There's something amusing about WinZip still kicking after all of these years.

And still charging thirty dollars.

For something I can get done for free out of the box in Windows.

They don't even care about the sale price of Winzip, since they know full well nobody ever buys it anyway.

They make their money solely through auditing corporations, finding all the "trial" copies of winzip that the staff of said corporations has installed, then charging insane penalties for said unlicensed copies. (thousands of dollars per copy.)

You seem upset. Did your complimentary sack of money not get delivered? I apologize for that, I'll have it sent out right away and......oh wait you aren't in politics? Never mind.

Comcast is THE worst, no doubt. However, I can't see a company firing an employee just because another company calls and complains that said employee isn't paying his bill. But then again maybe I am missing something. Or maybe I am underestimating just how vile corporate America really is.

PWC fired him because Comcast claimed he was basically threatening their employees, and throwing PWC's name around.

He claims that's untrue. Only the tape will know the truth, but since Comcast will undoubtedly mysteriously "lose" the tape, I'm going to believe the guy.

Oh, and have no doubt that companies would do shit like this. Comcast is probably a 10+ million dollar customers of PWC in that office, so one call from Big Muckity Muck at Comcast to PWC, and PWC will be out in the streets sucking dick to try to keep their business. Firing one employee? SURE!

Limited quantities of a digital ship? Ok I'm gonna go back to not following this games development, peace out

Here is what they say regarding this:
"890 Jump sales are limited for the same game-balancing reason as the Idris; it's a big part of our universe, but it shouldn't be everywhere at launch."

890 Jump sales are limited because when things are limited, they sell better.

Every car manufacturer knows this.

Blablablablablablablabla. You fuckers do this every time. You'll do it again with your next game too.

You're one of the worst devs when it comes to releasing games, and you're matched up with one of the worst publishers when it comes to releasing games, so I'm going to say that your next game is going to suck just as bad, and all your sheeple fans will still buy it, and you'll all go "Eh, they keep buying it, so let's just keep shoveling shit out the door."

"5 Dirty Tricks Apple Uses to Get You to Buy a New iPhone."

You're normally more selective than this, Blue. That is a Grade-A example of a useless clickbait article.

Dude, it's cracked. Did you really expect something meaningful?

I thought the one point about them using trick photography to make the phone seem slimmer was pretty cool, though.

That's funny, because at least the police is usually able to capture a drunk burglar. The FBI/NSA and their success against Chinese hackers is roughly 0%.

Good to see Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising on that Humble Flash Bundle - it was a pretty cool mix between Battlezone (the RTS one) and the classic Carrier Command with a storyline narrated by Tom Baker to boot. Totally worth playing.

It's been one of my favorite games of all time. I've replayed it just about every year or so ever since it was released in 2000.

So I'm sure Arno will be there for every single important event that happened during the French Revolution, right? I mean, it was awesome when Connor got to be there for literally everything that ever happened in American history, so I expect no less for his French counterpart.

Ubisoft Exec "So, we're releasing Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Unity, Assassin's Creed Rogue AND the Crew basically all within a week from one another?"

Ubisoft Marketoid "Yes! Awesome, right?!"

Exec "And this is in the same week, even the same DAY, that things like Dragon Age Inquisition and the upgraded version of GTA5 come out, and just a week later than the next Call of Duty launches?"

Marketoid *nods furiously* "Yes!"

Exec "So not only are we competing with really big titles from our competition, but in essence we are in a four-way competition WITH OURSELVES?"

Marketoid "It's so brilliant I could cry!"

Exec *chokes the fucking shit out of marketoid* "Delay the Crew! DELAY IT!"

This was a Kickstarted game that came with complimentary always-on DRM? o_O

I'm glad I never gave them a dime.

Got any recommendations for something else? I used to frequent Newscientist, but ugh, all that locked content got to me eventually.

Sadly, no. The few I used to read have all gotten pretty biased and one-sided, or locked behind paywalls, so...

I was, like everyone else, I suppose, shocked at Chewie's death. But they handled it pretty well and gave a lot of thought and weight to it.

Thought and weight? They dropped a fucking MOON on him, but the Falcon can fly away, even though they were close enough to it happening that Han was trying to REACH OUT to Chewie. (IIRC, only read that terrible, terrible fucking book once, and it was a long time ago. That entire Yuuzhan Vong series was awful.)

RA Salvatore is a fucking hack.

A question, please.

What with all the revelations from #gamergate, ArsTechnica's senior video game editor, Kyle Orland, has been seriously implicated. However, what does this say about the rest of the ArsTechnica website?

Personally, I have never seen it as "gaming" website, I've always gone there for technology and science news and interests. Since the senior staff of ArsTechnica hasn't seemed to respond in any way to all these allegations against one of their own, can we assume that the rest of the website is just as corrupt and not to be trusted in bringing objective and unbiased technological and scientific journalism?

They're not corrupt, but they are pretty one-sided in their scientific reporting, so keep that in mind when you read their articles.
