So essentially an elaborate method of sending a clear text sequence of numbers (port numbers) to the server to allow access.
I've always thought the itinerary of national events in the US should be as follows:
Make all three days a mandatory Federal Holiday:
July 2nd: Federal Income Tax filing due (instead of April 15th)
July 3rd: Election Day (Instead of Tuesday in November)
July 4th: Independence Day
Many problems solved, IMHO.
Are people using their Xboxes as PC replacements?
Gabe and Valve keep talking about innovation but it's now been nearly 3 years since they floated the piston box prototype and with this new announcement we'll be waiting for another prototype in spring 2014. Exactly how long does it take to build a special purpose PC? That is all this Steam Machine is after all, correct?
The last time I paid attention to what Valve had to say it was Gabe back in 2010 or so talking about how with the Steam platform they would be delivering small incremental updates to Half-Life 2 instead of the "lengthy" episodes or even longer Half-Life 3 box sequels. Sorry Gabe, but 2014 is around the corner meaning it's been 7 years since Half-Life 2 Episode 2. You want the industry to follow your company's lead with Steam and games on demand type development then please lead by example.
Suddenly millions of people cried out at once when they realized they haven't used a PC expansion slot in over 5 years.
The "PC enthusiast" scene has been quietly dying for years.
I'm sure the books were so good that even without the success of the World of Warcraft game this movie would've gotten greenlighted.
Probably waited a little too long. Story went off the rails around Cataclysm. Problems with class imbalances favoring overpowered death knights and paladins are so 2007 and 2008. Even the Mists of Kung-Fu Panda complaints are so last year.
That Cinnamon Control Panel looks very similar to OS X's System Preferences.
You can't trade used games in Steam, either. You'll need to find another example to compare your disappointment with the new Xbox with.
Does the new Xbox One not play games?
Then what's your problem with it? So the new TV features aren't for you, so what? I too play my Xbox 360 on a smaller TV in a bedroom but I do understand that many people have it in their living rooms as an entertainment hub. That doesn't prevent me from playing games the way I want.
Keep an eye on the newer Yahoo mobile apps. I tried the new weather one and was happily surprised. I still use GMail and probably will for a long time forward but I'm watching Yahoo now.
Microsoft is a software company, right?
Demo isn't really a demo, he doesn't open up anything or scroll much, just shows off a bunch of icons.
Sounds like it might be a problem on your phone. I haven't seen this problem at all on iPhones.
A big bang, if you will.
