tipoo - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - link"That's we we call 'Console Class Graphics.'" Nice Apple burn there, Myerson.
lilmoe - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkhaha, true that.
blackcrayon - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkGuess they needed something considering they're bothering to tell us how many "visits" to their app store.
Michael Bay - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkAs if Apple didn`t pester everyone with those bullshit numbers before.
edzieba - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkThe use of a false FoV for Hololens demonstrations still irritates me. It's difficult enough explaining the current state of VR and AR optics without outright false public demonstrations muddying the water.
nathanddrews - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkPersonally, I prefer it to the alternative, which would be to show it from the perspective of the wearer, which would fail to capture what Hololens is doing with the rest of the room, Pi robots, physical accessories, etc. while you're looking only at one particular AR target. The main takeaway is that the only way to really know what any AR/VR headset is like is to actually use it.
edzieba - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkCulling the external synthesised camera view to the view frustrum of the Hololens wearer would both show how the 'holograms' are embedded in the environment AND how much of them the wearer can actually see.
Wolfpup - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkWow, all 3 phones sound awesome. My primary issue is the same as always...will these start getting monthly security updates from *MICROSOFT*, not the phone company?
If so, I can tooooooooootally see replacing my mom's Surface 1 at some point with a Windows Phone...I mean she already uses a Windows Phone, but one of these you can plug in and actually use as a (presumably limited) PC! I wonder why they didn't upgrade the Surface 1 and 2 though to Windows 10 mobile or whatever...
nathanddrews - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkAs long as I don't have to dress up like that douchey-looking guy, I'll gladly buy a 950XL.
wperry - Tuesday, October 6, 2015 - linkIs their Insider program still going? If so, you can sign up, download the app and it side-steps the carriers as far as updates are concerned. That worked wonderfully to get my old 928 out from under the thumb of Verizon.
