This Dumb Decade: The 87 Lamest Moments in Tech, 2000-2009

After ten years like these, the remaining 990 in this millennium have gotta be at least a little less goofy, right?

If ever a decade began dumb, it was this one.* When clocks struck midnight on January 1st and the dreaded Y2K bug turned out to be nothing but a mild irritant, it proved once again that the experts often don’t know what the heck they’re talking about.

Which was a relief–and a fitting way to kick off the technological era we’ve lived in ever since. Yes, it’s been an amazing time. But it’s also seen more than its share of misbegotten decisions, bizarre dramas, pointless hype, and lackluster products and technologies–often involving the same people and companies responsible for all the amazing stuff.

Framerates do matter.

30 fps vs 60 fps is more better? Can you tell the difference between 30 and 60 fps? I know I sure can. I think that some game play better with lower end graphics but higher frame rates because of the smooth action on screen. Unreal tournament did a Game of the Year edition did a great job of high frame rate smooth movement. I remember loading the game up and getting 60+ fps. On my current computer it get 100-200 fps no problem. The game play is awesome, the movement is fluid and you do not miss a beat. So I think frame rates matter and so does significant-bits.com http://www.significant-bits.com/framerates-do-matter
