Adobe Photoshop Is Coming To Linux, Through Chromebooks

binarylarry Re:How important is that at this point? (153 comments)

See you've just proved me correct.

  complaints from users about the name (VERY unprofessional and immature, BTW)
the shitty interface (and it is *epically* shitty, make no mistake about it)
  the buggy implementation.

These all scream "ME DONT WANT TO RELEARN ANYTHING"

Which is okay but it's not GIMP's fault that it isn't a Photoshop clone.

Adobe Photoshop Is Coming To Linux, Through Chromebooks

binarylarry Re:How important is that at this point? (153 comments)

The issue is that people learn Photoshop, they don't learn the fundamentals for the tool.

So they switch to GIMP and then find it's horrible because their skills don't transfer and they cry on the internet that "GIMP SUX" because they don't want to relearn anything. This is even worse in a business situation because relearning things pushes back deadlines and impacts quality.

It's not wrong so much as it's not the complete picture.

But I'm not in the business of writing novels on slashdot.

binarylarry Re:What, no positional tracking? (88 comments)

Yep pretty much anything causes it, the VR experience has to be perfect or old brain freaks out.

Crazy things, brains are.

binarylarry Re:What, no positional tracking? (88 comments)

It means tracking translation. The Gear VR tracks your head's rotation but not translation which triggers a reflex in your brain that causes nausea.

Basically the brain knows that your head moved a certain way and what your eyes see doesn't match that. In turn, your brain decides that the only explanation is that you've been poisoned and makes you want to hurl as a defense mechanism.

97% of anthropologists thought piltdown man was the missing link and he turned out to be a human skull attached to a monkey jaw bone. The real missing link ended up being found by a guy those assholes mocked.

I stopped buying HTC phones precisely because the don't support their phones well. I had the G1, Sensation and then Amaze. None of them got proper updates.

Microsoft Kills Off Its Trustworthy Computing Group

binarylarry Re:This new guy (99 comments)

I'm personally pretty anti-microsoft and a fan of google's ecosystem of products.

But if the new CEO succeeds at changing the organization, it'd be great to see a third big vendor in the market as an alternative to Google and Apple. Windows Phone sucks now, but who knows what the future brings. Microsoft has been riding their past successes for a long time, too long.

Blender 2.5 Stable Release

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 3 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.57. This is the first stable release of the Blender 2.5 series, representing the culmination of many years of redesign and development work.

We name this version "Stable" not only because it's mostly feature complete, but especially thanks to the 1000s of fixes and feature updates we did since the 2.5 beta versions were published.

The next 2 months we will keep working on finishing a couple of left-over 2.5 targets and we expect to get feedback and bug reports from users to handle as well. If all goes well, the 2.58 version then can be the final release of the 2.5 series, with a massive amount of new projects to be added for an exciting cycle of 2.6x versions. Target is to release updates every 2 months this year."

Stardock rescinds "Gamers Bill of Rights"

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Stardock’s own Gamer’s Bill of Rights is no longer to be found on their site. That’d be the Bill of Rights featuring the proud bulletpoint:

“2. Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state.”

You used to be able to find the bill right here.

PC Gamer are up in arms about it being unfinished in a similar manner to earlier Stardock release, DemiGod, which also came out earlier than its announced release date. PCG go on to quote a post from Stardock CEO Brad Wardell on the Quarter to Three forums in which he responds to a displeased customer, seemingly in absolute contradiction of his own Rule #2:

“the hostility in this thread exceeds my own tolerance for putting up with said hostility.

Also, to anyone, like you Ben, saying the game is like an “early beta” then well, please stay away from our games in the future. I consider it ready for release and if others disagree, don’t buy our games.”

We’ve contacted Stardock for a comment and are awaiting a response."

Apple bans Adobe CS5 Flash Compiler

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Looks like Adobe's release of CS5 with the Flash-to-native compiler has been nixed by Apple's new user agreement:

"3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs."

When did Apple become the most evil technology company on the planet? I bet the folks at Google are feeling really good about Android's future prospects. This ban also affects MonoTouch and other non Objective-C development platforms for the iPhone/iPad and similar Apple devices."
