Using Multiple Forms of Media At Once Correlates With Depression, Anxiety

PopAndGame Also called "multiple-tab syndrome" (174 comments)

There was this old study on how using multiple tabs while browsing means you're depressed. It basically said girls are more normal in this regard because they just have their Facebook page open and AT MOST browse just one other website for reading. At the same time nerds were thought depressed because they couldn't keep themselves on one page but kept switching to many different pages, on tabs. Might have some truth to reality, especially if looking at the geeks I know.

Windows also has the HUGE subculture of third platform apps (and games). There's no way Microsoft would make such a huge change. It wouldn't even serve them. Remember that Microsoft sells Windows, not give it free!

Hit Game Makes £52 In First Week On Windows RT

PopAndGame Re:Sorry to be frank but what did he think (308 comments)

You're implying they do so because of some ill-guided effect. But I think it's great they support user privacy by not needlessly tracking their users.

The subject line is duplication. What does Slashdot gain from having to put two lines?

Valve Begins Listing Linux Requirements For Certain Games On Steam

PopAndGame Why would you want to game on Linux (332 comments)

As a Mac user I know the feeling, but what would you even acquire by trying to game on Linux? There is Macs for unixy world and it has better support than Linux will ever will. Of course Windows is the best platform but mostly because they have things like XNA and .NET. Microsoft has really played their game well. But why on Linux rather than Mac? While Crossover isn't supporting all the games it's at least better and many games have Mac Ports? So if you want to do both unixy world and games why not Mac?

The only good thing about this is the feeling that maybe Mac ports become more frequent too, but I'm not putting lot into that hope as far as Linux support goes.

Hit Game Makes £52 In First Week On Windows RT

PopAndGame Sorry to be frank but what did he think (308 comments)

He took a business risk trying to port the game to Windows RT and lost? Now he's crying about it? Great, yeah, it costs money to port things to new platforms. But that's why you do your research first! Hell, I'm not going around yelling how my non-existing game on Steam is selling bad!

But I know a thing or two about business and this is exactly why you research and don't cry about failed business decisions.
