How about business? What do you think they prefer?

Pads are near pure entertainment. Portable DVD players feel rejected.

If you have a job where you can get everything done on a tablet, you're not actually working

Dear general internet users,

Posting comments or pictures where you make fun of others on facebook is not the same as sharing a crude little chuckle with your mate. Its more like getting a bullhorn and shouting douchy things to all your friends, family and acquaintances and their friends and acquaintances, and so on. So instead of just getting a return chuckle from your buddy, you end up looking like a massive tool to everyone.

You mean an agency where many of the positions don't even require a GED has a problem with "misconduct"? Imagine that. If I remember correctly when they introduced the body scanners, they said their employees were professionals and privacy concerns weren't a problem. I don't even think it took a month for pictures to show up on the internet.

What good is it if they throttle Youtube and Netflix?

Guess its their subtle way of telling people to torrent

Skyrim is insane. Much love to the game. My Skyrim Legendary Bible Encyclopedia is within arms reach. I am afraid to open it!

There's so much to do its almost overwhelming. I feel like I can't move without tripping over a new quest. Not that, that's a bad thing, it just takes a little prioritizing.


...watch out for bears

I wish the guy had stuck to his guns and kept the character up. He was reporting public information released by SOE. He didn't create the name, he has no control over the names existence on SOE, and him taking down the name certainly won't stop it from existing.

What a gross little wannabe patent troll.

Somehow i doubt rift gained 600k subs directly from wow.

599,999. I went to GW2.

I'll return to WoW with the next expansion. I really want them to announce a new Warcraft RTS though. The story has gone stale since Arthas was defeated.

They setup a lot of storylines in WC3, and played them all out by Wrath. I wonder when they'll really get around to Sargeras though, he's technically the ultimate badguy. Maybe they're saving it for when they can't think up anymore filler like pandas.

The company mocked up a series of tweets from three genuine Twitter accounts, and used them in a promotional blog post. All without the account owners' knowledge or consent.

Is Mattrick working for twitter too? Business ethics, the tooth fairy, and Santa Claus, all of these have much more in common than previously thought.

I picked this up in the summer sale. I've not invested a lot of time in it (so many other games to play), but so far I'm enjoying it. It feels a lot more like diablo II than diablo 3 does; even the music is similar. I'm glad they've had a lot of success.

Those Beats headphones are such a rip-off. Designed by Monster, the company known for selling way overpriced stereo cables. I watch people walking around with those things on, and then watch a movie like National Lampoon's Vacation and laugh. The headphones the kids wear in that movie were SMALLER than the Beats headphones. We're going forward, in reverse.

Actually their priceless, how else are you going to spot the douches with ease?

I'd be curious to see how they stack up against other similarly priced headphones. At $300 they're in the same category as a lot of the big name audio mid-lines. If they're anything like Monster cables they're no different than products 1/10th their price

Yeah. Paying taxes is evil. Let the people pay taxes, not us multi-billion companies.
Nothing is stopping you from off-shoring your money either.

Because normal people and small businesses don't have a fleet of lawyers and accountants to keep the IRS from slapping them with tax dodging charges like big corporations do?

As much as I've been disappointed acti-blizz lately, I'd hate to see them taken out like this. I understand the karmic joy one might experience by seeing a company that's seemingly, and increasingly doing it for the money, being destroyed by a company that is designed to suck up money while producing nothing of real value. Maybe its the idea that someday acti-bizz can redeem themselves, or the thought that many wonderful IPs, however misused they currently are, will be sucked into the cancerous void that is Vivendi.

I've not played the original, but SC2 was great. How can you say no to more Spathi?

It's simple, dipshit, Facebook isn't about to send 50 guys with body armor and machine guns to knock down your door for something stupid. I trust them with my information because I know WHY they want it. (To make me spend money)

^This. The consequences for Facebook misinterpreting something you say and the government misinterpreting things is a bit different. Point in case the kid that got thrown in jail for making a joke in bad taste. Facebook probably just sent him ads for Devry because he mentioned education. The authorities threw him into one of Texas' lovely prisons. I'm aware that wasn't the NSA's doing, but my point remains the same, bad shit happens when the government overreacts.

Good Luck With That.


It doesn't even stand a good chance against the PS4 in the US. I think they're back to the first stage of grief over their already dead product. I know we've already seen anger and bargaining.

At this point, Skyrim has GOT to be very close to the biggest success story in video game history.

Anyone tried Monaco?

Yeah I gave in on the first day when it was 40% off, I had been hoping for a better discount, but figured that was going to be the limit. I think the game is too popular right now for them to consider discounting it even more. Maybe come Christmas time it'll hit 50-66% off. Its a lot of game for 35$, so no regrets there.

EDIT: Oh yes picked up torchlight II as well. Its everything Diablo 3 isn't i.e., good.

Amusing on many levels
