Microsoft Launches Outlook For Android and iOS

NoZart Re:storing my email credentials on an USA server (105 comments)

good point. I always set those to "not back up", but i guess in reality it doesn't matter. Exchange credentials are a step closer to damage than WiFi, though...

re: "skype or phone" - dialog. You only have to choose once - given that you check "always do this" This is the system letting you set the default app for a task.

Ask Slashdot: When and How Did Europe Leapfrog the US For Internet Access?

NoZart Re:The Sad Truth (415 comments)

Austrian here. For the most part i agree, but i think there is more:
I am not really good at understanding how politics work, but i think having lots of smaller states with localized laws and different political parties (as in every state has their own parties, plus more than two) puts a bit of a dent into lobbying. This forces corporation to fight their wars via the customers instead of just buying a representative to write laws for them. Which is not to say there is no lobbying here (at the moment it's quite visible with big tobacco vs. vaping), but it seems to be less effective.

Also, europe being the younger collective means we are behind on lots of stuff. But we are quickly catching up: rights get diminished left and right, telcos now work across multiple countries, pseudo monopolies are on the rise. I am a customer with UPC, a multinational that bought our local cable provider Chello and local ADSL provider inode. Service quality and quality of the connection both have dropped significantly since then...

As for the citizens/customers: here in Austria we have multiple organisations that fight for consumer rights, and they do a pretty good job - i don't hear a lot about such things from america, so are there none or are they just powerless in america?

NoZart Re:Some android too (336 comments)

Not an iphone user, but from what i understand, all pictures get "synched" right? So wouldn't a pic sent from an android phone to my iphone get synched, too?

I think they perfectly "get it". Remember, as soon advertising enters the picture, we are no customers anymore, we are the product.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:Recent allegations... (210 comments)

The mod does not "adjust it" - it brings out the bad DoF. Gameplay-wise, it's better without the mod, because then, the DoF is only in cutscenes where it doesn't interfere with gameplay.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:Watchdogs graphics and gameplay (210 comments)

Controls on foot are ok, driving is way to sensitive. Gameplay-wise, it's a GTA IV clone with a little less diversity in its side-quests and one-button hacking of stuff as a twist. Content wise, the potential for a great infowars/surveilance conspiracy is wasted and replaced with a standard crime scene.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:Recent allegations... (210 comments)

While Ubisoft really does suck in many regards, at least they acknowledged one factor with the grahics: If you enable the "E3 version" of it, it becomes a worse game gameplay-wise. That DoF is horrendous for aiming at distant things.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:because it fucking is (210 comments)

Also, i tried the mod that supposedly allows the awesome graphics from the Trailers. And while being beautiful, they suck gameplay wise. Having enemies being blurred out at a distance when you try to shoot them is a no Go. The implementation of DoF was just written for the trailers and nothing else.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:because it fucking is (210 comments)

With PC at a lan party everyone has their own screen so far better multi-player gaming.

Depends on how you see it. If you are a Progaymer that sees games as a way to legthen his e-dick, sure. But Singlescreen Multiplayer is way more conductive to communication and fun. Whenever i attend PC only lans, it's an ambience like a graveyard. As soon there are Consoles involved, you get to hear a bunch of people having fun.

Gaming consoles of course do suit a particular IQ range of the video gaming market, there is not doubt about that and I'll stop there.

For someone "obviously" in a higher IQ bracket, you sure steep to low levels.

Watch Dogs Graphics and Gameplay: PC Vs. Xbox One, With Surprising Results

NoZart Re:Unless you've spent $300 on a GPU... (210 comments)

Diablo 3. Graphics may a have been a bit downsized, but the controls and menus actually improved vs. the PC version....
But yeah, thats about the only one that comes to mind out of the thousands of other ports that sucked.
