This is fucking amazing:
I read the Gizmodo article on it. Apple is such a piece of shit.
I just got a bunch of coupon codes from Newegg.
I would use them but I have no money at the moment. I hate how these coupons show up at the worst time possible :(
The Andoid CS knockoffs are at least playable games, that just use sprites and textures taken out of Counter-Strike. They even made custom maps (or at least stole custom maps) to take screenshots of to use as backgrounds. Still unethical and probably illegal, but they at least put some of their own work into it, and aren't trying to mooch off the Counter-Strike brand.
The iPhone Pokemon shit is just wrong. It's blatant theft of Nintendo's brand, and an outright scam of customers. It's not even a playable game, it has precisely zero creative effort involved (although you have to laud the guy's chutzpah, thinking he could get away with this). I'm honestly surprised that it passed through Apple's vaunted approval process - you'd think an app has to actually *run* in order to be tested, right? And that someone, somewhere in the line, had to look at this game and say "yes, this is totally permitted".
✔ "Fantastic and addictive gameplay. Six stars." 5/5
we just set our christmas tree alight
it was beautiful
Good god, what the fuck happened to this thread?
Anyway, one of my friends thinks opening task manager puts a scratch on your hard drive.
Raid-10 will actually lower your access times a bit compared to running raid-0. I'm sure you know raid-10 = 2xraid-0 and mirrors of those two stripes. If you aren't on a HW write cached controller.
Sadly you're on Z68 so you only have a few PCI-E lanes to play with, other wise you could just get yourself an LSI raid controller and get good speeds.
Those drives will net you around 300mb/s sustained. I was running 4xraid-10 1TB RE4 on a LSI 9260-8i and I was getting around 250MB/s write test under linux sequential 1.1GB tests. Currently with 6x15K SAS 3.0gbps 450GB HP drives on the same controller in raid-10 I do around 320-380MB/s. 2x Intel 320 120GB in raid-0 nets me around 300MB/s.
My recommendation, get yourself 2x256GB Corsair Performance pros, record to that, then copy the files over to raid-5 3TB array. Unless you record hour long videos at once?
I plan on keeping my current 64gb SSD for my OS, maybe get a 128gb SSD for my games and faster applications and my 6TB RAID10 will be my playground for most of my projects that require a bunch of sequential performance. And yes, sometimes I record hours at a time of 1080p video.
Smartphone cameras aren't really bad at all.
It's just most people cannot into good picture.
They're fairly decent if you don't have a real camera with you.
I don't take pictures or record video enough to justify dropping $50 or $100 on a dedicated camera.
it's also how few you have.
Give me a 5mp 5D Mark III and I'll be happy.
I technically have a D800.
It's my dad's
My dad used to be really big into cameras and photography when he was younger so I like to think I picked up a bit of that from him even if I don't actually take pictures.
Speaking of smartphones, my VPS host has the ugliest Android app that I've ever used:
Someone said to me today that I was stupid for saying if you cared that much about loading time's on an xbox 360 you could put in a ssd, would be a waste of an ssd though, because the connection's were diffrent.
What has the world came to....
And I am pretty sure that if they used a diffrent connector the manofacturing cost would be way higher?
iTunes then stated it wasn't available in the dutch store, and asked me to switch to the US store. I clicked ok, and then a second image popped up saying it wasn't available in the US market
