No wait, don't Insert Different (tm). Inserting Differently (tm) is the problem. Forget we said that (r).
So much of the system libraries on both OS X and iOS are written in Objective-C and they aren't going anywhere.
Maybe at the application level, but not for system libraries.
So for a long time people at Apple will keep using the giant codebase they're familiar with but app developers, Apple and otherwise, will use Swift going forward. For the Universe minus Apple's OS developers, the statement is true.
Around '96 Apple was internally working on a new OS that was a failure and bought NeXT started by this guy you may have heard of named Steve Jobs.
He's referring to the fact that Apple had, at one point, considered buying Be, Inc. and using BeOS as the foundation for what would become OS X. However, Jean-Louis GassÃ©e wanted too much money, made some shitty comments in the press about sticking it to Apple, and Apple decided to buy NeXT instead.
Valve and Zenimax should have given at least the big-name modders some heads-up, so they could think and have time to rationally decide whether to start selling, and for how much, and to work out any licensing issues in multi-person teams.
I guess you missed it but they did exactly that.
Creator of removed paid Skyrim mod gives his side of the story
Basically Valve contacted him and several other high profile mod authors over a month and a half ago to participate in the rollout. In this particular case, the Art of the Catch mod (adds fishing to Skyrim, I think, I haven't tried it) needed some files from another mod to run, or it had a dependency, or both. Valve told him their legal team thought it would be OK but that the author should consult a lawyer on his own. He didn't, and many butts got hurt over the result.
But your assertion, that they did this with no notice to anyone, least of all the high profile modders, is wrong. They did exactly that.
Time Warner, a copyright focused company would have brought to the relationship.
It's worth pointing out that Time Warner Cable is, confusingly, not owned by Time Warner Inc. It used to be, of course, and for some reason it still has the name (likely some sort of obligation with an expiration date) but since 2009 it's been an independent company.
It's resulted in some asinine incidents, like how TWC for a while could not use HBO Go even though Time Warner proper owns HBO.
Wasn't the digital revolution supposed to free small artists from the tyranny of the labels and allow them to keep their own profits?
Where in the hell did you get that idea?
decent price? 16 bucks for a re-re-release on a system where you can emulate the original or probably the re-release too.
Just because it's old doesn't mean it's worthless. They spent a lot of time and money making a 3D version of the game for the DS, which they released for $30 and sold a ton of. The iOS version has better graphics and a higher resolution and they charged $16, just over half of what the DS version cost. And you're still complaining.
baldurs gate enhanced edition ios is 9.99$.
Baldur's Gate is $9.99 on iOS because it's on sale. Its normal price is $19.99. Baldur's Gate II is normally $24.99. I know because I bought both at those prices. Also, they sort of suck on touch devices. And even if I'm wrong and they're both $9.99 because the price has permanently dropped it just proves my point that cheap people like yourself drove the price down to such a level that the only reason the games are profitable is because they're 17 years old and only the porting costs need to be covered. But you can fucking forget about new games of that depth coming out.
But thanks for proving my point about how mobile gaming drives prices down to the point where the only good RPG's are going to be ports of ancient games. Enjoy your F2P hell you've created.
The days of selling "kiddie" handhelds with QVGA screens and $40 games are numbered.
God I hope not. Mobile gaming is nice and all but it's a race to the bottom. Every game has to be $0.99 or free, and IAP tied to gameplay (just 5 more moves for $0.99!). This is why there's nothing of any depth in mobile gaming. No one is going to sink millions into an RPG on an iPhone. Square has tried to charge decent prices for their games (like $15.99 for FF3) and no one buys them.
A lot of 3DS games are really good and it's because you can charge $40/pop for them and make a profit. Heck, the stupid AR games that come built into the 3DS are better games than 90% of the stuff on the iPhone.
I agree with your premise that dippy little games on Mobile with Mario will get the kids interested in Nintendo and hopefully pick up a Nintendo system but man I really hope that portable consoles and $40/game pricetags don't go away because otherwise everything is going to be a F2P mess.
People who think portable gaming on the 3DS is in any way analogous to modern Mobile games has no idea what they're talking about. Hopefully the market is large enough to carry both.
Another fool blathering on about "rights".
Says the coward.
Look, I don't give a fuck what you, some sleazy corporate lawyer, or some crooked, bought-off government thinks my "rights" should be, or what rights they think should be privileges.
So... no laws for you then, I guess?
I'll do what I see as right, and that's that.
And the rest of us should just hope you're some upstanding citizen, I suppose?
If some shitbag corp exec makes a decision that legally but unethically screws me, I'll look for a quick way to screw them right back.
Ah, vigilante I see. You're a regular digital Robin Hood.
This system is broken, and going through what's considered proper channels is extremely time-consuming, expensive, and rigged against you.
Are we still talking about region lockouts? Because it sounds like you're trying to take on City Hall or something.
This means you have to take things into your own hands if you want even a minute amount of justice.
Justice? Look just don't buy a CD key from a shady site and you'll be fine.
Seriously, you're acting like some white knight when really you're some jerkoff on Slashdot who wanted Far Cry 4 for $3 or something.
But let me guess, when that shady site then uses your credit card to buy CD keys in bulk from Origin for resale to other suckers you'll want that "system" to protect you and fix things, right?
