Comment Re:I don't buy synthetic fibers (Score 1) 172

When you're sitting on them all day or wearing tight clothes or sleeping in them, I imagine the dust-sized pieces can easily do so, not to mention the chemicals they are treated with such as flame retardants, Teflon, formaldehyde... And when all these are absorbed through the skin it bypasses the liver

Comment Re:Try the study with commercials (Score 1) 139

British TV shows have 6 episodes, much easier commitment to run through an entire series. American TV shows are maybe 12-20 episodes per season.

Personally I only binge to catch up on a newly discovered gem, and then watch episodes of various shows here and there on rotation when I am caught up to make it last until next season.

Comment lol, very opportunistic of them to ask now (Score 2) 175

They refused with FFXI, FFXIV, Borderlands 2, Steam when Valve were trying to get Portal 2 cross platform multiplayer/voice etc. Sony accepted by the way.

Of course now lagging behind online with Xbox and Windows Store they are shamelessly doing a reversal...

Here's a classic quote from back in the day, the same kind of thing they're chiding others for saying currently, via Kotaku:

"Here's a Microsoft spokesperson saying "no," while promoting how awesome the Xbox 360's online service is: "Xbox Live delivers the best entertainment experience unmatched by anyone else, with 35 million actively engaged members. We have a high level of expectation for our game developers to ensure that all Live experiences remain top notch. Because we can't guarantee this level of quality, or control the player experience on other consoles or gaming networks, we currently do not open our network to games that allow this cross-over capability.""

MS was asked many times to do cross platform networking, FFXI (MS refused, Sony did it square skipped MS with FFXIV), Borderlands 2, Steam w/Portal 2 on 360 (MS refused, Sony did it on PS3)

MS gave this reasoning via Kotaku: "Here's a Microsoft spokesperson saying "no," while promoting how awesome the Xbox 360's online service is: "Xbox Live delivers the best entertainment experience unmatched by anyone else, with 35 million actively engaged members. We have a high level of expectation for our game developers to ensure that all Live experiences remain top notch.

Now that they need players on Xbox Live and Windows Store and are having trouble making inroads in those areas, they're panhandling.

Comment Who cares about the Switch, make more SNES (Score 3, Interesting) 100

The SNES Classic is the item that won't be around next year, they need to make more of those. Nobody can get one, preorder availability was pathetic. Switch has a couple of games I want to play, SNES Classic has at least 10. Just make more of those.

Yes I have a SNES but not all of these games, but I want Star Fox 2, new official controllers, and a HDMI out.
