"Kinect for Windows v2 Sensor costs $199.00"
I am sure that will sell well.

Did anything worthwhile come out of the last kinect unbundling? I know there were a lot of people making demos of their rooms, etc...


They actually came up with some cool applications for the original Kinect. It was used in the medical field (surgery I think? I can't be arsed to look it up), they used it to let children with physical handicaps draw and things like that.

So it did cool stuff, but it's all very very niche (which, let's be honest, is really the only purpose it has anyway, since it's not as if PC games will let you use it as a controller.)

They may sell a few ten thousands units at that price, but that'll be it.

When approached about the error by her grandson Comcast initially said they'd only provide a six month refund ($174). Once the issue received news attention Comcast stated they'd offer a full refund.

Fucking Comcast. What an unbelievable bunch of fucking bastards.

The guy has been able to work on some of the most impressive procedural generating mechanisms we've ever seen. Quite frankly, I think he's already made it worth my 20 bucks just from the videos he's produced.

If he eventually burns out, just release the game in whatever state it's in, and I'll call it good value.

We should be able to get animals like this removed from assholes like this and bar them from ever having ANY kind of pet.

I agree that it's too easy for assholes to get a pet, but everyone always says "Why don't they take those poor dogs (cats, pets, whatever) away from those people?" and never give a thought to what will happen to those dogs if they do. (hint: They go to a kill shelter.)

If society ever collapses and its total anarchy I'm going to shoot those sumbitches first.

Would you let the dog out after and make it fend for itself? Or would you take care of it?

You CAN actually call the SPCA and have them come investigate, but it needs to be really bad before they will take action. Again, because they know that most dogs they remove from their owners wind up being lethally injected six months later because nobody will adopt them...

string beans and carrots.

Hahah. Train your dog, exercise it regularly, take it to the vet and don't feed it horrible bullshit. It really isn't that hard to give a pet a decent life.

Just to verify, you're not saying that string beans and carrots are bad for dogs, right? I don't think you are, but just checking.

Carrots are great for a dog, and most that I've had absolutely love them. Get a bag of baby carrots, and that's a healthy and delicious treat for your dog.

Your California Cable TV Company Missed an Appointment? The Law Protects Cable TV Subscribers.

I thought this was pretty cool. I had no idea that there was any legal recourse for that.

As with most laws it sounds cool, but the fine print makes it basically impossible to actually make a successful claim.

"If the service connection or repair is not commenced within the specified four-hour period, except for delays caused by unforeseen or unavoidable occurrences beyond the control of the company, the subscriber may bring an action in small claims court against the company for lost wages, expenses actually incurred or other actual damages not exceeding a total of six hundred dollars ($600)."

(emphasis mine.)

Cable Co: "Our agent had a flat tire. Sorry."

And you're done.

Technically travelers with any US airline have similar protections in place. I missed a flight from Chicago to Amsterdam once because my first flight to Chicago was three fucking hours late. So when I demanded they give me my restitution, they simply said "Sorry, the delay was due to the weather, which is an uncontrollable circumstance, so we're not liable."

The weather had been gorgeous all day in the US, and especially on the route I flew. It was blue skies everywhere. I told the agent so, and he just shrugged and again said it was due to the weather and I would not receive restitution.

All those laws are congressmen just pandering to voters without actually inconveniencing the corporations that pad their fucking pockets with bribes.

4. Facebook says it's sorry Jul 2, 2014, 20:18 Creston
 
Over its 10-year history, the company has repeatedly pushed its users to share more information, then publicly conceded it overstepped if an upset public pushed back.

"And yet all you moronic sheep keep using it. You deserve whatever Facebook decides to do next."

Seeing as how they're worried about "damage to the Goldman Sachs brand" (as if it could get any lower), I'm guessing there's a lot of bad shit about GS in there.

The guy who received it should forward it to every possible international news agency.

I'd rather play that guard that the spin me right round baby guy. Pretty sure I'd have to hurl after doing that.

Hehehe.
