Well yes, but I can see that actually happen, given the parties involved

Whoa, whoa, whoa... A new operating system installation isn't carrying over the previous operating system's settings? Call the police. Hell, call the news, this is unprecedented;

Considering its an upgrade in most cases and not a fresh install and this is 2015, I don't think its an unreasonable expectation. At least where possible.

Oh I don't think so either. It's just not out of the ordinary, which is probably why MS figured they'd get away with it.

It's funny - my housemate just built a new machine. First thing he did after installing Windows 7 was open up Internet Explorer to download Firefox. Then he removed the IE icon saying "And that's the last time I'll be using that."

Windows 10 upgrade resets your default browser to Edge; Mozilla is very unhappy.

Heh, that's small potatoes compared to what they'd do a decade ago.

A decade ago it'd have uninstalled Firefox, Chrome and set your HOSTS file to redirect mozilla.org to microsoft.com.

Snowden can't realistically be pardoned, think of the floodgates it could open if he were? He's right in many ways and I'm sure several politico's even agree, but just cannot happen and it wouldn't happen anywhere.

But Petraeus can get away with it? He did it for a blowjob, and Snowden did because he loved his country, and Snowden is the one condemned? Shows just who's really running America and has been for a long time now. If they can murder Kennedy and pardon Nixon everything else is child's play.

Hey, hey, hey. We put away Reagan for Iran-Contra and Cheney for torture, didn't we?

How dare you speak ill of the great Ronald Reagan! According to all the Facebook images people post, he was our greatest President and gosh darn, things were just fine when he was around.

If he felt his actions were consistent with civil disobedience, then he should do what those who have taken issue with their own government do: Challenge it, speak out, engage in a constructive act of protest, and -- importantly -- accept the consequences of his actions


The gall of this asshole... So what they're saying is, if you got a problem you should complain to your boss at the NSA so they can disappear you. Because there's no way in hell if he tried to go thru proper channels anything would have gotten done. We wouldn't know about it and they'd have just quietly swept him under the rug (probably literally).

The only way to stop this was to bring it to the public's attention. If the American people weren't so focused on the 24 hour news cycle and what Justin Bieber is, they'd be knocking down congress' door until we put a stop to this shit.

Anyone see John Oliver's interview with Snowden? Many people don't even remember who Snowden is anymore or what exactly he did? But mention the Kardassians or Bieber...

Sure would be nice if they used some of that to... I dunno... make a game. Like the THIRD game in series of games. For some of us its been HALF our LIFE since the first game and almost that since the last....

Reminds me of that Republican that was on the House or Senate Technology committee and freely admitted he never uses a computer or has sent an email in his life.

The people making the decisions for us have no fucking clue what they're talking about.

"and still, not once was the self-driving car the cause of the accident."

I beg to differ. I bet in the majority, the car WAS the cause. Look at it. It's fucking distracting. People gawk and are all like, "What's that?" Maybe try making it less conspicuous...


So using that logic if I'm staring at a hot girl walking along the street and hit another car, its the hot girl's fault?

As a driver you're supposed to be aware and in control at all times. If the driver was distracted its their fault for allowing themselves to be distracted.

I actually like Google+. It needs a lot of work, but it shows a lot of promise too. I just never use mine because almost nobody I know uses theirs.

You're going to end up with far more GG critics in prison than GG supporters if laws against such are enforced.

I can't wait. You're also going to find a lot of SJW's, atheism+ and so on supporters in jail.

See but you're so quick out of the gate with the SJW stuff, that I can't really believe that it's just about ethics in journalism. Someone tell me, what does GG want? Please.


You imply that GamerGate is just one entity/thing.

7. Xen not so bad. May 5, 2015, 23:10 mystery8
 
You guys will probably think I'm a freak, but I actually didn't mind Xen. It was difficult and tricky, but it was pretty different and out there. I remember the ambient sounds creeping me out. And it felt like I was truly all by myself with no backup.

The final boss though was a bitch. hated that.

This is a bunch of lies. They are essentially using coal power but trade kW with wind utilities. So they paid some wind people off to make the claim but actually used coal power. Nothing more then playing hide the salami with the utilities. Just like 75% of household "recycling" goes to the dump. Oh crap there I go stating facts again....

Can you provide a source for your claims?

Humanist to me implies that one is doing work for the good of all humans. This woman is not. She is only doing it for herself.

They always call it a "restructuring", as if its not a horrible thing. Is that really necessary? Why not just call it what it is? They're not fooling anyone.

I never understood how you can run out of keys of a digital title with a non-physical, digital key? How is that possible?


=-Rigs-=

Maybe they create a list of say 10,000 keys which they have to add to their database as valid keys and that list then gets sent to Steam to hand out.

Not sure if it works that way, but maybe. Regardless you'd think these days that the process could just be automated so that if the supply gets low it automatically creates new keys, or just makes them on the fly as people buy the game.

I found it bizarre too and sometimes wondered if maybe they just put that message up when they wanted to stop selling something and possibly turn sales for it back on.
