I kinda miss that guy.
lol. It was only a throwaway Pub Landlord reference!
"get out of here Stalker!"
For you maybe.. F3 and F:NV (via Steam) run just great on my Win7 (and now Win8) machine. Did Steam release a patch for it maybe?
Anyone can do it, and it's free:
FFS. I did the first update from the Store - easy. Then when Update 1 was released it popped up and installed in a couple of minutes. How do you people cope when something really bad happens?
He's right, I've had Phone 8.1 for weeks. It's great! Well, better.
Have a click for giving me a laugh this morning
Don't like the new 'pretty' versions with trillions of weapons but the PlayStation port of the original version still gives endless hours of hilarity (especially with with Banzai Mode, Sheep and Banana Bombs enabled)
Also great fun was 4-on-screen Timesplitters, with sneaky peeking at the other players of course :)
And I got all my mates into Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, one of the best multiplayers ever!
On my 2nd XPS desktop at home and Optiplex & Latitude for the last few years at work. Decent value/performance, no failures. My next machine will be a Dell!
I was thinking the same thing. I'd snap up a couple of Surface 1's for £99 and while in the short term it would take sales away from the Surface 2, it would massively grow the RT user base and would be good for the platform and its Store. I don't think it would do much damage to what's already a rather beleaguered brand. C'mon Satya, make a bold first move!
But Miyazaki, surely?

The word is "prise", unless you're a septic tank. Thank you!
How do you put up with that? I'd have nuked/reinstalled it ages ago.
I got Win8 early on and started off using the 'modern' apps for email, FB, news etc. I've found that I've slowly and subconsciously moved back to doing everything on the desktop. I've also installed Start8. I did try TIFKAM but it's just too difficult and frustrating to do what you need to do. Win8 itself is brilliant though - rock solid and very fast.
Joaquim? Were you thinking of something else?
Really enjoy these vintage articles - thanks very much. I even have a new-found admiration for AMS after that!
+1 for mentioning Runaway!
Not Sales, thank you!

Looks like by the time this comes out screens will be old hat and we'll be projecting images straight onto our retinas:
They also claim to have created nuclear fusion and found a unicorn lair.
I'll do it
In X-Men: First Class the SR-71 not only carries passengers but is VTOL too!
and thinking how much I preferred the colour scheme of the mock-up to the primary colours on the final design (apart from the lemon yellow that is). Great article, thanks for the memories
The B-Ark is being built!
Yeah, definitely upside down. Invert one of the pictures and look at the people.
But why are the photos upside-down?
Get a Philips DCC deck - about £20 on eBay these days. They play cassette tapes as well as DCC, sound pretty good and have a digital output. Much better than those crappy USB gadgets.
How about because I'm a C# dev by trade who uses Cubase 7 to make music in the evenings, when I'm not playing Fallout NV or Bioshock Infinite.
Yeah all those companies that paid out when they didn't have to went out of business.
That'll get the mercury rising at Sky
I bloody hate DAB. We get iffy FM reception so after being bombarded with adverts on the BBC with 'D Love' going on about how great DAB is we took the plunge. It's completely useless, we get no BBC stations whatsoever or the wife's Classic FM. We get something called 'Heart' which is terrible and sounds like it's underwater half the time, and 'Gaydar' which is clear as a bell. Thanks. Fortunately the thing is also an iPod dock. So is it our fault because we live in a coalmine or in the Outer Hebrides? No, we live on the south coast, near Brighton, along with a few million other people.
"I'm proud to say that I have only once tasted an item on their menu. It was so bad that after one mouthful, it went into the nearest bin. Since then, I have never felt the need to visit them again and if I have anything to say about it, I never will in this life."
Blimey, talk about being on one's high horse.
Try a Big Mac, they're nice :oP
FutureShock999 is right of course, but transparent aluminium is also used in the viewports of the Enterprise-D so TFA was right (http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Transparent_aluminum). Thank you!
IIRC, it's basically a backronym and they named if after Eos, the goddess of the dawn. It's not a good one is it, It's a very dull phrase and doesn't even mention the autofocus, which was the big deal when the 650 first came out. Still got mine, works perfectly!
Yeah, I've got Ker-Plunk at home, why would I want this?
"I think the overheads for games is tiny anyway in comparison to the end price."
Yeah most artists and coders will happily work for free on a project for three or four years. Plenty of games, big and small, don't make their dev costs back.
I did the same as you, but I just ordered one using the link at the top of the article, worked for me (cue email in 5 secs saying they're out of stock)
People had no idea what iPads would be used for when they first appeared, but seem to have found lots of uses for them.
