Just ban all hashtags, it's for the betterment of society. Seriously though, if a company is going to try and regulate what its users can or can't post there is always going to be those gray areas where people think one thing that is not banned is worse than something that is. Usually there is a reason, case, behind something like that. I'd hate to see picture/s that got #foodorgasm banned.

I can't believe a virtual item is still worth $28,000 for a game made in 1998... but yeah, it's her clumsy fault and rules are rules.

Well she is 64, so you'd expect her to have a priceless antique or two

It is amazing how Apple manages to convince people their super awesome ultra fast hip iWhatever, is complete and total crap 6 months after they buy it so they upgrade to the newest one. If only those people would realize its complete and total crap before they buy it then could avoid the whole vicious circle.

You convince them the same way you've always done. Make a few marginal, tiny upgrades to the hardware, up the number by 1, and do a huge ad campaign in which you basically tell people that they aren't hip anymore if they don't have the latest and greatest product.

It's sold billions and billions and billions of dollars worth of hardware before. No reason to think it won't now. Apple's sheep fans gladly bought an iPhone 5s, because, well, there's an S in it! So it's SPECIAL!

One of the girls at my church awhile ago complained that she "was the only one in her class who didn't have an iPhone 5!" (she had to make do with a 4s.) I wanted to freaking smack her.

**Spoilers**

The final unlock is at $100 million. It's just a black background jpeg with the words 'HAHAHA SUCKERS!!!!' written on it.

Seriously though, I hope it turns out great. A comprehensive space sim game would rock.

Does this mean we can downgrade Experian's credit score? Then they won't be able to afford their interest payments and hopefully go out of business. A guy can dream can't he?

I spent hours fixing my machine after installing 8.1. Sound card was automatically uninstalled and got messed up somehow preventing reinstall without manual cleaning. All my themes vanished. Various programs that ran on vanilla 8 won't start without setting a compatibility mode now. Had a weird bug where one of the new popup tooltips for a hot corner wouldn't go away without a registry edit. Don't recall having this much trouble with the old service packs.

Way to go MS, make that slide into oblivion classy.

I'm running Vista and have experienced minor issues the last few updates. I've also heard people having issues with updates on 7. Makes me wonder if their whole update QC department has just taken a nosedive.

I've never liked the hair in Bethesda games, it's always looked like someone just plopped an ill fitting wig on, specially on the Khajiit.

Well they do have a lot of other MOBA games to stealborrow from, so that should make it decent. The biggest question is just how far will they go with the micro-transactions.

Kutcher being the highest paid TV actor is a sign of all that is wrong in the world. /overdramatic

I do find him obnoxious though and its unfortunate that someone I perceive to have far less talent than many other TV actors is being rewarded so handsomely. The only thing I ever thought he did a half decent job of, was on That 70's show playing a self-centered moron.

Good for Blizzard, bots suck. I doubt it'll have a tremendous effect, but at least its something.

How am I the first to mention eyeballing the word "multiplayer" tucked away in that text?

It was talked about for II. I remember them having a poll on their site, and people wanted other features instead. It could be awesome implemented correctly, but games would take FOREVER!

Not sure if this is good news or not. Galactic Civ-II is probably the only game that has ever caused me to become completely unaware of time. JUST ONE MORE TURN

Good work, government. Really, just a job WELL FUCKING DONE. Vote yourselves another raise, you clearly deserve it.

Please everybody, vote all these fucking incumbents out of office at the next election(s).

I wish it was so easy, but remember, the only idiot you have the power to vote out is YOUR idiot You have no control over all of the other idiots in the House, and their districts are usually so gerrymandered that they have no fear of losing. I saw a statistic on The Daily Show the other day that mentioned that there is a 91% incumbency rate in the House. An MSNBC article mentions that Congressional approval is down to 5%...

Yeah, but that's why I keep asking everyone to vote THEIR incumbent out of office. I can only vote to get rid of my shitwicks, but you can vote to get rid of your shitwicks. We can all do this together.

Odds are it isn't going to happen, most people vote Rep/Dem just because "that's what they do," but at least we can try.

Also, who in fuck's name are that 5% that still think Congress is doing a good fucking job??? Seriously, can we have those idiots arrested?


I tried to keep Cruz out... sorry about that guys

I wondered why traffic was relatively good today, and still didn't realize today was Columbus day once I got to work and noticed there weren't as many people in as normal. So hooray for Clueless day.

News Comments > Console Emulation Through Steam
42. Re: Console Emulation Through Steam Oct 14, 2013, 09:17 Pigeon
 
I expect the console makers to react to this, specially if it becomes popular. Bringing it to Steam makes more mainstream, which means more people downloading illegal ROMs. Now if the big console companies were smart they'd sell their own digital copies to be played on the emulators. $5 a game for something they created 15+ years ago = easy revenue. Adding some light DRM via Steam would probably take very little effort.

Nothing says productivity like the big fisher-price "icons" of metro. This should be no surprise, IT generally gets the say in what the companies buy and they don't want a drastic, or even moderate, usability change because they're the ones that have to deal with the calls when someone can't figure out how to open excel anymore.

If only big-brother wouldn't regulate our labor industry we wouldn't have to outsource so many jobs to China forcing them to enslave their own population to make cheap products for the rest of the world Rolleyes

Its seems like every electronics manufacturer in China has some pretty horrid conditions/practices. Who isn't doing something like this over there?
