The very first game I remember was Alex Kidd on Master System II, my mother was always playing it!

The very first I played was probably NFS 3 on PC with my father. I remember playing it during the 1999 Athens earthquake aftershocks and getting scared

This is not something you can choose. It chooses the apps for you itself

This move makes me believe the rumors of them wanting out of the console buriness are true. May be bad for consumers initially, but at the end of the day, it's just a glorified PC at this point with better optimization from the developers. I'm not too worried for the future

Finally! Have been using Obtainium for a while and was wondering why F-droid didn't have auto update as well, to the point that I moved almost all apps to Obtainium...

I don't agree. While it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it is surely an improvement to the previous ones and plays very very nicely. Try the demo for yourself

Yacouba Sawadogo, African Farmer Who Held Back the Desert, Dies at 77 - The New York Times (www.nytimes.com)

He took barren and dry lands and turned them into incredible forests. People thought he was insane as they fled dying villiages. They burned his forests. He replanted his forests and tripled his crop yields, becoming a hero to farmers all over.

Thank you for posting this. This is such a great story!

Expected, since Hisislicon doesn't have access to advanced process nodes, like 5nm equivalent and 3nm equivalent. They are stuck at 7nm equivalent.

For me, it is impressive they are only 2-3 years behind at this moment.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE: Snapdragon vs. Exynos compared (www.gsmarena.com)

As expected the Snapdragon has better battery life. It lasts 13.2% longer than the Exynos in their battery test (9:45h vs 8:28h) with the biggest differences being in calls over an LTE network (34:15h vs 28:26h) and video playback scores (11:27h vs 9:16h). The Snapdragon version is superior in their web browsing and gaming...

I'm happy I bought S23 since it is the only one released with Snapdragon as it seems... Unfortunately Exynos just isn't there...

I don't see the point in reading this article instead of the GSMArena one tbh, it's just a summary of that

Excited to see these irl numbers, I hope we will see it in fhones available to Europe

I have almost never liked any PD phone to be honest

Nextcloud is literally "Jack of all trades, master of none". It tries to do EVERYTHING, and it fails to be even decent in most of these things...

It is surely less accurate than it was presented to be a decade ago. I have searched for info I knew it was online 10 years ago, and most of it is either lost entirely, or Google is useless nowadays and can't find it anymore

I know John from way before he started DSOGaming or english articles. I do not agree that he is particularly clickbaity, nor do I agree that he does 0 reasearch on his articles. I am not reading DSOG often, but I remember a lot of well written and researched articles from him

I really wanted YotaPhone to succeed. Both a normal screen and a very very battery friendly e-ink for reading etc for hours...

Good gaming experiences with no HUD?

I’m starting to find that HUDs in games clutter the screen and take away from being fully immersed in the game. I like games that force you to pay attention to what’s going on in the game and not numbers/markers on the edges of the display. What are some of your favorite games to play with no HUD? Here are a few of mine:...

VR is decent enough that you can get lost in the game as is. Even if momentarily, like trying to kick the ball while playing ping pong and it falls near you

I believe only the local Co-op was removed though? And the optimizations made for XSS were beneficial to all other platforms as well as they stated, and the game runs now much better on PC and PS5

pgetsos,
@pgetsos@kbin.social avatar

I doubt they would do the optimizations at the same degree, because they wouldn't need to. It was working fine on the PS5 already, it was already a success on PC. Why bother much?

My only issue with Spotify Wrapped is just how inaccurate it ALWAYS is, comparing it to my Last.fm account

Super interesting! Would love to check it out in person, and to see how the screen compares to a normal one

I had the S8+ and moved to an S23 Ultra, the difference is huge to be honest. The S9 surely is better in that regard thanks to the extra gb of RAM, but still you will see a big difference compared to an S24 Ultra (which doesn't mean that you phone isn't perfect for your needs as is)

Still great way to play it on Android through emulation though!
