Can someone actually confirm whether an upgrade from Windows 7 retains that license or not? And what happens when you change HDD's and thus have to do a clean windows 10 install???? Does that mean the license evaporates if you switch hardware?

It's supposed to deactivate the windows 7 license and turn it into a windows 10 license when you upgrade. Then, once you've upgraded your PC, it essentially becomes a windows 10 stand-alone license.

Love or hate Windows 10, what GOG is doing to prepare for it is fantastic.

Over at Steam, they're like "Yeah whatever. Who gives a shit whether it'll work or not."

I've watched some Quin videos on his monk with the Kanai's cube on the PTR, and it's pretty freaking ridiculous how powerful this item is.

They claim the factory maxed out production and can't make anymore. Sounds like a load of BS to me.

Why? Factories actually are limited in how much stuff they can make in any given timeframe. Since I doubt Bethesda built or hired an entire factory to make pipboys, they likely just rented a production run in an existing factory chain, and said production run was probably for something like 10K units. And if said factory doesn't have availability to extend the production run, then you literally cannot have any more plastic stuff made. (Unless you decide to hire another factory to make more, but that'd be pretty damn expensive.)

Cool, but please let me actually DO something in your beautiful, beautiful open city. Like, let me go out into it and just enjoy it freely, rather than having to do it during a mission.

Even though it might looks simple and silly, Rocket League is great fun to play with friends.

ITs just a very fun game.

Quick and easy to get going with matches only lasting 5 mins.

Free this month on psn+ for ps4.

Damn. Xbox gold has like some kind of shitty indie game and Black Flag.

This is what we get for fracking.


Okay, fracking does not cause a 4.5 Richter scale earthquake. The 0.8 ones etc, yes, but not one that you can feel 300 miles away from the epicenter.

Steam was at 1 billion in... 2012, I believe? And they'd been having 30% year over year growth, so if that continues, it's easy to see they'd be right around the 2 billion dollar mark by now. of course, I'm not sure that that 30% sustained itself since there is a lot more competition now.

Even so, Steam is essentially just a money printing press.

I I can't help but wonder if the TV networks are trying to push back to cable by making streaming more and more expensive. As well as making each services offerings more fractured.

You don't have to wonder about that, that's absolutely 100% true. This is what happens when ISPs are also the TV providers. Everyone who cuts the cord is a drop in revenue for them, so they jack up the prices for everyone else to compensate.

They're still beholden to shareholders, so they still have to keep increasing revenues even though they refuse to build out their networks to reach new consumers, so the only way they have of increasing revenue is to just jack up the price for everything, year after year after year.

hey, grease a few palms in DC and everything's a-okay.

As for ESPN, I don't even understand why anyone watches it anymore. It used to be a good sports channel, now it's more like some stupid MTV wannabe.

While it's cool that you can wirelessly charge your cellphone off your monitor, it just adds needless peripherals and jacks up the price.

As for the snakebite guy... :-facepalm-:
