    Verizon doesn't have that kind of infrastructure to work off of, though. So these claims are either baseless or they are expecting a large sum of money (upwards of a few billion) in the near future.

    This is why I'm calling BS, AT&T's coverage may suck (or rather their coverage doesn't suck at all, but the network is so clogged everywhere that not as wide of a signal is sent out) but they DO own majority of the cell towers in the US (around 60% last I checked) and for Verizon to do this they would need to upgrade the towers, which they cannot do.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love for it to happen but it just sounds like hype.



    Well I can't find any information about AT&t owning Verizons cell sites. Plus Verizon and AT&T both said there LTE networks would be ready by 2013. At&T coverage does suck at least in the Midwest no one who likes to use a cellphone ever gets anything but Verizon around here.

    They might share some with Sprint but AT&T uses GSM and Verizon cdma. Verizon has never had issues when they role out upgrades to the evdo that they have done in the past few years.

    Verizon has been working on the move to LTE sense 07.



    Around here a company layed fiber optics to everyone's homes but ignored my city because the local company here did something to get the city to not let them put in fiber.

    Now people just half a hour from me can get 100MBps in 2012 and already get 30MBps. We got a 50MBps line running into the public library I set up the network at.

    I am going to have to call BS on that claim, majority of the 3G area is owned by AT&T, and AT&T has no plans on upgrading anything on their infrastructure (as we can plainly see in cities like NY and LA where they need to deploy those mobile cell tower trucks).

    It's an extremely hefty claim to make, to the point almost where it's laughable. ESPECIALLY by 2013, are you kidding me?



    at&t service is laughable at best.

    They don't even cover voice or texting in kansas period when family comes out here they are lucky if they get 1 bar.

    Direct quote from Verizon

    Plans are underway to cover 200 million people by the end of 2011 and the entire nation with more 4G coverage than 3G coverage by the end of 2013. That will mean coverage for 98% of the country.

    Verizon already has pretty good 4g service they are rolling out a lot faster than any other carrier in the USA.

    If it is over the next summer Ivybridge will be realsed then.
    Going to be more energy efficeny and faster and better overlockers.

    Samething with the graphics card AMD and Nvidia will have new archs out by then AMD for sure Nvidia probbly.

    AMD new arch plans to have massive improvements over the old. no more ddr ram replacing it with xdr ram and not using VLIW any more and will move over to GCN. It will be more similar to Nvidia arch and be better for gpgpu computing.

    This won't happen even the slightest if the telecom companies have anything to say about lobby against it.



    Verizon is doing a good pretty good they plan to cover all 3g areas by late 2013.

    I'm not sure what carriers Canada got but Verizon 4G gets low enough pings and speeds to play battlefield 3 online.
    4G will replace landlines in most of the USA and canada and any large country. I expect im paying 60$ a month just to get .





    Comapred to the 20$ a month I get unlimited 4G with verizon. Tho there is no 4G in my area yet.

    3G speeds indoors droidx with cyanogen. 4-5 bars.




    Speeds you can expect at least what Ive seen in most areas is 22mbits down and 10 up.
    LTE right now can get up to down-link peak rates of 300 Mbit/s, uplink peak rates of 75 Mbit/s.
    When Verizon rolls out LTE advance it can do 1gigbit/s.

    But it all depends on the carrier your on tho.

    posted a message on I've got my whole rig set up.... Except the cords..
    Most cards are keyed so they wont plug into any other spot and others like sata cords don't care about ends. The only ones that can be hard to get into the right spot on the case power on button on some motherboard what pins it is are not clearly marked but if you get it wrong nothing happens.

    That and 8 pin pcie power cord can be put into a 4 pin motherboard connect but 4 pins will be hanging off so you will know.

    Look. You.....you "non-mean truth-telling" person. Your over your head. I tell you. I tell you this is going to be great. I don't care if its a small team or not! Notch created this game, this wonderful game called Minecraft. Because of a small team. I don't want to be big like Microsoft. Now. Stop being a person stopping games from happening. All you know this could be the next big game like Minecraft.

    PS: Since you think this isn't going to work out, why are you keep doing this? Is it your job to run up behind people and say something like "You can't make a new game because you don't know what your doing". I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING! I've been working this since last week. Know stop being a "truth-telling person" and put a cat on your head.


    We get thousnads of people posting stuff like this. Notch had experince working in games and made many prior to minecraft and even minecraft he got help from other experinced programmers like Jens. You are also compared minecraft a fairly simple creativ game to a mmorpg you want to make. Blizzard one of the best devleopment teams around started on world of warcraft in 1996 and allready had the engine they based it on done before that. Wow took 9+ years of development to produce.

    Knowing c++ syntax is a start but you also gotta learn to program shadders and working with Opengl or dirctx both can be very hard to learn to make a 3d game engine.

    You should start with a simple singleplyer game not jump into a massive mmorpg.

    He is not trying to stifle your creativity he is just giving your fair warning maybe a little bluntly but the truth.
    You should not assume that it will become popular. Just because one indie game minecraft is huge not all indie games will. Minecraft becoming this insanely was by random chance.

    I love that you guys are hating on the macbook pro. The exact computer notch uses for minecraft...

    Windows is great because you can totally change the specs on it, but I suppose I care about organization a little bit too much and like my computer compact and wireless; so I end up getting a mac. Smething about having a computer tower and everything...i dont know.

    Dont mean to start anything! Just wanted to put that out!


    Notches macbook died and he only ever used that for mobile stuff. Everyone at mojang that programs has highend pc with triple monitors.

    They make all in one pcs if you hate towers but I prefer having performance not a small computer.

    I'm guessing you have a much older processor then or something because if you have a newer processor with a 6950, there's no reason you should only be getting 60 fps. I also don't use Optifine either so that should be taken into consideration.


    Got an Athlon x3 and I know it is slow and old But before that I had a Pentium 4 and I just got what I could with my money at the time im hoping to get a new cpu this Christmas.
