But I honestly never realized that it's a site people go to on purpose. I mentally categorized it alongside any sort of "Click here and we'll install adware for you!" ads. Has anyone here had success using this service? Is it "cragslist-y"? I don't intend to start using it, just curious.
but what does Yahoo even *do* these days? I don't remember using a Yahoo product since...Middle school?
Agreed, but the money's not there. This promotes resale, which takes away from apple's.....i mean...the phone manufacturer's....bottom line.
Kind of irrelevant, but my solution is to host my own install of tt-rss: http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-rss/wiki It's similar to reader, and works great.
I have no experience with Apple TV but I would say the same about roku. I'm a programmer in my 20s, and I get flustered by remotes with way too many buttons; i could imagine it would be worse if i was unaccustomed to electronics. Roku remote is simple, the (FEW) buttons are large and well labeled, and as long as there aren't too many apps installed, your grandparents should be able to easily find netflix.
So as a followup study, find the relationship between coffee consumption and compulsive masturbation? Could possibly be linked, based on personal anecdotal evidence.
At risk of sounding like an ignorant American, Why do we force bikes onto the road in many areas? I went to school in Wisconsin, and students were occasionally ticketed for biking (or skateboarding or rollerblading) on the sidewalk, rather than the road. It seems to me that the sidewalk is a more appropriate place (bike vs pedestrian = stitches, bike vs car = death or brain damage) Of course sidewalks aren't available everywhere, but where they are, why are bikes forced off the sidewalks?
Agree. You might notice that only posts from a select few people are showing up in your stream, and you seem to see the same people repeatedly. That's not an accident on facebook's part, but I still don't understand why.
Why are pyros hated so much? I think they're one of the most strategically effective classes. I understand rage against snipers and spies, but pyros REALLY help round out a team if used effectively. -Demo/Pyro/Medic player
I'll back this up. One solution is to try to find people to play with regularly. If you have a group of 5, then matchmaking is done based on your team's collective skill, and you don't need to worry about teammates
My biggest fear about this model is that I will be limited in the gameplay elements I have available. For instance, when the game comes out, I was really hoping to pay a flat fee so that all heroes/items are available. I don't care about hats and skins, those should cost exorbitant money to the player so valve can keep up their profitable business model. If it's based on how "nice" a player is(however that's determined), I'll still have to play a few games before I can unlock items at a reasonable price. And I'll have to make sure I play support classes, help people out, buy wards, give compliments, and upvote other friendly people to increase my ranking (I'm guessing criteria here) This being said, I've played the beta extensively. I am a friendly player, and I do help noobs. I did the same in TF2...so I'm sure this model will benefit me more than others, I just don't want to have limited content (or pay super high prices) when the game comes out.
Or a football league where the players are allowed steroid use? Sure would make things interesting.
Also the reason it's harder to get newbie programmers(like myself) interested in an open source project. "Welcome to the group, you're in charge of what the rest of us don't want to do!"
I see what you did there
