The Nokia stock is up above where it was than the Windows phone deal was announced.

Which also was a pretty weird reaction even though it would be in line with what I felt about the ideas before-hand but considering analysts / at least some people had said that was what they should do and then it tanked anyway =P

Anyway. Stock price recovered. And now they don't make phones.

OK, but can I team them up, to get better scores in my online games?.

This isn't really true: Yeah it give twice as much money back in online poker!

If serious then I have no idea. Guess normally it doesn't work since the routing would be weird (if all had the same IP but different mac and routing then I don't know how that would work.) For games performance is most likely latency related and not bandwidth related and there wouldn't be anything to gain from adding other connectivity options than the best one anyway.

Nobody gives a fuck. That's why we see the social justice crowd trying so hard to make these total non-issues into issues. Since this isn't the kind of thing that normal people get worked up about, being a non-issue, those trying to push the extremist social justice agenda try to plaster this shit wherever they can. But the social justice crowd lacks the finesse that other political marketeers possess. So instead of intelligent, targeted messages, the social justice crowed just brute forces this shit over every possible media venue they can find, constantly.

And that's because they are women right?

JK. Socialist/libertards (liberals in retarded ways.)

$120 a year and it's a needless cost for anyone trying to get into gamedev. The pay-when-you-make-it approach of UE4 and Unity is much easier to stomach when you're new.

True. But the answer to

If you're a developer, is it still worth paying for a game engine?

Is equally simple.

If it benefit you more / give better results / save time which out-weights the price then sure it is.

The "diet" anything or aspartame?

While aspartame isn't supposed to taste just the same as sugar it's usually used with acesulfame k and that's supposed to taste similar.

Personally I've eaten lots of it and I don't notice any weird taste.

I know saccharin and cyclamate has been considered worse for longer and that there's taste issues with those but I always see this damn comment about aspartame sweetened things but for obvious reasons normally from people who don't consume these products.

But is it really about aspartame or is it about some other sweetener and these people just haven't tasted enough things to have a good opinion and is just bunching it all together?

And if so is it worth a 5: insightful?

He/she claim iOS is for people who don't know what Apple is and says he/she think that OS X is Apple for him/her.

But that's not the important part, the important part is what he/she uses today.

The original post ask where Apple is headed today since the person feel the quality has dropped. He/she talks about the Macbook Air though. Which is a cheaper laptop.
