#ti5   #dota2  this pre-game interview hurts my eyes and ears. So artificial, so rehearsed, so out-of-context, so non-gamer. They even put games' names in quotes in the subtitles. Like, «I have played "Counter Strike", "Star Craft", "War Craft"...». Does anyone really enjoy interviews like that...  -_-

Not to sound elitist (well, I know I do sound elitist :D), but to me these interviews were too professional for a young and chaotic gaming scene. :)

Apparently Facebook has invented a way to analyze code written in any language as long as it is for mobile. Next after the break: doctors invented a pill to cure third-world illnesses!

We have exhausted all options to negotiate any compromise or solution with FFG at this time.

+Fantasy Flight Games refuses to reserve one (1!) damn ticket for a fan group that voluntarily popularizes their games and sets up tournaments. /facepalm 

I really hope they go bankrupt one day and some nicer company gets their intellectual properties.

A developer evangelist noted that Windows 10 would be the “last version of Windows” ... indeed, updates to Windows after that release would follow an incremental path that would lead to ongoing improvements, instead of splashy, more occasional numbered launches.

Wow, are we really going to get the new, cooperative, non-evil Microsoft?

Seems like according to this article if you want a trustful phone company you should choose Apple. 
I always felt they after death of Jobs they are going down, because of lack of innovation and following market demands rather than convincing market what is good for it. 
Also as fan of WP platform I have some vague hope that maybe they could be successful because I like their phones, and rumors regarding future Lumias sounds very tempting. But what disappointing me is the lack of developers attention. As soon as you go beyond standard apps you feel like even though lots of thing get released, they are not supported properly. I see annoyings bugs and lack of support for Swarm, Duolingvo, Instagram, etc. I see lack of many other apps I could be potentially interested in like Heartstone. 

I do not like something about Apple, I cannot really describe, but seems like so many people put tons of time into it so that they continue make good quality software and if you want one, you have to switch into Apple :(

I keep getting surprised how seemingly simple mathematical constructs suddenly violate intuition in astonishing ways.

E.g. A real-number line can be thought of as consisting of a countable number of [0, 1) intervals laid end to end. A long line is like a real-number line, but "consists" of an UNcountable number of those intervals.

And then suddenly - every increasing sequence on a long line converges to a limit. Like, this long line is so long that you can pick any infinitely growing sequence on this line and then find a point where it ends.
