Never understood smoking

Along with a lot of friends never understood why people started.

School smokers used to get flak from the ordinary pupils, and I remember getting a prefect into trouble, she told me to do lines, I told no, she reported me, I reported her for smoking on the school bus and she got the bollocking.

But then as soon as I was 16 I rode to school, saved an hour a day for 5p of petrol, own transport beats smelling any day of the week.

Re: DoA failures

I am pretty sure lead free solder is responsible for YLOD. And partly responsible for RROD.

Cracking solder joints with an inflexible solder.

Leaded solder still allowed AFAIR for life critical systems.

Re: Sony does similar, LOOK AT SOURCE CODE

I only have one question about this, one word, three letters.

Why?

Why report every key press made, that is just silly, what can they do with the information?

The ONLY things I can think of are.

1) Seeing what features are used.

2) If it gets a faulty afterwards - bug trapping.

3) Some numpty left some code in.

Done a search and found this

Sony TV source code

So have a look and let us know why your TV is doing this.

Relevant advertising

That was more of a worry.

Why does Lucky Goldstar need to advertise on your TV?

My own TV is supposedly smart (actually not very) so simply no network cable is plugged in.

I know someone with a Samsung smart TV, again not very.

Re: Take the figures with a pinch of salt

And the voice control is not that good on X1 either, turns off your TV when you ask it to turn on.

Switches to another profile it they walk in front of the camera.

Quits a game and does not save if it miss hears your TV channel name for a game name.

None are perfect.

Re: Hardware non-issues - Graphics

Actually it depends on the studio.

RSX is quick but limited in power, but to make up for the power difference it is able to communicate with the Cell using a high speed bus.

So Xenos is more powerful but slower than the RSX, the Cell more powerful than the Xenon, but PS3 uses a high speed parallel bus to link them.

Since the SPUs can be used for graphics, it means that it is possible for PS3 to pump out better graphics. But 360 is easier to code for.

I still find the quality amazing on such games as Uncharted 2 & 3, The Last Of Us and Killzone 3.

Also not many multiplatforms are that different, usually it is a bit here a bit there, draw distances to one and textures to the other.

Re: Keyboard mouse yawn

Well after playing KBM & controller then have their plus and minus points.

Mouse better to aim.

Controller better to move around.

Motion controls were a good idea with FPSs on Wii and PS3 with Move.

Pity they have been abandoned for the new generation and yes Guerilla Games I am pointing at you!

Re: Dreamcast & Nintendo/Sony

Dreamcast was pretty good, but was a bit gimmicky.

Could have done with twin sticks, the plug in cartridge is a bit weird, GDROM is limited compared to DVD.

Was good graphics, definately same generation as PS2.

Sony entered the market after Nintendo went Philips for the CD drive and Sony had developed one for Nintendo.

I think MS entered partly due to the Dreamcast running Windows CE.

Re: Expensive TV

I LIKE my TV, it gets a lot of use so may as well have one I like.

Some people buy expensive cars (I do when they are cheap), some people go and spend a fortune on sports team tickets. I like a really good TV, put a really good film on - like the cinema.

£400 on a TV

For a main living room TV maybe 25 years ago.

But prices are more since then.

32" widescreen CRT IDTV was over £1000

My LCD panel is over £1500

Before you criticise I have owned a total of 5 TVs in my life including 2 portables

Re: COD

We do not play COD.

COD is for people who cannot handle more tactical shooters.

Personally I am excited and nervous for Killzone Shadowfall.

Excited because it is an FPS I can actually play.

Nervous because I got into top 2000 using Move and they don't support it any more.

As for PS+, already have that, and still wrking through the backlog of games.

Seen some multiplayer footage on a XB1 and to be honest it looked all rather pants.

So called next generation but still 720p.

More partical effects and better graphics on some of this generations games,

I am just glad I never bought into the hype.

1000 for @ £70 (Killzone 3, multi player DLC, Navigation controller also used with a few other games)

100 for £15 (ME2 in a sale)

Perhaps some reclassification required

We all know Dolphins are pretty clever, not too far behind the average human. And ahead of the average chav.. And a long long way ahead of food animals. (Cattle are pretty thick)

Yet it is illegal to hunt chavs for food so why are Dolphins not protected by law? Why should a sentient animal be hunted like this?

I would also rather that chavs were used as pet food rather than intelligent animals.

TBH I would also include the great apes in the protection.
