Wheely, wheely mad: Petrolheads fume over buggy Formula One app

Re: F1 is pants...

I came to the conclusion years ago that sadly the tech has completely fucked F1. and i can't see a way back.

get rid of telemetry

get rid of pit to car radio

return manual gearboxes, foot clutches, no anti-stall

drop drs

all petrol lose this electric shite

use all the tyres, gearboxes and engines you want

practice when you want

but none of that will happen, may as well add, wake shumi and resurrect ayerton.

i still watch, with 1 eye just hoping for crashes

I'm all for freedom, and usually have a good chuckle when politicians wade in on the subject of teh intertubes trying to emphasise the bigness of their dicks, and generally fucking it up.

but this is pretty fucking outrageous.

Seems pretty clear that the operator is engaged in the business.

Re: Phony Bastard!

That's as maybe, and IMHO he is a monumental tit, but in this instance he's doing the right thing for whatever reason and deserves support.

Re: Legal reasoning.

Rather famously in the US in some states they can take whatever the hell they want and don't even need to go to the trouble of trumping up charges, let alone convicting you, mere allegation is all that's required.

IN YOUR FACE, Linux and Apple fans! Oculus is Windows-only for now

Naughtyhorse
Silver badge

dunno...

maybe the 3 odd years of development from VC to kickstarter, to more VC and finally FB, all the trade shows and 1000's of devkits in the wild, all the conversations with developers...

Could be they have a vague idea where their market actually is.

From what I have heard of the guys at oculus it aint their first rodeo.

Re: Serious question ...

resolution will be an issue, from what I have heard it's impossible to read standard in game text in the devkit, so i would imagine the kind of crisp display cadders are used to will be out of the question for a few iterations. also there's motion sickness to consider, it's improving all the time, but still nowhere near the sort of thing you would want to (or most people would be able to) wear for 5 or 6 hours a day.

I think HoloLens is more likely to achieve traction in design applications, at least to start with.

Many decades ago there was a great article about him in the back of 'wireless world' apparently went to a very progressive school where the kids were encouraged to devise their own curriculum, so he never took an english class in his life!

Top bloke of the century (Tesla excepted, of course, as usual - he was a time traveller who got stuck in his distant past, so fair to leave him out).

While stereo and PAL TV(I believe he was working on it at the time of the crash, amongst other things)

he also invented the cathode follower - or amplifier to you and me, and the integrator, which he rather kindly dubbed the miller integrator.

In short the man invented electronics, yet is less celebrated than Dr.Kanye-Z

disgraceful.

To be fair...

the pig-arse ugly watch is not all bad...

apparently if it feels the user is not being active enough it sends an alarm to tell them to move... all synched to 10 to the hour.

to observers of the herd this will provide endless hours of amusement as at ten to the hour, all the sheeple in the room stand as 1.

Not really newsworthy

Had a friend who about 30 years ago became a school governor in a very right thinking part of the country, and in passing one of the other governors, a police officer, made a causal enquiry as to whether my friend was still a member of the communist party.. a party he had left some 20 years before.

Re: pocket money

dunno about your dad, but when i got a job he didn't insist i repay _all_ my pocket money plus 25% before I got to keep _any_ of my earnings. (+ rent, food and clothing)

As for the investments, I'm not sure exactly how much google have spent on server farms and comms, and coding, and indeed marketing, but i'll give you a pound to a pinch of shit that the figure would make a typical Sony BMG exec run home to his mummy.

all of which is available for 'free' no contract, no lock in (the OP notwithstanding) plus they do all that stuff the old industry did! and if you met many a&r men you would know that it is infinitely more enjoyable to have a conversation with a php script. :-)

It's a quaint idea that the record companies ever had anything to do with 'the future of music' they never did, any more than google, spotify or itunes do today, they are businesses. they do market research and when they see something sell, they buy something similar... cheap (and therein lies the rub).

EMI never taught anyone E A and B7, or suggested syd barrets eyes were like black holes in the sky.

I really can't see a difference today, apart from the consumers perspective where music is infinitely more available than before. The world is still full of kids sweating it out over E A and B7, one day maybe he'll be the next john lennon - in which case he'll end up loaded, or on the other hand he almost certainly won't - and get a steady job as a painter and decorator. same as it ever was.
