Missing a few zeros there.

Oculus Rift review roundup: Enthusiasts love it, mainstream not so much. Like I said, "Well that's nice for the 100 people who have one and the computer to run one." 100 people is a metaphor for a small number.

Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout, "Do your worst, for I will do mine!"

California raises minimum wage to $15 an hour. As a Web UX Developer / Programmer I will make a slight dozen digits more* than someone who flips hamburgers, stuffs lettuce in a taco, and drops fries in a vat of grease. These are no skill jobs. They're not suppose to be living income jobs. People who "settle" at minimum wage jobs basically gave up on life. It's not the government's job to force companies to give these people a 6% raise every year for the next six years!

*I care not to say specifically how much

Valve made $750 million last year. The math says 1.1 million isn't going to hurt them. For them it's like ordering a pizza, having it be delivered, and tipping the driver.

The FBI Has Successfully Unlocked The San Bernardino terrorists iPhone Without Apple's Help.

Correction. A tech company from Israel successfully unlocked the San Bernardino terrorists iPhone. Makes sense. A country under constant thread of terrorist attack has to figure out how to unlock their phones without consulting Apple.

Why are all the scenes shot in variable third person camera angles? The trailer doesn't shows anything VR.

But TEH C100UD!!! Unless a console wants to price itself out of the market or take a huge loss on every unit sold, never going to happen. I do feel like the current generation started out a bit further behind the curve than normal.

Ironically the Steam Link is a true nextgen cloud console that is more powerful than any current console.

I'm fine with Nintendo wanting to claim their nextgen console is more powerful than a PS4 as long as they stay in the console realm. No console will ever be more powerful than a PC. #PCMasterRace!

It is pretty annoying though in regards to how CCP markets this side of the game. Videos such as This is Eve are as amazing as they are misleading in regards to how inaccurate they are at portraying epic battles which essentially turn in to a jumbled up power point presentation. It's still impressive but it's in no way representing the expectations they're building up to.

Exactly! Ships don't warp into a system from a distance, form cool formations and then fly into battle. No, they just warp into the thick of things in different positions and start firing at whatever ship they can target first. It's absolute chaos.

Only those who are actually there get to experience those big battles. You can watch the battle on Youtube but it's not the same. Besides most of the recorded Eve battles I've seen look like a hot mess: different sized ships layered everywhere all pointing in different directions, and so much laggy footage. It's definitely not the epic space battles we've grown accustomed to in modern sci-fi.

Nice to see a peaceful, fun game like Stardew Valley taking the #2 spot showing that not every video game needs to have violence to be successful.

But it does actually contain violence

And sex

It's not Rated M for Mature. Come on... you know what I mean goofballs.

If you cared for quality you'd have a HBO subscription. Netflix shows and quality is a fair point, but aside from Daredevil nothing Netflix produced even peaked my interest.

I hear House of Cards is a riot.

Why are the before videos in black and white and the after in color? Is DAYZ a black and white game?

It's how they handle lighting in the day/night cycle. When there's only moonlight, there is little to no color shown. Sometimes it's near pitch-black, and people often activate what we like to call "gamma goggles." Cranking up the gamma allows you to see better at night by magnifying the faintest sources of light, and you'll see everything in black and white because doing so also screws with the contrast.

So it looks like night time in color is an improvement then.

A lot of the shows I was watching on Netflix are still shown on Amazon Prime, like Stargate SG1, for instance.

IMO, Amazon Prime is better if what you want are movies and old TV shows. Netflix is what you want if original programming is your thing. I have both and they each fulfill a need.

Add Hulu Plus to create an entertainment trifecta.
