Microsoft Unveils Xbox One

MemoryDragon Re:Always on internet? (782 comments)

The always on info came rather late, according to several news sites, you must have a connection every once in 24 hourse and kinect has to be on as soon as the console is on, games must be enabled online once via code. This thing is DOA if you ask me.

Microsoft's "New Coke" Moment?

MemoryDragon Re:New Poke (786 comments)

Actually it sucks, because Metro generally sucks if you have to use it with a mouse. It might be fine for a touch based interface though.

Windows 8.1 May Restore Boot-To-Desktop, Start Button

MemoryDragon Re:Windows exodus? Really? (628 comments)

The problem is not that Win8 is simplistic, it simply has a lousy UI and is definitely a step down usabilitywise from Windows 8.

LucasArts Employees Hold Wake & Eulogy; Vader Still Roams

MemoryDragon Re:Underperforming Division gets cut by new owners (170 comments)

I see it also like that. There was nothing coming out of Lucasarts except mediocre Star Wars tie ins for decades.
The Lucasarts of the old with great games died a long time ago.

Apple Faces Lawsuit For Retina MacBook Pro 'Ghosting' Issue

MemoryDragon A few corrections (195 comments)

I have been following the thread on the Apple Support Forums for quite a while, there are some infos missing.

a) The thread was reset viewwise at 600.000 views hence the actual number of views is much higher
b) Only LG displays seem to show the issue, also affected by this issue are the 13 inch retina macbook pros and the new iMacs. Apple did not change their behavior regarding their supply chain even after months of knowing they had an issue on their hands.
c) Apple seems to run a checkerboards test which basically tells if the image retention is bad enough that it warrants a display exchange. So if you have a certain amount of burn in your changes are high that you wont get your display replaced as Apple states this is totally normal behavior for an IPS panel. Whether Apple is right in this or not I do not know.
d) Apple still is silent on this issue, they probably simply want to sit this out instead of offering a full recall, given that they seem to still sell lots of machines with LG panels which show ghosting indicates that they do not have to many options due to having burned their bridges with Samsung.
e) The thread does not indicate on how many machines are affected, but given the huge number of posts a lot of them.

Computer Games That Defined RPGs In the 1980s

MemoryDragon Re:Some RPGs I remember... (350 comments)

Actually the beaking bread was in Gothic2 maybe also in Risen but I am not sure. The Gothic series and later Risen definitely is a successor to Ultima 7 also add Arx Fatalis to the list of Ultima successors using similar ideas.

Apple Launches New Legal Attack On Samsung

MemoryDragon Re:The voice search is hilarious (490 comments)

Actually the voice search in google works like that, call bla bla, drive me to bla bla... just the way siri works. So google had it before Apple even filed the patent.

Apple Launches New Legal Attack On Samsung

MemoryDragon Re:The voice search is hilarious (490 comments)

So what the search itself was done in that manner way before apple brought Siri out.
There is a video from i think 2010 or so, where the search feature was demonstrated in conjunction with the routing websearching adress book search.

Apple Launches New Legal Attack On Samsung

MemoryDragon Re:Apple is anticompetitive at its core. (490 comments)

Except that all of the mentioned patents are bull**** it is even worse that Android had voice search 1-2 years before Apple. Same goes for slide to unlock, a dutch court just threw apple out of the court after Samsung showed prior art regarding slide to unlock. What apple here simply does is landgrabbing and then suing people left and right and sometimes even people who have contracts with the original landowners.
