John Carmack On RAGE For iOS/Android
"3. 60 Hz is smoother then 30 Hz, (yes there are people that can tell)"
The whole thing about certain frame rates being un-seeable is total crap. I spent a lot of time with the Source engine playing games with frame rate monitoring on.
You can definitely see the difference. What I have witnessed is the true maxing out of frame rates. Basically the frame rate gets smoother and smoother up until about 100 or 120, where the speed of frames causes everything to move in fast motion.
All of those people claiming that 70 or 90 FPS is unnoticeable have not actually done any experiments.
China Embargos Rare Earth Exports To Japan
Actually, the Japanese were horribly cruel to the Chinese.
Fifty Meter Asteroid Might Hit Earth In 2098
Are we *really* still talking about potential asteroid collisions as though it's quite possible to happen?
Didn't any of you hear of project Deep Impact? The alleged asteroid material extraction and analysis mission?
Come on. Project Deep Impact, named after the movie?!! ROFL nt at secrecy.
The impact from the probe altered the trajectory of the asteroid.
Texas Opens Inquiry Into Google Search Rankings
I fail to see why Google's ads shouldn't be given priority over competitors in its search listings.
Just what is so wrong with Google's services appearing above other listings in their search results?
Researchers Zero In On Protein That Destroys HIV
I am sad to inform you that despite your Catholic roots, condoms are an excellent way to keep oneself from getting HIV (and other STDs).
I myself have suffered from the problem you are experiencing.
Try a magnum size.
Steam Prompts OS X Graphics Update
HAHA! The supposed master of graphics gets an epic fail for driver support.
Did I mention they've been putting this hardware into their computers for awhile and still haven't supported 3d graphics properly?
NCsoft Sued For Making Lineage II 'Too Addictive'
OMFG how does this shit even get processed?
EVE Player Loses $1,200 Worth of Game Time In-Game
Actually, the player lost $1200 REAL DOLLARS worth of in-game items! Eve is a game with real-world cash currency where items have a real cash value!
Study Says Your Personality Doesn't Change After 1st Grade
I'd just like to point out a SLIGHT oversight.
Puberty. Personality changes.
BAM. Done. So much for the 1'st grade being the last step of personality development.
FTC Introduces New Orders For Intel; No Bundling
Haha it's good to see corrupt business practices get the smackdown.
Why NASA's New Video Game Misses the Point
Nasa should instead make a video game dedicated to message board spam/trolling and include random images of my penis.
That would make an excellent game.
Whoever submitted that article practically wrote a book itself in the description! It must have taken hours.
Obama Sets End of Iraq Combat For August 31st
I can't speak as though I've lived there, but I've visited and the healthcare service was excellent.
My father was having a tacacardia problem (out of control heart rate) and they took care of him very well. They even made him stay longer to watch over him. And he was a FOREIGNER.
Hospitals over here give you the boot as soon as they possibly can.
Electric Car Subsidies As Handouts For the Rich
They think that developing new technology, even if it is subsidized, is going to bring prices down?!
I don't think so. It'll drive up the MPGs, but the price will still be expensive. What kind of company is going to discount brand new tech?
1-in-1,000 Chance of Asteroid Impact In ... 2182?
I do hope you all are aware that "Project: Deep Impact" was probably a secret mission to stop a potential asteroid collision.
So don't get too excited about any potential asteroid collisions. We already have the capability to thwart such a menace, and have already done so.
All further speculation is wasted... er, finger movements.
Porn Sites Still Exposed In China
I guess they think all those political dissidents will be too busy masturbating to form any protests.
WSJ's Mossberg Calls For a Tougher Broadband Plan
WOOHOO SOMEONE FINALLY GETS IT! Hopefully we'll all be running on at least 10 megabits in the next few years (did I hear someone say Japan has over 50 megabits standard?)!
Zynga Investment May Herald Google Games
I think Google has royally fucked up this time.
WTF were they thinking handing 200 mil to a bunch of shady developers like them? Idiots.
China Censors HIV/AIDS Awareness Documentary
Those frikkin' Chinese will censor ANYTHING that makes them look bad.
Our blood banks were tainted until what, the late 80's? We at least can talk about it.
MIT & Harvard On Brain-Inspired A.I. Vision
Who knows if Nvidia OR AMD (think: Fusion) has been funding this research?
That part about magic cost reduction sounds a little funny.
Also, I think it should be said that a decent single core graphics card might cost $150 vs. one of those power-wise full featured $300 PS3's with the Cell processor (not the mention a stream-processor carrying Nvidia/ATI video card).
