A thing you need to understand before we go on: I like Ghostbusters to a troubling degree. I have ever since I first watched the original film when I was about 9. I didn’t get half the jokes at the time, mind. Heck, I’m not sure whether I was even entirely clear that it was a comedy. But that’s fine. Because it meant that, over the ensuing years, Ghostbusters grew up with me rather than being left behind like so many other childhood fandoms. I have been all-in on Ghostbusters for almost my entire life. I still instinctively remember the ambient, incidental music from the Real Ghostbusters cartoon like the resonant voice of a loved one. The unique, indignant whine of ECTO-1’s siren gives me a specific tingly feeling no other sound can muster, somehow cutting through to my very core and commanding my full attention in an instant, the way that I imagine a whistle does to a well-trained sheepdog. So keep that preface in mind when I say this, and understand that I … [Read more...] about Hear me out but… Ghostbusters 2 makes far more sense if everyone is dead
Breaking down language barriers: Travis the Translator If you’re a fan of Star Trek and it’s universal translator, or maybe you prefer Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’s babelfish, you’ll love Travis the Translator. It’s a palm-sized device that supports up to 80 languages (20 without an Internet connection), and it’s currently crowdfunded on indiegogo with a price of $199. I’ve used speech recognition in the past with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and more recently I’ve been doing increasing amounts of talking to my phone. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to support pseudo-real-time translation between languages is basically a done deal. Time to go on an exotic vacation to try it out. Gaming in the living room, done properly: Nvidia BFGD If there’s one drawback to using an HDTV as your gaming display, it’s the pitifully slow and archaic 60Hz refresh rate. Okay, so it’s not that bad, but … [Read more...] about The weirdest and craziest things we saw at this year’s CES
With Spectre and Meltdown security flaws coming to light one might consider that Intel’s sales would drop, however, that is not the case as company’s stock rose over 5.5% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and according to the company itself, 2017 was a record year for Intel. According to the earnings report, the revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $17.05 billion which is 4% up year over year. As for 2017, as a whole, the company saw a total revenue of $62.8 billion. According to the company’s CEO Brian Krzanich: “2017 was a record year for Intel with record fourth-quarter results driven by strong growth of our data-centric businesses. The strategic investments we’ve made in areas like memory, programmable solutions, communications and autonomous driving are starting to pay off and expand Intel’s growth opportunity. In 2018, our highest priorities will be executing to our data-centric strategy and meeting the commitments we make to our … [Read more...] about 2017 A Record Year For Intel, Spectre Security Flaw Had No Impact On Revenue?
The most important thing to remember about the loot box controversies of 2017 is that game publishers and developers are at a huge advantage when it comes to judging how much any of this noise actually matters. That’s because business is about what people do, not what they say. Player behavior is more important than player speech. An angry comment attached to an account that has spent $80 on loot boxes for a particular game says something, but the $80 speaks much louder than the comment itself. The industry knows much more about this issue than anyone else, because it has the data. We don’t know how many people are buying which games unless the publishers release that information, and conversion rates when it comes to microtransactions are almost never shared. Very few gaming companies cared if you complained publicly, as long as you kept buying or playing. That was the case, at least, before Star Wars Battlefront 2. Everything has changed Star Wars Battlefront 2 feels … [Read more...] about Loot boxes are the video game issue of the year
