Avoiding DMCA Woes As an Indy Game Developer?

ben0207 Re:trademark not copyright (494 comments)

That's bullshit and you know it is. You can't just choose to ignore major parts of copyright and trademark law just because you're able to remember things.

Goddamn it! That's the first time it's ever happened to me!

Funnily enough female orgasms are also announced "loudly and repetitively, preferably with frequent appeals to one's deity"

New MacBook Pros Launched

ben0207 Re:Still Overpriced? (411 comments)

My 9400M is getting on for 2 years old. Not even the slightest hiccup so far.

Oh, and none of the other 200+ MacBooks and MacBook Pros I look after have reported any faults related to it either.

MechWarrior 4 Free Release Delayed By Microsoft

ben0207 Re:Boo to Microsoft (90 comments)

If you honestly think that a few pissed off FOSS developers are going to even slightly affect the sales or reputation of MS games, you are quite terrifyingly deluded.

iPad Launches, FCC Teardown Leaked

ben0207 Re:3...2...1... Wake up! (617 comments)

The problem there is that it would be COMPLETELY BLOODY UNUSABLE.

1: OS X was never written for touch devices. Neither were any of the applications. Assuming it has the same DPI as the MacBook Pro in front of me (13", 1280x800) it would be next to impossible to hit, well, anything on the menubar or the close window button or pretty much anything else.

2: A 1GHz ARM chip isn't fast enough. Funnily enough, I happen to own a 1.25 GHz G4 iMac with 512 RAM and a 1024x768 display. Roughly equivalent to the iPad's specs, and running Leopard like your hypothetical tablet would. It is, again, almost unusable. Applications takes forever to open. Buttons seem unresponsive. It's as fast as it ever was, but it just doesn't compare to modern computers. And your hypothetical tablet would be.

3: The battery would last about 3 hours. And I'm being very generous there.

Bethesda Unveils New Co-op Dungeon Crawler

ben0207 Re:Abbreviations... (218 comments)

I guess I'll have to get some cash from the ATM machine to pay for all this - especially if there's DLC content. I hope I can remember my PIN number.

While I'm out I should probably pick up some new DVI interface cables and RAM memory.

OnLive Remote Gaming Service Launches In June

ben0207 Re:Not the point of onlive (316 comments)

And the main advantage: after those 4 years are up, you will still have a working PC and all of those games you've bought for it. Whereas with OnLive you will have thrown away $720 and if you cancel the service you will have nothing to show for it.
