Re: Its all about games
I fully expect the games to go up with the next consoles, like they have with every console generation.
What planet are you from? Games used to cost £60 new and then was when £60 was more than it is now... £40 was standard 10 years ago.
Re: W T F ??
Is it mandatory to use Kinect? Can't you just not plug it in?
Re: No - Kill The XBOX ONE with FIRE - don't reward DRM + Spying
Yeah, the PS4 was rumoured to do the same things as the One, absolutely no reason they won't introduce similar stuff if it becomes seen as OK with the masses.
Re: The 360 cannot live like XP did
MS could have killed XP by ceasing support/updates for that, too.
Re: I don't want ANOTHER language
A new language is categorically the wrong direction for back-end development, and my whole point is I want the same language usable for front & back-end, so libraries can be written only once.
Re: 2000 - 3000 developers ?
Yeah but I doubt even WinXP had that many devs
What's wrong with the Eadon login?
Also, please stop anthropomorphising a gigantic corporation.
Re: Nobody trusts Google
Apart from how WP's market share has been growing steadily you mean? What IS the pecking order now... Android, iOS, WP, BB or is there one inbetween two of those I forgot?
iPhone has shown expansion and so on are not features the general public consider critical. It makes no sense to cram every feature into every phone when more people would be put off the bulkiness than are turned on by those features. They have phones with these features for the (apparently niche) market who require them.
Re: I don't want ANOTHER language
How about improving a language that already exists?
You can replace the battery?
I don't want ANOTHER language
The answer to making things easier is not to create more and more languages.

Ah, the Sleeper Service approach to laptop design... fill every cubic inch with SSD.
Re: Loose talk costs
Clearly you don't tell them where you are working at that early stage.
Surely the brash style is deliberate... he wants to make it very clear that he is not writing about what is right or wrong, how things should happen, or what he likes or dislikes about the world of recruitment, only the facts about the system so you can play it to your advantage.
Some of us actually use computers to get work done.
Where are all the news stories about .NET being an insecure POS? Or are you just against anything that isn't FOSS regardless of if it's actually any good? What'd you rather they use, PHP (laugh).
Where did they say 18% of its quality was lost? When you wear sunglasses does what you see lose quality, or just look a bit darker?
One issue for me though is that if you have to ramp up the screen brightness to compensate, won't that use extra power?
It's almost like he thinks he knows more about the recruitment world than we do.
Re: The Sun @h3
I don't think anyone who uses the phrase "dumbed down" is in any position to complain about changes to the standards of education since they attended school.
Re: A win for the consumer or just FB re-adjusting its trousers...?
Why can't it be both? The most effective ads are ones that get noticed but don't irritate people by getting in the way.
Re: "XBOX Vista" already dead?
You guys don't get it. Sure, moving house or if your ISP going down are a PITA but people are not going to make a decision on which console to buy based on the one which will work when they move house, something they do perhaps every couple of years. Most people won't even think of this fact when buying (tech-savvy people are like 1% of console owners) and even if they do, it's not the big issue. It's like saying nobody will take out a Netflix/Spotify subscription because they won't be able to watch TV or listen to music after they move house... it's an inconvenience (I just moved house!) but people still use those services.
All the people who use their PCs and PS4s to play online games won't be able to play them for two weeks either, but I've never read a review of a multiplayer-focused game which marksa game down because you can't play it after you move house.
As for dodgy internet... phoning home is not using a lot of data, it's just logging in.
And if it's really an issue... just run your phone as a MiFi for a few minutes.
Re: "they probably won't have a real debate about selling more at the correct price"
I was being sarcastic, to highlight that even if they did sell it the exact same price everywhere, some people would still complain.
Re: Bad idea
Oh no, the government can kill my phone. Hardly near the top of my worries, like having them block my bank account.
Re: What's going on?
We've heard news before that Apple are under pressure to release iOS7 ASAP, rather than when they're ready too. Apple are one company who can play on their own terms so "release it when it's finished" has to be the right route here.
Re: Yes, because I associate quality with Best Buy
Dummies are not a niche.
The most boringly obvious choice
Pick someone who's already playing the role of an eccentric, almost alien genius, with floppy hair and no interest in women.
I really hope the BBC show more imagination.
"they probably won't have a real debate about selling more at the correct price"
Yet they probably won't have a real debate about selling more at the correct price. They'll just assume they're making more money by gouging the Australian people.
There IS NO "the correct price" you idiot. That's the whole bloody point. Even if there were, it wouldn't be the same price everywhere... if you sell it for $500 everywhere then it is cheaper for people in countries with higher salaries, that's not fair for people in poor countries...
Re: Hash tags make sense
Yeah, they're essentially just tagging which is tried and tested and makes perfect sense in this context.
Re: hundreds of chest x-rays worth of radiation
Good to know JP19 is here to refute people who actually study physics for a living.
Nowhere did the article say dark lightning risks x-ray exposure. gamma rays are not x-rays (well there's a cross-over but the principle applies).
Re: It was bound to happen - somebody LISTENED to CUSTOMERS...
They haven't listened to what customers want, they have just taken the gold-plated opportunity to profit from MS' foolishness. Sony are ONLY doing this to steal MS customers and make more money, there is nothing close to "doing good" here, just a shrewd financial move.
Re: Pricing FAIL
Perhaps because of import duties? Perhaps because you live so far away from the rest of us?
Re: "XBOX Vista" already dead?
Except that to many players, having to phone home every day is inconsequential as it will always be online through WiFi.
The 2nd-hand game issue is the thing which could scupper MS, but I'm not convinced of that... yet.
Re: relies on DJs to choose the music rather than algorithms
If you don't want to hear people talking, don't listen to the radio, listen to a CD, you moron. The whole point of radio is it's not just playing CDs back to back.
Re: a 3 page credit-card form every time you want to buy something?
I hope you leave your credit cards at home when you go out too, just in case someone mugs you.
You know deep down every iPhone user is going to look at this and think "well, they kept telling me this was better than the competition for all those years
Yeah, the average Apple user definitely thinks all that, rather than just buying iPhone because it;s cool and pretty. People buy phones because they like them, not as a result of prolonged introspection.
