The (late) Pictures For Sad Children had a very relevant comic.
On the Gear VR? They've got accelerometer data. It's probably not as precise as external tracking, but still.
What I prefer in the Kickstarter model is that the money is not actually taken until the project funding deadline.
It allows to easily adjust the funding if you want to switch pledge levels (which is an absolute headache on IndieGoGo), and rectify impulsive decisions to fund something.
It also gives a sort of "time to comment". If a potentially fraudulent campaign gains traction, there are usually people sweeping in to confront project creators about it. Extreme case of that was even brought up here on Slashdot, with the iFind tags campaign, that resulted in the project being busted by Kickstarter - all before funds were collected.
With IndieGoGo? Funds are taken immediately. Good luck with refunds.
You should treat both sides as untrustworthy. Fabricated evidence, or just total lack thereof, is used by both sides.
It's an amazing trait of modern wars. We often say that cyberwarfare is the threat of the future, but right now information wars, shaping public opinion that's malleable and not always critical enough of the fact presented, is maybe a bigger thing than actual firefights on the ground. Modern technology makes information easy to manipulate, easy to inject into public view, and far, far easier to spread.
Unless a war goes on in your homeland right next to you, you can't really tell if you're being told the truth.
> For example, the VP9 codec that’s used in High Definition YouTube videos shows a 15% improvement in decoding performance.
Except that with this version, hardware-accelerated decoding broke scaling, so it now seems to scale as nearest-neighbor. Thankfully, on Windows it's possible to override hardware decoding with chrome://flags, which is a workaround for now.
ark.intel.com qualifies as "easily accessible", no?
In terms of thermonuclear fuel supply in the Sun, it's a good approximation. We're talking about space here.
A couple of points.
First, those restrictions have recently been kicked up a notch in ridiculousness. Some publishers now disallow gift copies in those "cheaper" regions - presumably, to stop such cross-region trading, but you can't even gift the game to someone within the region.
Second, it's important to remember that region restrictions are entirely up to the publisher. As far as I can tell, Steam more or less mandates cheaper prices for Russian region, but adding restrictions is entirely publisher's decision. For instance, no digital copy of a Valve game was ever subject to those restrictions (retail is another matter though). Most indies don't opt for regional versions.
Great. Now, do you have a spare tablet around for every target android version?
The RSS headline is even more hilarious.

So how do I develop extensions?
Like you always did. Developer mode did not change this time around.
Also, how do I run the custom extensions that are used in our company and should not be publically available?
Enterprise install policy is unchanged. If you can use it, you can use extensions from any source. Even NPAPI extensions, which are now banned from Store.
It's probably not an extension, but a plugin. That's a bit different, but they will also be going away end of this year.
You can use unpackaged extensions (that cannot auto-update) like alw.. Sorry, with a nagging prompt every time you launch Chrome.
A joke I've read recently:
I'm not sure if "R is written by statisticians, for statisticians" is a good thing e.g. "stadiums are built by footballers, for footballers"
What severance package?
"...was terminated by the security company..."
Golden casket, I guess. Man, corporate politics those days.
Users don't react to them well.
