PS Move Launch Date and Price Announced, Portal 2 For the PS3

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Burn your PS2 games (145 comments)

No just telling you why your ps3 sucks shit, and will suck shit until they restore what the fuck they chopped off.

But hey - do some more "research" on your "game system". I'll just play games on something that doesn't require "research".

fucking nerds.

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Burn your PS2 games (145 comments)

Hey Professor don't-get-it, I'd like to buy a system that has backwards compatibility rather than 12 skus that can't make up their mind what the fuck the product is.

You fail like Sony.

PS Move Launch Date and Price Announced, Portal 2 For the PS3

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Burn your PS2 games (145 comments)

Old PS2 stopped working. Would like to buy a new PS that doesn't fuck around with software vs hardware emu vs how many games work on either vs overpay at gamestop for a fucking console that's 4 years old or screw around with fags on ebay.

You know - actions people who aren't nerds don't do - or who have time and jobs and - heaven forbid, a life.

Research for a game system. What a product - a game system I have to research before buying. Wow - fuck you loser corporate apologist scum. Fuck off and die.

iPhone 4 Pre-Orders Wreaking Havoc On Apple Store

DeadJesusRodeo Re:So... (285 comments)

People forget that most lines are fan-parties / nerd parties / whatever. It's (almost) an ad-hoc something-con. This became particularly obvious when they started distributing food and beverages to the lines.

Best line I've been in? The PS2 launch at the Metreon Sony Playstation store in 2000. The bathroom passes which held your place in line were good for 30 minutes. Wave after wave of gamenerds invading the bars in the Metreon displacing the norms 30 minutes at a time, all day and night long. Too funny.

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Burn your PS2 games (145 comments)

Atari 2600 adapter for the 5200. Atari 7800 compatible with 2600's without adapter. You're right - they can't do today what they did nearly 30 years ago. Perish the thought. Sony is so advanced, perhaps they can do with the PS3 what they did 4 years ago. Naaaaaah.

Still ignoring my stack of PS2 titles? Watch me ignore your PS3 - at least until Grand Theft Auto Vice City comes out for it - which means, never.

For Normals, Jobs' "Retina Display" Claim May Be Fair After All

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Print Resolution (386 comments)

It'll be a while before it spreads. Even the iPad's screen size would bring the A4 processor to it's knees. And as far as what dpi designers use - that's a false statement. Designers design for whatever they output - and most of the time LPI is what we're speccing to in print - not DPI. Silkscreen could be as low as 33lpi (or less). Newsprint, 70-100lpi, Magazines 133lpi, good quality stock could go as high as 200lpi or higher.

None of those numbers have anything to do with DPI apart from the source image before it's destroyed by the screen. Since lpi limits your output, you generally did no more than 2x those numbers (1.6 before computers had decent graphics) because once you go to print, it's meaningless to have a 600dpi image if you're going to 133lpi print. It's not going to look better than 266.

And don't get me started on source size and reductions.

iPhone 4's "Retina Display" Claims Challenged

DeadJesusRodeo Re:higher res description (476 comments)

What about the distance too? Do you really stick the phone one foot from your nose to read it? I hold it nearly 1.5 to 2 feet (at LEAST) normally. My eyesight sucks too - so if I looked at something at a foot or less, I'd have to take my glasses off.

It's all marketing malarky (I worked in print, so perhaps that's a bias) but I can tell the difference between a 300dpi laser jet page, and a 1200dpi linotronic typeset piece of film. I'd call out SJ on the "eye can't see more than 300dpi" business than "the phone held at a certain angle, at a certain distance, preferably at noon, but not on a leap year, with a cat present in the room".

Get Leo Laporte involved. He's obviously onto something. Perhaps TWIT can buy him outright.

Apple Announces iPhone 4

DeadJesusRodeo Re:iAds (1184 comments)

Amusing thought from a dead and overrated comic. He obviously only worked from word of mouth and never advertised his shows or albums.

Or DID he?

But then I don't live my life according to a fucking stand-up comedian. But if you take your christ figures in the shape of a professional giggle-man, more power to you. It's your life.

Agreed?

Gizmodo Not Welcome at 2010 WWDC

DeadJesusRodeo Re:Gizmodo comments (395 comments)

Considering how they're doing at the Vatican these days, not sure that's the best example to cite.

On the other hand Chen is most certainly going to be fucked up the ass like a choir boy so perhaps you're onto something there.

Gizmodo Not Welcome at 2010 WWDC

DeadJesusRodeo Milk that bull (395 comments)

So ... Gizmodo can't provide news at the WWDC after obvious events previously, so they're plugging link-bait about their inability to provide news. And this is news - how? Why, it's Gizmodo news! But of course! (Get your news that's only news to Gizmodo, on Gizmodo!)

Urine Test For Autism

DeadJesusRodeo Holy fucking shit (228 comments)

I'm so glad I grew up before this profit-making mania to classify and treat every fucking kid who isn't "normal" and prescription drug parenting became status-quo. Wow does it suck to be a kid these days!

Seriously.

On the other hand, I can't wait for the lawsuits to fly from these over-treated chemically fucked kids when they grow up and discover Pfizer's penis up their ass. Almost makes me wish I'd become a lawyer instead.
