161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I fixed my iPad on: August 14, 2014, 06:32:43 PM
My wife dropped my iPad a little while back and got a crack in it. It was still usable, but the other day I knocked it off a counter and the glass shattered pretty nicely.

I ordered an iFixit kit and now it's like brand new (except for all the dents I had already put in the case).

Now I know what it feels like to be an Apple Genius, or even in the Geek Squad. I am so awesome.

What makes this situation so much worse than all the timed exclusives we saw in the PS3/360 era?

I think that what has made this most offensive for people is

1. It was a game whose predecessor appeared on all consoles and was expected to be the same
2. The crappy doublespeak they used to announce it

It was really a problem of their own making.

Offhand I can't recall a sequel from last generation that was exclusive (timed or otherwise). Bayonetta 2 is the closest example and that's a very different story.

Side note, where do you live? I want those prices for those houses... damn... probably at least $600k+ in DC suburbs.

Yeah, I was going to say - that price/sqft makes me want to cry.

My experience during the 5pm event was that I was alone in the city and I couldn't get matched for the special pvp event. I actually couldn't get my friends list to come up so I wonder if it was having effects on live as a whole.

Just kidding. Being a homeowner does have it's challenges but overall it feels really good to have a place to call your own and to be putting equity away. Moving does suck, though. Throw away as much you can before you go.

7. At one point I entered a room on the first mission and there was a gaggle of '??' level monsters and they ripped me apart in about 2 seconds.  How did that happen? Did I do something wrong?


The ?? means they are way higher level than you.  Your ability to do damage is based on your level discrepancy as well as your weapon's Attack value.  I think they sort of botch the weapon stats page as from what I can tell by hovering over stuff, Impact is the damage per shot, but generally people instinctively are looking at that giant number which is the weapons ability to damage higher level enemies.  It's weird, and I don't understand all the interplay there yet.

Yeah, one of the odd things about the game is that you don't really want to explore. One of the first things I did one of the first missions was go downstairs and explore the bunker I was in and ran into some ?? monsters. If you stray off your path very often you will find enemies that are way over your level. Even just a tiny bit off the path too - I was doing the mission to scan some radar dishes or something which was level 4, and just around the base of the destroyed ship there were level 8 guys.

Well looks like I will be getting this on xbone, not so much for who will be playing it but I can't get used to the DS4 for shooters. Playing the beta tonight my hands were cramping and I kept rotating the controller towards the vertical position. I don't know what it is exactly but it just wasn't made for my hands. It's night and day compared to the xbone controller.

They said on the news that the Crimea area is absolutely a no fly zone but this area was not identified as dangerous yet. Plus the separatists weren't supposed to have rockets with that kind of range.

The "by Apple" is correct. The reason you have two different listings is that these are "fulfilled by Amazon" products sold by different retailers. They have to be listed separately because they have different sources and can have different prices.

This is not to say that someone can't pull a fast one on you, but the intention is the "by" shows the manufacturer and the "sold by" shows the retailer providing the goods to Amazon's warehouse.

I seem to be misunderstanding something. The game says to use defend to prevent being interrupted. So on turn 1 I defend and get the bubble around me. On turn 2 I choose to attack. I still have the bubble around me and an enemy hits me but I'm still interrupted. What am I doing wrong?

You must not be a fan of Tandori chicken then. 

The problem I've encountered at two different Pakistani places is the amount of spices they use.  It's about two to three times more than I've ever had at an Indian restaurant. 

Have you ever had southern Indian vegetarian food?  Especially a crepe like dish called a Dosa?  Good lord, you'll think you died and went to heaven.

It's not that no one uses it in a derogatory manner anymore. It's that no one uses it any more, period, unless they are referring to the football team. Because if they used it in reference to Native Americans it would be extremely offensive.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.

But why should larger groups get the protection of the crowd while smaller groups get left behind? You know if the name poked fun of Christians then this wouldn't stand because of the backlash. But Native Americans don't have the power to create a backlash like that. In those cases, there needs to be someone or some thing to act in their place.

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with? As it stands the people and our free market justify its existence. Sad but true.

Is the name offensive? Sure it is. But why should the government tell us what is and what isn't offensive when it comes to trademarks attached to a product?

The government didn't just decide this on their own, a group of Native Americans brought suit against the trademark, and while our government is a majority rule, it is also tasked with the protection of the minority.   Here's Thomas Jefferson on it

Quote
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate which would be oppression.

Exactly. Thankfully sometimes in this country we do things because it is the right thing to do instead of waiting for everyone to realize it. If not, women might still not have the right to vote, people would only be able to marry their own race, etc.
