Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

Looks like the old Apple thread went poof in Kal's mad plan to make things work, so here's a new one.

So, my iPad (1) and my iPod Touch 4th Gen are not updated to iOS5.

My main computer is a G5 running Leopard. (I have a Mac book pro @ snow leopard and a dodgy Dell Hackentosh also at Snow Leopard).

I'm considering upgrading my iDevices to iOS 5. What, if anything, will I gain from this, given the limitations of my main computer?

Yeah, I was going to post that myself.

This thread should be about the Beatles.

I would hold off till they bring out iOS 5.1 which is said to introduce multi touch gestures to the iPad 1 and that way you will avoid some of the bugs in 5

huh..had you asked me, I'd have sworn the first update had already happened (or was that 5.0.1)?
Any rumored time of release on that?

On another topic, man I let updates get away from my...on my iPad, I have 135 updates waiting....and for so many apps I don't use.

Beta 2 of 5.0.1 was just seeded to developers recently, so it shouldn't be long now. I'd go ahead and upgrade. There's a ton of new features in iOS 5 that may make your life easier depending on what you do. And once you get this update out of the way, all the future updates will be over the air. You won't be dependent on plugging it into a computer just to upgrade.

Oh you and me both. They need to make them like "Windows Updates". Automatic, invisible, in the background etc.

It's the same on the desktop. I rarely reboot the laptop, so that's also got a load of updates waiting to be installed

It still baffles me that Apple doesn't use their own push notification framework to show a badge or an alert whenever you have apps to update.

^ it does (unless I'm mis understanding what you're saying).

I used to just hit update all each day..but then a comic app went evil with an update, and I wanted to keep the version I had, so I had to do updates 1 by 1...and then it all went downhill from there.

And here I am wishing Windows Update were more like the one iOS has ? one centralized system that handles all my app updates instead of having to rely on a dozen different self-updaters and even more programs that don't bother with one at all.

There's just no reason for it. It's a technology that served its purpose, and still has a purpose, but that purpose isn't the web anymore.

Cool iOS 5 feature I just discovered: hold down the back arrow in Safari rather than clicking it and you'll pull up a desktop style option of going back to a specific page (rather than having to click each page back one at a time). Appears to be iPad only right now (5.0.1)


"Someone once told me that Time is a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I'd rather believe that Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment -- because they'll never come again."
