Can we stop for a minute and reflect on the fact that the price of a single episode of a single TV show is $685,000? That is absolutely insane. I mean you want to talk about corporate greed, lets start with that.
They promoted it for like a week when it debuted and then basically left it to rot. Not exactly sure what their goal there was but I think it was just an attempt to jump in on the streaming video service market when it was hot.
The GM version (Colorado/Canyon) isn't much different. They're almost the same size as a C/K1500 was back in the mid 90s. The Toyotas and Nissans are smaller but they're still way bigger than the old S10/Ranger/Dakota type pickups.
My first conclusion was this was done in a sim as well until I watched the video. It is impressive, but I'll buffer that by saying this particular sim racer in the video has/does race real cars as well so it's not like he's jumping straight from video games into a car for the first time.
Methinks this is a case of "consoles aren't powerful enough and the next gen isn't going to be any better so we'll build our own". Ian mentioned several times in various interviews about PC2 that consoles were being a limiting factor in what they could accomplish with the game.
That said, the...
Well shit son, when you're making 60-80% gross on product why the hell wouldn't you try to keep it that way? Memory is (A) used in damn near everything from PCs/Laptops to all the "Smart™" devices running around and (B) a market you can't just waltz into because, as with a lot of things...
So they'll keep removing things that people actually use (*cough*headphone jacks*cough*) so they can continue putting in stupid "toy" features that will be used for all of 5 minutes before getting lost in the dustbin of pointless software bloat.
Expect Walmart to follow suit. Commerce has been in a race to the bottom for years and they may finally have hit that bottom (or are at least getting close to it). If Walmart can turn a bit of extra profit while still remaining "competitive" with Amazon they will definitely do it.
As a business owner and rural resident I call bullshit. Odds of these funds being actually used to improve rural infrastructure are minimal (nobody is going to expand to an area with an already thin and still-shrinking customer base no matter how much grant money you throw at them) and...
If it results in a net-positive for consumers (which generally does happen) then yes, competition is a good thing. However, in this specific case there isn't really a net positive that can be found. Prices aren't any lower and there aren't really any more features or desirable functions in any...
Whether you like the movies or not, you have to appreciate the sheer scale of this franchise. This simply hasn't been done before. The number of films, the continuity of the characters (seriously, Rhodes is like the only character who hasn't been played by the same actor), the scale of the main...
So they start off by admitting that there's more than one way to "enhance the experience" meaning that, if loot boxes were banned, game publishers have other options for generating extended revenue. Not a great way to set up your argument.
False. In-game items are routinely traded for...
And by doing this they are promoting synergy between their core brands and verticals while more closely aligning with their company values in a way which will allow for expanded outreach to a global marketplace without sacrificing their commitment to diversity.
Presumably this was done so that they could run more server instances on the same or cheaper/less hardware.
Next they'll come out with a subscription service that offers "premium" servers and experiences for a $14.99/mo fee which plops players on servers with the original, higher tickrate.
Doesn't really take much to store things like contact details and searched-for addresses. Plus, this is talking about factory systems, not aftermarket. You seldom ever get any actual specs on what the factory systems are capable of without tearing into them.
Oh fantastic. So if I happen to be out with a group of friends and happen to leave my coat behind someplace, that means god-knows-who now has access to my place?
Yea. I'll stick to plain old "dumb" clothes to go with my "dumb" TV, "dumb" car and "dumb" phone.
Backing up your system being a good idea aside, $10 says the data is/was still sitting in the C:\users\user directory and they didn't notice they were in a separate profile folder after the update.
