Study Finds That "Extreme Gamers" Play 48 Hours a Week

EspressoFreak International Demographics? (272 comments)

If the study is only done in the US, then I don't think it do the name "Extreme Gamers" justice. Come to Asia, hell, go to Korea's "internet cafes", and you will find people who never leave the place. There are a lot more local mmorpg games here than there are in the States, and those are the type of games that suck your life away. And they are all PC games too, which will debunk the more console than pc claim.

Google vs. China — Who's Got the Most To Lose?

EspressoFreak Re:who loses? (232 comments)

the Chinese people.

and people who are in China for whatever reason...
Plus, a lot of the local Chinese already know the kind of crap that the government is pulling (censorship, propaganda, oppression, human rights violation, etc.). So by censoring websites, especially good websites, will only further infuriate its people.

StarCraft II Closed Beta Begins

EspressoFreak Re:Lost my interest (268 comments)

See, some of us have these things called "principles" and "values", and we stand up for them even if nobody else cares.

Will you still be able to hold on to those "principles" and "values" after all your LAN pals tell you how awesome the game is?

Sony May Charge For PlayStation Network

EspressoFreak Reasonable price & improved functionality (212 comments)

Well, if the price is reasonable and they use the extra income to improve the platform features (connection speed, connectivity, etc.) and perhaps offer more free perks (game newsletter, reviews, etc.), then it will probably be worth it.

Initial Reviews of Google Wave; Neat, but Noisy

EspressoFreak Re:Yeah, it seems somewhat noisy (336 comments)

I always thought it would be nice if people in IMs could see what I'm typing, to feel more like a real conversation.

This reminds me a lot of ICQ's chat room. It was neat at first how I can see what everyone's typing in real time, but it's not so great when I become the one typing. However, most of the times I would prefer to be able to process my thoughts and perhaps check my grammar or spelling before I send it out. It's not always a good thing to be able to speak you mind and let the person on the other end to know about it simultaneously. From a reader's perspective, I would much rather read a complete thought, instead of having to wait for each word as they type. Showing that the person is currently typing is a good enough indicator that someone is trying to say something, so people won't be typing simultaneously.

"Apple, which filed complaints with both the U.S International Trade Commission and in federal court in Delaware, is seeking a ban on U.S. imports, sales or use of some HTC phones, alleging that HTC infringed on Apple's patents involving the iPhone's touch-screen user interface, hardware and software.""
