I would have similar issues. However I'd guess that a generation of kids growing up using them every day would learn to adapt.
I would constantly get lost in the original game and thus didn't enjoy it much. I'm horrible with real life directions, so I don't think my brain is wired well for full 3D where you need to keep track of even more.
Feed (2002) is a young adult science fiction novel written by M. T. (Matthew Tobin) Anderson. The novel focuses on issues such as corporate power, consumerism, information technology, data mining, and environmental decay, occasionally from a sardonic perspective. The novel depicts American society's descent into a culture that revolves entirely around advertising and corporate gain from the perspective of an American teenager and his friends.
Right up there with digital versions of films. Maybe I want to watch something longer than 2-3 years after I buy it. Oh and if we don't support your device, too bad.
As with movies, the quality of extras varies greatly. Simple goof reels and dry technical descriptions are one thing, but when they take the time to find real stories in the process it's a whole different world. On a movie you truly like, a good commentary and collection of extras videos can be as enjoyable as the movie itself.
Touch screen systems in cars need something like this. Then they'll need a system to determine when you stop feeling for a button and actually press it.
It's funny how marketing departments/companies push for ever increasing ad revenue and then wonder why we want to get around them. You think they would have learned something from radio and TV.
Unless they have some new miracle system, coatings tend to come off over time. If it's anything like glasses, you'll start to see it coming off around the edges and slowly working towards the inside. You'd certainly lose that non-reflective goodness if you had to use a screen protector to avoid this.
You have a very dim view on technology. Not so long ago voice recognition was near impossible without training.
Since many security systems are based on large prime numbers (e.g. SSL), I've always wondered if having a huge list of primes would weaken those system? Seems like it would have to unless I'm missing something.
Usually if I buy a new drive, it's to rotate out an older one. My "test" is to copy the mostly full drive onto the new one and keep the old drive on the shelf for a couple months in case of problems. Most drives either suffer an early death or last a good number of years. After 2-3 months I'll reuse the old drive for other storage needs.
The main company doing the CGI work (Digital Domain Media Group) went under and was sold off. It was a quick sale, but no word if things are still on schedule.
If they are already getting monthly/yearly fees from customers, what's the incentive to produce good products? Now we get to vote by not buying that version and continuing to use an old one. With this new model they'll get money either way.
Their hard core users will probably pay, but many people are occasional users. Free and/or cheaper products will make out big on this. Word processing and spreadsheets aren't exactly cutting edge applications anymore.
Personally I have had one success swapping PCB's on a drive and getting the data off. Of course this requires that the PCB is bad and not the platters. Most bad drives don't sound good (platter issue) so I don't usually bother (ear to drive can tell you a lot).
I have tried the freezer method 3-4 times with no luck, though friends say they have had success.
Usually if the drive is semi-accessible you can use tools like Easy Recovery (OnTrack) or Recuva (Piriform) to get some data off.
Get nearly everyone to wear them and connect them live to the net. Then when anyone does anything "wrong", it will be captured by everyone around them and immediately routed to the authorities.
