Every Friday, Relearning the keyboard layout.

Print


They've changed the font in iOS Notepad, and now the a's look like o's..
How the hell do you make an a look that much like an o?
I don’t think I’ve ever found myself reading back my own text and thinking 'is that an a or an o?'
It must be the overly circular bottom of the a, or perhaps the minimal amount of visibility of the a's stick.
I’m really not sure, but it keeps making me wonder if my eyes might be going..

Maybe I’m getting too old for a's and o's?

Or maybe the a should be the same a that's on the keyboard, which is infinitely more readable.

SoRippingYouOff


What a week for AAA Gaming.

The internet is up in arms about NBA2k18.
First, it was revealed that the game needed such a huge Day One patch, that the game would REQUIRE at least a 16Gb microSD card on your Switch.

Then it was revealed that the save game (and remember that Save Games can only be stored on the Switch's internal memory, and there's only 32Gb of that, and the OS takes up about 6Gb) will require 5Gb..
Five fucking gigs for a Save game??!

The internet went fucking craze, and really, things couldn’t possibly get any worse.p for the shitty little BasketHoop game.
...Until the $99 InAppPurchases started to pop up..
