Some one said to me in another post: "the ps4 is in no way more powerful, check the specs out"

Based on all the info we have, the PS4  is in fact way more powerful than the Xbox One.  Even Microsoft stated "We purposefully did not target the highest-end graphics. We targeted more as a broad entertainment play and did it in an intelligent way.”

here are the specs (comparison):

-PS4 has 7GB of high speed RAM for gaming, the XB1 has 5GB of slower RAM for games (XB1 has 3GB of RAM reserved for the OS)

-PS4's GPU has 18 compute units, while the Xbox One’s GPU has 12 compute units. That would give the PS4 a huge advantage over the XB1 in graphics

-PS4 is capable of 1.8 Tflops vs XB1's 1.2 (PS4 being 50% more powerful)

Here is what the experts and developers who work in the industry are saying:

-The FXAA creator said this: “I’d bet most titles (on XB1) attempting deferred shading will be stuck at 720p with only poor post process AA”

-Jonathon Blow, creator of Next-gen game The Witnes, said this: “I think the RAM helps a lot but there are other important hardware+system things happening. But you might also get a scenario where games run at 60 fps on one machine, 30 on the other”

-Avalanche Studios said:  ”The PlayStation 4 environment is definitely more mature currently, so Microsoft has some catching up to do”

-Digital Foundry makes it sound like the XBONE is much more inferior to the PS4 >> http://goo.gl/pQCdo


Xbox One might have more issues and could be even less powerfull based on the followings statements:

-MS having eSRAM yield problems on Xbox One, RUMOR: downclocking GPU >> http://goo.gl/rjTPN

-Microsoft canceling the round table with media to avoid facing question about PS4 vs XB1 >> http://goo.gl/Ys9FJ

-An indie game could maxed out the XB1 in terms of RAM >> http://goo.gl/FnxTM

-XB1 Reveal: The cheering in the audience is not coming from the press >> http://goo.gl/YRfFk

-XB1 reveal was staged >> http://goo.gl/aMVst

-Xbox One UI runs real slow in real time >> http://youtu.be/ifa9Q7ATfVA

Elizabeth Warren and Claire McCaskill are two of my favorite senators.

Warren, a first term senator, has been aggressively going after the banks that destroyed our economy and laundered money for drug cartels.


McCaskill has introduced two long overdue (and obvious) bills:

Cut all Congressional pay until the sequester ends:

Allow electronics usage during takeoff (really, its 2013 guys, we know it doesn't interfere with the plane):

Women are better at mediation and compromise. This deep Congressional divide and dick waving wouldn't be such a problem, if there were literally less dicks in Congress.

The European Space Agency has released blueprints for the first habitable lunar base for mankind. Using robotic builders, the entire base would be built with lunar soil. Using high-tech 3D printing, livable dome-shaped buildings would be built. Some experts are claiming that within the next 40 years, the establishment could be ready for humans to occupy.

With 90% of needed materials for buildings already present on the moon, the ESA’s human spaceflight team’s Scott Hovland said: ”3D printing offers a potential means of facilitating lunar settlement with reduced logistics from Earth.”

The lunar soil would get turned into a cream-like substance, which then gets sprayed to form solid block material used for wall-building at the speed of ~2 meters per hour.

Make your voice heard, and urge your representatives to support NASA funding, and that you want NASA to be a part of this could-be collaborative mission:

A clever animated video to go with what possibly has been Richard Dawkins most iconic moment this year, so far. :)
