Comment: Re:The small format hurts because you can't hold i (Score 1) 258

It's worth pointing out here that PSPGo accomplishes a few objectives for Sony, but also benefits the PSP platform as a whole by its existence. Case in point: look at how many PSP games are now available on the Playstation Store. 225. Before the Go came out that number was much lower. All of those 225 games can be downloaded and used on an original PSP. Which is great news for me, because I own a PSP 1000 and a PSP 2000, but loathe lugging around the huge and fragile UMD discs everyone is apparently so sad are no longer supported on the Go. I now have a much larger selection because of the Go's existence.

Also, developers have disliked the PSP for quite a while because retail stores don't carry a large enough selection of games. In fact it is the retailers themselves who refuse to carry a decent UMD selection that are now turning around and telling Sony they won't carry the Go because they can't sell the games for it. They said they hate UMD, and they got what they wanted. Too bad. The existence of the Go does two things for the PSP platform: it forces the big developers to put their titles up on the Store instead of just on UMD. A win for anyone who prefers to download their games. But now smaller developers can compete on a fairly level playing field, knowing that at least when it comes to PSP Go owners they aren't competing for a tiny amount of shelf space with the likes of EA and Activision.

Finally, if you can't tell that this is very much an effort to get devs on board for a future PSP 2 that is digital-download only, you're pretty stupid.

an absolutely appalling clusterfuck of a language that can't even use consistent function names within a single module (its name shall not be spoken).

I think its name should be spoken. I doubt that I'm the only one who doesn't know what language you're talking about.

Let's just say that you might need a Physicians Health Plan after trying to remember whether or not a function name has an underscore.

Why not make the source itself a formal language?

It already IS a formal language: American English Leagalese.

This language started out as essentially the language as spoken at the time the early laws were written, then various words had their meanings defined, clarified, and frozen by court decisions. Further laws, contracts, and legal arguments and decisions used these words whose meanings were clarified in preference to other words that had not been so clarified. Meanwhile, in the absense of public education in the law for people who weren't making a carreer in the legal system, the spoken language drifted away.

In observance of Guy Fawkes Night, Thousands of Presidential Candidate/Congressman Ron Paul supporters donated just over $4.3 Million dollars to his campaign within 24 hours, topping the record for the most raised online in one day for any presidential candidate, ever. His staggering amount also shadowed the most raised in a single day by any of the other Republican candidates, to which Mitt Romney owned the title at $3.1 Million. With the media burying Ron Paul, and refusing to consider him a top-tier candidate, will Paul be able to leverage the internet community into proving otherwise at the polls?"

Paul has drawn millions with his message of liberty, and refrain from empire building. The message of non-intervention, secure borders, no entangling alliances, no income tax, ending the war on drugs, and liberty is rapidly spreading. Read more about it here."

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The AP reports Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, aided by an extraordinary outpouring of Internet support Monday, hauled in more than $4.2 million in nearly 24 hours

The $4.2 million represented online contributions from more than 37,000 donors. Paul as of Monday had raised more than $7 million since Oct. 1, more than half his goal of $12 million by the end of the year, according to his Web site.

Paul advocates limited government and low taxes like other Republicans, but he stands alone as the only GOP presidential candidate opposed to the Iraq war. He also has opposed Bush administration security measures that he says encroach on civil liberties."

The online grassroots campaign "this November 5th" organized a $4.2 Million Money Bomb on the candidate running for president with over $4 million of which raised online. This surpassed the largest online fundraising in a single day to a primary candidate of $2.7 million. This goes to show the organizational power of the internet."
