The amusing part of this story is how everyone is basically lying about this "silent install" which never actually happened. Better headline: uTorrent quietly reveals people don't pay attention when they install things. News at 11.
HFR and the video smoothing/jitter reduction on your friends poorly configured TV are not the same thing at all. HFR actually has more frames and should look sharper/smoother overall. The TV smoothing is only actually supposed to be used when upscaling SD content. Just get them to turn it off, or turn it all the way down at least.
Asking people to put their things away during take-off or landing makes complete sense, and anyone that doesn't want a broken phone or tablet or nose should be doing it anyway. The jolt can send devices flying out of people's hands (mostly on landing). People are not coordinated and will flail and drop things when off balance. I saw some woman smash the guy next to her in the face with her tablet during a 'rough' landing about a month ago. The guy handled it well and shrugged it off, but you always hear the horror stories about people being thrown off of planes and arrested after fights over far dumber things. Stopping things from flying around the cabin, hurting people or breaking things has always been the reason behind them asking you to stow your belongings during takeoff/landing. They don't want you having books, bags, or other large flat hard objects just loose in the cabin either. This really has little to do with being allowed to talk on your phones, or ignoring the safety speech and much more to do with common sense. Put the stuff away. You can take it out again 5 minutes later.
My analogy is my cell phone. Sometimes I just wish it would just "lose" it's Sprint service and go into roaming mode, so my data would work.
If all I wanted was Caller ID I could have gotten a watch with a built in pager in 1995.
Or maybe you just want to see who is calling you and accept/reject calls or quickly read text messages without having to take your phone out of your pocket? Or get it off your desk or out of your jacket... I don't understand the fuss, old man... I've wanted and envisioned something like this since the first cell phone I owned in the 90's.
You have literally no clue what you are talking about. Both major video card manufacturers have doctored and faked benchmarks, not just nVidia. That has nothing to do with this poorly optimized console port... you just want it to be true.
and 4 years later there is still no real reason to run DX10... especially for a console port.
1) MS is not dense, they understand that corporate networks are not always hooked up to the internet. You are not the first person to think of this. 2) Who cares, MS has repeatedly said in the past they don't care about piracy. This is more about cloud control of the OS than OS authentication. It's just a first step. 3) See 2.
I'm sure this works very well for the less than 1% of PC users that work like you do.
Think first, moron. The problem is that the Crysis team designed a piss-poor world with water behind walls and many other less than optimal decisions. Probably shortcuts and hacks to make the world work on a console. Nothing to do with any mal-intent by nVidia... unless you think they were making design decisions for Crysis2... in which case I have a bridge to sell you.
The Nero suite is pretty easy... for starters...
That's some pretty piss poor device. Buy this thing that only does one thing right. Don't bother getting the right software for your PC.
You mean 10 year old hardware will run a 10 year old operating system better than a 2 year old operating system? Shocking.
Clicking the start button and typing in "group policy", "power options", or "screensaver" are way more difficult than complaining about it... right? No coughs necessary.
