With regards to todays attacks in Brussels, has this changed your perception of Islam? submitted by satnavtomington to religion

SCphotog 0 points 20 points (+20|-0) ago

Solidified, maybe reinforced. My perception of Islam is about the same as it was.

The religion in and of itself as the Quran/Koran... teaches appears to generate, venerate, engender and promote violence and hate towards anyone that is not also a Muslim, or even... a particular 'kind' of Muslim.

"Why does Google Search suck now?" submitted by nonservator to FuckGoogle

SCphotog 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

I use duckduckgo for 95% of my searches, but I watch a good bit of youtube videos... as I mentioned I keep it as much on the 'down low' as I can... but there's really no 'reasonable' way to remain completely hidden, and still use the internet.

You can't even get through Voat's registration without using Google's captcha integration... that simultaneously, helps Google's AI learn image recognition.

Epics Tim Sweeney Urges To Fight Microsoft & Locking Down The Consumer PC Ecosystem submitted by Troll to gaming

SCphotog 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

He says... in one of these articles... that they 'can' be sideloaded but the function of doing so is obtuse and obfuscated, to which I agree.

It's near to the same with the Google Play store... you CAN sideload applications, but if it were obvious and apparent and easy... we wouldn't call it "sideloading".

This is an obvious play by Microsoft to lock down the Windows store/UWP ecosystem, and while it might be able to be seen as "good business" it's not terribly good for the consumer, the gamer. The minutae of benefits this offers is far outweighed by the detriment.

We need more open environments not ANOTHER closed one. Right now we have multiple closed environments competing with each other... when it is totally unnecessary.

Remember when you could buy (license) a program and it would just work out of the box... no midddle-man needed ?

The 'store' is not needed... it's just a retail front between us and the content.

In the case of Valve/Steam... there are some benefits.... the social aspect being the most obvious, but even Steam with what we get out of it... is still monopolistic in effect.

I personally would prefer a simple server browser for my gaming, and the social aspect, can be left up to me and my friends... the options for communication are endless.

Launching my new boat submitted by chmod to gifs

How can they NOT compare the weight of the boat to the weight of the crane BEFOREHAND?

Why aren't we fighting to bring back game demos as a norm? submitted by Codewow to gaming

SCphotog 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Just like with a move trailer, they can include most of the content in a demo to get people interested, and then post purchase, let-down because they've seen it all already.

Not that demos are a bad thing really.

However, I think since there are so many video reviews these days, a little patience and vetting before a purchase can mostly ward off buyers remorse more so than ever, then.... combine that with a good solid return policy and game makers have a very strong impetus to make good or better games than we've seen thus far.

If you're really paying attention, it's pretty hard to get screwed these days.

If you impulse buy, you're likely to be let down/disappointed.

Microsoft's latest tactics show Gabe Newell of Valve was right to worry submitted by HoocOtt to gaming

Comments in the Windows sub and the Windows 10 sub on Reddit, show 'much' support for this move by Microsoft... disappointingly.

Trying to point out the negatives is met with downvotes galore, and the debate is buried. No surprise there I guess, but still frustrating.

I've tried to 'be nice' and I support my arguments with links and whatever other relevant hard facts and 'still'.... I'm told that what I've said or otherwise purported is outright false or will be soon... which is just bizarre... and again, downvoted into oblivion so that no one sees what I've posted.

I have no voice there, where it should otherwise count the most.

If you folks still have reddit accounts... take a look. It's depressing, but I suppose interesting to see this develop from the standpoint of the people that support it. It's all pie in the sky to them.
