So, you're God every time you run a simulation?
Yes. To the entities inside the simulation you are, to all intents and purposes, their God.
That pretty much fits the job title of "Omnipotent entity that caused and controls everything", aka God.
Omnipotent except for the bugs.
If VR takes off. A 4k console would like the PS/2 and the PS/3 probably offer a player for 4k video aka 4k Bluray
4k is still the magic number needed for VR to have decent resolution since you always have to divide that number in half to get the 3d.
How do I "consume" e-mail hosting?
It isn't a resource that is depleted after I use it. It's a service. You can't "consume" an e-mail hosting service any more than you can "consume" a movie. You can consume a bagel, a glass of juice, or a hamburger. Fire can consume a building. But there is nothing consumable about using an e-mail service. Stop redefining words for marketing purposes.
Your consuming bandwidth and drive space on the server. Both are resources that are not infinite.
Not just that. People realize that so-called 'social media' is anything but, when it comes right down to it. Also, it's trendy as hell. Once it was AOL. Then it was Livejournal and Myspace. Right now it's Facebook. What we're seeing, however, is the Beginning of the End for Facebook (or at least I hope it is). A year from now, the next trendy 'social media' thing will emerge, and all the social-media sheep and attention whores will start migrating towards that, dragging their 'friends' (with a small 'f') with them. Hope for Zuckerbergs' sake he's invested all his millions into something conservative and sound, he's going to need that to live on when Facebook really does become Failbook and is worth nothing, gets sold off to some eastern europeans for a song.
Google+ is the future.......maybe not.
Imagine if you called Marcus
I'm sorry you've got the wrong number, this is 912.
I wonder about that all the time when it comes to superheroes. Superman may harness the power of the sun, but his exposed skin doesn't collect enough to lift up a truck or stop a speeding train. How many calories does that take? And the Flash... could run 2 seconds at top speed before exhausting all the calories he could consume in a month.
To be fair they do show the Flash constantly eating.
Remember you're dealing with a group of people (US leadership and US political candidates) who believe that there is a big ON/OFF switch for the Internet located in Bill Gates' basement.
No it's in Al Gore's basement.....he invented it after all.
...after all, programming humans via socializing is way more fun than programming computers.
Nah....too many bugs and no one to report them to,
If you don't believe civilians should be able to own any weapon our military is allowed to use, your out.
If you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're" - you're out.
Such thing haven't really mattered since the days of yore.
