Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


We're Number One!

It was a few years back that the game industry started claiming "we're bigger than Hollywood". However, that was only if you didn't count DVD sales. Well in 2008 for the first time video games outsold DVD's and Blu-ray discs put together.

Now that's in terms of money, not units, more DVD's were sold, they're just cheaper than games. The numbers? Video games got bigger by an amazing 20% in 2008, apparently unaffected by the economy. DVD sales, on the other hand, fell by 6%. Final score: $32 billion to $29 billion.

This data comes from Media Control Gfk International. Their prediction for 2009? 12% growth for video games and 4% decline for DVD/Blu-ray.

That makes sense to me. Between Bittorrent, Netflix, the internet, big cheap hard drives, media servers, DVR's, and video on demand services, I think we're watching the beginning of the end of the physical distribution of movies and video.

And maybe games too. Did anyone actually buy Left 4 Dead (for PC) in a store rather than through Steam?
