    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    What difficulty do they raid? You said you joined them "to start doing that stuff with mythics", if they're raiding mythics then you're not really stepping into a "show up and have a good time, paying attention is optional" type situation. Requiring logs etc for heroic or normals is...

    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    IMO easily the best WoW has been in a very long time, *for now*. It's hard to say what anyone will think of all this in six months.

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    I mean, if you're going to nit-pick the point I'm making by saying you wouldn't look up a recipe when obviously I'm referring to ALL web use, that's your business. My main argument is that Android is at its best "as good as" Windows in some scenarios and at worst far worse than Windows in many...

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    So then you're using a keyboard and mouse. Thanks for clarifying. How would I use touch in my livingroom? The fact is that Android and its apps are designed around touch, so if you try to use them with a keyboard and mouse they don't work as well as you'd expect. I'm not talking about...

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    Agreed on the first part. As for the second part, you don't need a glass to drink orange juice either but it beats tilting the carton directly into your mouth.

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    And it's not just the OS, something that could be updated to include better compatibility with keyboard/mouse input, it's the apps. Everything built for Android is built for touch, and that becomes very apparent if you try to use a keyboard/mouse-style input with an Android device. It's not a...

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    Sure but...that's a "keyboard and mouse", not a remote, in terms of functionality, and it will work MUCH better with a Windows machine than an Android one just due to the way each OS interprets that sort of input.

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    How the hell do you use a browser with a remote? That doesn't even make sense. Touch has a LOT to do with livingroom use if you stop thinking of the box as a set-top box(which it's not) and start thinking of it as a livingroom PC(which it is). Maybe I do more with my device than you do, and...

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    It's fundamental to the fact that Android is a touch operating system. It can "emulate" a mouse and keyboard input but it's not very good at it, and if you spend any real time using it compared to a Windows machine it's a chore. The way you interact with webpages and programs in general is...

    Windows Phone And Blackberry Head For Extinction

    Honestly, even for basic tasks Android sucks in a desktop environment. The OS doesn't really support a keyboard/mouse all that well, so even just normal browsing doesn't work as well as it does on a Windows machine. I say this as someone who used an Android TV box for about a year before...

    Corning Responds To Worrying Galaxy Note 7 Scratch Test Video

    And yet you reference other tests he's performed while admitting he *can't reproduce the test conditions*. So again, how is that useful? If you can't reproduce the conditions then you can't directly compare the results of the tests. I'm not saying he's out to get anyone, that's not the point...

    Corning Responds To Worrying Galaxy Note 7 Scratch Test Video

    Right, and the problem with the test having been done in a completely uncontrolled manner is - how much pressure did it take to make that happen? You don't know, I don't know, the guy who performed the test doesn't know. Is that useful? How do you compare that to anything else?

    Is that how material transfer works too?

    Corning Responds To Worrying Galaxy Note 7 Scratch Test Video

    The point is that *testing* needs to be done in a controlled manner or it doesn't tell you anything useful.

    Official Overwatch Discussion Thread

    Everyone has a limit where they're not reasonably going to get better. A lot of people feel like if they practiced as much as the pros they'd be just as good - those people are almost universally mistaken. I know PLENTY of people from playing BF4 who had over 2000 hours in the game who were...
