I'll be getting my Wii U very soon and am very much looking forward to seeing what Nintendo does with it. We've already got confirmation for a 3D Mario and Super Smash Bros (as if we needed confirmation, right?) but what else? Star Fox? Zelda? Metroid? What about new IPs and third party games? It should be fun to watch.
Speaking of video games, this is a new console with the specs of a smart phone that runs Android. Every news post or announcement regarding the system has baffled me. Frankly, I think it's a piece of shit. With those smart phone specs, it's incredibly underpowered, even by console standards. Even the Wii is more powerful.
I know power isn't everything, especially for consoles, but this might be an exception. It's a "console" designed to be cheap, and that's about it. Maybe it will be a success, but I don't think so.
You might be thinking "no way, it's got huge ratings, this is a crazy religious country and there are plenty of right-wing nutjobs that will continue to watch it" and I would agree, but that can only last so long. As the country slowly gets more liberal, Fox News will eventually suffer decline. If it's half as hilarious as I think it's going to be, buckle up.
Will they mellow out a bit as their ratings decline, or get more crazy? Either way, this is definitely something to look forward to.
I'm really interested in the NASA Mars missions. Whether they find life or not, I find it fascinating. Of course, if they DID find life, on Mars or anywhere else that isn't Earth, the reaction should be something to see. My guess is that half the religious population goes nuts while the other half attempts to explain it in the context of their religion. The mental gymnastics required to make that work should be something to see.
There's been a lot of progress lately on cars with systems built in that allow them to drive themselves, largely thanks to Google. I look forward to a society where actual people driving themselves around is rare. People are terrible drivers, accident after accident shows this. People drink and drive, text and drive, eat and drive and do pretty much whatever they can do impair their ability to drive properly. I'm also looking forward to the right-wing response. "OMG TEH GUVMENTS IS TAKIN AR DRIVINZ GRRRRR JESUS 9/11 9/11 JESUS." Fun times ahead.
That will definitely be fun to watch. As the years get warmer in the U.S. and in the rest of the world, sea levels slowly rise and arctic ice continues to get more and more scarce the global warming deniers club should get smaller and smaller. Likely with the remaining deniers getting crazier and crazier. Who will be the last one, and what kind of stuff will come out of that persons mouth? Aren't you curious? I sure am.
Yep, I'm a huge Internet/tech geek, but this is one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to. With Google rolling out their own fiber network slowly offering 1Gbps up and 1Gbps down at a reasonable price, it's only a matter of time before other ISPs are forced to compete. The U.S. has had pretty piss-poor Internet speeds for a long while and it's about damn time someone did something about it. Hats off to you, Google.
This is one turd that is in serious need of being flushed. I hope when he has a heart attack or whatever it is that kills him, they bury him in a giant toilet. The sooner this guy croaks the sooner we can start to have a more honest, reasonable discussion in this country about real issues, not some kind of "war on Christmas" bullshit.
The elimination of Religion is not likely to happen in our lifetimes, even in modern countries, but it should decline by a pretty good margin. It's my opinion that as we learn more and more about ourselves and the universe, the decline of religion will really take off. As people realize that there are far more amazing things out there than some silly stories about zombie carpenters and fake deities, people will turn to religion at an ever-decreasing rate. At least, that's my hope. Only time will tell.
It's got to happen eventually... right? They just can't keep running 500 of these a day forever, can they?
Seriously, holy shit guys, tone it down.
