More Eye Candy Coming To Windows 10

musikit Re:form over function? (209 comments)

i call that the mythical mutex. the os acts like it is waiting for a mutex to unlock (very low cpu and disk access but doing nothing) i noticed it in osx and it seems to slowly be disappearing from osx but not from xcode yet. however microsoft seems to have stolen or licensed this patent from apple and is now putting it in all windows versions everywhere they can. god save the queen

Ask Slashdot: Swift Or Objective-C As New iOS Developer's 1st Language?

musikit either works if you take advantage of (316 comments)

since you are already a C programmer and are talking about maybe moving to android at a future time. i would write as much as possible in C and just bind to the UI with java/objc/swift.

take advantage of what you know. build wrappers around the java/objc code you will need to you can easily transport that to whatever platform you are on as long as it binds with C.

Google Android Studio Vs. Eclipse: Which Fits Your Needs?

musikit NDK support (140 comments)

Neither support debugging with NDK.
android has absolutely 0 support for it.
some people have apparently gotten NDK debugging working in eclipse. i've tried every example on the web and have been unsuccessful in ever getting ndk debugging working. maybe oneday google will realize ndk support is worth a damn.

Broadcasters Petition US Supreme Court In Fight Against Aereo

musikit NTT in Japan (229 comments)

Living in Japan once in a while someone from NTT knocks on my door asking that i give them money for receiving the signal they broadcast.
my teachers told me about this scam however i tell them two true things

1. i dont have a TV. so im not paying for something i'm not receiving
2. if you don't want me to get the signal then don't broadcast it to me.

same should apply here. the TV stations broadcasted their signal in "cleartext"

BlackBerry Cuts 250 Workers, Calls It Efficiency

musikit Re:250?! (68 comments)

they recently cancelled their playbook.
the aspect ratio on the q10 is a 1:1 why? wth? now i have to support 3 aspect ratios in my games? umm no.
their dev environment isnt that great.
uploads to devices are capped at 1meg per sec.
i can't kill -9 a process. so i need to reboot the phone whenever i put an infinite loop in.
they really should have loaded their software on top of android and been done with it. immediate developer support in a slightly better dev environment.
MS and BB are really two companies in the mobile market that took the bad crap that google and apple did and copied it. then added their own bad crap on top.

Microsoft Kills Xbox One Phone-Home DRM

musikit not gone just relabeled (547 comments)

worked on xbox 360 titles where we were requested by MS to have the user be logged into live in order to save the game. so basically they will continue to ask devs to do that so you still have a phone home or you just cant save the game.

How Unity3D Became a Game-Development Beast

musikit stopped supporting? (115 comments)

i like unity. very simple and nice engine that only gets more complicated as your project gets more complicated however there are a lot of downsides to it. but everytime i ask for support i never get any so i guess they dont support unity just make unity.

DarkSeas Games Developing Spiritual Successor To Road Rash

musikit Re:"open source" the source code after release.. (77 comments)

there is more then "stealing other's code" to decompile a unity program. like i don't know test how good it is at protecting my intellectual property. but i guess everyone who uses a decompiler is a thief. ohh wait you used a decompiler. you must be a thief.

DarkSeas Games Developing Spiritual Successor To Road Rash

musikit "open source" the source code after release.. (77 comments)

I like this. i think it is the funniest part of the project. as since they are using unity to build their game, the source code is already open source. as unity only does AOT compile on the iOS platform. so weather you want to give it away or not. you did! look at any unity android game and open the apk yourself and you can use a c# decompiler to get back to original source (minus comments). I actually asked for AOT compile for all platforms on unity and was ignored.

but thanks for "open sourcing" it. i guess.

OUYA Android Game Console Available In June

musikit Re:OUYA: Free To Play PITA. (196 comments)

totally agree. as a user i dont download apps anymore that have IAP. i can't tell or dont want to tell the difference between full game unlock and nickel and diming me to death. so i check IAP is there... no buy. i don't care if i dont need to use it to beat the game. its there i dont download i dont buy.

as a developer who uses unity, there API sucks ass. i need to do 10 or more C#->Java "native" calls in order to get the entire joypad information. umm switching languages is like slow dude. no thanks.

i wish them all the success. but it does seem that this is an alpha product.

IAP going heywire

musikit musikit writes  |  about a year and a half ago

musikit (716987) writes "Have you purchased a app on the Google Play or on iTunes? did it have an IAP (in app purchase)? The IAP market has gone heywire. Apps are being "upgraded" to have IAP. gone are the days when i purchased an App. the entire ecosystem has seemed to move from purchase based to nickel and dime based. it is time we asked why. or at least ask for the ability to filter out apps with IAP. what do you think?"

WIFI/cell signal blocking maternity clothes

musikit musikit writes  |  more than 2 years ago

musikit (716987) writes "My wife and I have recently found out she is pregnant with our first child. She thinks that WIFI and cell signals pose a big risk to the child, or maybe she just wants to reduce any impact while in the womb. Today in Ikebukuro Tokyo she bought "RF blocking maternity belt" but on testing it, it did not block out our cell phones. I looked (briefly) into it and discovered http://www.bellyarmor.com/ that apparently has this type of wear. Can anyone recommend this or other brands? is it effective? is she off her rocker? Most appreciate the help."
