How about: take 4kg of ice cubes and drop them on your head from 10 feet. Then do the same with a 4kg block of solid ice.
I sounds like what you need for your org. is regular social networking, rather than advertising. I don't usually reshare things, but if one of my friends was asking for singers I would probably pass it on, even if I wasn't interested myself.
I wish I could mod this up. You sum up the privacy problem very concisely, and IMO it renders the security discussion moot.
I like your idea of a more permanent indication of the seal being removed, but GS/EB would probably just put a big sticker over it saying 'new game, really, but don't forget to buy our new game insurance for only $4.99!'.
It's not 'biplanar', it's stereoscopic. I suppose they could use something like what you describe to reconstruct a stereoscopic view of a 2d film, but in practice they are more sophisticated than that. I know you're trying to simplify things, but calling it biplanar is selling it way short.
Don't get me wrong, I hate just about everything about this 3D fad, I just think you are confused about the implementation.
I agree with you about the judge, but that doesn't mean Sony did the "proper thing". I think we can safely blame both of them.
Either way, only half the light (minus absorption, plus leakage) is reaching each eye. Whether it's shuttered or polarised, it's going to be half as bright as showing the same image for both eyes and taking off the glasses.
At one point when the Canadian dollar was nearly equal in value to the American dollar, Sony adjusted all their Canadian prices on PSN to the American prices. That was only possible because they happened to have prices for all items in another currency of approximately the same value. Now that the Canadian dollar is weaker again, they will be making less from Canadian sales.
It's a choice between trusting the value of a new currency, or coming up with prices for all items, in all currencies, and adjusting them over time.
Only for windows, but it converts to mp4 files which will play on the 360. There are probably easier ways to do it with transcoding, but this one actually keeps the video stream intact bit-for-bit. You just need to make sure
Also if you have a newish ATI or nVidia GPU, it can probably do the decoding if you use mpc-hc or the standalone codecs from it.
There's a separate download for x64, but express won't usually target that.
