130. Steam and all that Feb 7, 2005, 22:57 Tigger
Well, since I posted off topic, I should post on topic, huh?

I used to hate Steam; it was problematic to get going in the beginning and I didn't like the idea of Valve knowing when I play games.

That was until 2 things happened:

1) Steam started working right.
2) I realized that even games that check for updates when they load can basically be changed to do the same thing.

I have EZ-Pass, for crying out loud! The state government knows I pass the tollbooth every day at 8am at 20MPH on my way to work and 5:35pm at 25MPH on my way home after work. Some people here are bitching about how Steam is 'watching them'. Hello?! Are you forgetting that just about everything we do today has a paper trail of some kind? The arguement is pointless.

If you use a cell phone, send e-mail, or use Reward Zone points at Best Buy, someone somewhere is watching you.
