Who the fuck doesn't support IE8?

A better question is, who the fuck still uses IE8 in 2012?

http://www.mozilla.org
https://www.google.com/chrome
http://www.opera.com

Take your pick.

On a side note that Android figure seems extremely low. You're selling millions of handsets a month and the overall figure is only $550 million? That seems way off.

Seems right to me. Most Android apps are not worth paying for (largely a result of how frustrating Android is to develop for and the poor quality control of Android MarketGoogle Play), and Android phones generally target a low-income, younger demographic that may not have the means to pay for apps. This is compounded by the fact that there are no Android MarketGoogle Play gift cards.

MS has removed the ability to go to classic windows mode from windows 8 to lock in everyone into the new metro UI (in other words, dumbing down PC's to make them closer to phone/tablet style). Everything is going to be full screen now. I don't even know why they bother to call it "windows" anymore. So yeah, if stardock can restore some of that, then they will make a pile of money.

Maybe you should try the Windows 8 Preview before you make yourself look like a fool.

Huffington post has an amazing crap-ware video player on their site that when you press pause to silence it (besides it automatically starting) does not actually pause nor silence the damn thing. Blocked the whole player, good riddance.

The problem is that you were reading the Huffington Post.

Yeah, I have no idea how it figures out the host but it seems like it prefers people based on connection quality (upload speed and NAT quality most likely). After getting cable Internet I would almost always be made the host after the original host would leave a game, even in large games, but I was not so lucky with earlier connection types.

Team Mafiya Work with team blips enabled is actually quite enjoyable especially with a decent team and good settings, but it does have some serious bugs that crop up from time to time. I think I might download this again and give it another go tomorrow.

GTA IV uses peer-to-peer matchmaking through GFWL, not dedicated servers, so I don't think that is the case here.

Thats assuming cheaters create a new steam account for each game they buy/play/cheat-on... something that I think is rather unlikely... people are stupid, and cheaters are the definition of stupid.

Cheaters are stupid but they are often very persistent. You would be amazed at what some cheaters will do in order to continue cheating after being banned.

I guess I'm lucky. The one time I've ever needed to call roadside assistance (through MasterCard), they told me it could take an hour for the truck to get there but it only took 15 minutes.

That's for new members only BTW!

Maybe I misread this but existing members get the discount too. I got an email with the code, and I didn't even "Like" their Facebook page to get it.

I'm looking at Japan. Massive loss in the older population, with a serious gap in younger workers required to fill the gap. Nearly 40% of their population will be retiring in the next 10 years. And if I'm going to be getting screwed, I know exactly how I'm going to get screwed and in what way. Plus I don't mind the lifestyle, or the cultural mentality.

Kind of a hijack but oh well...
They also have a very homogeneous population with a long and proud history of isolationism and racism. Even in the face of their demographic pressures they still cannot overcome their fear of immigration. In that way it is basically the complete opposite of Canada. Good luck integrating in that kind of society.
