Next Generation Xbox and Playstation Consoles Will Have Optical Drives

Araxen Re:Hoping for flash media (206 comments)

That's true but Blu-Ray drives are a lot more likely to fail than a flash card reader. This generation of consoles are very prone to breaking(except the Wii) I want the next generation to have better reliability.

Next Generation Xbox and Playstation Consoles Will Have Optical Drives

Araxen Hoping for flash media (206 comments)

I was hoping for opitcal to be ditched in the next gen and for the industry to move onto flash media fully. By the time these consoles comes out 16GB of flash media will be pretty cheap.

Blizzard To Require Real First and Last Names For Official Forums

Araxen Re:trying to imagine... (833 comments)

I think the only positive thing Blizzard will get from this is less traffic on their official forums.

I can only hope that Blizzard will catch on to the outrage of this. I won't stop playing, but I'll stop using their forums. All of those useful posts I've made in the past will no longer continue to happen, including anything I've said that was inflammatory. The good posts I've made outweigh the ones where I put up bounties on people on my faction, trashed someone, etc.

I'll be posting on Elitist Jerks or some other forum for anything involving my class or endgame content. For discussing realm matters, I just won't post anymore.

Spoken like a true addict. The only thing to get Blizz to change their minds if you cancel your subscription otherwise they will do nothing.

Obama Sends Nuclear Experts To Tackle BP Oil Spill

Araxen Re:BP's fucked.. but look, over there, a communist (389 comments)

Faux News told kdawson that the nuclear option is bad I bet.

It's not like an uninhabitable part of the Gulf is going to become even more uninhabitable because we use a small nuke there. Whatever gets that leak closes ASAP is what I am for and so should everybody else.

A Layman's Guide To Bandwidth Pricing

Araxen Re:NYT quote is a bit unfair ... (203 comments)

Wrong...Karl Benz from Germany invented the Automobile.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile

"Although several other German engineers (including Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, and Siegfried Marcus) were working on the problem at about the same time, Karl Benz generally is acknowledged as the inventor of the modern automobile."

Look Out, Firefox 3 — IE8 Is Back On Top For Now

Araxen Re:Add-ins (662 comments)

Add-ins are the "killer app" of the browser for me. I don't think I'll ever switch from Firefox if competing browsers don't have this feature built into it. I just couldn't live without stuff like foxmarks, flagfox, customisegoogle, etc..

Yeah, IE8 can render pages faster but who really cares when pages render in a matter of seconds in any of the browsers on the market. 1 or 2 second difference means nothing to me. Add-ins mean alot to me and are the defining feature and without them it makes IE an inferior browser to Firefox.

Araxen Re:They should put it up on ebay (112 comments)

I think they should just do it the price is right way. Have the Intel CEO and the AMD Ceo spin the big wheel and whomever gets closer to 100 million dollars without going over wins!
