I don't see many people talking about their kids around here. Makes me wonder how many other members are DINKs in their 30's (or up).

How are circles better?

They're usable and intuitive. Circles don't feel tacked on like lists. It took me a long time to figure out how to even use lists. Google+ schema is based around your Circles. By default, you are just posting to the Circle.

I'm not worried about it going away. It's actually getting heavy usage in the professional areas.

I've not powered the thing on in like two months...and short of GTA5 (current E3 MIA), I see nothing on the horizon that interests me.

I'm glad to see you write this. I hadn't played anything except Rocksmith for the past few months. I was watching the E3 presentation last night, and it all looked so damned boring. Just more and more of the same thing. I was starting to think it was just me, and I was getting tired of gaming after all these years, but it looks like I'm not the only one unimpressed with what's being offered these days.

the government there sticks up for the people!? Why can't that happen here!?

Didn't you get the note? The government helping people is socialism, and we don't want any of that in the U.S.

Yeah, I need to get my imax ticket.

JFYI, unlike Dark Knight, it wasn't shot for IMAX. It'll be an up-convert. Although it might be worth the extra price if you have a real IMAX screen nearby, just to get the bigger image.

I classify the whole Star Wars genre as B flicks IMO. And Lucas was doing nothing new in utilizing classic mythologies for his work.

You're right. They are B flicks, and they were produced to be that way. Same with Indiana Jones. Lucas has openly, and repeatedly said this. Just as he's repeatedly said that he intentionally took themes from classic mythology.

As for Lucas's hurt feelings, my impression is that the prequels were very much his vision, done the way he wanted. I think he understands what people don't like, but he decided that he didn't want to make what other people wanted - he wanted to make what he wanted. Then a whole bunch of people told him what he liked was crap. At this point, he thinks his taste are completely out-of-line with the majority of the public, so he's giving up on trying to make stuff for them.

Lots of places have research reactors.

Yep. Even my tiny college had one when I was there, although it's been gone for a while.

Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc... don't want it to go away. Sure they use it to launch costly lawyer wars against each other, but more importantly for them they can crush potential competition.

No chip on most cards in the US, just a magnetic strip. Since roughly 99.99% of readers are magenetic strip only, I wouldn't expect this to change any time soon.

Tupac "hologram" merely pretty cool optical illusion.
More on that here: http://vimeo.com/7047856

That's a bit disappointing. I thought someone had come up with some working hologram system, but it just turns out to be a variation on a 19th century parlor trick.

it still doesnt change the FACT that used game sales hurt the publisher.

Its not really an argument, you cant argue about facts, because facts are truth.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's not a fact. Used game sales increase the overall market size of the gaming industry. Profits from used game sales may not directly go to the publisher, but an increased market does benefit publishers.

I can't say for a fact that used sales increase or decrease publishers bottom lines, because the numbers don't exist. And neither can you.

Awesome looking grill. Pricey for charcoal, but it looks like it will last forever. If you can find a way to vent the top, you might even be able to do some decent bbq on that thing.

If I understand your thinking, companies should be criminally liable for the content of ads they post if the ads turn out to be deceitful, since they should have reviewed all the ads before-hand, but it's okay if they don't review the ads before hand because sometimes the ads are okay. So, companies should always review ads, except for when they don't have to.

Did I get that right?

If you're going to take that position, then every media company is responsible for helping criminals -- including newspapers, TV networks, magazines, radio stations, and internet sites.

Since you consider Blue's to be criminally responsible, I'd suggest you stop coming here, or else you're also responsible for supporting them.

The only way Google could ever prevent this from happening is to have someone individualy review every single ad posted for any potential deceptive practices.

Should TV networks also be required to vet the claims in every commercial they air?

according to reviews and suggestions, this grill should last at least a decade.

Had mine for about 15 years, and it's holding up just fine. I think the most important thing you can do is get a grill cover. If it's not sitting out in the rain, there's much less chance it's going to rust. I also clean the grates after every use, and haven't had to replace them, yet.

Few people are still buying desktops. Corporations moved on. Individuals moved on. The benefits they offer over laptops are non-existent unless you're building yourself

Maybe you should read your own links.

"By format type, desktop PCs are still SMBs' choice of device type with unit sales equaling 61.3 million"

And all those companies that are switching to laptops, do you know what else they're buying? Docking stations, mice, keyboards and monitors, so people can use their laptops as desktops.

Kinda getting sick of hearing outrage over labor conditions at Foxconn

I'm tired of seeing stories about Kim Kardashian and the Real Housewives of Orange County. What's with all the Hillbilly shows on TV? I wish the city would do something about the stench on 1st street. It's disgusting. My knee has really been bothering me this week.
