Wow -- I guess the official release of Minecraft was this year. I would put it up to that or Skyrim. Portal 2 was pretty good, but it wasn't genre-defying or anything quite so intense.

Pick one: get a job/go to grad school (assuming I graduate this year -____-)
move to Boston
find a nice boy there

All pretty straightforward

Glad to see everyone doing well! I still lurk around on here, even if I don't post as much as I used to (who am I kidding, I never posted much). As crazy as it is, I'm finally finishing college this spring; the extra year for a math degree feels well worth it.

Missing you all! Hope your holidays are as enchanting as mine =)

I wonder if these crackdowns have anything to do with Monsanto. I guess they sue under patent infringement if you reuse their seeds.

It looks like Sim City for accountants =)

edit:

Also, note how it's for ages 3+? What kind of three year old would find this game appealing?

I hate to change the topic, Cooters, because I have a lot to say about this issue, but...I want to quickly ask—what's the appeal of foursquare? Why's it 'cool' and so widely used? I really don't get it.
*



I think the appeal of foursquare is a derivative of the need to stay connected -- intrinsic human curiosity and appeal for socialization? I couldn't tell you -- I think it's dangerous with regard to personal privacy.

QUOTE (Jinghao @ Jun 8 2011, 12:51 AM)
The question of whether there are better purchases out there is a restatement of whether one has high enough income (such that there are no better purchases).

So aside from special personal/business needs, it comes down to how much money you have.
*



My question remains as to why you would ever really want one. I will not rescind that they're convenient, but the amount you spend for marginal gains in convenience is astronomical. I do not understand why making more money justifies a purchase of an extraneous and technologically inferior piece of hardware, when for the same price I could buy a tablet PC and connect for free with the widely available collection of wi-fi hotspots. In the civilised world, wi-fi is about as available as cell phone service (if you're an AT&T subscriber, har har), so the monthly upkeep costs seem not pragmatic, regardless of your income.



Though, perhaps I could argue that these phones really aren't convenient or, in another sense, are counter-productive. You mentioned foursquare, right? On these phones, the widespread availability of location-based services, GPS tracking, intensive social networking has become more and more apparent. In a recent sampling of apps, popular ones that is, many of them unnecessarily collect and transmit private data. Most of the time, it's unbeknownst to the user. Yea, we can strengthen security and restrict app development.

Who knows, I'll post more later -- sorry I have to go

It really depends on how much income you have. If you are strapped for money, after skipping on cable and fancy accessories I would just have a cheap voice-only phone, and maybe have some Wifi device separately. It's fine if you're in school all the time, and that's exactly what I did when I made only 20k a year and had to pay for tuition and rent myself.


Definitely agreed.

QUOTE
But after you have at least 10k of money you don't need for rent/food/basic necessities I think it's extremely convenient to have a smartphone with data plan so you can check your email, look up stores, comparison shop in the store, and use cool things like Foursquare.

So it depends on what you're doing and how much money you have to spare.


I can't really deny the convenience of a smartphone -- but can't the money be better-spent? I guess the real root of it is wondering if there is something better one could buy with one's discretionary income?

QUOTE
Additionally it's kind of ridiculous how much data plans cost, considering how little maintenance costs the infrastructure companies have...
*



Doubly agreed, though I don't really understand the weight of any of their charges. I can't wrap my head around why a connection to the PSTN costs $35-$40/month, with another $15-$20/month for text messaging.

I can't justify it when I know, three years from now, prices will be cut in half in order to drag in the more resilient consumers.


Also -- with the relative ease of hacking and phishing on phones, even otherwise-keen net users are pretty prone to having their phones compromised. That's the scope of my research for the summer, actually -- whether or not smartphones are "safe", or rather, how to make them safer. A lot of it seems up to the user, similar to computers I suppose, but the software isn't exactly convenient.

It's like a bunch of non-techies were suddenly given some old Red Hat distro; they may be able to work on it, but it's still a pain in the ass.


edit: forgot a word up top -_-
