Apache OpenOffice Reaches 100 Million Downloads. Now What?

DrGamez Re:What now? 1 billion! (285 comments)

If you don't think Excel is widely used for all sorts of meaningless crap across a wide array of corporate and non-corporate jobs you're being willfully ignorant.

Steam's Most Popular Games

DrGamez Re:Easily solved premise (117 comments)

So the EULAs before that state you only have a license to play/use the software - that still counts as "owning" it?

Ubisoft Hands Out Nexus 7 Tablets At a Game's Press Event

DrGamez Bribing Journalists = Bad Game (43 comments)

The game will be bad, or is being completely oversold.

I'm trying to think of a case where this level of PR blitz/buying people off has ever resulted in a truly "good" game.

Netflix Gets What It Pays For: Comcast Streaming Speeds Skyrocket

DrGamez Re:I Pay (325 comments)

Perhaps the issue is weak analogies are called such for a reason.

Netflix Gets What It Pays For: Comcast Streaming Speeds Skyrocket

DrGamez Re:huh? (325 comments)

The ads, or how bad Hulu is, is completely unrelated to the topic WaywardGeek was bringing up.

I assume they meant to ask, what happens with Netflix 2, when there is some new streaming service that's even BETTER than Netflix in every way. Will they also have to go through the same growing pains, eventually forking over cash to get access to the "full internet"?

Blaming Steam for the program's fault due to circumstance?

Blaming Steam for outdated retail distribution of PC games?

Do Free-To-Play Games Get a Fair Shake?

DrGamez Re:Debunking Myths about F2P (181 comments)

Just to clarify Point b:

A majority of the money goes to Valve on these, but a good chunk (25%? not certain) DOES go to the creator. Valve is the only company doing F2P correctly but that isn't to say they aren't making money hand over fist.

Western Digital 'MyCloud' Is Down 5 Days and Counting

DrGamez Re:When should you abandon a service for error? (127 comments)

I am not sure if ACs like you exist solely to create a "whoosh" sound.

Between having to "out-car-analogy" each other, and just complete "not getting the joke" comments, I'd a bit amazed Slashdot is looked at as a place of intelligent discussion most days :(

More Than 1 In 4 Car Crashes Involve Cellphone Use

DrGamez Driving is Boring (367 comments)

Until this is addressed, we will find some way to look at our phones.

It's an awful situation but it really is just going to be a fact of life. We are NOT going to put away our phones until they are physically disabled from working while driving a vehicle. Pandora's Box is already open here.

Xbox One Reputation System Penalizes Gamers Who Behave Badly

I'm glad someone corrected this story. The kid cheated, then lied to his mom, who then (unknowingly) lied to Microsoft.

DrGamez Re:Kickstarter is not an investment (535 comments)

Has it?
I mean it was literal /hours/ when you made this post, after the announcement, and already you can state that the entire environment has drastically changed?

Can you please fill us in on the details, or is this just conjecture because "facebook sux"?

(I do not deny that facebook does indeed suck, but let's try to tamper down on these VR IS OVER!!! posts because of a sale)

Facebook Buying Oculus VR For $2 Billion

DrGamez Re: Farmville! (535 comments)

I would also post uninformed baseless guesses as AC as well.

Remember your first hard drive?
Remember your first internet?

If you don't think we will be able to capture that much data in your lifetime then I hope you are really old, or really naive.

Minecraft Creator Halts Plans For Oculus Version Following Facebook Acquisition

DrGamez Re:"In discussions" (300 comments)

I mean I get that it's an "important backer" (what percentage of $2.4M is $10k?) pulling out, but there really has been no discussion or public planning of Minecraft to the OR.

I don't like Facebook owning OR, but at the same time I don't like people treating notch like some god of indies. I guess it was unfair to ask why this was "news" worthy.

I should be asking: why does anyone care what notch thinks about a device he has no input on other than: "yo fuck facebook"?

You should get some award for this comment. I'm wondering if you're michelcolman posting as AC just to point out the fact that there are idiots who still think like this.
