Then your company was rich. Not the regular user's typical monitor.
If you were rich. The typical monitors back then were still 15-inch non-flat CRTs.
How can that be "typical", when most monitors at the time did up to 1024x768?
Indeed. And in this review, the guy explains how to build a solid gaming PC for $500, same price as the quite weaker Xbox One (before they got rid of the Kinect).
What was the typical resolution for playing games at the time? The Dreamcast did 640x480, and it looked fine with a VGA box or an S-Video cable.
He didn't say Nye is not a scientist, but that climatology is not Nye's field (it is mechanical engineering, actually).
A $150 card will beat the Xbone right now.
Quake 3 looked really good on the Dreamcast.
Watch Dogs is just a shitty port. But from what I heard, the rather modest (sub-$150) GTX 650Ti will handle Titanfall better than the Xbox One.
No, you moron, it is hardware.
That is one of the few exceptions, along with certain colorful iPhone and iPod models. Everything else is boring metal slabs.
Apple makes virtually nothing themselves - they design, and use a slew of Asian contract manufacturers to build their products
Isn't that the case with pretty much every PC maker out there?
Anyway, Apple these days makes me sad. I like OS X, but I don't really like their hardware anymore. Remember the original iMac, or the sunflower one? The clamshell iBook? The G4 Cube? They had such interesting and unique designs. Their current stuff, though... most of what they have is some slight variation of a featureless slab. So refined, so minimalistic, so elegant, so chic, so skull-numbingly boring.
Hiring a non-computer executive? What's next, will they hire one from a soft drink company?
Whoosh. The target of the joke is Samsung.
