$120 for DirecTV
$45 for Sling + Hulu + Netflix
Nah, no savings here. :rolleyes:
This is another pay TV shill article written by an idiot who thinks cutting the cord = you have to buy EVERY SERVICE YOU CAN. Sure, if you do, you're not saving money. Who the fuck does that?
Secondly, cutting the...
Cut the...satellite dish...a year ago, have been very happy.
Went from DirecTV Choice Xtra + Genie + Whole home w/2 extra rooms + Showtime was around $119/mo
Now using OTA + Sling Blue + Comedy Extra + Netflix 2 steams + Hulu limited commercial plan for like $45/mo. (I don't include the cost of...
Mario Kart 64, Diddy Kong Racing, and Wave Race 64 all run fine and control good with a 360 pad. Mario 64 has some graphical oddities every once in awhile but generally works and controls fine as well. Can't say I've tried many more than that.
I know there are wiki pages out there with the best...
Fresh install, no apps, Win7 boots on my SSD's to usable desktop in about 10 seconds; that's with everything in the background loaded. SATA6 interface.
Yes, Ubuntu MATE boots a few seconds faster than that to usable desktop.
IME Win7 is fast when it gives the impression that it's booted to...
Absolutely not, at MSRP.
> MSRP for what they were going for (2 and 3x the price), it's absolutely a bad value.
I was going to buy one on launch, for MSRP. That failed. The options then are 1) pay scalpers or 2) go elsewhere. I went with option 2.
I'll say it here and now, there's no way on...
Eh, partially true.
7 boots to usable desktop because everything fires up during the Windows boot process.
10 boots to desktop and pretends it's usable THEN starts loading everything else. It's a fake.
If you don't group taskbar notification icons, you see this clear as day.
One of the things...
There's also a niche for people who want those devices but aren't going to spend an arm and a leg for them.
FFS you can buy an actual NES and most of the games for less than the cost of a Classic when those were the hot item.
Or, there's the Pi. Has nothing to do with "cool kids on the...
Oh! Found the salty one! :whistle:
Congratulations on being "that guy". Way to make assumptions.
No one said anything about stealing.
I recommend you look up the legitimacy of roms and why and in what capacities they're not illegal.
I think most people who wanted an NES Classic bought a Retro Pie instead; at least, judging from what I've seen online, that was one of the most-common thoughts I've seen passed around.
If you want, you can buy a Raspberry Pi case that looks like an NES, and on top of that, the controller cords...
Actually I'm grateful, because it caused me to go out and build a Retro Pie instead for the same price as the MSRP, and now I get to laugh at all the people trying to find an SNES Classic, and eventually, the N64 Classic.
Meanwhile I get all of those games and systems, and a whole lot more, and...
