Speaking as a soon to be H1B... I'm raising your average, stop whining.
If I had mod points, you would get them... I really genuinely don't get why no one saw this coming.
Sure, but "progressive for its time" is not the same as "uhura was an independent woman".
You're trying to claim that the original StarTrek wasn't a chauvinistic, womanising series in which Uhura was portrayed as an independant woman?
You can many points about how this differs from the original StarTrek, but that sure as hell isn't one of them.
Personally, I think this StarTrek is probably the most StarTrek that StarTrek has been in a long time.
Actually, no, normal people do not enjoy the act of killing.
Oh right... And where does the space for the larger GPU board go (larger, because previously its parts could be interleaved with the other logic board parts, and now it has to be routed out, and separated). Where does the cooling for that part go? Do you stick all that cooling for a massive GPU in there, even when none of the stock options include it?
Macbook pro is the prime example of style over substance, and as a result the antithesis to a gaming laptop which is substance over style. Gaming laptop need to be thick regardless due to need to dissipate incredible amounts of heat, they need to be heavy to be able to fit huge batteries needed to keep the thing running even for an hour on full throttle and they need big but relatively low res screens so that optimal screen resolution can produce decent FPS in heavy games on mobile hardware.
Actually, "Gaming" laptops are in my mind the ultimate in style over substance. What is it you need from a laptop:
Something that lasts a long time on batteries
Something that can fit in a bag
Something you can carry without breaking your back
A "gaming" laptop fulfils none of these requirements to being a good laptop, they're thick, heavy, unwieldy, and generally last only an hour or two on batteries - or in some cases, so little time that they can't even boot without shutting down (yes, I've actually seen brand new laptops that can't boot on their battery).
Meanwhile, the MacBook Pro fulfils all of those requirements.
To me, that sounds rather like it's full of substance, while the gaming laptop is simply an ePenis (aka style) –and not a very long one.
To be honest, that's great with me. Killing animals because the land needs to be managed, and we need to eat –fine. Killing animals because some sick fuck thinks it's fun –not fine. If this gun increases the accuracy, and hence the likelihood that the animal will die instantly, then all to the good.
It doesn't exist for a reason. Standard slots have a defined shape and size. When you're working in a world where your motherboard needs to be as tiny as possible, and fit around all the other components (like fans, batteries, etc), having stuff with a predefined size and shape narrows the design space, and makes a good laptop harder to produce. I mean, look at the retina MacBook Pro's logic board, where do you propose a standard graphics card slot goes on that? And no – on top is not the correct answer, the machine's too thin to mount something on top of, or below the logic board.
The other reason is that laptops generally run fairly marginal on cooling. A laptop designed to have a 30W GPU in it is not going to sufficiently cool a 45W GPU.
EA, Activision, ad Microsoft are the only 3 american companies there, and they're publishers, not developers. Moreso, Activision is now being propped up by Blizzard, which admitedly is not Scottish, but is also not American (it's French).
By comparison, Rockstar, Ruffian, RealTimeWorlds (now eeGeo), and countless other smaller companies are based in Scotland.
Oddly, Apple already stores the media on their servers, something about running a shop or other
Long story short, media does not count towards your quota, you can just redownload from the store at any moment.
Your media can be downloaded as required via iCloud.
Games? Most big games are produced in Scotland, not the US.
They are, they already do what you describe. The author is a troll.
