Stormwatch Re:Unless you've spent $300 on a GPU... (209 comments)

Then your company was rich. Not the regular user's typical monitor.

If you were rich. The typical monitors back then were still 15-inch non-flat CRTs.

How can that be "typical", when most monitors at the time did up to 1024x768?

Stormwatch Re:$300 for a GPU (209 comments)

Indeed. And in this review, the guy explains how to build a solid gaming PC for $500, same price as the quite weaker Xbox One (before they got rid of the Kinect).

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

Stormwatch Re:Unless you've spent $300 on a GPU... (209 comments)

What was the typical resolution for playing games at the time? The Dreamcast did 640x480, and it looked fine with a VGA box or an S-Video cable.

Climate Change Skeptic Group Must Pay Damages To UVA, Michael Mann

Stormwatch Re:"Thus ends "Climategate." Hopefully." (497 comments)

He didn't say Nye is not a scientist, but that climatology is not Nye's field (it is mechanical engineering, actually).

Watch Dogs is just a shitty port. But from what I heard, the rather modest (sub-$150) GTX 650Ti will handle Titanfall better than the Xbox One.

Apple Hires Away TAG Heuer's VP of Global Sales

Stormwatch Re:What's next (67 comments)

That is one of the few exceptions, along with certain colorful iPhone and iPod models. Everything else is boring metal slabs.

Apple Hires Away TAG Heuer's VP of Global Sales

Stormwatch Re:What's next (67 comments)

Apple makes virtually nothing themselves - they design, and use a slew of Asian contract manufacturers to build their products

Isn't that the case with pretty much every PC maker out there?

Anyway, Apple these days makes me sad. I like OS X, but I don't really like their hardware anymore. Remember the original iMac, or the sunflower one? The clamshell iBook? The G4 Cube? They had such interesting and unique designs. Their current stuff, though... most of what they have is some slight variation of a featureless slab. So refined, so minimalistic, so elegant, so chic, so skull-numbingly boring.

Hiring a non-computer executive? What's next, will they hire one from a soft drink company?

How Apple Can Take Its Headphones To the Next Level

Stormwatch Re:sensors (196 comments)

Beats would be the wrong company, if all Apple wanted was a headphone maker. But they also intend to build a music streaming service, which Beats had, with all the licensing deals already in place.

YouTube Introduces 60fps Video Support

Stormwatch Re:60 fps? (157 comments)

Yes, movies are shot at 24FPS. Isn't that horrible? We have sound and color, but we're still using that same piss-poor framerate from the silent movie era!
