PS Vita Specs Announced

Zoidbot Re:It needs games! (259 comments)

PS3 had plenty of games at launch (Euro launch). The only people saying otherwise were Microsoft and their army of internet shills. The funny thing is that I actually have a brain and recall how shit the XBox360 launch lineup was. It's a shame so many Americans have selective memory and forget these things.

Google Cuts Chrome Page Load Times In Half w/ SPDY

Zoidbot HTTP1.1 Pipelining (310 comments)

I mean if someone cared about page load times, they would be using Opera, the ONLY browser to fully support and have enabled HTTP 1.1 pipelining, which provides FAR better results across FAR more sites...

The only difference of course, is Opera ASA don't have the bottomless pits of money to tell the wider world about these things. I find it curious that it's Chrome this, chrome that, nobody is talking about the MASSIVE bandwidth savings that Opera 11.10 is getting using WebP server transcoding...


12MB of browsing slashed to 3MB....

Sony's Case Against Geohot Has Been Settled

Zoidbot Re:Oh, stuff it. (469 comments)

shut up. PS3 gamers don't want hackers like that idiot ruining the system. Sony were protecting consumers, your pro-GeoHot (or more likely, pro Microsoft) comments certainly aren't.

If you want to talk about fucking over consumers, lets talk about Microsoft's "ship it anway and we can sell them a new one in a couple of years time" strategy for the Xbox360.

50m consoles sold to 25m gamers.....

Dutch Court Lifts PlayStation 3 Seizure Order

Zoidbot only part of the story (95 comments)

LG also had to pay Sony substantial damages.

It's also hilarious how few comments this story has compared to the original. Americans = dumbasses.

Nokia and Microsoft Make Smartphone Alliance

Zoidbot Nokia R.I.P (479 comments)

You just did a Motorola, and killed your smartphone business. You went from a burning platform to another burning platform.

No doubt your ex-Microsoft CEO had something to do with this decision, I wonder where his priorities were...

Microsoft only look after Microsoft, they don't give a rats ass what happens to Nokia, who by the end of this will be an empty shell of their former selves. Microsoft will have gotten what they wanted out of it (WP7 not sinking without a trace) and Nokia will be scrabbling around as a bottom-feeder picking up the pieces.

I'm betting 3 years from now, they will be desperate to join OHA (if they shareholders haven't revolted by then)

This decision will be seen as the key demise of Nokia several years from now.

Congratulations Stephen Elop , your true masters back in Redmond will be most pleased.

Chrome Is the Third Double-Digit Browser

Zoidbot I don't care about marketshare (299 comments)

I care about tangible attributes:

standards compliance

That is why I use Opera, it's the best in all these categories, who cares what it's marketshare is. I also drive a Ferrari.

Google To Drop Support For H.264 In Chrome

Zoidbot Re:Pretty soon... (765 comments)

I'm overjoyed. There is no need for H,.264 support in browsers. WebM is just fine, and supported in Opera, Chrome and Firefix.

The next step Google will take is to remove H.264 video from YouTube, and then finally remove Flash too. IE and Safari users will be left out in the cold, with the offer to upgrade to better browsers like Opera.

UK Targets Twitter and Blog Endorsements

Zoidbot Re:Good luck (77 comments)

They can't enforce it. It's so widespread. Microsoft's PR Agency in the UK have paid me thousands of pounds so far to tweet good things about Kinect. Of course i'm tweeting from a crib sheet, as I don't own a Xbox, nor would I after knowing what Microsoft get upto....

Zoidbot Working Xbox (230 comments)

1 thing I can't have for Xmas.

Time to buy a PS3.

PlayStation App Coming To iOS, Android

Zoidbot Re:PlayStation development for Android? (47 comments)

Unfortunately, there are still retards that don't grasp this. Sony never forced anyone to remove OtherOS. Ther moment Geohot sorta hacked the system, that was the moment Sony pulled the plug on allowing those systems not updated to access the online servers.

If you want to blame anyone, blame Geohot....

Google Quietly Posts Big JavaScript Engine Update

Zoidbot Thanks, but no thanks (120 comments)

Opera is still faster and more fully featured for me.

I'm 100% satisified that Opera 11 (beta) offers me the best of ALL worlds... I don't have to suffer suck performance and bloated nonsense (Firefox), I don't have to suffer Chromes lacklustre featureset or privacy issues either.

I get a browser, I get mail, RSS, IRC, news, BitTorrent and a tonne more stuff, and it's smaller than both Firefox and Chrome, and faster too... It also looks the best.

Xbox Live price hike incomming

Zoidbot Zoidbot writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Zoidbot (1194453) writes "Seems Microsoft don't care that Sony are now offering a free, competitive (and in many ways better) online gaming experience, and are looking into increasing the price of Xbox Live for gamers. Classic drug dealer tactics, holding gamers to ransom because they have invested in a particular platform.

Does this sound like the classic case of get them addicted and then raise the price of the crack?"
