AMD Launches New Higher-End Kaveri APUs A10-7800 and A6-7400K

aliquis Re:Updated? (86 comments)

How do you judge playable?

For instance in bf4 full-hd (or whatever it was, I've closed the tab) the 7850 seem to have done around 30 FPS.

It all depends on what you want though.

Also it showed TDP as 65/45 (turbo or no turbo?.)

70% the price for 75% the GPU and 84-90% the CPU power?

Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8

aliquis Re:Here's an idea! (176 comments)

Why shouldn't they code for PC instead?

Guess the Wii U have specialized hardware but rather release such hardware for the PC too then.

aliquis Re:From Finland (54 comments)

I guess not all of them is all that well-known.

But also US is a country where more of their goods is sold inside the country / their own market than what is the case over in Europe.

Here in Sweden for instance exports is a big thing, and trade with the EU, US and of course Asia too.

Imho Philips make shit products now.

Nokia Buys a Chunk of Panasonic

aliquis Re:From Finland (54 comments)

BeyerDynamic of course is German.

Damn a lot of German brands and equipment in these lifts. I don't really know what the others may be (partly because I live in Sweden and Germany is closer I guess but also because it's the #1 economy of EU and fourth in the world (after US, China and Japan.)

Is the App Store Broken?

aliquis What Apple .. do.. app quality. (241 comments)

On Steam there's the Greenlit section.

Only vote for what you want, don't vote for the rest.

However it's abused by developers and bundle makers in that the developers may for instance run a contest where you're supposed to vote it up to be part of it or the bundle makers promising Steam keys if the game is greenlit.

Hence you get votes for shit.

If it was more restrictive and shit wasn't let it that might had been a good thing.

Alternative is to put badges on all the titles where you put gold badges on actually good products played by many, silver on other good/decent products and nothing on the rest or something such.

But.. But..

The true racists - you know the ones who don't just want to have their country left alone and finance others - would tell you the Chinese simply can't make anything useful! Ever!

(As they likely did with the Japanese and so on, heck,in the UK people likely still consider their military superior! (OH NO I I DIDN'T?!))

Good enough to catch 90% of the rockets from Gaza.

Those likely aren't the latest and greatest of rocketry though.

Samsung Delays Tizen Phone Launch

aliquis Re:Yes it should ship! (112 comments)

I don't know whatever the iPhone had multi-touch like he claim either.

The Nintendo DS was released November 2004 the iPhone June 2007.

So even if you exclude the not so common devices it's not even the first casual / well spread / far reaching product using a touch screen.

Also of course Windows got a chance on tablets.

(and if they gained traction there they likely still have one on phones.)

Nintendo DSi software will be region locked :(

aliquis aliquis writes  |  more than 5 years ago

aliquis writes "Though eventually not a big issue in the end depending on what Nintendo makes of it, the DSi will be the first Nintendo portable to have region lock for its software.

However its only for DSi titles, who knows if it's obliged for all DSi specific software and also maybe it will only be used when it makes sense for the additional services."

The screens have only increased from 3" to 3.25" but the whole unit has become even smaller! Release in Japan on the 1st November for ¥18,900 or around $ 179.

Sweden votes yes for "FRA-lagen."

aliquis aliquis writes  |  more than 6 years ago

aliquis writes "The voting for the new swedish wiretapping law was supposed to be at 09.00 local time but happened this evening instead after a petition for reconsideration.

The result? 143 votes for and 138 votes against, one person didn't vote.
I was said that if four persons changed their mind it would get voted down, so I guess one in the blue camp did vote no.

It's covered at Svenska Dagbladet in swedish and at The Local in english."

aliquis writes "Etrian Odyssey (website uses flash), a nethack/MUD-without-the-MU like game for Nintendo DS was released may the 16th.

The game features classic labyrinth RPG style gaming with over 125 monsters designed by Shin Nagasawa (Final Fantasy IX), nine characters of which you build a party of five, and a map on the lower screen where you draw the looks of the labyrinth using the stylus while you explore it.

Too bad it doesn't seem to contain any multiplayer support :(, graphical MUD on the DS (or any system) would be so sweet."
