The State of Linux Gaming In the SteamOS Era

ArcadeMan Re:Easy of porting over is the key (110 comments)

It's not that Macs have a stigma of being piss-poor gaming machines, it's that Apple is so obsessed with thin computers, even the desktop models, that they simply can't use half-decent GPUs. If you put aside things like OS X and hardware features which are irrelevant to gaming, the cost of a desktop Mac is much higher than a desktop Windows or Linux PC.

Pebble Time Smartwatch Receives Overwhelming Support On Kickstarter

ArcadeMan Re:Already in it (136 comments)

I'd like to see a bigger, super-widescreen version of this thing. Even with only 64 colours, with the same DPI it would be nice for dynamic arcade cabinet marquees.

Hell, make them ultra-big and give us the ability to free-form cut three sides and the length of the side with the controller and we could have full-side artwork cut to the profile of the cabinet, too.

What I wonder is, how much would it cost at those sizes.

Amazon Files Patent For Mobile 3D Printing Delivery Trucks

ArcadeMan Re:There would be difficulties (98 comments)

What if we put the 3D printers and the CNCs on a cloud? The puffiness of the cloud would absorb the shocks and allow the hardware to - what do you mean, it's not that kind of cloud?

ArcadeMan Re:Why Mobile? (98 comments)

But even then, it would make more sense to partner up with FedEx, UPS and others to have the manufacturing hardware at the hubs.

Pebble Time Smartwatch Receives Overwhelming Support On Kickstarter

ArcadeMan Re:Already in it (136 comments)

What I would really like to see if the same colour e-paper available as an SPI-driven module for the maker community (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc).

After watching the Pebble Time video on Kickstarter, I'm wondering why we haven't heard of any advances on colour e-paper in such a long time. The previous colour e-paper displays had weak, almost pastel-like, washed-out colours and had a slow refresh but this new display seems to have amazingly rich colours and a really fast refresh speed.

A friend of mine once got killed by a truck. He got better after a while, but still. I demand that FedEx stops using trucks at once!

Obama Vetoes Keystone XL Pipeline Bill

ArcadeMan Re:BS aside, is the K-XL a good thing or not? (429 comments)

Personally I wish the bitumen benefited Canadians and gas would drop below $5 a gallon.

That's never going to happen because we use the metric system.

Pebble Time released to overwhelming support on Kickstarter

ArcadeMan Forget the watch (1 comments)

The big news is the really fast colour e-paper display! I don't care if it's limited to 64 colours, where can we get that as a tiny PCB for Arduinos, etc?

No way is debit card taking 45 seconds or more. In a Canadian grocery store the average is around 15 seconds.
