Valve Starts Promoting Steam For Linux To Windows Users

drc003 Re:PC cases that are XBOX HUEG (474 comments)

Really? I know several people who use Linux and Win 8 on a regular basis. They will definitely be giving Steam for Linux a go as well.

Microsoft Patents Tech That Would Silence Your Phone For You

drc003 Mistakes happen... (251 comments)

Inevitably people occassionally forget to switch to silent mode in theaters, meetings etc. I guess this feature would be nice to have but nothing to really get overly excited about.

Has Christopher Nolan Turned the 3D Argument?

drc003 I hope so... (381 comments)

...because in my opinion it's lame. The price to go see a film is already ridiculous and now they want to make everything more expensive to see for a few moments that may or may not enhance the experience based on your viewpoint. Not only that but it still requires you to wear glasses for the entirety of the film. No thank you.

Oracle's Newest Move To Undermine Android

drc003 Re:Rough times (342 comments)

Nobody here stated or implied that 'popular = automatically rubbish'. The idea that 'popular automatically meant not rubbish' was being refuted. Which someone clearly did imply.

Great point. He probably also thinks that Miley Cyrus is a fantastic singer/musician.

AT&T To Allow Xbox 360 As U-verse Set-Top Box

drc003 Re:LOL (62 comments)

I bought an original at launch and the when it died they sent me a new one for free. When that died they sent another one for free and when that died they wouldn't help any further and I said good riddance.

Did I state I would again be a 1st generation adopter of anything they make? Where did you read that? I'm saying if they make a really nice piece of hardware that proves itself and is a market leader I may purchase it. As for now we are happy with our PC and original PS3 which has never given us any issues.

You sure make a lot of assumptions but I guess I shouldn't expect any less from an Anonymous Coward Clown.

AT&T To Allow Xbox 360 As U-verse Set-Top Box

drc003 Re:LOL (62 comments)

Dan, not all models run as you describe unfortunately. I went through 3 originals that MS replaced and they all were loud and as hot as hell disc or no disc. When the third one died and MS wouldn't replace I gave up. Maybe I'll try one of the new models some day but I'll probably just wait until the next-generation. Hopefully MS can do a lot better with the first round of hardware this time.

AT&T To Allow Xbox 360 As U-verse Set-Top Box

drc003 Sounded good... (62 comments)

until I read:

"...The only major catch is that it can't be the only set-top — you'll need at least one DVR at another TV in the house to enjoy one of the four HD streams that could be funneled into your home."

This lead me back to the fact that it's still AT&T and they will never get another penny from this guy.

Inventor Creates Flotation Device Bazooka

drc003 Re:Boom. Headshot. (144 comments)

Yet both of your posts were modded higher than the original. Wow.

I personally think this is indeed the sweetest raft ever! Love the great orange color so no cops mistake it for a bazooka and let off three clips of ammo into your chest. :)

Nokia Paying $10M For Symbian Software Devs

drc003 Re:Who is Nokia again? (210 comments)

Notice how he hasn't answered a single one of these replies? Probably because he is a iOS/Android fanboy who has no idea what he is talking about.

If you don't like Symbian then you should be pushing for Maemo or MeeGo.

Australian Schools Go iPad-Crazy

drc003 Waiting for MeeGo. (293 comments)

This looks to me to be the best Tablet OS alternative to an iPad. I will wait for a few models to be released and get some time in before making a decision. Hopefully there will be some good hardware options.

The Science of Caddyshack

drc003 Re:So this is going to be done by Mythbusters (55 comments)

Oh I get it! Caddyshack was the first R movie I remember sneaking up late at night to catch on HBO. That accent was damn sexy if you ask me!

I'm also wondering if they look into the science of booger eating and...........DOOOOOOODY!
