Well, they said save game data will be stored on the cloud. That right there would be the needed internet connection... and that alone will prevent me from buying one. Period.
The Final Cut covers a future where the recorders are embedded in peoples heads at birth and how that plays out. The ending really sums things up.
>The other aspect of this I find troubling in a consumer product, is that SO MUCH money is spent getting rid of glasses - Lasick, contacts, etc. - that I can't see how they can find much of a market that wants bulky things you have to wear on your head all the time.
Yes, until Google Glasses or a derivative is integrated into your contact lense...
So, wait, if I read this correctly, it only seems logical to imagine that radical polar shift could be related to global mass distribution. If the polar ice were to vanish tomorrow, wouldn't the denser mass areas be located on one of the larger continents... potentially leading to polar drift towards that mass as it pulls closer to center (like a dancer or top spinning)?
I wonder if anyone has ever correlated radical polar shifts with global mass distribution?
All from 1990 through March, 1998, including full text and graphics.
I know they also published one for earlier years while still publishing which like a fool I neglected to buy.
Seriously, right off the bat when Apple sued Samsung the first thought that crossed my mind was "how is this going to work out", Samgung is simply going to counter sue the crap out of them. Then when it was noted that the iPhone contains Samsung parts, I just shook my head at the stupidity.
I'm sure the person at Apple that was getting pats on the back over this slick move is now picking the shoe parts out of their ass.
You know the extra delicious bit of irony with this new turn is that we have a Korean company suing an American company and filing for injunction to prevent the American company from shipping their products because they've outsource production overseas. HAhahaha. Globalization? How's that working out for you?
...and here I was feeling nice about my 4 digit ID. Can't wait till you 3 digit'rs die off so we can have our day in the sun (sic).
Seriously though, congrats, although I do have you beat on the marriage (19 years!)...
I'd match you on the four character domain but I had to sell it during the dot com bust back in 2002 to live on as I was working for one of those dot coms that busted!
and I clearly can't spell to save my life tonight. grr again.
Let's just home they get around to fixing bugs instead of shoveling features up until the last minute. I'm fear that clearly since they don't know what beta means (beta means you're done adding features and are now testing and buttoning up your code to prepare to ship) that shipped may be confused with "time to debug". Sigh... There are some seriously major architectural problems with the code and he's currently telling the community that certain single player features will never be implemented in multi-player because the code is two busted to make it work. Grrr...
I've personally run into this before where a seller set up a shill account to run up bids near the close of the auction to force up the final bid. I reported it as fraud and had the account in question shut down. That's one case and I've heard of it happening to other people as well.
Max bid only works if you're willing to risks of paying out the nose for something or you only have a casual interest in getting the item to begin with. The other side is, if you absolutely need to get the item but want to pay the least amount for it, sniping is about the only way to accomplish it.
Let's see... what kind of horrible things to people do to Sims? Put them in a house with no toilet? Strand them in pool without a ladder? etc... I shudder at the abuse we'll see attempted and if this thing learns from it's interactions. Ick.
"but I suspect that there are very few of these at the same point in their technological development as we are"... you forgot the rest of that sentence
SETI as designed is incapable of even detecting and decoding something akin to the Arecibo message, so I'm always puzzled at how they think they're actually going to know when they have hot data for real. I applaud the effort but I've always felt it was more of a feel-good activity for people to join in on. Hmm....
