> For driving sims it absolutely does give you an "edge" and is certainly not a gimmick; speed sensation, immersion/sense of presence, depth perception and "feel" of what the car is doing under you are all greatly increased, allows you to more easily position the car exactly where you want (or be able to tell by just how much you missed that apex).
I tried out PSVR with DriveClubVR and while the freedom of vision was astounding (loved being able to know where the other cars were with a quick flick of my head), the lack of any G-forces really didn't agree with me. Mashing the brakes hard or turning corners didn't agree with what my brain knew I should be experiencing and after a few minutes I felt quite spewy.
Maybe it's something you could get used to. Unfortunately I haven't been able to spend enough time with a VR HMD to work that out.
Exactly. Silicon to provide digital watch functionality and powering an LCD don't take that much power. You're never(*) going to get a smartwatch that consumes comparable amounts of power. They do a lot more, and so require more juice: especially so if you have a nice AMOLED screen like my Gear S2 has.
* For appropriately small values of never.
So I registered on F1.com, but the app (a) forces the password characters to be entered in upper-case, and (b) shows the characters.
Also appears that the app won't let you enter numbers as part of the password either. Unless something is really odd with my Android keyboard (SlideIT)
I have a PS3, and even though it *can* play a ton of formats, the interface is awful and is very slow. I have a lot of music and a lot of photos, and the PS3 struggles to cope. And drilling down to a particular photo album is a right pain.
It also doesn't aggregate web video like Boxee does. It also consumes a LOT more power.
The only thing I don't like about the Boxee Box is its price. Once again the UK consumer gets hammered - in the US it's $200. Here, it costs the equivalent of 60% more.
My brother's just ordered one of these in the States. If it's good, I'm getting one.
There's nothing special about this drive at all. It's smaller than a lot of drives, but nowhere near as small as the smallest (I've had my Pico-USB drive for nearly 2 years now). And there's nothing ground breaking in terms of storage either.
The title of the article should be 'Sandisk launches totally uninteresting USB drive'. Slow news day?
