Comment: Sega died with its hardware (Score 1) 153

Everyone looked forward to getting all of sega's great games on any system when they got out of the hardware business. But unfortunately they seemed to lose all their talent with the hardware and just resorted to knocking out Sonic games and the odd Crazy Taxi game. At his best Sonic was never that good. You can't maintain a company with Sonic games.

That's just stupid. Technology can replace jobs. Saying that just because factories didn't take jobs away from farmers forgets that the reason for that is because you're changing different jobs but they require humans to do them. The point of using robots and computers is to reduce the number of people required. And no, not everyone can be a programmer. If they could then programming would be a minimum wage job.

All the carriers work with Apple and they've got no control over iPhone. It's easy to blame the carriers but it's not even like Google had to do it first. Apple set a precedent and Google choose to do another way. A way that just happens to make it hard to lay blame on anyone in particular.

I had a G1 and that definitely quit receiving updates before the 2year contract ended. You'd think Google would try to forward the best image for their debut android device. I've got a friend who has a hard-on for android so he's always stuck with them despite his experiences on updates are similar. His argument is that he can root it which is correct but you should not need to root the thing just to get updates and the vast majority of people can't or won't do that.

You can be replaced by this computer.
