- so every second line consists of pixels from previous frames, but those are still pixels that are not the same as the ones in the current frame, the output has all of the 1920x1080 pixels in it, it's not like 2 lines of pixels are just 1 line stretched vertically. Technically Sony should win this.
That's a bit disingenuous. Could they render at 320x240 and stretch to fill so the output resolution is still technically 1080p and still advertise "1080p" support?
I didn't say anything about trying harder. What I said was there is a reason minimum jobs pay minimum wage. I understand if that's all your capable of, and it's great that there is a place for people of lesser capability in the workforce. My main point was that minimum wage jobs pay minimum wage for reasons that are easy to understand.
If you have the skills and experience and responsibility of a teenager, or an illiterate foreign worker, or a disabled person, you should realize first and foremost that you aren't contributing to society as much as many others who don't make minimum wage. Cherry-picking examples of privileged people who might make more than minimum wage without making a fair contribution is simply a red herring. You and you alone don't contribute enough to society to earn the privilege of having a private residence. You don't contribute enough to eat out and afford luxury items. Nobody owes you those things.
What I wouldn't agree with however would be blood-seeking legislation that does not carefully factor in the disparity in the actions taken by computers and their owners. There's a reasonable debate to be had about responsibility and negligence, but proving beyond reasonable doubt that the attack was actually perpetrated by Mr. Roger B. Jones, with intent, is much harder than proving an attack originated from an IPv4 block assigned to his ISP, and possibly allocated by DHCP at that time to a modem currently registered an account owned by Mr. Roger B. Jones. My worry is that the courts probably won't care, and that's a dangerous path and I'd dare you to throw the first stone.
Then I suggest to go ask an engineer or scientist that does not see the internet as arcane magic. It's nowhere near as complicated as you appear to think.
Exactly! I plug my Internet cable into my Internet box and it's there on my screen. What's more to know?
