Comment: Re:"Immeasurable Impact"?? (Score 1) 212

"Immeasurable impact on issues surrounding technology". Not "inventions".

As a "good guy", Google's contribution to any part of many peoples lifestyles with regard to the technology used is indisputable. (Google search > competition, Android market share > competition, Chrome performance and stability > competition, NaCL, Play store, etc etc. They're not perfect, but they are certainly usable and viable, and often better, alternatives to their competitors.)

As a "bad guy", Google's stereotypical credo of "do no evil", after they've gained such weight in the technology world, is coming into question (most recently? see CISPA).

Together, these certainly form a kind of impact, and given Google's ubiquity in a lot of peoples' lives, an immeasurable one.

"Porn" obviously has more weight to garner clicks, so let's resort to sensationalizing the headline in order to make a buck.

So the word "cloud" appears 11 times in the article, and in each case, is used in a context in which it comes off as a buzz-word or in an SEO-optimized fashion.

What I'd like to know is, how does it fit into the "cloud" paradigm?

  • Does it somehow better handle streamed texture and shader content, thus making my "cloud gaming experience" feel more fluid?
  • Is the chipset designed to integrate with next-gen tablets and smartphones, which would typically be "cloud gaming experience"-devices?
  • Will it better handle next-gen games typically offered as a "cloud gaming experience" (think recent SimCity and worse)? OR...
  • Is it simply being released at a time where "cloud gaming experience" is a convenient marketing buzzword, intended to generate sales among the unwashed masses?

Interestingly, the only difference between a (now defunct? Not sure, I'm in Canada) Netflix mail-order DVD, a DVD borrowed from the library, a DVD you rent at a movie store, and a DVD you purchase from a video store, is how long you get to keep the disc in your home. :-)

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
