The Oculus is 640x400 per eye for a total of 1280x800. Not 1280x800 per eye. I've no idea why the total resolution is always mentioned since it's a completely useless metric. I think they've solved a lot of hard problems with this device -- in particular head tracking lag -- but it still has some baking to do before it's ready for your average gamer to use as a monitor replacement. In particular the resolution needs to approach or surpass 720p. Can someone more familiar with HDMI comment on the viability of pushing 2 720p signals @ 60Hz over HDMI? I know it's an issue for 1080p, not sure about 720p.
The slashdot I knew is gone. After years of reading and moderating, this will be my last visit to the site.
For me, the quality of slashdot has been declining, for years really. It still presents a lot of great stuff, but more and more I find myself annoyed by
- non-tech articles
- articles that no one here cares about but that get posted over and over anyway because someone at slashdot has a vested interest (bitcoin)
- politics being inserted into articles
- poorly reviewed articles that either purposefully sensationalize the headline or get the summary completely wrong
- and now infomercials
I really enjoy slashdot because there are a lot of intelligent, well-spoken people here, but I'm so close to being done with it. Makes me a little sad.
Just to be clear, the original plant that started the cloning process was not 200,000 years old. According to TFA it was between 12,000 and 200,000.
/., if you are going to use questionable scientific articles from the Telegraph, can you at least not make it more sensationalist by purposefully misquoting the age of the plant?
I developed Audiotorium Notes a couple of years ago for my niece who was just starting college. Since then it has been featured by Apple a number of times in their back-to-school apps lineup. Note taking + audio recording + dropbox syncing goodness. http://itunes.com/apps/audiotorium
