Do I have to pre-order?
Why not one of those eye blinding green laser pointers? I wonder how much power one of those needs to fry the camera sensor.
Hmm, yes.... If only there was something he could with his spaceship, with Spock's captured ship and load of red matter (unless the plot has already thankfully begun to fade from my mind), from his now current position in the past. If only there was something he could do like... show up in his huge fucking ship and warn that the star was going to nova or, since Spock was thrown into the past as well, team up with that Spock to make sure there's no fuck ups this time around.
Gosh, if only....
Job fair? Sounds like a bunch of sales twats and HR robots.
That's what I did with Wii and later consoles.... PC's should have gotten all the benefits of consoles instead of consoles getting all the downsides of PC's.
I ran out of characters for the subject but seriously, who the fuck comes up with this shit? When did acronyms HAVE to be almost like a pun?
Was there anything decent about SGU other than the budget for set and special effects? All I remember from albeit a very limited time trying to watch it is shakey documentary cam and dramadramadrama.
Yeah! Companies HAVE to outsource because their tax burden would just be waaaaaaay too high! They'd go out of business and then what? We be buying from Chinese and Indian companies!
Companies with billions in profit are getting negative tax rates.
...inhibiting consumption and wealth accumulation...
Not subsidizing would help with the former and taxes on investments and estates (the so-called "death taxes") would help with the latter.
Yes, that's one idea. There were others such as a fee that, if the recipient allows, is reimbursed back because it wasn't spam. Another was to put a delay on emails from anywhere of seconds to tens of seconds to a minute (to the non-mass emailer, the delay is completely insignificant but at 1k, 10k, a 1M, it's a roadblock).
Anyway, no, a straight up fee to mail would not be supported here. Hey, let's make a poll about it!
What I mean with drama is that the kind of subtleties, the emotional responses, the dialogue, those things are not enhanced with greater FPS, resolutions, or stereoscopic "3D". It's a seriously flat plateau as far bang for buck when it comes to quality in genre. Yeah, you probably don't want to watch an old realmedia video with massive blocking artifacts and muffled sound but once you hit SD resolution and stereo sound, that's enough. Minor jump in enjoyability for DVD quality but then after that is just a waste of storage space, bandwidth, and/or CPU use.
Also, I would say that for any sound, when given quality source files, higher quality sound systems is always better for for anything. You (a rhetorical you) could say that modern, overcompressed and low dynamic range music wouldn't benefit as much and that's probably true.
Anyway, I feel you're missing the important distinction between emotional connection with viewer and visually immersing the viewer. Just as I don't need to be 1080p with 7.1 surround sound to mourn the death of a character, I don't even need it to be real. It could be CGI, a handdrawn comic, or just a combination of letters on a surface. It's not the number of pixels or how many are flashed at me in a second that regulates the impact it has on me.
The use of such high visual fidelity should be for things where visuals trump all. Sports (god I hate sports) benefit because you're watching the action. Nature shows (various National Geographic things or the Planet Earth series) benefit because... it's fucking nature and the only sensory experience you can get from a TV is sight and sound. Action flicks or CGI wankfests (Transformers, blah), again, because you're watching the spectacles, not the shitpoor Bruckheimer dialogue & acting.
But now what's the point of high FPS in a drama? Would Downton Abbey be that much better in 3D? Is a comedy going to be more hilarious in 1080p?
There is one thing about Steam that pisses me off to no end: 3rd party DRM and accounts. The last thing I want or expect from Steam is to have to deal with additional accounts or bullshit installation (I'm looking at you Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet).
Oh, be kind. He's probably just a boob that bought that 3 digit account and has no real logical or critical thinking skills.
Anyway, if they put their cars on stilts, the problem would be solved!
Really? I realize you're a shill but really? That's the best you have?
Is the market for this mouse so anal retentive they'd sooner bring an $80 mouse with them to school or a friend's house lest they suffer from another mouse?
That's for corporations and rich people so they can lawyer bomb any peons who dare to use the system against them to highlight the ease of abuse of the DMCA.
