New "Crescent Bay" VR Headset Revealed and Demo'd At Oculus Connect

Osgeld Re:Slashdot Hate Machine (37 comments)

no technology except the 20 years of old technology

VR has not gotten smaller or more responsive in 20 years, inf act its gotten larger and heavier than it was in the late 90's and the only improvement is resolution and source material

when a new, exciting technology is stagnated so long to the point its MOVING BACKWARDS, then there is a fundamental problem with the technology that is not worth getting all happy pants about, in fact its a 100% target of hate

why did a pair of I glasses in 1998 weigh half as much as current tech, have the same response time and COST less using state of the art screen tech for the time, and why do you expect me to be excited that the current tech weighs MORE, and cost more than both the set I had in the late 90's but also the set I had in the EARLY 90's

great we went from 480P tft lcd's to 1080P tft lcd's but it cost more and is heavier than what was available at EB games 25 years ago!

Why You Can't Manufacture Like Apple

Osgeld Re:What happened to DFM? (298 comments)

agreed, you can have 100,000 CNC machines, doesnt matter if your design is so complex that it cant be made in an effecent and cost effective way

you want a hand made rolls for tens of millions of people, something has to give, in thecase of consumer products its quality and people, bought a tv within the last 10 years, if you did you probably have bought 2-3

meanwhile my parents CRT RCA finally gave up... after being in service since 1990

Why You Can't Manufacture Like Apple

Osgeld Re:Dont forget! (298 comments)

not all, I hate how all tech companies get lumped in with consumer crap production as if that is the only thing being produced in the world that is tech, or even electronic

I happen to work for one, we beat the Chinese every single day in quality and output, but we dont make crappy ass phones that are worthless a year down the road

What To Expect With Windows 9

Osgeld Re:Just now they're getting virtual desktops? (541 comments)

yea I always found it funny that *nix systems had as many desktops as I wanted, but nothing worth running on them, windows had all the software I wanted to run, but constantly ran out of space (not counting desktops.exe)
