    Taja reacted to dalekphalm in Spotify fails to properly licence Eminem.   
    ? I must admit, the whole "today's music sucks!" argument to be... well... illogical at best.
     
    Every generation, in basically all of human history, has said the same thing as you. People complain that "*insert current era's music* sucks!" every decade.
     
    But the truth is that there's more music now then there ever was - and there's also just as much (if not more) good music as there ever was. Places like SoundCloud and YouTube have allowed niches to grow that would have not been commercially viable in the past.
     
    The music from the last decade doesn't suck. No more than the decade before that, or the one before that, or the one before that, etc.
     
    Enjoy and listen to what you like. But don't shit on things other people love just for the sake of it.

    Taja reacted to Commodus in Employee leaks hundreds of Google documents revealing its search-results manipulation and biases   
    Friendly reminder that Project Veritas has been caught lying and distorting claims on multiple occasions (ACORN, the Washington Post and the like) and shouldn't be trusted.
     
    Also, keep in mind that Google as a business is geared toward giving its customers useful information.  If you're looking for details on Islam, for example, Watson should be the last person anyone considers; he's a bigot and lies constantly.  While I do think his channel should rank higher if you're looking for it specifically, I'm not going to gripe much about it being downplayed.
     
    And keep in mind that the Google Now cards "blacklist" is about ensuring that the brief news snippets that surface in your feed are reasonably accurate and come from trustworthy sources.  I don't know about you, but I don't want propaganda from Daily Caller or racist screeds from Daily Stormer floating alongside my sports scores and weather.
     
    What I think Vorhies, Project Veritas and many others don't want to accept is that the truth isn't fair, and that some outlets are far more likely to spin lies than others.  If Google is interested in presenting facts in its knowledge cards, it has to rule out some sites.

    I loved The Perfection on Netflix. Also I liked Apostle, but it can be too slow for some people.
     
    El Cuerpo and The Orphanage are very good.

    Taja got a reaction from XR6 in Tech myth debunk thread   
    Its not a myth, but also not entirely true.
     
    Every person has different needs and tastes, so it is 100% subjective.
    I would say that for A LOT of mac buyers, the mac is not worth it - because of marketing and other stupid reasons, ppl just think its better or are just used to it.
     
    some people would say "paying $100 for a book is stupid" and then they go and buy a $300 painting. If you have the money and you spend it wisely, you can get a ton of value from something that others would never understand.

    Taja reacted to TheRevTastic in Streaming: Do you do it? Do you watch it? Why?   
    I both watch streams and stream occasionally.
     
    For watching, I go to watch a game I myself usually play and the person playing the game as they can be entertaining. It's also nice to be able to chat with the other viewers (from a couple dozen to thousands). I usually also tend to watch the people that are very good at the said game like pro's. There's really only a handful I watch that aren't pros (Lirik, disguisedtoast [when he's not playing hearthstone], pokimane, and a couple of others). I like them because they're funny and sometimes make hilarious fails at the games they are playing.
     
    Also when someone says get big they mean become the most viewed streamer. Most big streamers make up to if not more than 6 figures a year.

    Taja got a reaction from SpookyCitrus in Witcher 3 100fps?   
    1080p FOR SURE. 1440p I would guess yes too, but maybe you have to tweak a few settings.
    Also im considering hairworks to be off or at least not maxed, because it just cuts so many fps that its never worth it.

    I will get it on GOG, more money for CDPR and you get the non drm version.
     
    Also good to see regional pricing, that means a lot to me. I dont mind preordering this game, because I will play it no matter what. But I will wait when its near launch to pre-order.

    Taja got a reaction from dgsddfgdfhgs in How do you pronounce "M.2" ?   
    I say m dot two and I HATE IT.
    There is no reason to say it that way (well, there is the dot but also you really dont have to say it), but every techtuber says it like that so it just became burned into my brain.
     
    But nothing bothers me more than the way Riley says OLED.
    Also, why people say LED as "el ay dee" and not just led? But when saying OLED they do say oled instead of "o el ay dee"? Mysteries of humanity.

    Taja got a reaction from Sauron in Single, Unemployed Better "Gamers”   
    In e-sports, women and men can compete in the same teams (because its not a physical sport) and in dota there are ZERO women that play in a real pro level.
    I think that will change, and thats good, just like the South American scene is growing internationally (Im brazilian and very happy to see a brazilian team going to most majors, and even if they lose most of the times, its still an evolution).
     
    The main problem IMO is that the new generation of "gamer girls" is not ready yet. Im 23 and most of the women I grew up with didnt play (or dont until today) - gaming was a male activity, so most women didnt grew up gaming (like most males), but nowadays this is changing rapidly.
     
    In the end, its all math: some research shows that 50% of gamers are female, but they dont take into account the AMOUNT of time they play (daily/weekly or whatever), the amount of time they have been playing (since 6yo? since 20yo?) and if they are playing competitive games. I would guess that in competitive games, balancing by gameplay TIME, it would still be 98%+ men.

    Taja reacted to yian88 in Single, Unemployed Better "Gamers”   
    Please i see this everywhere, pointless comparison between women and men when they are slightly better at something.
    You could find 10000 things men are better at than women but i wont and we shouldnt care.
    Both men and women can do the same things just as good if they dedicate themselves to it, except physical activities and sports.
    Men and women do think differently due to biology yes, which makes us have very different personalities and interests but as i said if both men and women tried hard enough they would be almost equal at any task.
     
    Would you enjoy to see tons of threads starting with "men are way better than women at...", i dont want to see that because its pointless and generates conflict between men and women like feminists like to do.

    Taja got a reaction from Origami Cactus in Have you ever bought merch?   
    I agree that merch can be a "ez money" strat from popular ppl, but it can also be VERY good.
    I never bought merch, but I would buy merch that is neutral and has good quality, to help some creator and at the same time get something nice for myself.
