The 5-Year Console Cycle Is Dead

Martze Re:Hopefully "graphics" are the new dpi or megapix (422 comments)

A "gigabit" is a perfectly valid measure of data (it's an eighth of a gigabyte), and the pronunciation "jigga" for that particular SI prefix is obscure but not incorrect. It typcially measures data transfer rates but it could measure other things as well.

Toshiba To Launch No-Glasses 3D TV This Year

Martze Re:Stereoscopic, Not 3D (218 comments)

3D has been used to describe wireframe rendering, polygon rendering, parallax, and about a dozen different technologies. Every time display technology improves, they're going to call it 3D. The term is so overloaded as to be meaningless. I still remember Sony saying the PS3 was going to be 4D with a straight face. That's the sort of ludicrous irony that makes the situation bearable to me.

Sony Continues To Lose Ground In Mobile Gaming

Martze Re:A general criticism of handhelds. (202 comments)
