Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
This is the quintessence of 'over-reaction'. I refuse to be treated like cattle on an airplane simply because the security team on the ground is incompetent
You guys can have fun tolerating this nonsense...the airlines lost my business ages ago.
If you have no legs or can't walk, you're never going to learn karate and becoming a kickboxing champion. End of story
There are certain things, of course yes we can make more accessible to the disabled, but I'm sorry, gaming is NOT one of them. A recreation that refines split second reflex and hand eye coordination SHOULD NOT BE MUCKED UP so someone with fucking parkinsons can play it 'easier'.
If you have Parkinson? Sorry you simply can play games that require a steady refined hand. END OF STORY.
I know im going to get modded as troll / flamebait but i am SICK TO DEATH of people who are PHYSICALLY LIMITED EXPECTING TO BE ABLE TO DO THINGS AS IF THEY ARE NOT: REALITY CHECK, YOU CAN'T AND YOU NEVER WILL, DEAL WITH IT
I know online media is great, dynamic and full of selected content you want to read...but it's delivery relies on almost ten times as many nodes of transmission which is again reliant upon tons of electrical equipment (which don't like electromagnetic interference, bad storms or lightning strikes btw) as the number of nodes of transmission / equipment needed to bring you a physical news paper.
Of course there can be equipment failures at the press house, or the place can burn down or blow up or the paperboy is a crackaddict, but I think we can all agree, that there are many more opportunities for something to go wrong, when it comes to receiving the media online when compared to receiving a physical newspaper.
Also, you can archive physical news papers, clip, frame them...it's all been printed for you, and you've paid for it (well technically, you're paying a small percentage of a cost that has been heavily subsidized by the businesses and organizations who advertise in the paper but the point still stands none-the-less). With online media...it seems like now you're going to have to pay to view, and pay to get a printed copy (use your ink, use your paper, and use your electricity) and the advertisers are still subsidizing the cost of this media getting to you.
Seems like they're just looking for new ways to get you to pay more money for the same old product...same old game.
I have to admit, that's the most creative pile of bull excrement I've ever laid eyes on.
