The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don't Need One

KIFulgore Re:iPad is a luxury? (298 comments)

Windows Phone 8.1, Lumia 920, no contract here. $200 bought and paid for. Does everything I need including Internet, GPS, photos, OneDrive sync, all the business apps I need, and most of the popular apps I don't need. And calls! Dad has the Lumia 635 which does all of the same things, just a little slower with an ok camera, for $70. For most people, a $700 phone is a luxury.

KIFulgore Qualia? (129 comments)

"In other words, there is nothing that living things do that cannot be understood from the point of view that they are made of atoms acting according to the laws of physics."

Many philosophers would disagree with that.

Carmack: Next-Gen Console Games Will Still Aim For 30fps

KIFulgore Re:Detail (230 comments)

I would rather have half the detail at 60 FPS. I perceive a huge difference in 30 vs 60 FPS, yet I notice very little difference in graphic quality for systems with double the graphics horsepower. For me, faster graphics hardware is producing diminishing returns in visual quality but the framerate is very noticeable.

My laptop has an 8600M and has some overheating issues.

"Self-Healing" NAND Flash Memory That Can Survive Over 100 Million Cycles

KIFulgore Re:High temp but low energy (76 comments)

That's a good point... I've read a lot of comments from people freaking out about being able to bring these on a plane.

I was once boarding a plane and accidentally scuffed my feet across the carpet. I brushed my hand by someone else and triggered a static arc that must have been close to 50,000 degrees. The plane was still able to take off. True story.

Carbon Emissions 'Will Defer Ice Age'

KIFulgore He did it! (347 comments)

One thing's for certain: whether coastal cities are under 20 feet of water or up to their asses in ice 2000 years from now, there will still be politicians pointing at each other over whose fault it is.

IRS Eyeballing Virtual World Tax Policies

KIFulgore Re:Bigger Problems Then Taxes (226 comments)

Good insight -- I certainly would. You can deduct just about anything you can reasonably justify as a business expense. I deduct my cable bill and computer equipment as business expenses for my home office.
