    Pretty sure that would fall under the plain view doctrine (e.g. if they pull somebody over for speeding and smell drugs in the car they can totally arrest him for drug posession)

    I don't believe that, what would stop police from handing over that type of evidence?
  • Intel tried ray tracing years ago, while it...

    Intel tried ray tracing years ago, while it provides very nice results the problem is that you can achieve 99% by doing normal rasterisation and it'll be a lot faster to do so (Where it breaks down...

    Our government is combating action on climate change, does that count?
  • You can still do that with polygons fairly easily...

    You can still do that with polygons fairly easily (Clips planes, CSG, etc.), it's just that it works better with voxels because they natively have a notion of an "inside", you can clip a voxel and...

    Which I think is saying something about the usefulness of this tech, nobody else wants to replicate it.
  • Haven't they been claiming it's a large...

    Haven't they been claiming it's a large breakthrough for half a decade at this point?
  • Yeah, Sony wants another PS2, not another PS3,...

    Yeah, Sony wants another PS2, not another PS3, it's to be expected and it isn't some kind of dire warning.

    I'll be replacing my 570 with a 980 as soon as reasonably possible.

    The improvements for real time GI and improved shadow map rendering is really exciting, along with the increased GPGPU...

    If they're searching for weapons and find something it's fine, if they're chatting to you in the living room and decide to rummage about in your drawers then it's not fine, etc.

    Pretty sure if the police come across something while searching for evidence of another crime it's fair game, problem is in this case there wasn't another crime being committed.

    Uh, pretty sure the PS4 is outselling the Xbone pretty much everywhere, no idea where you got the idea that the PS4 was a failure.

    The government ruled out changing it, but the law does state that words alone don't count as provocation.

    Maybe we should do something about that then instead of claiming the problem doesn't exist or doesn't matter.



    Sure, if they were being paid $1 then 3-6 cents wouldn't matter, but people earn...

    How is it proven wrong if there's still a 4.8%-7.1% pay difference for the same job?

    It might be better than it used to be, but it's still a problem.

    Even with automatic downloads on it didn't automatically download for anybody in my family, even then it's not hard to remove from your account (It's a setting in the account page).

    No, the point of net neutrality is to treat all traffic equally, not that all connections must be equal (If that makes any sense) They just have a better connection to the universities, they're not...

    It's in-engine with actual game content, the difference is that it's not real time (They turn everything up to 11 and render it to a much higher resolution backing store to avoid aliasing effects,...

    We should give ASIO access to all our emails and web/phone history, that's sure to stop it.

    It comes down to how it's implemented (And how fair it is for the consumer) it needs to comply with the local laws and give the user a chance to reject it (i.e. you can't throw up the EULA after...

    Very first thing it did for me was make "swooshing" noises for a while, then it decided to start talking.

    Love how much weight it has to it, not just a cheap piece of plastic.

    JS has it's issues (Most of them down to how browsers implement stuff, but you've also got stuff like strings being UTF-16 so you get raw surrogate pairs), but memory isn't really one of them.

    As cool as multitasking is, the AI hasn't really improved much. Got into a situation where one Sim had multiple needs and the game couldn't decide which one to raise first, every time it went to do...

    How many times have you had a nap in the car because there's spilt gas in the car releasing fumes?

    One of the side effects of gasoline poisoning is drowsiness. Compounded with her having finished...

    This is an odd situation, wonder what caused the guy to decide out of the blue to send the DMCA (Considering that if he's right, it's been "infringing" since before he ever started contributing code)...

    That sounds odd to me, why would they be giving out keys that have a chance of already being used?

    Similar thing happened for me, fire alarm went off but nobody ever turned up, and I couldn't do anything because I kept getting the red "fire error"

    Nah, never went before the courts, and the courts don't really have that kind of power.

    They lowered the price of the cloud subscriptions, but that was it.

    Nah, the government will ask why prices are so different, Valve will say "Because they are", and that would be the end of it.

    Adobe claimed the reason why it was cheaper to fly to the USA, buy a...

    Good thing that didn't happen in this case then.



    Where's the proof of that then?

    I've seen people claim this before, but they never post any proof of these accusations, they just call me a...

    I can't really see the BBC running a story about how women are "ruining video games", Fox News always could though (Could get Rush Limbaugh in as a guest writer)

    Just got a chance to play it today, it's pretty good, better than base Sims 3 anyway.

    The lack of differentiation between the ages is really annoying though.

    Pretty sure our consumer laws only cover the case where the product was faulty/broken, it doesn't cover the case where you break it yourself.

    It's not the brain cells themselves, it's the connections between them (Assuming the research is on the right track)

    Somebody needs to defend Russia, because their army sure can't. They're currently in Ukraine by accident.

    As much as I'd love a 64bit binary, that isn't going to happen as long as they're targeting XP as a supported platform.

    They could ship a dual binary deal, but that greatly increases QA demands,...

    Like most disasters, Fukishima (And Chernobyl) wasn't caused by a single failure, it was a bunch of errors that added up.

    LTE gets pretty good throughput (Many times faster than my home internet connection), of course the gap between 3G and 4G is still huge.

    Pretty sure they're all intermingled too, so while you can select a specific games maps to play, you can also play every map suited for Slayer regardless of what game it originally came from, etc.

    3 and ODST both ran at 1152x640, Reach ran at 1152x720.

    I'd love to see upgraded versions of ODST and Reach, but I doubt we'd see that for a while, MC is their main focus.
