Why did Microsoft skip Windows 9?

locopuyo Microsoft simply can't count (399 comments)

Microsoft can't count.
Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox 1
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.

I'm a little surprised they aren't calling it Windows One.

Acer Launches First 4K Panel With NVIDIA G-Sync Technology On Board

locopuyo Re:Proprietary (64 comments)

It will probably be a year before any monitors come out with the VESA standard Adaptive Sync. You can get GSYNC monitors now.

I used the GSYNC upgrade kit on my VG248QE in January and since experiencing GSYNC I could never go back. Everything is much smoother at all frame rates without stuttering or tearing or any of the added input latency standard VSYNC adds.
I can't wait for non-nvidia support, but it is a long ways out.

Blizzard Has Canceled Titan, Its Next-gen MMO

locopuyo It isn't the first time for Blizzard (155 comments)

This isn't the first time Blizzard has scrapped a project. They did it with StarCraft Ghost as well. They even officially announced and released videos for that game.

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

locopuyo Non-experts trying to Dictate (600 comments)

This is exactly like when management tries to get you to use some technology that they know nothing about. It isn't a good idea. Anyone that actually uses a gun knows this.

John Romero On Reinventing the Shooter

locopuyo Re:no (266 comments)

The new Unreal Tournament will be completely free (not free to play, actually legit free), but the community will be allowed to make maps, mods, and other content for it that they can give away for free or sell on the marketplace.

Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

locopuyo hid the trashcan (231 comments)

Our school computer lab used iMacs without any logins, OS6 or something. I made a million copies of the trashbin and spread them all over the desktop then hid the real one on one of the computers. Someone couldn't figure out how to eject their disk and had to have the teacher come over and help. He thought it was funny too.

eSports Starting To Go Mainstream

locopuyo Re:eSports really ? when darts is a sport, then, s (116 comments)

Why would they show eSports on ESPN when they can reach a wider audience and offer a much better experience with streaming? Traditional TV is going the way of the Dodo, everything is moving to streaming. It is like saying Soccer won't be mainstream until it is on the radio.

eSports Starting To Go Mainstream

locopuyo Re:I disagree. (116 comments)

Cool story grandpa. You played some shitty game with shitty physics so all games must have bad physics. You used IM instead of voice and video chat so the only form of online communication must be through text. You played some shitty game at a low level so hand eye coordination and reflexes don't matter in any game. You didn't make any friends playing online that you keep in contact with and meet in real life so no one must be able to.

Your failure isn't stopping it from becoming the norm.

I bought a couple $15 LED bulbs on Amazon almost 3 years ago. I haven't needed to buy any since then because they're still going strong and supposedly last a lifetime.

Why China Is Worried About Japan's Plutonium Stocks

locopuyo Re:Serously? (398 comments)

They were quite dedicated

In 1944, Lt. Hiroo Onoda was sent by the Japanese army to the remote Philippine island of Lubang. His mission was to conduct guerrilla warfare during World War II. Unfortunately, he was never officially told the war had ended; so for 29 years, Onoda continued to live in the jungle, ready for when his country would again need his services and information. Eating coconuts and bananas and deftly evading searching parties he believed were enemy scouts, Onoda hid in the jungle until he finally emerged from the dark recesses of the island on March 19, 1972.

locopuyo Just a prototype for development (41 comments)

It is just a prototype for internal development. It isn't meant to be competition with the Rift. It is what they imagine the Rift and other VR headsets becoming.

Well you have to look at what the goal of having someone in prison is. Is it just to punish them, or is it to fix them?

4chan Launches '$20 Bug Bounty' After Hackers Ruin moot's Day

locopuyo Re:let me be the first to say (79 comments)

Reddit is comprised by a very high percentage of emotional young people. Reddit's voting system ensures that every post complies with its emotional teen hive mind. It is rare you find any valuable discussions on Reddit because the voting system turns everything into a circle jerk.

Visit Reddit if you want to know what the hive mind is thinking,
