Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

WebmasterNeal Re:It costs power (264 comments)

I agree. That's why I prefer phones with removable storage. I have a 64gb card in mine with all my music on it.

John Carmack Left id Software Because He Couldn't Do VR Work There

WebmasterNeal Re:Thing is (146 comments)

Lol, this is soooooo true. No matter how great the rest of RAGE was, this was bad enough that the game was unplayable.

IDC: PC Shipments Decline Worse Than Forecasted, No Recovery Expected

WebmasterNeal Re:Good (393 comments)

Every friend I know who games has built their own computer in the last couple years. If anything I've seen this trend increase rather than decrease. As a whole, less people are buying desktops but gamers are sticking with it.

John Carmack Leaves id Software

WebmasterNeal Re:Buying iD was a massive mistake (154 comments)

RAGE was a failure in my eyes. The texture pop-in bug is extremely annoying. I'm sure the rest of the game was fun but when textures aren't rendered properly when you're moving around the level, it's too distracting to even enjoy the game.

Is Mimas Hiding Pac-Man?

WebmasterNeal Re:Worst... (99 comments)

I agree, I had to read several times before it made any sense. Looks like a copypasta from the original site.

Could Colorblindness Cure Be Morally Wrong?

WebmasterNeal Re:The rich become a different species (981 comments)

"Rich people can afford to extend their lifespans, make themselves beautiful, smarter, and so on."
Rich people can already do this and do. It's capitalism at it's finest. Without this reward, there would be no reason to try to get rich and we'd all do the bare minimum.
We could probably look at this from another angle, such as what if a child is born with AIDS and we have a cure for that.

Microsoft Previews IE9 — HTML5, SVG, Fast JS

WebmasterNeal A Generation Behind (473 comments)

Like prior IE releases they're still playing catchup and not moving ahead of the competition. Webkit & Mozilla have support border-radius for quite some time now and Opera, I believe, has also started to supported it. Then there's SVG which the others have supported for a very long time now.

This is no different than when IE8 was released and IE finally supported CSS 2.1 when all the other browser vendors had.

Webkit, specifically Safari, has been leading the way in CSS innovation & Javascript performance with each release with Chrome slightly behind. Firefox & Opera seem to be battling it out for third place and IE, of course is always an entire generation behind.

BioShock 2's First DLC Already On Disc

WebmasterNeal Hot Coffee Anyone? (466 comments)

Ah, if the hidden content would have been the Hot Coffee portion of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas there would be a much different reaction to this. I guess its not the first time a product has been shipped 110% complete.

Accidental Wii Suicide

WebmasterNeal Re:Suicide? (1343 comments)

It was a Glock, which the commenter below is correct, Glocks (at least the ones I've seen) don't have a typical safety other than the one that's built into the trigger.

Funeral Being Held Today For IE6

WebmasterNeal Shameless Plug (194 comments)

I like the idea but it all seems like a shameless covert plug for "Aten Design Group, a design firm in Denver, Colorado"

YouTube To Kill IE6 Support On March 13

WebmasterNeal Most Workplaces Block YouTube (282 comments)

Most companies I've worked at block access to YouTube so there really isn't much incentive to convert companies from IE6 to something else. Some of the other Google apps may have more of an effect on this though. I feel that most IE users only upgrade their personal PCs when they buy a new computer so it's only a matter of time until we have all of those updated as most of the computers in the last several years probably haven't come with IE6 installed.

Firefox 3.5 Now the Most Popular Browser Worldwide

WebmasterNeal I added another FF user today (422 comments)

I helped a family friend setup their new computer (which had Windows 7 on it) and the first thing I did was download Firefox 3.5, installed the IE Aero theme and removed any references to IE I could find. The nice thing with this theme is very few non-technical users notice a difference other than their browser seems to load pages faster.

Best Way To Clear Your Name Online?

WebmasterNeal Create A Website Promoting Yourself (888 comments)

I think where you're going with this is when somebody google's your name, this is the first result. Why not create a personal site, say yourname.com and give people the side of yourself you'd prefer them to see?

Microsoft Employees Caught Using Mac/Firefox

WebmasterNeal WebmasterNeal writes  |  about 6 years ago

WebmasterNeal writes "After reviewing my Google Analytics reports, I discovered several employees from Microsoft's campus in Redmond, Washington browsing my website. After further investigation I noticed some of them were using rival open source competitor Firefox or even worse one was using a Mac. The irony."
