to hide the fact that we can’t currently just “show things as they are”.

thanks :)  I get annoyed sometimes at all the fancy tricks people have to do with data, with images, videos, text, computer interactivity and stuff, to hide the fact that we can’t currently just “show things as they are“.  There’s data compression tricks, because there’s not enough space on computers to show the whole things… images have to be tiled when they’re too big to make it easier to process… screen resolutions are way too small compared to what they could be…

and everything’s too flat.

I mean I like things the way they are – great improvements from the past..

But we still have to worry about “frame rates” for videos… video games have lag in multiplayer… 3D has to be rendered in 2D using tricks that will seem old fashioned in just a few years to come.

I know it can’t be helped but I guess I’m never satisfied :P
