you forgot to include the word "Dingo" in there...
How about we "bing" that?
They are purchasing this to get Minecraft on the Windows Phone-no-longer-called-Phone platform, in the hope that people will buy their devices to play Minecraft on.
Yes, I'm not actually bullshitting you on that one.
Don't get me wrong, I'm fond of my language when it comes to identity and culture. But when it comes to communication having global terminology and one way of doing it makes everything so much simpler. Yes, there's a whole lot of "English" speakers out there but any resemblance of a common tongue beats trying to use translators. It's something of a first world issue though as 16% of the world is still illiterate in their first language but I hope that in 100 years you could talk to at least half the world's population in one language.
Now you know why I started to learn Mandarin a few years ago - yeah, I've accepted that I won't get far on Danish alone, and there are more people knowing Mandarin/Hindi/Spanish than English
Meanwhile, I'm trying to recall the short-cuts in MS Office's Danish version
Play your console-shooters using a mouse+keyboard then?
There is nothing technical in the current and previous console generations that keeps you from using a USB or Bluetooth mouse in shooters. The game-developer might have decided to not support it, but that is a question of the game, and not the platform.
Language support. MS is American and only do English well. Any other language is a total clusterfsck on Windows.
That's kinda impressive - from experience, there aren't all that many Americans, that "do English well"
Fahrenheit is based on the coldest you can get brine before it freezes and the approximate human body temperature.
Well, the average temperature of inmates living in inhygenic conditions.
With that much toilet-usage
Would suggest people also go through and revoke any logins, computers and devices after they set up 2FA - should be right there in the Security tab on Google account settings.
We (Denmark) would be doing it up around Greenland
Instead, we're planning on going to war with Canada over Hans Ø / Tartupaluk.
This seems designed as a demo-kit, for inclusion in IoT stuff, not for use at home in funny projects.
Purely observation: In recent months, firefox has become mostly unusable for me when watching streamed video - I have to use Safari to get anywhere near fluid playback on a laptop with more than enough CPU power. It seems a recent'ish change to something in firefox messed up plugins....
I'm glad it didn't hit the US - newspapers would have been screaming "INVASION" or something equally silly for days....
Why is it any more evil than animated GIFs? Both play automatically, neither happen with sound, and compression on x264 is *way* better than with animated gifs.
I was initially opposed to autoplay on FB, but after thinking about it, I changed my mind. We already see tons of animated stuff on web pages, and the videos from people who show up on my page about are usually things I'd find interesting (if the user posting them didn't usually post interesting things, I'd have stopped following them). There's no unexpected sounds to bug me, and the quality to size ratio versus animated gifs is, what, two orders of magnitude better?
1) I suspect videos tend to be larger than Anim-GIFs by an order of magnitude
2) Anim-GIFs do not have any sound, while video tend to have sound (ie. more data transferred even if muted during playback)
3) Modern browsers have options for disabling auto-play of Anim-GIF, while similar control for video might be up to a 3rd party plugin
Note how Google can use Anim-GIFs as a preview for YouTube videos on Google+ - I'm thinking they aren't doing this because it is fun.
I think there's a ferry you could take... More service, luxury etc compared to the flights, shorter travel-time than the longboatds.
