AMD To Launch a Windows 8.1 Gaming Tablet

Noitatsidem I really don't get it (119 comments)

I don't get why companies insist on trying to make gaming tablets, sure they might be fine for angrybirds, but I think you'd be hardpressed to find any hardcore gamer looking to buy a tablet to game on. Maybe there is a target audience out there that isn't imaginary, but I just know I don't see it.

Dmitry Itskov Wants To Help You Live Forever Via an Android Avatar

Noitatsidem Re:Copies are not you! (383 comments)

I have a scar on my leg, when I got it, sure that made me realize "hey I should be more careful with sharp objects around me," but by no means did it change who I was. Similarly, metal skin wouldn't change who I am, it would merely change the fact that I no longer have flesh - and that I don't need to be quite as careful around sharp objects as I do now.

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You

Noitatsidem Re:Samsung Galaxy S2 (124 comments)

That could be the wrong variation of it, there are about 20 of them after all (okay, not quite). But yeah, the GS2 is definitely still getting updates.

Lol, tell that to the people complaining about the whole "X stopped working after iTunes made me install update Y" which has been plaguing iOS devices the past few months.

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You

Noitatsidem Re:Not as happy with CM as I could be. (124 comments)

I've had nothing but good experiences with even the more recent CM 10.1 nightlies on my Galaxy S3, the RC builds are definitely stable enough for day to day use (at least on the GS3, although I don't see why the Note would suffer from any major bugs this far along in development - I used to have similar issues to what you described with the rebooting during calls, for me at least these were resolved long ago).

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You

Noitatsidem Re:Will it actually install this time? (124 comments)

I've had nothing but great experiences using Odin. Of course, I've also grown to love the ROM Manager app, which allows me to keep CWM up to date (I got the premium version for CWM touch, which I've grown to love)

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You

Noitatsidem Re:Would it kill you to define "Cyanogenmod"? (124 comments)

I agree with you, and thanks for the feedback on my first article. It's really about asking yourself "what level of understanding do I expect the reader to have right off the bat, and how can I concisely put in possibly useful information into the article?" I've found this to be an enlightening experience, and look forward to posting articles in the future, and learning from the mistakes I've made as I go.

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 Starts To Roll Out To Devices Near You

Noitatsidem Re:And on a well-edited nerd news site (124 comments)

I actually agree with you, since I wrote the article I consider this to be good feedback, in retrospect I should have described briefly what Cyanogenmod is, aside from some formatting changes my post was pretty much unedited. Granted, one can probably figure out what Cyanogenmod is through the context (talking about android releases and whatnot), it should be made clearer for people who don't, or wouldn't know what it is (say iOS/WP users). So thanks for the feedback, I intend on being more clear for future articles I write.

Demonoid Domain Names Up For Grabs

Noitatsidem Re:sad to see (293 comments)

You've got the order wrong, there will be a lot less pirating when companies realize that DRM is what's killing their sales. DRM only hurts the people who buy the software, not the people who pirate it. Really, it's the pirates that are getting superior software (due to removed DRM), and they're getting it for free. There's no way you can logically argue that you can put an end to DRM by eliminating piracy. If you eliminate DRM though, it's much easier to end piracy.

DRM doesn't protect companies from pirates (and companies who believe it does are idiotic), no matter how good of a system they come up with eventually there will be a way to bypass it. The reality of the situation is that developing DRM is a complete waste of resources, because people will get past it - so the cost of developing DRM really just cuts into their profits more.

tl;dr: You have it backwards, end DRM to (help) stop Piracy. Also DRM is idiotic in general.

Problem is a low spec PC isn't designed for gaming. Games aren't optimized as well for PCs as they are for consoles.

Cyanogenmod 10.1 RC1 starts to roll out to devices near you!

Noitatsidem Noitatsidem writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Noitatsidem (1701520) writes "Good news for Cyanogenmod users, according to their blog it looks like 10.1 is nearing its stable release.

We haven’t used the ‘Release Candidate’ nomenclature since the ICS days, but we feel the 10.1 branch is quickly approaching the point where a ‘final’ build is due. To prepare for that eventuality, RC1 builds for CyanogenMod 10.1.0 are now landing on our servers! This will be one of (if not the last) milestone releases before a 10.1.0 is pushed out. These builds will appear as they complete the build process and, as always, you can download the builds via get.cm!

Android Police speculates that this is due in part to the rumored release announcement of Android 4.3 given at Google I/O 2013 which is taking place in (now) less than one week. Looks like the Android community will have a lot to talk about in coming days!"
