I want to see at least some of these thugs in the upper tiers behind bars!
I'd be happy to see them eat their own dog food. Put a GPS ankle-bracelet on them and make them live on the polluted land and drink the polluted water.
If they can figure out how to reprogram fat cells to be muscle cells, we can eat McD's for an entire month end up looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Ferrari is obviously awesome, the company understands what many people want in a car. Of-course few people can afford a car from a company that understands this, but then there is the government, which is actively against everything people actually want and the government has the power to destroy what the free market does to satisfy customer demand.
My point is: the roads. Ferrari needs to invest into building private roads around the world and it should lobby and ensure that gov't cops are NOT allowed on those roads and that people on those roads CAN in fact exercise their own will and do in their lives as they see fit rather than some collectivist mob version of totalitarian oppression control...
But does your Corolla show the world how big your dick is?
Yes, it does. It shows that his dick is pretty big and he doesn't have to rely on a flashy car to impress the girls.
Well, either that or he's skint and can't afford a Ferrari. Not sure which.
Right, you don't need 'Rock Star' developers.
You also don't need 'Rock Star' sales people.
You don't need 'Rock Star' management.
You don't need 'Rock Star' marketing.
You don't need 'Rock Star' janitors.
You can live without any of that and actually be a profitable venture, but how are you going to improve, what is going to be a good motivator to try and achieve more, how will the company distinguish itself among all the rest?
An interesting study would be to compare long term survivability of companies with and without 'Rock Star' in the ranks and management.
Sorry, Dice, I do not come here for multimedia. But I will come and bitch about it in the comments (wasting resources is my revenge).
Hmm. A couple of hundred bytes for your message and overhead, perhaps?
Post another ten *billion* messages like that and you'll have wasted an entire $110 (US) hard drive! If you can't manage that, remember at least that every message you type wastes a millionth of a cent's worth of storage. Please show *some* mercy and leave them a bit for coke and hookers, though.
It shouldn't be a special "gaming mode" to begin with; it should be an intrinsic feature of the display.
If- and I mean if- the extra features which cause the lag are a noticeable improvement for normal (i.e. non-interactive) viewing, then there's no reason why the minimalist gaming mode should be forced on users in such situations.
It made me wonder if we've been invaded by Digg Patriots or something.
Doubt it; Digg has been a has-been since its failed redesign alienated users a few years back. Any rats have long departed that now-sunk ship. No great loss, it *very* quickly devolved, becoming an illustration of how the smug Web 2.0 "wisdom of crowds" mantra in practice resulted in a partisan and manipulable mob mentality.
I am still using my 19.5" Sharp CRT from January 1996. It still works as of last night. I will replace it when it dies/starts having problems.
As I sit here typing this, my 14" Sony Trinitron from August 1993 (i.e. just turned 20) is on behind me. It's never *once* been fixed or maintained, yet still gives an almost good-as-new picture. Best £200 I ever spent (almost £350 in today's money and still worth it).
call me selfish, but I'm way more concerned about attempt by its competitor, to enforce digital only games.
Bastards, I want my analogue games!!!
You will find that the majority of decision makers around the world, whether in buisiness or government, will not care as much about this in the long run as you do.
In other words, what you say should be true in book form but will not be true in practice. Many people/governments will not even bother looking to see who is behind what, they will be looking to see if it is an industry accepted standard and our personal concerns will rarely change those. If it could, we wouldn't see wireless at half these businesses.
