    [–] Who do you hate but also respect at the same time? LiquorNWeed 14 points ago in AskReddit

    But they make everyone follow them and then they kicked off the ultimate goal: notchless. Same for the jack. But yes they are retarded moves and true Apple things. Only they can pull it off

    [–] Who do you hate but also respect at the same time? LiquorNWeed 297 points ago in AskReddit

    I guess I've missed my window to drop a top level comment and have it catch up but anyway: Apple.

    They're THE trendsetters in the industry. Especially talking mobile phones. I live in India and currently India has been BOMBARDED left and right with Chinese brands like Oppo, Vivo (both from BBK, which also does OnePlus) and Xiaomi and they are poorly done 1-to-1 Apple imitations at worst (and awesome value phones at best (sent from my Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro)) so it's apparent how important it is for a feature to be implemented by Apple to make it mainstream (like dual cameras). Even the most apparent not-copying-Apple brand in the industry right now, Samsung, has been in hot water for doing the exact same thing they've now stopped doing just a few years ago.

    What I don't like about them is simply how closed their phones are for lots of things. I've got a Windows laptop and my friend has an Android phone. Well, there goes my connectivity with my own as well as someone else's phone if needed. Android is a lot more flexible here and that's what I like about it. Plus I've got less money to throw around.

    So yeah, I can hate apple all I want and be literally repulsed by all their devices and everything, but I can't deny their consistent impact on the industry and how it drives it forward

    [–] What company do you have a personal grudge against and why? LiquorNWeed 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Dell Vostros are pretty good alternatives for all (justifiably) salty Thinkpad users I hear. Oh and they also have the trackpoint!

    Well the CS6 versions of their stuff are almost always the most torrented apps on many sites. I'm no Adobe user but I use said sites so I find them there often. Shoot if you need to ask anything!

    Well turn it down a notch because all phones lately have been suuuper delicate compared to all older phones in the market, and then yes Nokia has a real upper hand in terms of durability.

    Where I live they're slightly overpriced so they get less sales from the very, very price-intensive market ours is

    [–] Can you help me cut down the number of cities in my trip? LiquorNWeed 6 points ago in india

    I don't think you should listen to me, but please cut Agra off the list too. Same reason as Varanasi. Jaipur, however better, is super hot

    What do you mean by "alternative name"?

    I don't know the exact way you'd call something with this, uh, "condition", but if you go through the install menus of the game, the default install directory is actually named "Need For Speed 7", so it was an official way to refer the game all the way to the release.

    Unless you mean a colloquial way in which a handful people referred to it, in which case it wouldn't really be applicable to your fun fact

    Its the exact opposite there. I've personally seen no one referring to it by any other name than Underground.

    Definitely though, the game was published as "Need For Speed: Underground" but it was internally referred to as Need For Speed 7 as well. That was my fun fact

    And while you're at it, the motivation behind the fun fact is that the executable file you'd use to run the game (and also some games after that as well) were named speed.exe. Speed 7 directly reminded me of NFS Underground.

    If only I had a capable machine, but I guess I'll get there too, someday. For now I'll play Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag in 15fps I guess.

    Also, thanks for the suggestion. I hope it's as good as the old NFS games

    I meant as an alternative name. NFS 7 was the last "alternative factname" for a NFS game that had this numbering. It was dropped entirely later, which isn't anything that matters tho. It's just a very specific detail lol. Same happened with Call of Duty with Modern Warfare/World at War. They were CoD 4/5 (not sure if MW was the last or WaW, I haven't played the latter) but Modern Warfare 2 wasn't CoD6 (it was, but only in development)

    /personal opinion

    Yep.

    Need For Speed is an underrated victim of EA's cashcow-ing game series and this is very evident in the latest installment, Payback which is just as predatory as Battlefront II but goes under the radar because of its poor sales and minimal marketing. RIP Need For Speed

    Fun fact! Need For Speed 7 was Need For Speed: Underground and the last NFS game to be given a number in order of its release. Coincidentally, it had no Lamborghinis in its entire lineup which was completely Japanese tuner-centric.

    Most people used to, and planning families is all very popular, but the damage has been done. India still is a youthful population, i.e. There are more younger people than any other demographic, so the population is only expected to rise if nothing particularly destructive happens.

    We'll get there, eventually, so dw
