Psaakyrn Re:3d hype. (218 comments)

It's just like explosions. Except that explosions often require more creative effort to make them look good.

Micro-Transactions Coming To Team Fortress 2 Via Steam Wallet

Psaakyrn Re:A Well-Executed Plan (161 comments)

I'm going to jump in early on this one. If you actually read the fucking article, "Walker says everything they're selling will still be obtainable by playing the game, other than a few cosmetic items."

Nintendo 3DS To Be Released In February/March

Psaakyrn Re:Are they serious? (131 comments)

Greatest nation my feep. Greatest liability maybe. Your nation practically caused the whole depression two years ago. (though admittedly your European allies are also liable for their own depression one year ago as well.)

Nintendo 3DS To Be Released In February/March

Psaakyrn Re:Are they serious? (131 comments)

It's $300 only because your economy sucks. Improve your economy (and thus your exchange rate) by that time, and you'll get a better deal.

Researcher Builds Machines That Daydream

Psaakyrn Morality core (271 comments)

I guess it is a good idea to build in emotions and that morality core before it starts flooding the Enrichment Center with a deadly neurotoxin.

Interpol Chief's Identity Spoofed On Facebook

Psaakyrn Re:Hmmm (64 comments)

There is a solution. Too bad it's something which not many would like. The solution is to absolve all anonymity on the Internet, give everyone a biometric UID at birth, and be permanently associated with it. All interactions must go through a central server which ascertains that you are the correct person. Anyone found trying to commit identity fraud will be marked as treasonous, and given an extremely heavy penalty to dissuade such fraud. Needless to say it would be the end of Anonymous, along a host of other issues. But you would remove the majority of identity spoofing.

Interpol Chief's Identity Spoofed On Facebook

Psaakyrn Re:Hmmm (64 comments)

Too bad names aren't exactly the unique thing they are, not is it possible to determine what future site/media will be the next big thing, nor are all social media/networking sites free.

Psaakyrn Re:Web censorship at its best (322 comments)

You got it the other way around. It's the US Government which has strong backers, like the MPAA.

Google Publishes Censorship Map

Psaakyrn Re:Singapore search traffic halved in June (154 comments)

I don't believe Singapore censors search results, though the resultant linked pages may be. Might just be a coincidence.

Social Media Can Help You Fake Your Own Death

Psaakyrn Re:Meanwhile, here in New Zealand... (146 comments)

They've all that, yet this happened in the 1980s yet only caught wind in 2005... I think you're perfectly safe there. :p

Simulating Galaxies With Supercomputers

Psaakyrn Re:Fidelity of Mathematical Models (120 comments)

Technically it would depend on the properties of the universe. If it's turing complete, we can already simulate it given enough time and/or space. Since we're not doign a simulation of the whole timeframe of the universe but only it's beginning, time (and hence space) is not an issue.

Dell's 'Dual Personality' Laptop

Psaakyrn Re:Doing it wrong (126 comments)

Alternatively there's also the dual-touchscreen concept, which solves the "many movable parts" problem, and puts the "keyboard" section to good use when you use it as a tablet instead.

Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta Released

Psaakyrn Psaakyrn writes  |  about 4 years ago

Psaakyrn (838406) writes "If you want to develop for the underdog to the mobile scene, here's your chance.

(Yes, I know it's Microsoft. But Apple and Microsoft have essentially swapped roles in terms for the mobile scene, so yeah)

"The term “Beta” is understood to mean that things are close to being finished. Well, that’s what we mean anyway. This Beta release represents the near final version of the tools for building applications and games for Windows Phone 7.

Since the initial CTP release of the tools just this March, the Windows Phone Developer Tool CTP has been widely embraced by the community, and they have shown what’s possible on our new development platform.

It’s time to get serious about building the actual apps and games for Windows Phone 7 that consumers will be looking for starting this holiday season.""
