Comment: Flying Cars (Score 1) 139

You know nothing, Jon Snow.

On a more serious note, I'm not sure they should be worried about the wind. Is 8.5in of reinforced concrete really going to stop a station wagon full of tapes hurtling through the sky at 310mph?

Something tells me that their tornado budget would be better spent on insurance and remote data backups.

Google searches are not statistically valuable, unless you're gathering statistics on Google searches specifically I suppose. Very few IE crashes are reported in a manner Google can index, if they're even reported at all. Firefox on the other hand has Bugzilla, a public bug tracker with hundreds of thousands of reports.

+ - EA Calls for 'Open Platform' for Games->

Submitted by

eldavojohn writes "EA's head of international publishing made some interesting comments on where EA would like platforms & PC gaming to move to. From his statement, "We want an open, standard platform which is much easier than having five which are not compatible." While the rest of his comments imply that he simply meant 'one' platform instead of removing development licenses, it is an interesting concept. This is obviously a move designed to cut their development time for a game into a fifth of what it is but could this have other implications like easier homebrew development for consoles? There are the obvious concerns about losing the security-through-obscurity that odd hardware gives consoles, lack of being able to take advantage of chip architecture and emulators springing up on PCs. However, maybe this move would benefit everyone involved in gaming?"
