  • HKZ mentioned you in Android 4.4 Will Be Called KitKat

    @Dracono: Kinda makes sense because there are so many Android phones and almost all of them are crappy.

  • neo1piv014 mentioned you in Google Play App Roundup: Digg, Siegecraft Defender, and Jack Lumber

    You had me sold at "there are no in-app purchases. You buy this game, and all the content is yours.".

    It's a sad day when that's a major selling point. For a tower defense game, Siegecraft looks pretty good. I hate the ones with fixed paths, but the ones that let you create your own mazes can be interesting.

  • Rallier mentioned you in How does youtube "geekweek" works?

    @Dracono: Hope they do more with it than just that. The tested video was not even mentioned in that "trailer".

  • gpbmike mentioned you in DRM-Free, selling point or piracy temptation?

    @Dracono: That group last posted an announcement in Dec 2011.

  • will mentioned you in Windows 8 Hits 60 Million Licenses Sold

    @Dracono: FWIW, if you're thinking of the same story I am, it measured usage based on browser statistics/reporting. From everything I can tell, this release reports units sold the same way Microsoft has in recent memory.

    @Dracono: To be fair... the time between XP and Vista was massive, therefore a lot of unknowing people were willing to jump in, and the time between 7 and 8 is pretty short for normal people.

    And there have been a lot of dumb asses on the internet professing the evils of what is just a snappier Windows 7 with a feature you don't need replaced by another one you don't need. If you look at how much has changed between 7 and 8, I don't think MS is trying to make big bucks on this upgrade. They can't have put very much into it, because honestly very little has changed. It's an upgrade, not a new OS. And as a result, expecting it to do the same thing W7 did when it launched is a bit silly. People just want to shit all over Windows 8, and most of them are eager for any chance to do so. Even stuff like this.

    Windows 8 is fine, it's a new OS and it has those new OS issues, but so did Windows 7. There is nothing I could miss less than the start menu, I never used the damn thing. And all of it's functions remain in the metro start menu, but now you can do a lot more with it. If you want that, spend a few bucks. If you don't, stay with Windows 7. You'll be happy with whatever you pick unless you're some internet conformist looking to hate on the latest cool thing to hate.

    @Dracono: The enterprise market could care less, they have Windows 7, why would they make the small upgrade to Windows 8. You could upgrade to Windows 8 for what, $15? Even if it was loved by everyone, there's no way that enterprise would really need to upgrade. They wouldn't be upgrading ANYWAY. How many enterprise types honestly want to upgrade to a brand new, potentially fucked up OS? They wait for the security to be clamped down, for compatibility to be a no brainer, and they won't buy something that only really makes significant changes to the START MENU. The thing that is usually locked up tight and useless enterprise situations anyway? The enterprise market is pretty happy with what they have. Hell, half of em aren't even running an OS from this decade. Why would an incremental upgrade that's biggest change was a feature that was never particularly crucial to them anyway? They don't need a giantbomb app that pops up notifications when a new video is posted, they don't give a damn about metro, and they'll keep buying Windows 7 for more money than they'd spend on Windows 8. Win win. (dows)

  • PillClinton mentioned you in S Filter - A Reusable Coffee Filter for AeroPress (Kickstarter)

    @Dracono: That link appears to be broken. Also, how is this any different, or better, than the Able Disk?

  • Conmused mentioned you in Tested TF2: Return of the server.

    @Dracono: whatever takes the least amount from transactions. Never heard of dwolla, and my work blocks them for being.. a chat client? How do they fare?

  • CROM mentioned you in How close is the closest Apple Store to you?

    @Dracono: I don't mind retail shopping, although I have to say that I don't like shopping malls. Having to walk past 50 rows of cars on a hot day and navigating through crowds of people to get to that single store that I was interested in visiting? Not worth the hassle.

  • Rallier mentioned you in Checking In On The Design + What Would You LIke to See?

    @Dracono: we used to have that yeah. it was a > after the thread title I believe. It's return would do much good.

  • episcopo mentioned you in The true reasons why Valve is moving towards Ubuntu Linux? Future concerns.

    @Dracono: I wanna like Metro on a desktop, but what I've seen and what I had to use in Windows 8 RC was kinda underwhelming and it seemed like an unnecessary roadblock I had to navigate every so often. Metro seriously needs a major revamp, in my opinion, regarding looks and user interaction on a desktop. Metro for desktop and laptops could be a Waterloo event for Microsoft come this autumn unless they alter some things.

  • Toxeia mentioned you in Check Your Nexus 7 Tablet for This Touchscreen Issue

    @Dracono: Well if you're looking at it from the point of view that everything drops in price eventually, I can understand that. I thought that you meant a capable tablet for $249 was too expensive or that Google was reaming people on the price some how. That's my bad on misunderstanding.

  • Toxeia mentioned you in Check Your Nexus 7 Tablet for This Touchscreen Issue

    @Dracono: Premium pricing at $199 or $249?

    @ryanw: I wasn't aware digitizers even needed to be calibrated. I guess the increases in resistance along circuits in the way capaitive screens calculate your position on the screen could be making it all funky. If it's an issue with calibrating after it's heated up enough that it causes issues, what about when it cools down? I'd like to see what happens if you let it happen, reset the screen so it calibrates, and then kept it on doing less intensive tasks while it cooled off if it happened again.

    First day was OK with only Trine2, but I pulled my wallet out today as I debated and think my wallet started to shed a few tears...

    And this till the 22nd!
