Comment 3D (Score 5, Informative) 143

This all 3D-to-the-eyes is an old trick, but over the past year I've started to think that now theres actually good technology available for it.

I purchased myself the NVIDIA 3D Vision and played with it on various games. My favourite game for the past year has been left4dead and the 3D effect on it is really outstanding - everything looks so much scarier and you actually feel like being there.

The old cheap tricks are quite obsolote now as tech has improvent. But the future of gaming and movies surely is in this 3D and "be there" experience. Even MS and Sony have admitted that just pushing megapixels and polygony amount isn't the best thing, as they're at their maximum already anyway. We always see these things in movies, but the technology isn't really far from there now.

Now the only thing is about making it convenient for end users.

Comment Re:Want 64+core SMP systems? Intel Nehalem-EX in 2 (Score 1) 146

I generally agree. The writing is and has been on the wall since intel got their act together:
1) intel is winning due to volume and execution
2) there is room for other players in other niches (large=IBM Power, small=ARM, etc.)

The advantage Power7 will still have over intel cpu's is that they are designed for large scale SMP, intel will still not be able to touch Power7 in 32 and 64 proc systems.

I only consider Bribery truly immoral if its to commit an immoral act. To write? Writing isn't immoral under any circumstances, you can write as much as you bloody want and it won't hurt anyone physically, and if its hurts them in any other regard its their own fault.

So if someone writes something libelous against me, it's my own fault if it causes me to lose my job or my spouse or my life?

I think you underestimate the power of the written word.
