TandooriC Re:Cue the jokes (246 comments)

One of my high school girlfriends had the idea to use a sandwich bag and a hair tie as a prophylactic in the absence of a condom one Saturday afternoon. Hope you weren't her brother.

The Ancient Computers Powering the Space Race

TandooriC State of the art (253 comments)

I see everyone saying that old technology is 'sufficient' to do the job and that it is reliable. If reliability is such an issue, don't we have redundancy for that? Isn't anyone thinking of the potential of having state of the art technology? Use the processing power for the AI or something.

Why Has No One Made a Great Gaming Phone?

TandooriC Do you think we can (303 comments)

Play and talk at the same time? Don't need to pause the game you're on, just hit a button somewhere to answer it. As long as the games does not have voice recognition then we're fine. Still... there is a risk of blurting out conversations in the game especially while playing RPG. :P
