That being the case, why the hell is this Windows exclusive? Why not open it to Macs and desktop Linux?
A Sony rep mentioned on the PlayStation Blog today that they were evaluating Mac support. Obviously they can do it, because they are already doing it withPS4 Remote Play for Mac (interesting side note: the PS4 Remote Play for Mac app is significantly smaller than the Windows version. One of these days I'm meaning to look into why this is).
"With a Windows laptop or tablet, you aren't tethered to a big-screen TV. You could theoretically take these PlayStation games anywhere"
The article says it requires a DualShock 4 controller. I don't see how that will work with all Windows tablets, especially seeing as ARM-based Windows tablets (like the Surface 1 and 2 non-Pro) allow only XInput controllers (that is, Xbox 360 controllers and one Logitech model).
Sony also announced today a USB dongle for Mac and Windows that permits wireless DS4 connections. Assuming the tablet has a USB port you could presumably use that (although as of yet there is no word if it requires any special drivers or not).
Personally the extreme cost of the batteries (much higher than say a replacement engine) leaves me with big questions about how viable electric cars will be from a maintenance perspective.
They said the same thing about Prius batteries 15 years ago. Battery prices came down, and the batteries are very reliable. I still see some first generation Prii running around.
I don't know about KDE on Ubuntu, but I've been running our PCs on the KDE 4 DE in Linux Mint for years.
KDE dead? That's news to me. The website seems to still function. QtCon is still set to start in a few weeks. Plus Mint just released a Beta KDE version on it's newest version.
Ask Slashdot, that word you keep using, dead. I don't think you know what it means.
Posted from my still functioning LTS edition of Mint KDE.
Of course we all know, Android is the future. Resistance is futile.
Ok the 1k zx81 was never that good and the 16k spectrum was pretty good fun the 512k Amiga 500 was much better and the 2 megabyte A1200 was great especially with a 52 MByte quantum fireball hard drive. 68030 cpu in the trapdoor and an additional 4 MB of ram. It got me on the internet and aminet a wonderful archive of amiga software.
guess kids today can't comprehend running a full desktop on so little resources. It is still hard to comprehend why we now need so much.
Or have they figured out how to pack more kilowatt-hours into the same physical space?
Tesla is changing the battery format it uses now that the Gigafactory is open and they produce their own cells. This new cell design is optimized for the needs of Tesla, and not other things like laptops.
Perhaps the typical Fat Dumb American are actually intelegent people who cannot find work to match their potential.
Dude. I just could not read the rest of your comment. You start with broad categorization issues and proceed to misspell intelligent all in the first grammatically incorrect sentence.
You may have had something intelegent to say but fuck me. I couldn't get to it.
(sorry about being pedantic, it is not my normal mode)
And you know what, we are fine. Unless we are waiting for an asteroid strike, the zombie apocalypse or some other shit that collapses human civilization, we will be fine.
As a child, I wondered why the average person did not know this stuff. It forces us to be dependent on others if we do not know it... as an adult, it seems like a conspiracy. How can you be free if you are ultimately dependent on society for your survival?
Don't get me wrong, I think the benefits that society brings are extremely useful and desirable; however, I should have the ability to say, "fuck off" without dying.
The only people in the world who care about this data are people who sell devices to aid the activity. Whereas with my banking data, it is not only people who sell banking services that might want to steal it!
Try running for office and your "masturbation" details will be released. Oops.
For myself, I would not care if you used a vibrator or not but there are hundreds of thousands of mouth-breathers out there who do care.
While your argument is sound, my experience says that there must be more to it than that.
I had a 99 Saturn SL1. At 65mph it averaged, roughly 34mpg. At 80mph, it averaged roughly 38mpg. These numbers are from memory but they are roughly correct. It surprised me greatly to discover these numbers.
How can this be? I am unsure. Possibly something to do with gearing and RPMs. Weird, but empirical data outweighs theory every time.
One, the diagnostic phone home, is again on and takes a registry hack to turn it back off again.
Why would even bother? It is clear that the operating system is hostile to your interests so how can you be certain that hacking registry keys is making it behave the way you want it to behave?
I have completely and utterly severed myself from Microsoft in my personal life. There is nothing that is offered on that platform that is worth using that operating system. Granted, it took me reassessing why I used computers at all for me to be able to make such a choice, but just wow; how can anyone willingly participate in what Microsoft is shoving down our throats? It is better to not use computers at all.
