key to get 10. If you buy a new computer you are purchasing 10 yet again.

2. Just because you don't get ads has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the user base. The majority don't know how to change Windows default settings or edit the registry.


Speaking for me...

I will not buy a new pc, I will upgrade and win10 will work without paying.

I cannot worry about what others can't do, if it is just making a few easy changes to not have ads. If I lived that way, there are millions of tragedies like this in the naked city and some of them do get me, pc one's... yah no, your in my wheelhouse. That is what intelligence and a little gumption is supposed to do for us.

Do we all just fall for what the dumbest user will fall for our what us smarter pc users do? I have to go with what I do.

If I paid any amount of money for Windows 10 I might be upset... but I didn't, so I'm not whining that a free OS came with a few ads (which I must have inadvertently disabled because... no fuckin ads here).

That glass house won't stand for long. There's not much worse than people whining about something completely optional that they were given for free.


Right, I did all my units to Win10 for free, many. Haven't seen an ad yet. I'm lucky that way. Now if there were ads and I couldn't do anything about them, yes that would get under me some, if it were kept to a minimum, probably can swallow. However if it became like the Xbox, then yes problem. Still have those Win7 images on file just in case. But until then... I'm going with what my eyes see and my mind tells me, so far, zero ads. Wait let me count them one more time... yes zero.

"Were Only Human" to the key of Mary Tyler Moore:

Who can turn the world on with their smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's humans, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it
Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can never tell, why don't you take it
You're only human after all
You're only human after all
How will you make it on your own?
This world is awfully big, human this time you're all alone
But it's time you started living
It's time you let someone else do some giving
Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can never tell, why don't you take it
You're only human after all
You're only human after all

these procedural games with tech trees should have AI species which are also climbing up the tech tree ladder and producing items and goods and so forth, claiming territory, ranging from friendly to hostile, forming alliances and conflicts, etc.

Now there is a nice dream.

Right as asked "Why would IBM fabricate data?". There simply could be a partnership where it makes sense to tout it all up. But whatever like I care.

As to others that say "I do work with IBM and I see no macs". Almost assuredly you see a microscopic view as IBM in full, which is around 350K strong. Sort of like a UPS Truck driver thinking he knows all UPS by his singular run. Being fair to ourselves, we wouldn't be able to make a accurate blanket statement with our personal visits and workings with IBM, unless you are at the Enterprise level high-up talking overall deployment. I'm not sure I read that here.

I do agree overall that I don't personally see why you would want to go Apple over PC generally. Shit all the newer boxes are solid state 4x4x1's tacked on the back of the monitor for most users now. We know Win7+ is solid... So you have cheaper and tons more program compatibility with Windows. To me it would be an odd questionable choice, but nunz of mine.

The 99-91 must be if you have one in the building anywhere you count. There is no way that many people are using either, not even close.

Gamers in general have a very short (read: none at all) memory. Don't you remember Age of Conan? What makes you think this will be any different?

Personally I'm well aware of Funcom overall. Why could it be different? MMO vs Survival is a different scale, PERHAPS one they can handle. We'll see.

I love Apple hardware, but I think iPads are just awful for the classroom. When the kids get to middle school, give everyone a raspberry pie and let them learn how a computer actually works.

I was building computers from 5th grade on back in the late 80s/90s. Kids need to be doing that more, not playing tablet/phone games so much.

Not a bad idea. I can totally see giving younger kids that type of tech and then in HS, start giving them every day tools and every day exp type of classes. Along with improved steering and training in fields they excel at.

Running non-VR games on the Rift (and as far as I know the Vive) requires you to either get vorpx to turn them into VR games, or you run them in something like Bigscreen to have a virtual monitor. I haven't bothered, personally, but maybe another VR owner can speak to it.

I was just saying that the Rift has access to the same library as the Vive, since Valve and HTC don't believe in locking people out. So SteamVR is mostly platform agnostic.

Understood, wondered if you had any feedback, thanks.

Damn…this may have pushed me towards the Rift.

I really just want the headset for the first generation so I can do sim racing. I prefer the whole ecosystem that Valve is developing with HTC/LG and the Indie title support through Steam…but for an extra $475 Canadian?

If I go with the Rift, I can basically upgrade my video card to a 1070 'for free'...

Just want to note: the Rift has access to the Vive's library -- it can play games on Steam or HTC's Vivespot. Oculus is the only one with a lock on its library.

Although, without the Touch controllers you won't actually be able to play most of the VR games on Steam other than the racers and cockpit games.

How are standard games on the Oculus, just pumping the flat-screen visuals to it? Does it look big? Feel a little more immersive being captivated?

Tech Report Benches...

Those with say a 2500K, I have a i7 similar, compare the 2600K (similar) to the 7700K results. This is 1080P with a 1080 GPU. To me those are substantial CPU gains. I'm an 1080P gamer, so I'm not always stressing the GPU before the CPU.

Yeah not a bad thought, I can just get the sit down version for now at $400. Hmm....

They should completely remove technology from schools up till at least grade 5.

you see these zombie kids glued to tablets and cellphone screens being pushed around in grocery carts everywhere, many of which could use the exercise of actually walking in the grocery store.

And that is never why it is kids these days. Adults these days.
