Refunds for Some Korean Diablo III Owners

WSJ has word that Blizzard will be offering some Diablo III owners in South Korea refunds over complaints about connectivity issues impeding play that prompted the Korean FTC to raid Blizzard's Seoul offices (thanks VG247). Here's word:

In a message posted on its website, the company said Diablo III players who are less than Level 40, about two-thirds of the way through the program can apply for a refund from June 25 to July 3.

Blizzard will also accept returns from any players less than Level 20, around a third of the way through the program within 14 days of purchase from now on.

In early June, the company set up more servers in Korea to cope with connectivity issues. To compensate users further, Blizzard said it would offer Diablo III users a 30 day free trial of another hot online game, Star Craft: Wings of Liberty.

If we decided that internet was a national resource and that every single person in the country needed to have state of the art internet, we *could* do it in a generation, easily. It'd just take a lot of effort and a lot of money.

There have been plans by the DOT to start putting fiber into every new mile of road/interstate they lay down. Their thinking is that that way, it's not as big an investment for the telcos to hook people up with FTTH if they can connect it at the nearest highway.

Of course, fuckers like AT&T and Warner still bitch that it'll be too expensive, and then they introduce more caps.

The real problem is we let corporations get away with simply charging more for shit, thereby increasing their profits. If they can just increase their profits by upping their profits, why would they ever have an incentive to actually invest and try to grow their market?

We need to get rid of both the GOP and the Democrats, and let somebody else be in charge for awhile.
