Biggest Headache For Game Developers: Abusive Fans
But watching grown men tackle each other for 5 hours is quality entertainment. Am I right?
Microsoft Will Squeeze Datacenters On Price of Windows Server
Man what FUD. First of all photoshop isn't a browser app, it's 'on your computer'.
It's *hugely* cheaper to do things their new way. Before upgrading the creative suite every year cost between $1300 and $1800, and to boot you didn't get everything.
Now it's (for individuals) $600 a year, and you get literally everything they offer.
It phones home once a month, that's it. Adobe's new pricing and licensing scheme is nothing but cheaper and better for everyone, unless you don't have internet or you're running lots of pirated plugins. (Which is probably the real reason you and many like you are upset.)
And if you think the NSA couldn't access your computer before Adobe, you're just... well..denying reality. Your user ID number would suggest some years on you, but your tone and arguments suggest otherwise. Confusing as shit.

We could all declare bankruptcy at once. That should do it.
Why PBS Won't Do Android
We've been doing some augmented reality games at the studio where I work lately. We build what we need in maya/max and move it to Unity for the build. With iOS, it's about a 10 minute ordeal to build and test it and use Testflight to send it around the office very quickly.
It was so easy that we decided to give it a shot for Android, I mean... it's like doubling your market right? Well... no. First most of the droid phones need special drivers, and they aren't easy to find. Then you have to build based on which version of the droidOS you are using, which on some phones is a pain to get because they don't list it outright. (Confusion between firmware vs. os version, etc. Keep in mind we are game devs not programmers.)
Googleusb doesn't always work properly, we spend hours if not days trying to get a build to work properly on various phones. It's a fucking ordeal let me tell you. We dropped Android support for the project and all future projects as a result. Not worth the time and effort until there is a more unifying experience between them. The cost was X to do iphone development, it's X*15 for droid.
Now this is just one very small segment and one that is not like the environments used by the more elite programmers that visit this site. But if a studio of 20 people who already have it working properly in iOS cannot get it working right on Droid, well.... forget droid.
Our version of perfection is "working without days of hassle to get the right drivers, firmware, etc for *each* phone we want to test it on." If that is who you are decrying, well...
As an artist, it DOES have to be perfect. Sorry you feel differently, but that's the reality. It's programmers like yourself who feel that it *doesn't* have to be perfect that make developing for Droid such a giant pain in the ass for us little guys.
I don't love Apple, but fuck if I want to spend any more late nights and weekends trying to get droid phones to work properly.

Federal Judge Says Interns Should Be Paid
Well presumably you'd pay the interns near minimum wage. Now if you are already paying your regular employees jack shit, then you're right, there's no point. If you're paying your regular employees jack shit, you probably don't have much you could teach an intern of any value so...

EA Is the Game Company Disney Was Looking For
Same here. For me, if it's not on steam it doesn't exist. And since EA isn't on steam... well... it's as if hundreds of games screamed out in isolation and were suddenly silenced.
YouTube To Offer Subscription Service This Week
I guess this no longer works. I should have checked before I posted.
YouTube To Offer Subscription Service This Week
What I do is when my show starts, I just take click toward the end of the show, after the last commercial but before the end. (Don't let it hit the very end.)
A commercial will play, then put I'll it back at the beginning. Enjoy a commercial free show from that point forward.
Hitting reload resets and you have to start over. I use Opera but I imagine it works with any browser.
North Korea's Twitter and Flickr Accounts Hacked By Anonymous
Making the people more aware that life isn't supposed to be they way it is for them? Brainwashing is powerful and most of them were born into this, have never left, and know nothing else.
It's a powerful tactic.

Surely they had lawyers pouring over it... didn't *they* notice?
Professors Rejecting Classroom Technology
You make a good point, but as a college instructor myself for about 10 years now I know the real reason.
It's extra work. End of story. Nobody wants to do extra work for nothing.

John Carmack: Kudos To Valve, But Linux Is Still Not a Viable Gaming Market
So basically what you are saying is that it's just like your phone service, internet service, apartment lease, insurance, etc etc.
Did you give those things up? Didn't think so.
Windows 8 Is Ready
I don't see how you arrived at your conclusion.
PCs are still cheaper than Macs (or even iPads), so they aren't going anywhere for business, which is MS's main market.
Apples main market seems to be consumer, so I'm not sure how these two things are related.
Star Wars: The Old Republic Adding Free-To-Play Option In November
The problem with stopmo is that you need multiple people to pull it off.
First, the stop mo equipment is about $60k right now for the good stuff, but it is coming down.
So you spend 60K, and hire an actor to do the motions, then hire a technical guy to capture the data, then hire an animator to clean up the key frame data because it's too big.
Now what's the one thing an animator doesn't want to do? That's right, fix up somebody else's shit. So they don't, most animators *hate* stop mo, and rightly so as it's basically taking food out of their mouths.
So you're looking at about $70k for doing some basic stop mo, and it probably wouldn't have taken nearly as long or much to do it by hand.
As to why things don't sync up? Well, blame marketing. They outsourced all the asset creation, and than at the last minute made the character go slower so the game took longer. I assure you, when the animator did the original animation, it was perfect. Either marketing/management, or the game engine itself fucked it all up.

Mold clay into a vessel,
it is the emptiness inside that makes it useful.
Cut windows and doors for a house,
it is the emptiness within that makes them useful.
Therefore profit comes from what is there,
usefulness from what is not there.
