Exactly, I know in The Netherlands you're in big trouble as a school if you even *open* the packaged exams before they are going to be distributed to the pupils.
Well besides the fact that when you get a leak somewhere with a tank you still have time left (hopefully) to get to safety (depending on the size of the leak). A problem with the gills results in having no air whatsoever instantly. Dunno, I think I prefer tried and true technology in this case
I have this with the Amazon store from within the Kindle app. It's completely useless compared to the desktop website. Even things as simple as turning the author's name into a link to their other works just isn't there. And that's just a simple link, so it can't be because they need to make it work for simple devices. So they only reason I can come up with is that they simply don't care.
- an emphasis upon readability and a strong bias toward omission or elimination of potentially-harmful constructs,
- an extremely powerful type system combining subtype and parametric polymorphism with declaration-site variance, including first-class union and intersection types, and using principal types for local type inference and flow-dependent typing,
- a unique treatment of function and tuple types, enabling powerful abstractions,
- first-class constructs for defining modules and dependencies between modules,
- a very flexible syntax including comprehensions and support for expressing tree-like structures, and

*You* might find it unacceptable, but most people I showed it to (non-gamers all of them) find it a really nice experience. Yes, they notice the low resolution and some of them even mention the screen door effect. Most of them even get nauseous. And still, what they *really* want is something to do! Ok, nice demos, but *now what*?
You seem to forget they made really nice and hugely popular games when all they had was 4-color 640x480 monitors.
Of course I want higher resolution VR without screen door, but only because it will allow us to do so much more with it.
The *only* real obstacle I see is what was mentioned before: the motion sickness. If we can't get that down to more acceptable levels I wonder how many people will feel like going through the "training" to get accostumed to it...
Oh, I thought it was called "lots of practise"
And I still can't even get my quadcopter for a normal spin without crashing it into the nearest wall or tree!
How the heck can I get mine to hover at least somewhat in one place? I know these use the cameras for real precise tracking, but mine is the exact opposite it seems. Grrrr
Sure, but a party is not your own home, so either it's a public place and that would be illegal yes or at another private residence and how would you've gotten your hands on alcohol legally there? The owners aren't allowed to give it to you and you can't have brought it yourself. But in you own home you could legally drink. (At least that is how I understood US drinking laws)
I doubt you would be *drinking* illegally, it's the ones giving you access that would be at fault (and not many countries in the world make it illegal when you are in your own home drinking your parent's whiskey).
Irony definitely doesn't need to be negative (and often isn't), are you maybe confusing it with sarcasm? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irony
"incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result."
So in this case, of all the publishers, Nintendo is the last you'd expect to apply for this rating exactly because they're known for their family-friendly games (implying they wouldn't need 18+ ratings) , hence the irony.
Well this isn't the consumer model, that will come later and will most likely include headphones, who knows maybe even a mic, but this is probably more to see if the important tech can work out, headphones and mics are not the problem.
Monopoly is waaay older than that, it's at least from the 30s possibly even older! ^^
Oh yes, let's have MORE court cases! Especially the ones where it's this low-wage single mother going up against a multi-billion dollar company, those always turn out well. In the movies at least.
> that's own developers have shown no interest in creating a linux port, as I imagine will be the case with many many of the games that are on steam currently.
True, on the other hand many of the indie games have Linux versions, so if they all suddenly show up on Steam (hopefully they will finally apply a filter that won't show games you can't install, like Windows games showing up on OSX) other might start feeling the heat, especially when Valve can show the sales figures for those games to the ones that are doubting that there is any market. (One can hope hehe)
