...to have seen the robot vs a person moving the tray. This wasn't robot vs human. This was robot vs wiimote lag. The video only serves to demonstrate my biggest problem with the Wii as a platform - it's far too imprecise for anything that doesn't require flailing the remote like a spaz.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Wait, so Apple fixed a hardware error and we should cheer them for it? After they gave her the runaround twice? Yes, stellar customer service there.
That's an issue that should have been resolved the first time she brought it to the store. If not then and there she never should have been required to mail the laptop back herself. Which then should have never been returned without a repair.
I'm sure there are many happy Apple customers, I just don't think that's the best story to show how great their service is.
Here come the 50 slashdot fuddy duddies bemoaning the label the ESRB has chosen to distinguish games with content not meant for children.
Please tell us more stories about how checkers and Mario Party are the most mature games you've ever played. It's a very interesting and fresh perspective.
I have never purchased a game that wasn't in a store. I don't know many people who have. I have never PURCHASED Linux or Open Office. It seems silly to do so. How do you think developers get hot in the first place? Sales. Good luck with your hobby.
Perhaps my memory is failing me, but what had better graphics than Quake when it was released?
You need a citation to prove that you need to pass certain criteria to get in? Go look at any college's admission requirements.
James Cameron is good at making a two hour special effects laden chase scene. Looking for any depth or masterful storytelling in his movies is disappointing, but that's not why I'm seeing a James Cameron movie anyway.
So explosions and giant, pretty looking smurfs can un-shite a rehashed plot? The GP didn't say it looked poor visually. "Oooh, shiny" says nothing about the story. Which is all I'm looking for anyway. I can live with low budget effects. Not so much low budget story and acting.
And this isn't me passing judgment on the movie. I obviously haven't seen it yet. I reserve the right to wait and see.
Forget about repair. We can't even get paralyzed people into motorized wheelchairs!
Situations appear to be different in different areas of the country. In several districts in Florida (possibly all of Florida) a master's degree in your field is highly encouraged for HS level and it will come with a substantial bump in pay. In my high school we had quite a few PHDs teaching courses (sadly no nobel prize winners). No degrees in education are required, but a teaching certificate is.
I THINK they're starting to slide retirement plans towards glorified 401Ks and the health insurance plan is absurdly expensive if you want to cover anyone other than yourself.
As for pay scale - it's certainly a livable wage, but nothing comparable to what a person with a master's could be earning in another field.
Yes please. What I need now more than anything is a thumbstick to move and a brick to shake to do every other action. Because it would be fresh and exciting.
I'm bitter about my Wii purchase. Does it show?
Don't do this: "I may encourage you to run it too"
If you won't do this: "What do I care if Linux works for you?"
Or if you do, don't be surprised when people get turned off by Linux and go back to Windows.
Except I don't get charged $30-$50 for it to be shipped to my house. When I bought my TV about two years ago, I couldn't find the model cheaper than Circuit City or Best Buy after shipping. I could have added Circuit City's extended warranty and only been $20 over the best price I could find online after shipping. And Circuit City had it delivered to my house the next day. For free.
