Part of their deal when they bought out a subsection of Nokia was that they couldn't use the Nokia name on such products.
That would explain frame rate, if they couldn't get their physics/AI routines to work fast enough (although they could use interpolation routines to alleviate that), but does not explain the rendering resolution. Do they expect us to believe they had the CPU working on shaders or rasterization? Even post-processing effects would be handled by the GPU.
The worst part is when shortcut keys and mnemonics are changed because of a different language, I navigate by keyboard and have to re-learn everything on other systems and guess what the right command is if I don't know the language.
Couldn't they just have a USB ID/Bluetooth ID whitelist?
That and Nickelodeon is where kids rule.
They're all being disregarded anyway, what are they complaining for?
Exactly, I don't want an OS that's a resource hog. As for smartphones? They can't keep running at top speed for long before getting heat throttled, or the battery dying. It's apples and oranges. And they still have moments of slowdown and stuttering with all that power. I'd rather have a smooth experience where the OS stays out of the way.

Is this because he hasn't a clue about science or because he is catering to a particular political base?
My parents didn't believe in toys. We had part of a slinky, but I straightened it.
Start a web site that can serve as a talent pool for people like this. Many people would consider them american heroes, and if they had more visibility, maybe they would get hired faster. If they show up on a background check, the employers would be more likely to know why and give them a pass.
What do they expect me to do? I don't even have a phone! I'm glad I created my account before this crap.
Yeah, still using it. Gnome 3 with the applications menu and window list turned on, Thunar as the file manager because they are removing title bars on windows for some reason. I'm getting fed up with it, probably going to move to Mate or Cinnamon. I used KDE3 on Fedora before, but something was always flaky with it, and they didn't have good GUI tools for things like setting up WiFi at the time. It was back when Ubuntu was paving the way for the desktop that I switched to Gnome (love having access to Debian repos and apt is awesome), they had a lot of good GUIs that integrated well with Gnome but weren't on the KDE side of things yet. I might give KDE a spin and kick the tires now that I think about it...
It's one of them fancy sentence spicer-uppers!
Raspberry Pi and Arduino already exist and do the job handily. My home's already covered from CCTV to lighting & temperature to intercoms and it all integrates with XBMC scripts that both control and notify on every TV in the house, powered by (you guessed it) more/Raspberry Pis. Controllable through tablets and smart phones as well as my TV remote. All hard-wired aside from the wireless endpoint, and no lousy third party servers that everything gets uploaded to.
I don't want an expensive phone that I don't even need because I don't want a cellphone.
