Comment: whole article is misleading and pointless (Score 1) 209

This whole article is misleading and pointless, as it has been discovered (and confirmed by UbiSoft themselves) that UbiSoft INTENTIONALLY crippled the graphics of PC versions (only) of WatchDogs.

Assuming the asshat game developer didn't intentionally cripple it, top end PC graphics will always be capable of more/better performance than consoles. Its just common sense, not least because a top-end GPU card alone costs significantly more than an entire console.

I'm completely uninspired by these bland boring android watches. There's no way I'd want one of these on my wrist. I mean for starters... plastic watch straps... really? what a retarded decision. Has no one at these companies ever actually tried wearing one of these for any length of time? especially in a hot climate?

The writing has been on the wall for years. Apple has shown over and over that people want and care about good design and quality materials, and will even pay through the nose for them. Evidently for many people, style is even more important than actual functionality in a buying decision, yet LG and especially Samsung are still releasing products (both phones and now watches) that look like cheap plastic wal-mart crap that cost at most 20 cents to make (not least because they saved on the cost of hiring a designer), but still the actual price makes it a non-trivial purchase. You get the worst of both worlds.

LG and especially Samsung should finally get a clue and take quality materials and good, interesting design as seriously as Apple (or better yet one-up them).

>> a place where governments who use Microsoft software can come to review the source code

Where's the proof that the source code you see is exactly the same as that which gets compiled to make the Windows you buy?

Also does anyone else find it as highly suspicious as me that this center is only open to governments?

Perhaps I have just been lucky in my 35 years of working for quite a few different companies to never have run across anything even remotely like your bad experiences.

For each of these incidents I very much hope you reported all the associated ass hats to someone high up enough to actually do something appropriate, like fire them all immediately.
