Ye, I’m a bit puzzled by this too, considering how the 3DS and especially the Vita are already struggling somewhat in this space. I don’t really think this streaming from PC feature will make a big splash, at least not big enough to pull casual gamers away from their phones and tablets, or hardcore gamers away from their portable consoles. I guess maybe they will make a few sales to enthusiasts, but I highly doubt they’ll even be able to take on the Vita in sales numbers.
The same could be said for ANYTHING. Phones, tablets, consoles, portable consoles, PC’s, Macs, whatever you can think of that contains a processor and some form of RAM. With that kind of thinking, you can never invest in anything, because it would be outdated at some point in the future…
Well, first let me say LOL – and now that that’s out of my system, I chose the word paranomasia (and it is in fact parA, not parO, I checked), because I’m not a native english speaker, and the word pun is kind of a slang word. Paranomasia is more fun, and it’s the word I learned in school. I also learned the word onomatopoietikon; it’s ridiculous, but I will use it in conversation anytime I can, not to try and impress people with my nerdpowers, but because it’s FUN TO SAY. Try it. Doesn’t make me “ostentacious”, that I simply use the first word to pop into my mind, and send a few people off to google to learn a new word. Oh yeah, and the added benefit of trolling people like you who feel the need to point such tiny issues out, is definitely a bonus, haha.
I think that switching the word “massage” out for the similarly sounding “message” was meant as a paranomasia, since the context here is an article recounting the story of the PSA’s and their creator – including what message he may, or may not, have been trying to send with them.
Or, you know, it’s a typo like you said. Whatever.
I don’t usually condone piracy, but I actually think that Adobe is better off just letting hobbyists and students use their products for free (or at least turning a blind eye to it) – those users will later help them maintain their near-monopoly status, when they graduate into the various creative industries, where the real profits are made. The notion that Adobe would make any kind of decent profit from selling pro-level software to hobbyists and casual users is ridiculous. Don’t feel too guilty, Intricacy, at least not if you are only using it for non-profit work.
