Please. Kids aren't going to lose their expensive gaming tools any more now than before.
Sounds like you've never been around a toddler.
Probably not a "X1", the press releases mentioned it is a 'customized' (translation very stripped down, low cost, low power version) of the Terga.
Nintendo has never been about raw power for their consoles. None of their consoles thus far has even tried to match the competition there. The Wii was underpowered compared to the PS3 an X360, but it didn't need the power. Twilight Princess was still a very pretty game and a hell of a lot of fun. The big N has always been about spinning Mario in a new direction, not showing how many bullets can be simulated in Call of Modern Wargame 2099.
Sony has been pushing the "play anywhere" thing with their playstation streaming tech. Nintendo appears to have taken that a step further with "bring it anywhere". I like the idea of having a console within a car to amuse the kids for those long road trips. That's something Sony and MS don't quite have yet.
is enough to make them look closer at what design stupidity they tried to get away with and stop with their nonsense. The consensus on Slashdot and other tech sites I visit seems to be "Give me a phone that I'm not afraid is going to break and goes longer than 8 hours between charges", neither of which are easily done with this race to paper-thin.
Samsung, take note. People like replaceable batteries. They like slightly thicker, stronger phones that don't feel like they are going to snap in half when you take them out of your pocket. People like being able to take their phone through an entire day of whatever, without worrying about recharging in the middle. You guys have the 10nm fab going, start getting better batteries and working on energy efficient phones. I don't care if a web site takes 0.05 seconds longer to load, I'd probably blame my cell providers network anyway.
Unless you can cite a statute to base this idea on you're just blowing hot air and as long as all your doing is complaining on Slashdot you may as well not even do that.
I'm no lawyer, so it would take an absurd amount of time to find any sort of legal citation. My guesstimate (yes, guess, see previous statement about not being a lawyer) would be that something along the lines of Comcast hasn't yet occurred and there would not be a lot of legal precedent. First, we are dealing with a single corporation that does not compete with itself and faces minimal competition in multiple markets, some of which have "government-approved monopolies" (even if it's municipal-level last-mile contracts and not anything federal). Second, there is no inherit problem with incorporating all components of a business per se. Samsung owns everything they need to make a phone, washer/dryer, or TV with minimal purchasing from other companies. Nobody really complains about that, but then again we have competition in all markets that Samsung sells items in.
Write you senator and migrate from big party politics or just settle for more of the same.
This is probably one of the more insightful statements I've seen on
If I want flavored food, i'll choose to eat something actually good - like cooked by a human who cares about the taste - rather than some prepackaged thing that is optimized for long term storage.
So you do a lot of eating at home, then?
Pretty much *every* chain loads things down with butter to make things taste good. Often masking other nonsense they try to pull. You might also be aware that there is often only a handful of food distributors in any metro area, so your choice at a restaurant is the same base products, dressed up a little differently. That chicken fried steak at Chili's is the same as Applebees, plus or minus a couple spices.
