Do you know many people that have an offline PC? Why was there all that fuss about SimCity? Doesn’t everyone already have an internet connection?
The PS4 and XBOne are very similar consoles internally, they’re both AMD APUs using derived Jaguar cores and both AMD’s GCN based GPUs.
The PS3 and 360, whilst both PowerPC, were quite different and not as easily comparable. The PS4 and XBOne are very easily comparable and the PS4 has the significantly faster GPU and better memory, we’ll have to see if Microsoft’s decision to go with ESRAM pays off and mitigates some of the advantages that Sony’s 8GB GDDR5 will have, but now?
It is a much easier job to compare the two and suggest the PS4 is the more powerful system and we should see those results.
Also, how do you know that? And that is something really of personal preference.
Political briefings are so boring, if I was a politician, I’d try my best to avoid them.
IT’S THEIR JOB
The Verge gets accused of being both paid by Apple and “biased against Apple”.
I think it’s safe to say they’re neither because of it.
The point here is that games require an online activation, and a continued daily check in. Your windows phone didn’t.
If they decide to outright block activation requests originating from countries not supported (which their wording seems to allow for), then your system would me pretty much useless, as a games machine at least.
Near console quality? Lol.

It doesn’t have a HDD and the memory is replaceable:
Also, it looks like those CPU brackets are removable so like the current Mac Pro, you may be able to upgrade the CPU.
or ECC memory.
Microsoft has offered to reimburse him for the cost of the device and also ship him a replacement phone. “I was incredibly surprised at the lack of intimidation and even more surprised at their accommodation,” says Wong.
That’s nice. Glad they handled it the way they did.

Lol. I’d love for you to source this one outside of the “hurr, all those CCTV cameras!” and like the rest of people fail to realise that most of them are private CCTV cameras not owned or operated by the government.
How will it post to the service legitimately though? They don’t have an open API do they?

I should say for that example, as iOS as gotten better and better at detecting when the user wants to interact.
As the page is loading, put your finger on some whitespace and scroll down without letting your finger off the screen to find an unloaded image and just keep your finger down and just sightly moving.
That image won’t load until you lift your finger.
Apple keep stuff smooth by doing stuff like pausing some other processing when the user interacts with the screen.
You can try it yourself, as an example load up TheVerge on your iOS device in the web browser, but as it is loading put your finger on the page and just hold it there.
You’ll notice that the page has stopped loading, and will resume so immediately after you take your finger off the page.
Apple prioritise the process responsible for a ScrollView. Where on Android, it doesn’t do that. It’ll keep on loading and as you’re interacting with the device, so you get multiple things fighting for resources at once, creating a less smooth experience.
iOS is an incredibly well thought out system in many ways, from the start.
You can go offline for quite a long time on Steam, certainly longer than 24 hours.
Yes.. fight stupid with more stupid. Great idea.
Yeah. I imagine they pressed publish on the blog post as soon as they pressed publish on the Google Play store. Pressing publish on the Google Play store can still take a while for it to show up.

Yearly is fine to keep up with new GPU and CPU releases.
No, no they don’t. If any of those people you described are using a 30" 1080p monitor, they’re silly. It is far more likely those people you describe would be using a 30" 2560×1600p monitor.
Having a larger monitor isn’t going to be of much benefit if you’re still on 1080p resolution in regards to giving you more usable screen space.
“Serious gamers” don’t use 30 inch 1080p monitors. If they’re using a 30" monitor, it is likely they’re on 2560×1600.
Why is that relevant? There is hardware that supports it fine, just because it isn’t available on most PCs doesn’t mean it isn’t a worthwhile product.
Besides.. Intel’s integrated GPUs on the Ivy Bridge chips support 4k resolution these days. Obviously you wouldn’t be gaming on that, but it is still usable as a regular monitor.
Physically, they will be four times smaller which will make stuff hard to see so that won’t help much.

Lots of people. Sony have usually left Europe last as launching in various European countries is a bit more involving than US or Japan.
