Ye, sounds like a way to build some hype around the digital eye glass stuff.
Bolting that thing to your head and getting beat up because of it? Yeah, that's something to get hyped about. What are you smoking?
Looks like he's smoking deductive reasoning. Care for a hit?
I wonder what the cult of the Flying Spaghetti Monster will look like in fifty years.... Dun dun dun....
Comparing the two is silly. In Pastafarian, the holiest men are Pirates. In Scientology, they are Sea Captians. Hmmm....
Much like a chicken after the axe has fallen, the body is still temporarily alive but the brain is dead. Just give it a minute to catch up to reality.
The same could have easily been said of Apple in the 90s. I think we can all agree that chicken stitched a new and improved head back on.
I once typed in a program for three days to see it generate a three dimensional donut on my TV. It took the program hours to calculate and display that donut.
I remember that one: COMPUTE! ISSUE 48 / MAY 1984 / PAGE 58 http://www.atarimagazines.com/compute/issue48/3d_plotting.php
Does talking to my girlfriend count as communicating in code?
What is this "girlfriend" thing you speak of?
I do believe the key word in that slashdot article is "Lame"
Honestly, the quality is too good - You can see the wizard behind the curtain.
Yup, while watching Watchmen on Blu-ray, I couldn't help but notice Doctor Manhattan wasn't exactly...... Kosher. Way too much visual information.
Quake though was just a man who would grunt every so often
And yet, gay porn is a multi-billion dollar industry.
HDMI is hardly rare, you actually have to go out of your way to get a computer without it these days.
Actually, you can find them without HDMI quite easily at an Apple store.

There are literally millions of programmers that cut their teeth on little 16K machines with basic in ROM. It stopped nobody from going on to OO languages. Dykstra was wrong.
I've met countless people over the years who say they started programming in basic on 16k machines, and NEVER made it to OO languages. For some, they lost interest, but others simply weren't able to make the jump from spaghetti code to structured programming, much less OO.
Computing in what my son calls "the olden days" was huge fun. Though not as productive as it is today. For certain values of "productive". Back in the old days you could write a graphing program with a couple of for loops and a plot command. Now there's all sorts of hoops you have to jump through to simply open up a window.
True. But what if you want to run TWO graphing programs at the same time?
