CES: Laser Headlights Edge Closer To Real-World Highways

irwiss Re:Awesome (295 comments)

You don't need a luxury car for that, just put some xenon headlamps on average impreza (or what do they call cool now? but has to have a spoiler) and don't dim, you can automagically become an asshole at no extra charge.

How To Make PC Gaming Better

irwiss It's way more simple (337 comments)

Those who finds model numbers unintuitive usually asks one of their geek friends to build a PC for them, those who don't even bother looking at model number but rather look up the benchmarks don't care about the model numbers.

The real issue with PC gaming is that a lot of games these days are shitty console ports with atrocious controls, awful camera and graphics that are still stuck on xbox360/ps3 level which are already outdated by just about any discrete video card, and there's no incentive for companies to change their "make console game -> port to pc to milk" agenda.

Cutting the Power Cable: How Advantageous Is Wireless Charging?

irwiss Re:Efficiency versus not breaking your phone. (284 comments)

I wonder if the battery recharge cycles problem has been solved already in the Qi standard.

If walking near a charging pad is going to "expend" a recharge cycle, it's going to be annoying
trying to navigate between cubicles without walking into some charging field.

Google Seeks US Ban On iPhones, iPads, Macs

irwiss Re:How can this be ? (404 comments)

Whoa, an AC confirmed your conspiracy theory, call the press!

I couldn't give a rats ass who made feature X first, "stealing" features dates back to stone age.
However, Apple directly hurts my interests as the consumer - by blocking competing products, which
is why they don't deserve my money(even though their hardware is nice).
